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 春

Reads: haru
Means: spring of the four seasons

How to write 春👇



1. I'm going to spend this spring in

/Toukyou de kono haru o su-gosu/

→東京(とう-きょう, tou-kyou) means

東 means "east" and 京 is same as 京都
(きょう-と, kyou-to).

Have you ever heard Kyoto??

It was the capital city of Japan long time

So 東京 meams like "the east capital city"

👉東京で means like "in Tokyo"

で is used like this.....

It's hard to explain...XD

For example,

公園(こう-えん, kou-en)... a park
公園で(de) ...in the park

飛行機(ひ-こう-き, hi-kou-ki)...a plane
飛行機で... in the plane

So 東京で means "in Tokyo"

It's simple.

👉この(kono) means this

So この春(kono haru) menas "this

👉過ごす(す-ごす, su-gosu)

How to write 過👇

This means "to spend time"

Yes, the kanji looks very difficult.

But see it carefully, and write it
many times so that you'll remember.

Japanese children study kanji like

過ごす means "to spend time", to be
sure, but we use the present form as a
future form.

If you heard this for the first time here,
you must be surprised.

But this is the detail Japanese grammar.

I've explained about many forms so you
may get confused.

So I made a a list👇

・Present form (I do)←in Japanese
...Used as a future form
(I'll do)

・ Progressive form (I'm doing)
...Used as a present and a progressive
form (I do or I'm doing)

・ Past form(I did)
... Used as a present perfect form
(I've already done)

・Past progressive form (I was doing)
...Used as a past and past progressive
form (I did or I was doing)

Yes it's so confusing.

But the form grammar is just that.

You don't have to hurry to remember

I keep to explain about this forever lol

So 過ごす is a present form but it means
about the future, "to be going to spend"

So 東京でこの春を過ごす means

"I'm going to spend this spring in Tokyo"

So that's all today.

Thank you so much for reading!

I hope this helps you a lot!

See you next time~~
