Learning Godan Verbs

Postby Tazzy » Sun 02.07.2010 9:41 pm

Okay, so I've learned the conjugations for godan verbs but it was from a site that wasn't exactly thorough or correct all the time, so I just wanted to make sure I had them right.

NON-PAST : PAST
-u, -tsu, -ru : -ta
-nu, -mu, -bu: -nda
-ku: -ita
-gu: -ida
-su: -shita

LOL, I have this memorized in the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."

This is a pretty good site for any Japanese grammar questions. Here is the page for conjugating verbs in the past tense.
