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 study abroad.

20-pu nara madashimo, densha ga ichi-jikan mo okureta.
It would be alright if it were just 20 minutes, but the train was delayed by an hour. 

Okane dake nara madashimo, mibun shoumeisho made nusumarete shimatta.
It would be alright if it were just my own money, but my identification papers were also stolen.

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.

Kuruma wo kaitakute tamaranai. 
I really want to buy a car.

Kanojo ni aete ureshikute tamaranai.
I’m so glad that I can see her.

Structure 13 :

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

For example:

Mainichi atsukute shouganai.

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

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 :

For example:
