Lesson 3 Grammar Recap

This week we used the counter じかん to count the number of hours:

みいにち、さんじかんテレビゲームをします。 Everyday for 3 hours I play video games


なんじかん asks "How many hours?"

なんじかんれんしゅうをしますか。 How many hours do you practice?


くらい is used after saying the number of hours to say "about" or "around" to give an estimate of how much time it takes to do something:

いつもよじかんぐらいしゅくだいをします。 I always do homework for about 4 hours.


しゅうかん is the counter for weeks:

いっしゅうかんピッザをたべません。 For one week I did not eat pizza.


なんしゅうかん asks "How many weeks?"

なんしゅうかんにほんごをべんきょうしましたか。How many weeks did you study Japanese?


かいcan be used to count the number of times something occurs:

いっしゅうかんにいっかいかいものにいきます。Once a week I go shopping.


なんかい asks "How many times?"

なんかい カナダ に いきました か。 How many times have you been to Canada?
