JLPT N2 Grammar lesson 3. Hi everyone! In this article, LearnJapanesedaily will introduce to you the JLPT N2 Grammar. Each lesson will consist of about 5 structures for you to learn step by step and have more time to practise.

Structure 11 :

N 1はまだしもN2/ならまだしも


If that’s N1 then it’s possible, if it’s N2, it’s obviously impossible. N1 is at an easier level than N2

For example:

Watashi no eigoryoku de wa, ryokou wa madashimo, ryuugaku nante muri desu.
My English skills may help me survive when travelling but it’s impossible to go study abroad.

10-pun ya 20-pun nara madashimo, 1-jikan mo matemasen.
It’s ok for me to wait for 10 – 20 minutes but not an hour.

Structure 12 :

Aくて/ A ( minus な)で/Nで/ Vたくて+たまらない。


.~ Can’t bear it/ ~ (happy) incalculably / really, extremely ~
(tamaru means to contain, tamaranai mean unable to restrain, contain → unbearable)

For example:

Kodomo no koto ga shinpai de tamaranai.
I’m so worried about my kids.

Kazoku ni aitakute tamaranai.
I really want to see my family.

Structure 13 :

Aくて/ A ( minus な)で/Nで/ Vて + 仕方がない/しょうがない.


Don’t know what to do/ extreme ~ There is no other way.
Usually used when speaking, in close relationships.

For example:

Kyou wa nani mo suru koto ga nakute, hima de shikataganai.
Today I have so much free time, I don’t know what to do.

Sonna houhou de wa, jikan ga kakatte shouganai.
This method is obviously time-consuming.

Shouganai ko desu ne, hitori toire ikenaino.
I don’t know what to do with this child, he can’t even go to the toilet alone.

Structure 14 :

Aくて/ A ( minus な)で/ Nで + かなわない。


Can’t stand something because ~

For example:

Tonari no kouji ga urusakute kanawanai.
I can’t stand the noise from the nearby construction site.

My house is far from the station, I can’t stand the inconvenience.

Structure 15 :

For example:

Shin’yuu no kekkonshiki ni shusseki dekinai no ga, zannen de naranai.
