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:
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.
Similarly, example #2:
- I am not good at cooking, but I like ramen a lot.
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 – 上手 is a bit arrogant to describe oneself. So 得意 can be used as replacement when to describe oneself.
