Using 普通

Postby Mets » Thu 06.27.2013 5:01 pm

If I wanted to say "Schools usually have infirmaries.", which would be better (if either):
"普通の学校には、保健室が有ります。" or
"普通は、学校で保健室が有ります。" ?

don't forget adverbs :dance:

You made it as a topic and an adjective, yet the english sentence you made was an adverb :think:

I just wrote the sentences I as thought they would sound most natural in either language.
...so, would this be correct: "普通で、学校に保健室が有ります。" ?
Using 普通 as an adverb instead of adj-no.

の- and な-adjectives generally become adverbs by using 「に」.

「普通に自転車で学校へ行きます」-> 'I usually go to school by bicycle.'

"Schools usually have infirmaries."

"普通、学校に保健室が有ります。"
"普通は、学校 保健室が有ります。"
Not "で"
"普通は、学校 "に" 保健室が有ります。"
more better.

"普通の学校には、保健室が有ります。"
This is not bad, but Correctly,if this translated to English,
" Usual schools have infirmaries."

I recommend,
"学校には普通、保健室があります。"
