Jap. Lesson 5: Wa and Desu by koumori-no-hime Jap. Lesson 5: Wa and Desu by koumori-no-hime
The next Japanese lesson. Now that we've learned how to write the characters, it's time to start forming real sentences. Along with discribing things, the desu sentence structure is often used to answer questions. Enjoy! The textbook used for reference and lesson ideas is Genki: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese 1. -Koumori

Please comment/critique, but do NOT use as a base/vector.

Thanks. That's what I thought, but it's really nice that I guessed the meanings right.

When we get to our Korean lessons, the particles are the best part. *sarcasm* Particles in Japanese and Korean generally fail at life and I'm still getting the hang of them (in second semester korean).

The difference between は and が is super confusing, and can essentially mean the same thing. One puts more emphasis on what comes before and one puts more emphasis on what comes after. And if I remember correctly, は emphasizes the speaker or the person doing something or being something whereas が places emphasis on the thing or action. So you can say 私は先生です。私が先生です。The first one is like, /I/ am a teacher but the second states that you are a teacher and not something else. I might be lying and it might be the other way around. *shrug* Shows how much I remember.

Yeah, I was going to try and take it slow and introduce が later, probably with があります and がすきです and have the distinction come up later. I still can't keep it straight (in second semester Japanese) -Koumori
