J132 L9 Review Materials

 Pre-Test will emphasize the から/けど patterns and the そう/なさそうstructures. So, you will see sentences in Japaense with two clauses separated by a slash and you figure out whether it should be a から or けど sentence. e.g.

1、安い/買います = 安いから、買います = It's cheap so I will buy it.


2、来週、いそがしい/行きます = 来週 いそがしいけど、行きます= I am busy nextweek but I will go (anyway).


You will also see som Adj., な-Adj. and Verbs to put into the そう form. And a few Kanji just for kicks!

I. Short oral -- lots of Interrogative + か questions (10)

II. Short written NEGATIVE responses to Interrogative + か questions (5)

III. Combine clauses into 1 sentence using either から/けど (10)

IV. Use the そう or なさそう form --some cues will be in Japanese, some in English, eg, 好きor "sweet"

V. English sentences into Japanese (15)

VI. Kanji--6 each of Recognition and Production
