JLPT N3 Grammar lesson 8. Hi everyone! In this article, LearnJapanesedaily will introduce you to the JLPT N3 Grammar.

Let’s take a look at the next 5 structures.

Structure 36 :



Even though saying ~/ that but ~
Used to add a change or a limitation to the expected thing that is mentioned in the former clause of a sentence, assuming in reality, the mentioned thing isn’t that highly expected.

For example:

Shuumatsu wa ryokou shimashita. Ryokou to ittemo, chikaku no onsen ni itta dake desuga.
Last weekend, I went travelling. Saying travelling but It’s just the hot stream next to my house.

Konshuu wa isogashii to ittemo, senshuu hodo janai.
It’s been a busy week, but still not as busy as last week.

Structure 37 :



Just do V
Used when an older person talk a younger one or a superior to a subordinate. Also used when close friends talk to each other.
Equal to Vなさい

For example:

Wakaranakattara, sensei ni kiite goran.
If you don’t get it then go ask the teacher.

Mouichido yatte goran nasai.
Let’s try again.

Structure 38 :



Just do V/ Don’t do V
An indirect order. Different from an indirect speech as we don’t have to convert the pronoun.

Tell Tanaka to go to my office.

Tsuma ni ie ni wa tabako o suwanai youni iwaremasu.
I’m banned from smoking in my home by my wife.

Structure 39 :

Sensei ni motto benkyou shiro to iwareta.
I have been told by my teacher to study harder.

Chichi ni, motto hayaku kaere to chuui sareta.
