    Red face proper object-verb agreement

    im having a very hard time in using the correct subject-verb agreement, in making a sentence...

    its even hard to decipher the correct meaning of a japanese sentence i translated...

    i hope you get what i mean...

    Japanese verb agreement is really easy, actually. In English, French, and other languages, the subject and verb have to agree. In Japanese, not so much. The person you're speaking to and the verb have to agree, but that's a completely different story, has to do with respect and so forth. Unfortunately there's a bug with the boards, so this might look really weird, but, for example, you can say:

    I go to school: ぼくは がっこうに いきます
    He goes to work: かれは かいしゃに いきます (bad translation, in context it uses て form, but it's not grammatically wrong. I'm proving a point, not being correct)
    This train goes to Tokyo Station: この でんしゃは とうきょうえきに いきます

    So you can see that the verb doesn't have to agree with the subject. Of course, you have to use the transitive (て) form when appropriate and such, but for simple subject-verb agreement, it's very simple.
