#30 What does 海 mean?


2018. 11.19


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
kanji.

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


🔴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
understand.

But don't worry. I explain everything in
detail.


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

1. Copy the sentences on paper
carefully.

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👇

Ex.


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

...この夏海に泳ぎに行く
/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
sea"


👉泳ぎに行く(およ-ぎにい-く,
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.



🔴泳ぐ(oyo-gu)
...to swim

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


🔴食べる(ta-beru)
...to eat

食べに行く(ta-be ni i-ku)
...to go to eat


🔴見る(mi-ru)
...to see

見に行く(mi ni i-ku)
...to go to see


🔴作る(tsuku-ru)
...to make

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


🔴話す(hana-su)
...to talk

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


🔴歌う(uta-u)
...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

rule.

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
movie"


🔴デザート(dezaato, dessert)を食べる
(ta-beru)

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

"彼は毎日本を読んでいる"

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
summer"




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
hesitation!


See you next time~~
