Don’t you love it when a foreign language has easy grammar? Just add one syllable to the end of a sentence and it’s a question. No messy conjugations or word rearranging. Of course, not all Japanese grammar is this simple so enjoy it while you can.
Although to be honest I wouldn’t call any part of Japanese grammar genuinely “hard”. It’s mostly just “different”, which can make it seem harder than English related languages like Spanish or German.
猫= ねこ = cat
Curiosity Killed The Cat
Yellow: My grandpa always said “The only dumb question is the one you don’t ask”, but I don’t know how to ask questions in 日本語.
Blue: It’s easy! Just add か to the end of a sentence and it turns into a question.
Blue: For example: それは猫です means “That is a cat.”
Blue: But それは猫ですか means “Is that a cat?”
Yellow: So the か is like a spoken question mark?
Blue: That’s a good way to think of it.
Yellow: I wonder what a spoken question mark would sound like in 英語…
Yellow: Maybe something like “?”
Blue: How did you even make that sound!?
