しゅみ は なん です か。

しゅみ は なん です か。= What is your hobby?


なん or なに are both question words for “what?" Use the particle か at the end of the sentence to express that it is a question.


To tell someone what your hobby is, say: しゅみ は (insert hobby here) です。


There is a large list of hobbies in vocab this week you can reference to find your hobby.

If you wanted to say “My hobby is cooking.” You would say: しゅみ は りょうり です。


To express that you have multiple hobbies, use the particle in between them to list multiple hobbies.


If your hobbies are video games, swimming and drawing, you can say:

しゅみ は テレビゲーム すいえい え です。


Before taking your quiz, please review your grammar notes and the vocabulary flashcards below:

My favorite sports team is the Stumptown Paddlers. I used to live in Portland, OR and during my time there I used to paddle with the Stumptown Paddlers dragon boat team. Dragon boat racing comes from China, not Japan, but it is a lot of fun, is great exercise, and a great way to make friends and meet new people. Here is a photo of me with my team. I'm in the back wearing the bright yellow life jacket. :)
