Lesson 3

In this lesson we'll be wrapping up what I consider basic japanese particles, as well as what I consider basic Japanese. It does't mean there aren't any more topics to look at (there are plenty!), but the combination of the first three lessons covers nearly everything you will need to know in order to be able to say you understand basic Japanese (ironically this means you still won't be able to count, because counting is a pretty complex issue in Japanse... O.o).

Topics covered in this lesson are:

  • Particles: も、から、まで、け(れ)ど(も)、よ、ね/な
  • Verb grammar I: The て form for verbals, and special て forms
  • Verb grammar II: How to get the most out of your 連用形
  • General grammar I: Noun adjectives and nouns
  • General grammar II: location, location, location

Like the previous two lessons, this lesson covers a lot of ground, so again don't rush things, just read the material at your own pace, and make sure to reread the whole lesson at least once after you'd covered the entire lesson a first time, a second time round many things will seem to suddenly make more sense. Good luck, and good learning ^_^

This lesson also introduces kanji in the sense that you will be set to the task of learning to draw and memorise them, so taking everything together, this is a monster lesson, and I urge you not to rush things. If it takes you a week to do this lesson, excellent! If it takes you two weeks, no worries, this is not light material.
