Lesson 8 Vocabulary & Grammar Review
わたし の おすすめ の えいが は 「もののけ ひめ」です。
My recommended movie is "Princess Mononoke."
おすすめ の のみもの は なん です か。
What is the recommended beverage?
★The next word to be aware of is どんな (do nn na) . Why? Because it's one of the most commonly misspelled words on quizzes! Remember, spelling counts!
★Finally, this week's grammar is mostly review. You can use 〜を ください exactly the same as 〜を おねがいします. What's the difference between the two?ください (please) isLESS formal way to say "please" than おねがいします (please).
おちゃ を おねがいします。 I'll have green tea, please (formal)
おちゃ を ください。 I'll have green tea, please. (still polite, but less formal)
Take a listen to this example of the Lesson 8 speaking assignment to refresh your memory:
