I'm glad to announce the release of 5 new documents that will improve your Japanese skills and let you express your ideas from English to Japanese more easily.

People learning Japanese quickly realize how different the Japanese way of thinking is different, and I'm not talking about the cultural differences. To translate a simple verb like "to hope" into Japanese, we may want to use the equivalent verb in Japanese. But what if Japanese don't use a verb to convey that idea ? How about translating it with the idea "it would be nice if...".

This is how Japanese works, there are many verbal structures that are actually quite easy and logical once we know how verbs work. And for sure feeling at ease with them will be a huge leap to the next level with little effort.

Japan Activator offers you grammatical documents that explain not only the structure but also the meaning, because it's important that it makes sense to you. Litteral transcriptions are provided to help you understand how Japanese think, making it much easier to learn and remember.

Today, I present you 5 new structures for a total of 75 structures available on the website and on JA Sensei.

verb + TAI I want to do
verb + BA II to hope, to wish
verb + TARA II to suggest
verb + TARA how to construct the conditional in Japanese
verb + WA IKENAI Not possible, to forbid

JA SENSEI USERS: please update your Grammar module by reinstalling it:

  1. Be sure you are logged in (your username is {login})
  2. Click on "Grammar" in the main menu
  3. Click on "Install"
  4. Once the progress bar has reached 100%, you can find the new documents in your module.
