    Thumbs down Help with my Japanese Homework :-)

    はじめまして。
    hajimemashite.

    Quick Facts:
    I'm a senior at Rutgers University.
    I am taking Japanese 101 right now.
    The course/books we are using is: Genki (excellent Textbook published by Japan Times).
    It helps the student to learn 4 essential skills.
    reading,writing,speaking, and listening.
    I am in week 10 out of 14 of class.
    I am in Chapter 5 of Genki.
    I would like to keep this thread alive and for anyone as well who is a beginner like me who also needs help with Japanese Language.
    ---
    Questions:
    Homework Question:
    Write down the sentences telling if you like/dislike the things below. Use Suki and kirai(Na). and Dai for emphasis.

    Example:
    Japanese Class
    Answer: 私は日本語のクラスが大すきです。
    Romanji: watashi wa nihongo no kurasu ga daisuki desu.
    I really like Japanese Class.

    this town -> How do I say: "This town" in Japanese?
    私はしずか(な)まちがすきです。
    Watashi wa shizuka(na)machi ga suki desu.

    How would I say:
    Let's take pictures here.
    これでkorede <--is this right?
    これでしゃしのとりましょう。
    korede shashin o torimashoo.

    Lets watch this movie tonight.
    こんばんこのえいがお見ましょう。
    konban kono eiga o mimashoo.

    Let's wait in the coffee shop.
    きさてんでおまちましょう。
    kisatende o machimashoo.

    This kanji is difficult. Let's ask our teacher.
    むずかしいかんじです。musukashii kanjidesu. <- is this right?
    私たちのせんせいお___?

    can I also say: Sensei no ? would that work as: our sensei?
    watashitachi no sensei o (to ask). How do I conjugate to ask?

    Lets do the homework together.

    Thanks for all your help! An answer before 12am tonight is appreciated.

    Okay, I lost my BIG LONG message I had for you, don't have time to type another one, so I will let someone else go into details if they want.

    My quick bio:
    I'm a 2nd year grad student studying Language Acquisition and Teaching specializing in Japanese. So I love to help out where I can when it comes to the language! (I got my Bachelor's in Japanese-so fun! But a lot of work...)

    The run-down:

    most of your sentences look fine. But...

    Beware of your particle wo. You keep typing o. If you mean particle wo, make sure you type W-O, not just O. Also, with your n. Double-tap your N to make sure it shows up properly on screen (as in しゃしん).

    This - modifying a noun, you are looking for kono

    This - being a noun, you mean kore. In your context, you want koko ("here"). All three of these (kono, kore, koko) are part of the Ko-So-A-Do series. Don't know what that is? Ask your teacher, because you should!

    In your "lets see a movie" sentence, you need the particle wo (を), not o. Beware!

    In your Kissaten de omachimashou - take out that o. It looks like you tried to use particle wo again. If that's so, definitely take it out. Remember to put a small っ in your kissaten (きっさてん).

    As for asking the teacher, you need the particle "ni". Watashitachi no sensei ni kiki......... Okay, so, you are looking for the verb "kikimasu," but YOU have to finish conjugating it, okay? I know you can do it--you did it in the sentences before with the other verbs.

    And no, saying "Sensei no" is NOT the same thing as "watashitachi no sensei." In this case, "no" is showing it's possessive side, so saying "Sensei no" is saying "Sensei's...(something or other)." So be careful, it is not the same thing!

    I hope this helps. Sorry it's so short--blasted computer! Lost all my good explanations and now I'm out of time!

    がんばってください!

    Keep reviewing and practicing!

    Impressive Work! すばらしいですよ。 私もとてもたのしいとおもしろい日本語が大すきです。

    Yes I see the mistakes. Thank You very much.
    This - modifying a noun, you are looking for kono

    Kore-Sore-Are-Dore Thank you I was a little confused how to say. Let's Watch This Movie Tonight. Konban kono eiga wo mimashoo.


    In your "lets see a movie" sentence, you need the particle wo (を), not o. Beware!
    Yes. I wrote it how it was pronounced, whoops!
    In your Kissaten de omachimashou - take out that o. It looks like you tried to use particle wo again. If that's so, definitely take it out. Remember to put a small っ in your kissaten (きっさてん).

    As for asking the teacher, you need the particle "ni". Watashitachi no sensei ni kiki......... Okay, so, you are looking for the verb "kikimasu," but YOU have to finish conjugating it, okay? I know you can do it--you did it in the sentences before with the other verbs.
    I was confused before and shocked that the verb Kiku (wo) means (to listen), also means: Kiku (ni) (to ask) depending on the Particle used?
    And no, saying "Sensei no" is NOT the same thing as "watashitachi no sensei." In this case, "no" is showing it's possessive side, so saying "Sensei no" is saying "Sensei's...(something or other)." So be careful, it is not the same thing!
    Sorry for the little mistakes lol. Oh Yeah! I already knew that about Sensei.. I got it! Thanks!
    I hope this helps. Sorry it's so short--blasted computer! Lost all my good explanations and now I'm out of time!

    ありがとうございますよ。あなたのとてもたのしいとやさしい人ですよ。 私は日本語をべんきょ します。
