So I thought it would be fun to start a thread that would let you answer this exercise and get feedback on your five sentences. This way we can see if we are right or wrong and why! The basic format should be your answer in roomanji + kana/Kanji if you like and what you are trying to say. Try to be adventurous and test your knowledge as there is noting wrong with making mistakes if you learn from them. So here are my sentences which I'm sure I'll make some mistakes on so please if you spot one let me know!

その くるま が わたし の ありません
sono kuruma ga watashi no arimasen
That is not my car

わたし は たべました きのう
Watashi wa tabemashita kinou
I ate yesterday

この たてもの は おおきい です
Kono tatemono wa ookii desu
That building is big

ぎんこう は まっすぐ に こうさてん です
ginkou wa massugu ni kousaten asoko desu
The bank is straight through that intersection

なに おなまえ です か
nani onamae desu ka
What is your name?

So there we have it. Now I'm sure i have made some mistakes so feel free to leave your own sentences and help me learn from my mistakes by letting me know where I went wrong and how to correct it!

There are mistakes:

- その くるま が わたし の ありません
sono kuruma ga watashi no arimasen
That is not my car

It should be そのくるまはわたしのではありません。 but it means "That car is not mine" so if you write わたしのくるまではありません。 it means "It's not my car".
ではありません is the negative tense for です.


- わたしはきのうたべました。 I ate yesterday. In Japanese, the verb is at the end of the sentence.

- Correct (don't forget there is no blanks between words in Japanese )

- well... I suggest ぎんこうはすぐあのこうさてんです。
I'm not sure but I feel that まっすぐ is used for movement verbs

- It should be おなまえはなんですか。 おなまえ is the topic so you put it at the beginning.
