A few sentence correction

Postby kentaku_sama » Sun 11.23.2008 3:09 am

Here's some sentences I have for correction.

1 私は同じのそうの彼思います。  "I think the same way as him"  This one is probably wrong.

2 君の犬も高いです。  ”Your dog is tall also"

3 私たちは水曜日、5:00 に彼のプールで泳ぐ。 "Let's go swimming at his pool on wednesday at 5:00."

Are these beginner sentences? I'm not real sure of my level... ALso please explain some different uses of "同じ"

And if 3 isn't correct, explain how to say ( the day of the month or date) at (time).

Thanks for the help

Well, 1 and 3 are defintely not beginner's sentences, and I don't think it makes a lot of sense to jump to that sort of grammar...

as for sentence 2, 大きい is probably a better adjective in this context.

私は彼と同じ意見/考え方です。 意見(いけん)=opinion, 考え方(かんがえかた)=way of thinking

2 君の犬も高いです。  ”Your dog is tall also"

This sounds more like "Your dog is also expensive" as katafei said 大きい is probably better. Also until you get a better grip on Japanese you're better off not addressing anyone as 君.

3 私たちは水曜日、5:00 に彼のプールで泳ぐ。 "Let's go swimming at his pool on wednesday at 5:00."

"Let's" is communicated through the verb ending 〜ましょう. So it should be 「水曜日の5時に彼のプールで泳ぎましょう」. Also note that it's uncommon to use 彼/彼女 and much more common to use the person's name.

Thanks for the correction, but what is そう used for?

こう、そう、ああ、どう - like this, like that, like that, like what. It's the same そう as in そうです.
