Grammar Corner

  • Notes on "ga arimasu" and "ga imasu"
    • Remember that with this ending "ga arimasu" (I have...), you can NOT use this with animated/living things, like with people or animals etc. "ga arimasu" = I have...(you CAN use this with objects that's NOT living).
      • Ex to use "ga arimasu": to say "I have a pencil". enpitsu ga arimaseu. えんぴつがあります。
    • To say "I have..." (to be able to use with living things) you would use "ga imasu".
      • Ex to use "ga imasu": to say "I have a cat." neko ga imasu. ねこがいます.

Please be careful with this. ^_^
