Hello everyone.
How are you?

Thank you so much for coming here.

It's kÜshi.

🔴I help you study kanji and Japanese
by making example sentences with

And then I explain the grammars and
all the kanji which are used in the

🔴I realized that I should make useful
sentences so that you can learn kanii
with very natural Japanese which we
usually use, not formal ones.

🔴The method to study here.

I always make very natural sentences,
so they are sometimes difficult to

But don't worry. I explain everything in

So this is one of the best methods to
study here.

1. Copy the sentences on paper

2. Read aloud the sentence while
looking it.

3. Read the explanations.

I hope this helps you a lot!

So today's kanji is 海

Reads: umi
Means: sea

How to write 海👇


1. I'm going to the sea to swim this

/kono natsu umi ni oyo-gi ni i-ku/

👉この(kono) means "this"

👉夏(なつ, natsu) means summer.

The other seasons:

春(はる, haru) means spring.
What does 春 mean?
秋(あき, aki) means autumn.
冬(ふゆ, fuyu) means winter.

So この夏 means "this summer".

👉海に(うみに, umi-ni) means "to the

oyo-gi ni i-ku)

This is a little confusing.

We use it as one verb thought it has
two verbs: 泳ぐ(oyo-gu) and 行く(i-ku).

You can put other verbs instead of 泳ぎに.

And they mean like "I go to do something"

Then you have to change the verbs' form

and the rule is a little confusing, so all you

have to do is to get used to it.

I make some example changes.

...to swim

泳ぎに行く(oyo-gu ni i-ku)
...to go to swim

...to eat

食べに行く(ta-be ni i-ku)
...to go to eat

...to see

見に行く(mi ni i-ku)
...to go to see

...to make

作りに行く(tsuku-ri ni i-ku)
...to go to make

...to talk

話しに行く(hana-shi ni i-ku)
...to go to talk

...to sign

歌いに行く(uta-i ni i-ku)
...to go to sing

All of the verbs change to like "~に行く"

You don't have to hurry to remember this


If you want to study this in detail, send me
a message~👍

I'll explain everything.

But it's very confusing XD

👉 Japanese verbs are a little strange.

They can mean "be going to do" with the

present form.

泳ぎに行く means to go to swim.

This is a present form, but it means "I'm

going to go to swim"

All verbs are like this.

For example,

🔴映画(eiga, movie)を見る(mi-ru, to see)

This means "I'm going to watch the

🔴デザート(dezaato, dessert)を食べる

This means"I'm going to have the dessert"

It's so simple.

"He reads a book every day".

The verb, reads, is a present form.

But in Japanese, we say it like


See only the verb.

Tge verb is 読んでいる, this is a

progressive form of 読む, which means

"to read"

When we mention practices, we use a
progressive form.

So この夏海に泳ぎに行く means

"I'm going to the sea to swim this

So that's all today.

Thank you so much for reading.

I hope this helps you a lot.

I'll answer all the questions.

Ask me anything without any

See you next time~~
