JLPT N5 (RIVER) Analysis of Japanese sentences (Kanji + grammar + writing)


hi guys so welcome to my video number
two for the kanji mnemonics and just as a reminder last week we worked on the
mountain kanji this week we’re going to be doing the river kanji which is
this one right here so this one is gonna be number two and the kanji goes as
follows this kanji here has a total of three strokes as you can see and then
the way you write them you start left to right and then up and down just like
that so if you take a look at the river the river kinda has those same three
lines so when they created the kanji they kind of looked at the shape of the
river and that’s how they ended up coming with this kanji like this and you
know for the jlpt N5 level they mainly use the kun reading so
that’s going to be the one that we’re going to be learning today and for that
I have sentence so the first sentence goes as follows ARE means that WA is you “in regards to” “that”
KIREINA comes from the adjective KIREI which even though it ends in “I” it is
actually a “na” adjective and it means pretty so “na adjective” now here is the kanji you are learning today KAWA. DESU which is my verb to be and
NE which is like “right?” right so the the final meaning would be “that river is
pretty right” so that’s gonna be my first sentence for the second example that I
have is this one right here so if you guys recall my previous video
this kanji is the kanji for mountain and it’s read as Yama… Yama and then now here once again we have Kawa yamakawa which is actually a person’s name
Yamakawa you can find it in the exam it’s quite often to see this name in the exam
so that’s why I brought it up I don’t want you guys to be confused and asking
what it means it’s actually just a person’s name yamakawa so one thing that I want you guys to watch out for these two kanji can be pretty similar but as
you can see they’re completely different this one has a total of 6 strokes and my
River kanji only has 3 strokes total this one right here means Providence and
the reason why I bring it up it’s because in the exam the jlpt exam they
tend to kind of give choices for kanji and they have very similar kanji so just
watch out for kanji that are that are similar and you don’t make the mistake
of picking the wrong one and that’s it guys if you liked this video don’t
forget to give a thumbs up also how about if you write a sentence using this
kanji down in the comment thank you guys for watching and see you next time
