Particles #17 - Find Everything You’re Looking for with Japanese Particles O and Ni!

Throwback Thursday
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! Whenever you decide to go somewhere new in Japan, it always becomes a hassle. Your spouse won't go anywhere in Japan unless you've printed out the correct Japanese map as well as directions for the most direct route to your destination. Even so, half the time you end up lost, because your spouse just seems to prefer to ignore the directions and travel the back roads through Japan. This time, though, your spouse vows it will be different, saying in Japanese, "We're all set to go to this new place that just opened on the other side of town. I know exactly where it is!" You reply in Japanese, "Great, dear. I printed the directions from the website anyway just in case." Your spouse says in Japanese, "Wonderful, but we won't need them. This time I'm confident about where we're headed." You've heard similar sentiments in Japanese from your spouse before, but you smile and nod confidently. Sure enough, thirty minutes later, you still haven't arrived at your Japanese destination (though the Japanese directions say you should have been there within fifteen minutes). Still, you stay mum, just waiting for the inevitable Japanese expletives to come spilling from your spouse's mouth... Learning Japanese with JapanesePod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Japanese! This Japanese Particle lesson will teach you how to use particles to give directions in Japanese. Even though this lesson will help you tell someone precisely where to go in Japanese, consider adding some extra time to your schedule just in case!
