JLPT N3 Grammar lesson 9. 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 41 :



Even though ~
To show an inversion in conditional sentences. Even if X happens, it still doesn’t affect the result of Y.

For example:

Shirabetemo wakaranakatta node, sensei ni kiita.
Even if I research, I still won’t get it so I ask the teacher.

Hitsuyou na node, takakutemo kaimasu.
Because it’s necessary, even though it’s expensive, I still buy it anyways.

Sumimasen, kuro wa urikiremashita.
Sorry, the black ones are all sold out.
Kuro janakutemo kamaimasen yo.
It’s ok, it doesn’t have to be black.

Structure 42 :



No matter what/ Even though ~ still ~

For example:

Gitaa o narai hajimeta ga, donna ni renshuu shitemo zenzen umaku naranai.
I have started to learn guitar but no matter how much I practise, I still can’t get any better.

Watashi wa ikura osake o nondemo kaoiro ga kawaranai.
No matter how much alcohol I consume, it still won’t affect my appearance.

Structure 43:



Not doing V but doing ~/ In stead of V ~
Used in idiomatic writing, equal to Vないで

For example:

Jisho o tsukawazu ni kaita node, jishin ga arimasen.
I wrote this without using the dictionary, so I’m not confident.

Yuube, ha o migakazu ni nete shimatta.
Last night I went to bed without brushing my teeth.

Structure 44 :



On the behalf of N/ in the name of N/ as N.
Used after the noun to show the right, position, class or title…

For example:

Kare wa gaikokujin da ga, nihondaihyou to shite shiai ni deru.
He is a foreigner but takes part in the contest as a representative from Japan.

Kanojo wa josei to shitemo joyuu to shitemo saikou da ga, tsuma to shite wa doudarou.
She, as a girl or an actress is also amazing, wonder how she would be as a wife.

Structure 45 :



~ Despite/ though ~
Followed by a completely contradictory outcome that people have already predicted, if based on that.

For example:

Gaikokujin ni shite wa nihongo ga jouzu da.
Despite being a foreigner, (his/her) Japanese is really good.

Hajimeni shite wa, yoku dekimashita.
Despite being the first time, it was actually good.

Aratta no? Sore ni shite wa kirei janai ne.
It’s already washed? Still not so clean, though.
