Aidanさん、
こんにちは。
Unfortunately the function of‘あなた’is not the same as the function of ‘you.’
Japanese native speakers hardly use ‘anata.’
In this case, you can say ’先生は大丈夫ですか?’ :wink:

1.私はコンピューターを使わないが、インターネットの為に携帯電話を使っています is better.
2.使いませんが is more polite.

皆さん、こんにちは!

I have two questions:

1. 「私はコンピューターを使わないが、オンラインになる為に携帯電話を使っています。」
^ Is the sentence grammatically correct to say that ‘I do not use a computer, but I use a mobile phone to go online’?

2. And can we say 「コンピューターを使わないです。」 to make the sentence more polite?

Thanks :grin:

日本語のレッスンの時間です。 :wink:

Konnichiwa Yuki sensei ,
and thank you very much.
oh , yes it would sound much better if it has conjunctions like because , in order , until … etc.
but you know as an absolute beginner student I can’t make such perfect sentences yet.
so thank you for making it for me, this helps me to learn faster and better :heart: :thumbsup:

Aha, I sort of get it.
and to make sure .. if I want to refer to lessons like these in japanese pod website.
I would say :
日本語のレッスンタイムです
ですよね?

Maymoona san,

konnichiwa. :smile:
I don’t use Galaxy cell phone. means ギャラクシーをつかわない
I don’t know if “する” would mean the same meaning as in English? → it depends.
my head is hurting, I can’t come to the party! → don’t you need a conjunction for example because?
Isn’t it “because my head is hurting, I can’t come to the party!’?
If so the Japanese sentence is あたまがいたいからパーティーにいかない.
Regarding じゅぎょう and レッスン,
じゅぎょう is usually used for school class.
レッスン is for small class or lesson like piano lesson, English conversation lesson and so on.

Galaxyをしない -> I don’t use Galaxy cell phone.
I don’t know if “する” would mean the same meaning as in English?

頭がいたい、パーティにこない -> my head is hurting, I can’t come to the party!

By the way, what’s the difference between じゅぎょう and レッスン?

avatar Natsuko

Causewaypond-san,
we’re very sorry. I’ll talk to the relevant department, and find out & fix the problem as soon as possible. Thank you for patience, in advance.
