Challenge: Write a sentence in Japanese every day!

I think it would be fun to challenge myself to write a little in Japanese every day. Please join me if you want! Bonus points if you use kanji or vocab that you learned or studied today.

If you want furigana, here’s a script for that [Userscript] Forum: IME2Furigana

I’d say
私は文法の勉強を始めたばかりだ。

Transitive 始める (unlike intransitive 始まる) is an ichidan verb, so its past is 始めた。

When you are not sure about the form, you can always use “Show inflections” at jisho.org

If you want to keep it pretty similar, here are a few small changes that I (emphasis on the I) think might help it make a bit more sense:
私は文法の勉強を始めたばかりのド素人なので許してくれませんか。

The above was a joke. Real help here:It should be 文法の勉強 in my view. Also, ばかり feels more clear than だけ here to me. Overall though, strong attempt! I knew what you were going for which is 86% of the battle in language. 頑張!

Edit: Ninja’d!!!

Oh, I didn’t realize there was a difference in conjugation between intransitive and transitive verbs. Guess I need to look that up. The “Show inflections” tip is great, I was looking for some ways to practice conjugation.

@TamanegiNoKame
I have no idea what that joke meant, guess I have an additional goal to study towards!

Anyways, ありがとうございます to the both of you!

No, it’s not the difference between intransitive and transitive, it’s the difference between ichidan and godan verbs.

始まる is godan (and happens to be intransitive), while 始める is ichidan (and happens to be transitive).
There are also godan transitive and ichidan intransitive verbs too.
Whether a verb is transitive or intransitive is unrelated to whether it’s ichidan or godan.
