JLPT N2 Grammar lesson 4. 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 16 :

Aくない/ A ( minus な) じゃない/ Vない/ Vられない + ことはない


It’s not that…
Usually used to negate the former idea.

For example:

Osake wo nomenai koto wa nai ga, nomitakunai.
It’s not that I can’t drink alcohol, I just don’t want to.

Toshi wo tottemo, supootsu ga dekinai koto wa nai.
It’s not that we can’t play sports when we get older.

Structure 17 :

Aくない/ A ( minus な) じゃない/ Vない/ Vられない + こともない


It’s not that…
This is a double negative.

For example:

Kare no itta koto wa shinjirarenai koto mo nai.
Believing what he said is not that impossible.

Watashi wa anata to tsukiaitakunai koto mo nai.
It’s not that I don’t want to go out with you.

Structure 18 :



It’s impossible to not do V, annoyed if not doing V.

For example:

Kono eiga wo mite, nakanai de wa irarenai.
I can’t help crying when seeing this movie.

Watashi wa kare ga itta koto wo utagawanai de wa irarenai.
It’s impossible for me to not doubt what he said.

Structure 19 :

V  ( minus ない) →Vずにはいられない


Can’t stop / impossible to not. Similar to structure 18 but rarely used when speaking.

For example:

Kono shousetsu wo yomazu ni wa irarenai.
I can’t help reading this novel.

Kare no koto wo omowazu ni wa irarenai.
I can’t stop thinking of him.

Structure 20 :

Vない → Vねば+ ならない
しない → せねば+ ならない


Have to do something

For example:

Yakusoku wo mamoraneba naranai.
We must keep our promise.

Watashi wa komatte iru hito wo tasukerareneba naranai.
