For a long time now I have been studying little snippets of Japanese each day. Or at least trying to. Sometimes it is as little as looking over a few words.
I made this blog to post about Japanese and other languages but I had not been posting very much. I liked what I posted, and I put time and effort into it, but it was sporadic.
So let’s try posting once a day for a year. Just small entries if I don’t have much time, and longer ones when I do.
For this first entry, let’s talk about how to say “Let’s Go!” in Japanese.
Making a “let’s” form of a verb in Japanese can be done by changing a “masu” (ます) form of a verb to a “mashou” (ましょう) form.
Here are some examples:
go, let’s go
eat, let’s eat
“benkyō shimasu”, “benkyō shimashō”
study, let’s study
start, let’s start
See you in the next entry for something else. Hey…that’s tomorrow!
