Hiepさん、こんにちは。

Thank you for your comment!

I'm really sorry for the late reply...


That's a very good question!!


「男の子が、にっきを読んでいます。」

First of all, the particle「が」is used when the speaker broaches the topic for the first time.

And the most important information comes before「が」.


「男の子は、何をさいしょにしましたか。」

The information that the speaker wants to convey is after the particle「は」.

So he/she wants to tell the most「何をさいしょにしましたか」.


Hope this helps you.


Keep up the good work with us!


Sincerely,

Miho

Claudineさん こんにちは。


コメントありがとうございます。

I guess you took Review Questions on Quizzes, and sorry for the confusion.

It's the quiz for checking whether you can find wrong pairs or not.

So even if the quiz says something like "行く → just after," it doesn't mean that the translation of 行く is "just after."

In this case, you can get "correct" if you select False.


Hope this helps,

Motoko

こんにちは先生


I am surprise by the translation you give to 行く in the quiz. Could you tell me if it is not a mistake?
