Not Sure Of Some Grammar...

Postby Busby » Sun 09.01.2013 1:46 pm

Hi All ! I am not sure of some grammar that I used in my sentences , what do you think of it?

きょうわたしは大きな花火を見ました

Here i wanted to say that today that today I saw big fireworks.

私は木曜日に中田と火山に行ってきました

here i wanted to say Today that I went to the volcano with Mr Yamada.

明日なつ休みです

Here i wanted to say that tomorrow , summer holidays begin.


What do you think of the grammar of those sentences? Thank you very much!

Looks fine except you should put a comma after きょう.

私は木曜日に中田と火山に行ってきました

here i wanted to say Today that I went to the volcano with Mr Yamada.


You said "on Thursday" rather than "today", and it's ambiguous whether you went with Uchida (no mention of Mr. Yamada) to the volcano, or went to Uchida and the volcano. To make it unambiguous, use と一緒に instead of simple と.

明日なつ休みです

Here i wanted to say that tomorrow , summer holidays begin.


You're just saying tomorrow is summer holiday, nothing about it beginning tomorrow. This would be better: 明日、夏休みは始まります。
