What is the hiragana character that fills in the blank in the following sentence? 日本語( )勉強します。 I study Japanese Language. The correct answer is “を"! Was it easy or difficult?

Japanese language has many particles. There are “は ha", “が ga", “も mo", “に ni", and so on.

Today, I would like to explain about “を o" among them. The particle "を" has three main usages ①Object ②Starting point ③movement

First, the most common situation in which it is used is to describe the object of ①. “を” marks the direct object in a sentence. The direct object is the noun which receives the action of the verb. ごはん“を” たべます。 I eat a meal. えいが“を” みます。 I watch a movie.

And, “を” indicating the starting point is used with verbs such as “でます leave" or “おります get off”. うち“を” でます。 I leave my house. でんしゃ“を” おります。 I get off the train.

Lastly, when used in reference to movement, it primarily represents a point of passage or a route. こうえん“を” さんぽします。 I take a walk in the park. はし“を” わたります。 I cross the bridge.

There are so many different uses of "を" alone. However, Japanese particles are very organized and have specific situations and sentences in which they are used I think particle is one of the most difficult things to learn in Japanese, but I hope this post helps everyone!
