Could someone correct my sentences please?

Postby TunS » Mon 07.14.2008 2:36 pm

I'm just learning about the particle 'ga' and I just wanted to practice a few sentences. Please scrutinize as much as you like, as long as its constructive! Well here they are... they sound a bit strange because I wanted to use some new vocab too :?

1.)Kyou basu ni ryoushi ga imashita- There was a fisherman on the bus today

2.)Ashita kodomotachi wa o-kane ga arimasen deshita- The children didn't have money yesterday.

3.)Kanojo wa kuruma ga unten shimasen- She can drive the car.

4.)Nihon no tabemono ga taberarerimasu- I can eat Japanese food.

5.)Watashi wa supeingo ga dekimasu- I can speak spanish.

6.)Asoko kara anata ga mimasen deshita- I couldn't see you from over there.

7.)Akai isu ga hoshi desu- I wand a red chair

8.)Koko kara eiga ga mitai desu- I want to watch the film from here.

9.)Sakana no aji ga suki desu- I like the taste of fish.

10.)watashi ga asoko ni unten shimashita toki, Poru wa mou tabemashita. - When I drove there, Paul had already eaten.

11.)Ashita dare ga kimasu ka. - Who is coming tommorrow?

Thanks for the help in advance, I know its alot AND it's in romaji :roll:
Well... if you got time to spare... go on then.

"Ashita" is tomorrow. You want to use "kinou" instead.

3.)Kanojo wa kuruma ga unten shimasen- She can drive the car.

unten dekimasu*, "unten shimasen" is "doesn't drive"

4.)Nihon no tabemono ga taberarerimasu- I can eat Japanese food.

taberaremasu

5.)Watashi wa supeingo ga dekimasu- I can speak spanish.

6.)Asoko kara anata ga mimasen deshita- I couldn't see you from over there.

miemasen deshita

7.)Akai isu ga hoshi desu- I wand a red chair

hoshii

8.)Koko kara eiga ga mitai desu- I want to watch the film from here.

9.)Sakana no aji ga suki desu- I like the taste of fish.

10.)watashi ga asoko ni unten shimashita toki, Poru wa mou tabemashita. - When I drove there, Paul had already eaten.

11.)Ashita dare ga kimasu ka. - Who is coming tommorrow?

With the verb forms you used for 3 and 6, the object should have been marked with "wo" instead of "ga" (the forms I corrected them to take their object marked by "ga".) Other than that, I don't see any blatant grammar gaffes.
