Fill In The Blanks

Blue: Learning vocabulary isn’t much good if you don’t learn any grammer rules to go with it.

Yellow: Awww… I was hoping we could avoid grammer for a little bit longer.

Blue: The most important grammer pattern is how to say “A is B”.

Yellow: I actually know that one!

Yellow: AはB です “.

Blue: But watch out!

Blue:The は is pronounced more like “wa” than the usual “ha” and the です is pronounced more like “des” than “desu”.

Yellow: Hey, isn’t 日本語supposed to be a phonetic language?!

Blue: It’s mostly phonetic. Honest!

Yellow: All right… but keep springing surprises on me and I’m switching to Esperanto.
