Let’s study vocabulary together through this clip !


After watching the explanation clip about grammar , read all the examples !



(Give something to someone)

When you use a verb that has a meaning of giving, teaching other person stuff or information.There must be a 「に」behind that receiving person.

❌ 山本(やまもと)さんは 私(わたし)に プレゼントを あげます。
Yamamoto gives me a present
(Wrong sentence)

When you use 「あげます」( give ) ,you can not put 「私(わたし)」before the particle「に」.
( In other words, you can not say : ‘someone gives me something’ with 「あげます」 in Japanese )

With the wrong sentence above, you can replace「あげます」with 「くれます」and the sentence will be come a correct sentence.

◯ 山本(やまもと)さんは 私(わたし)に プレゼントを くれます。
Yamamoto gives me a present.

1.私(わたし)は 山本(やまもと)さんに プレゼントを あげます。
