Week 7 Module 2 Lesson 6

Module Two Lesson Six Vocabulary & Grammar Quiz

An Annoucement from your teacher

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is well with how Hurricane Matthew came and went. I haven't been able to use my internet for the last four days, but I just got it back. However I am still having a slow speed issue and it is very unstable so I am going to make today's Announcement very short. Please bear with me as I grade the assignments you submitted for Lesson 6. Okay, let's get started and work to finish up all the assignments that you missed. I can see that some of you submitted your assignments, but some of those who have been badly affected by this storm might not be able to turn in your assignments for many reasons. I will be lenient about turning them in late, but try to complete everything as soon as possible.

Let's learn from what you did wrong in the lesson 6 Writing & Reading Assignment.

The particles are in bold.

1.What language do you speak?
what: nani Language: go do you speak? hanashimasuka
2. I speak English well.
In English: I watash or boku(only male) Speak: hanashimasu English: eigo well: yoku
In Japanese :Watashi wa eigo wo yoku hanashimasu.
As you see in the above sentence, the adverb well or (yoku) is in front of the verb speak(hanashimasu). The Japanese word order is kind of flexible as long as a verb is placed at the last, and you use the correct particle after each noun or phrase, but do not place any word after a verb, especially in written Japanese.
3. I speak a little Korean.
I: watashi speak: hanashimasu a litte: sukoshi Korean:kankokugo
わたし にほんごすこしはなします。( Particles are bold)
4. Where are you from?
where; doko or dochira are you from;karadesuka
どこからですか。( You don't need to mention anata or (you) in Japanese conversation if you are asking your friend or the other person)
5.I am from China.
I: Watashi am; desu from: kara China; chuugoku

 Here is an example of a dialogue for the Lesson 6 Speaking Assignment.

【Adam】どこからですか or どこからきましたか.
Where are you from or Where did you come from?
Do ko ka ra de su ka Or Do ko ka ra ki ma shi ta ka.

【Eddie】かんこくからです。(I am from Korea)
Kan ko ku ka ra de su.

【Adam】なにごはなしますか。(what language do you speak?
na ni go wo ha na shi ma su ka

【Eddie】かんこくごにほんごえいごはなします。(I speak Korean and Japanese and English)
Kan ko ku go to ni hon go to e i go wo ha na shi ma su..

そして、スペインごちょっとはなします。(And, I speak Spanish a little)
So shi te su pe in go wo chot to ha na shi ma su.

でも、ドイツをぜんぜんはなしません。(But I don’t speak German at all)

De mo, do i tsu go wo zen zen ha na shi ma sen.

【Eddie】すごいですね. That is amazing.
Su go i de su ne.

Grammar Notes.
When you use ぜんぜん(zenzen), it means not at all, and the end of the verb should be changed to a negative verb instead
