How to write 朝👇


1. "Ohayou" is used as a greeting of the


/ohayou wa asa no aisatsu to shite

👉おはよう(ohayou) means "Good

・こんちには(kon'nichiwa) is a greeting
of the noon, still, it can be used every time.

You can use this like "hello"

・こんばんは(konbanwa) is used only in the

You can use this like "good evening"

・おやすみ(oyasumi) is used when you go
to bed.

You can use this like "good night"

👉朝の(あさ-の, asa-no)

If you put の after nouns, you can make
them like "Tom's", "the boy's", "today's".

And you can also make them like "~of"

For example,

トムの(tomu no)... Tom's

子(こ)... child

How to write 挨👇

How to write 拶👇

👉として(to shite) is used like "as"

Yes, "as" has many usage.

としてhas one of the usages.

For example,

・You are wrong as a human being.
...君は人間 として おかしい
/kimi wa ningen to shite okashii/

This is a harsh sentence XD

→君(きみ, kimi) means "you" for

→人間(にんげん, ningen) means
"a human being"

If you find it too difficult to remember,
you don't have to hurry.

→として means "as"

So 人間として means "as a human being"

→おかしい(okashii) means "wrong"

👉使われる(つかわれる, tsuka-wareru)

This is a passive voice of 使う(tsuka-u),
which means to use.

So 使われる means "to be used"

If you put れる to verbs, you can make them
a passive voice.

But you can't make a passive voice only by
putting れる, but also by changing verbs

All of verbs end with "u".

Did you know that??

And when you make a passive voice, you
change it to "a"

And you put れる so that you can make
a passive voice.

For example,

作る(tsuku-rU)...to make
作られる(tsuku-rA reru)...to be made

食べる(ta-berU)...to eat
食べられる(ta-berA reru)...to be eaten

たたく(tatakU)...to hit
たたかれる(tatakA reru)...to be hit

見る(mi-rU) to see
見られる(mi-rA reru) to be seen

使う(tsuka-U)...to use
使われる(tsuka-wA reru) to be used

Verbs which end with just "U", it changes
to "wA", not "A"

So, 「おはよう」は朝の挨拶として使われる

This means "おはよう" is used as a greeting
of the morning.

So that's all today.

Thank you so much for reading.

If you have any questions, ask me
without any hesitation!

I hope this helps you a lot.

See you next time~~
