I am curious. On a PC, when I hover my cursor over a line where I would presumably write a translation, the cursor changes from an arrow to a text-input cursor. This would be expected, if I was going to be able to input text. But there is no ability to input text that I can find.

It should be 'watashi wa chess o suru.' and it means "I play chess."

'Watashi wa chess ga dekimasu.' means "I can play chess."

Please let us know if you have any questions :)

Is saying 'watashi wa chess ga suru.' fine instead of 'watashi wa chess ga dekimasu.' What's the difference?

Hello Sanddeep.


Let me try to answer your questions.


1.

"Ga" is used in combination with the verbs "to be/ to exist": imasu and arimasu.

That's why you have to ask "petto ga imasu ka".


2.

The particle is "o" rather than "ga", because "hanasu" is not a verb of ability. It just means that you speak or say something, not that you can speak or say it.

So in the sentence "mainichi eigo o hanashimasu", the particle "o" is korrekt.

It just means "I speak English every day."

If you said, "I can speak English every day", the article "ga" might become appropriate.


Hope that helped a bit. ;)

Hi Again,


9. Do you have any pets?

ใƒšใƒƒใƒˆใŒ ใ„ใพใ™ใ‹ใ€‚

Why is ga used here? I dont think having pets is ability.. I thought wa should be used instead of ga.

Hello, is there a way for free lifetime account users to access worksheets and, if so, what steps have you got to follow?
