Postby tydin » Sat 03.27.2010 9:15 pm

こんにちは みんな! I have been going over family vocabulary and I wanted to test my ability, so here we go!

わたしのいえかぞく (My family)
5にんえかぞくです.(There are 5 people in my family.)
母は45さいです. (My 45 year old mother.)
父は57さいです. (My 57 year old father.)
姐は29さいです. (My 29 year old older sister.)
弟は5さいです. (My 5 year old younger brother.)
私は15さいです. (And me, I am 15.)

Are these correct? If not could you please give constructive criticism.
ありがと!

わたしのいえかぞく (My family)

わたしのかぞく。 いえ means house and is unnecessary here.

5にんかぞくです.(There are 5 people in my family.)

As above.

母は45さいです. (My 45 year old mother.)
父は57さいです. (My 57 year old father.)

OK

は29さいです. (My 29 year old older sister.)

姉 is the correct kanji

弟は5さいです. (My 5 year old younger brother.)
私は15さいです. (And me, I am 15.)

OK

Are these correct? If not could you please give constructive criticism.
ありがと!

ありがとう

Good work! Keep it up!

One important point on accuracy:

"母は45さいです." Does not mean "My 45 year old mother." It means "My mother is 45 years old" and is a complete sentence in both English and Japanese, whereas "My 45-year-old mother" is only a noun phrase in both Japanese and English.

This same holds true for all those sentences.

そして means 'and', which would make it flow better if you were using it in a paragraph.

I think the others have corrected most mistakes, so I'll see if I can help.

兄弟 (きょうだい) means brother.
兄  (あに) means older brother (おとうと meaning younger brother)

姉妹 (しまい) means sister.
姉  (あね) means older sister. (いもうと meaning younger sister.)
