Japanese notes – adjectives to be continued! How to say ‘I like you’ in Japanese?

Yesterday I went to our Japanese class again, so here you go some notes on the class! We continued learning adjectives. 😘If you miss adjectives lesson 1 & 2, please check:

  • adjective basics: click here.
  • adjective past tense: click here.

This week’s adjectives are special🙃 as in other languages, those words are typically not treated as adjectives (but more likely verbs). They are

  • 上手 – be good at. Note that it is used mostly to describe others.
  • 下手 – be bad at
  • 好き – like; be fond of
  • 嫌い – dislike; hate. Note that it is a strong word. To be polite Japanese tend to use ~好きじゃありません.

All the 4 above are な adjectives (even though 嫌い ends with い). が is used between noun and adjective. 🦉Example:

  • Maple likes the park very much.
  • Mapleちゃんは公園がとても好きです。



Similarly, example #2:

  • I am not good at cooking, but I like ramen a lot.
  • 私は料理が上手じゃありません。でもラーメンがだいすきです。

Hope it all make sense. 私は日本語入力が下手ですね〜😰😵来週先生にこのことを教えないです…


PS – ä¸Šæ‰‹ is a bit arrogant to describe oneself. So 得意 can be used as replacement when to describe oneself.
