Hello Yan,


Thank you for posting.

When you don’t find a word at the vocabulary section what you’re interested in having in your Flashcard deck, please use our dictionary:

https://www.japanesepod101.com/japanese-dictionary/

You can add them from there.


Let us know if you have any further questions.


Sincerely,

Lena

> ポール san, Yan-san,

こんにちは。:smile:

Thank you for pointing out about 隅(すみ). I'll speak to my team about it. :sunglasses::thumbsup:

ポールさん、

置く is a verb, like you understood correctly, but the word おく(奥) in 部屋のおく means 'at the end of' in this case

and this is a noun. Please note that the particle の (of) links nouns, not verbs. This can be a tip to recognise

the meaning and a word. :wink:

I have went through every Absolute Beginner videos and audios but the word "すみ" was never in the vocabulary list, hence this was my first time seeing this word. It isn't in the vocab list of this video either. Hope you can add it in so I can practice from my flashcards. Thanks!

この授業がもう少し難しいですね!:sweat_smile:

隅という言葉を忘れてしまって、それがノートにはないのですね。


After studying in the Beginner section and learning a lot of grammar and vocabulary elsewhere, I have found most of these Absolute Beginner lessons quite easy. But with this one it was impossible to be sure of the answer without understanding すみ.

I was also confused by 部屋のおく. You define 置く as "to put" and use it as such but then use it here to mean something different. But I think I understand now that it can also mean "to separate". So he was saying that the bed should be away from the door, or "at the other end of the room" as the translation puts it. (...right?)


レッスンをありがとうございます!

Rhes san,

Konnichiwa.:smile:

Thank you for your positive feedback.

I am wondering if you just started learning Japanese.

If so, it might hard for you to get meanings from listening only.

If you want to improve listening skills, you should memorize vocabularies and grammar points.

Then you can guess meanings and listen at the same time.

I'm so loving this course. I'm having difficulties when it comes to listening. Are there other tools I could use?
