Sentence with に and で particles

Post by Sivak » Thu 05.07.2009 11:34 pm

Hey all. I have been using Genki for a few days now and like it. I just want to see if my thought process is right.

I'm studying how verbs work and was looking at the particles でand に. "de" for where and "ni" for when. I'm wondering about combining them into a sample sentence and hoping my logic is right.

My guess: 僕は月曜日に家でピザを食べます。
What I want it to say: I will eat pizza at home on Monday.

It's a silly example, I know, but did I guess right?

ありがとうございます。 8)

Yep! Although I think it's customary to say "thanks in advance" using よろしくお願いします rather than ありがとうございます. ^^; (I think you can omit the よろしく, though.)

To the OP; even though my knowledge is somewhat limited, I can't see a problem at all there.
And to furrykef, are you suggesting to use お願いします to mean 'thanks in advance'? I thought it was purely intended as a way of humbly requesting something. Could you confirm this for me? :mrgreen:

Aren't you humbly requesting something when you ask someone to answer your language question?
