Japanese Notes – verbs with opposite meaning

Slowly moving on my Japanese learning journey… 🤨 This week I started the dictionary form but I haven’t mastered everything so I won’t risk writing a blog yet.

So… what shall I write today? I want to share some experience in verbs. The reason why I bring it up is that now they all become a bit confusing…😅 So as a study note I grouped them together for my own memory….

Here we go!

  • つけます(つけます): turn on
  • 消します(けします): turn off
  • 開けます(あけます): open
  • 閉めます(しめます): close
  • 乗ります(のります): get on (bus)
  • 降ります(おります): get off (bus)
  • 入ります(はいります): enter
  • 出ます(でます): get out
  • 入れます(いれます): insert
  • 出します(だします): pull out
  • 立ちます(たちます): stand
  • 座ります(すわります): sit
  • 使います(つかいます): use
  • 作ります(つくります): make

So most of them are opposite meaning words so I think it’s helpful to remember them together. Hope it makes sense to you!

Let me know if you have any advice on Japanese learning and would love to hear from you!
