About me

I'm a native Japanese speaker, studying English and French. Although I don't have enough time to study foreign languages, I'll write an entry every day and correct my friends' entry. If you want me to correct your Japanese, please write the same thing in English or French. I'll do my best to help you improve your Japanese.

I'm writing some entries for Japanese learners. Please read them!

《My correction style》-----------------
(1) Color Usage
I'll cross out and use gray to indicate what is unnecessary.
I'll use red when only some changes are necessary.
I'll use blue to show my suggestions on making it more natural Japanese.

(2) Targets for correction
I'll correct certain sentences which haven't been revised yet.
Sometimes I'll also correct already rectified sentences, in order to give any suggestions I might have.

(3) Grammar
I'll try to give you explanations about Japanese grammar; such as 'setsuzoku' (接続 せつぞく) word connection rules.
Please note that all verbs, adjectives and adjective verbs in Japanese have six different forms.
For example:
①未然形 みぜんけい  imperfect(ive) form
②連用形 れんようけい continuative(conjunctive) form
③終止形 しゅうしけい predicative form
④連体形 れんたいけい attributive form
⑤仮定形 かていけい  hypothetical form
⑥命令形 めいれいけい imperative form
