● What is the difference between "Kure" and other expressions?
There are many languages that have verbs that have the same meaning as "give" and "get." However, when I asked my student, there are almost no verbs that have the same meaning as "guru" in other languages.
"A gave B an apple."
"Mr. B got apples from Mr. A."
"Give up" and "Get" appear in the first half of the Japanese language. Because it's a verb that's easy to remember.
However, at Japanese language schools in Japan, I often study only a little later, just after "giving me".
Look at these two sentences.
1. Mr. A gave me an apple.
2. Mr. A gave me an apple.
Which do you think is correct?
The answer is 1. "Give" can be used only when the person who received it is me (I).
The person I usually get is myself, so Japanese people often skip "me" and use it this way.
3, Mr. A gave me an apple.
In the latter half of the beginner's class of Japanese, "-teageru", "-te-teru" and "-te-teru" also appear.
Even when it takes shape in the front, "te-teru" is a word to use when I (I) want someone to do something and express my gratitude.
