Please see the correction below.
あまりとおくないです。 ( not really far)
あまりとおくありません。 ( not really far)
The second one is politer.

According to the lesson note:「To make the negative form polite, simple add desu after -kunai or replace nai
with arimasen」.
so I made two examples:
あまりとおくないです。 ( not really far)
あまりとおいありません。 ( not really far)
are they correct?
Thank you for the lesson :heart:

Genki is one of na-adjectives. :wink:

Hi guys and JPodcast-team,

at minute 02:36 the topic is about na-adjectives but the example there is “genki” (and at the end of the video).
Is this an exception for the “na” adjectives?

Anthony san,

“kantan” is a noun and “kantan ni” is an adverb.
“betsu” and “betsu ni” are same as above.

こんにちは。

What would be the difference between “kantan” and “kantan ni” ?
“Kantan ni” is also used to mean ‘easy’ right? How is the “ni” used there?
I think the same goes with “betsu” and “betsu ni.”

ありがとうございます!
