As I’ve seen suggested here and there on the forum, I’m going through Cure Dolly’s Japanese from Scratch series to help learn grammar. It’s not the only source I’m using, but it’s seems to be a helpful one. I searched, but couldn’t find a thread focused on discussing her videos and working through them together. So, I’m making one! I hope this isn’t a duplicate and that I’m starting it in the right category? I really wasn’t sure if it should go in grammar or not.
I didn’t have a hard time with the first and second lessons, so I’m starting the discussion at the third video. If anyone would like to discuss the earlier lessons, or post their sentences from any of them, here’s a place!
Lesson 3 Sentences PLEASE HELP
This lesson deals with the は and に particles. I had to watch it a couple times before I felt ready to use what I’d learned, so I’d like some feedback on my sentences.
This one I’m pretty confident about.
English: The cat climbs the tree to the roof.
This one I’m less confident about, but still feel kind of good about it.
English: The tree that the cat climbs to the roof.
This one…please help. Am I doing this right?
(Intended) English: There is a tree. My cat climbs it(the tree) to the roof.
The intended English was definitely lost on DeepL, which translates it as There’s a tree there. My cat is on the roof. Is this just a case of the machine not being able to read context, or am I constructing my sentence wrong?
I’ll probably, hopefully make a new post daily as I work through videos and make practice sentences with what I’ve learned.
