N4 Grammar: Using temiru, teoku, and teshimau

This month, I’m continuing on with N4 grammar points by talking about how to use the te-form in Japanese. We are going to talk about how to talk about trying something, preparing for something, or doing something accidentally that could be embarrassing.

These can be used with the te-form in Japanese to talk about trying to do something, preparing for something, or completing something. The Japanese word shimau is often used in the expression しまった which means ‘oh shoot’ in Japanese.

Do you know how to form sentences using these points? I go over all that and more in the video below:

Since this is the first of many N4 Grammar videos to come. Be sure to subscribe to the N4 Grammar channel in order to get all of the videos as they come out.

And if you missed any of my N5 grammar videos you can find them on the JLPT N5 Grammar YouTube Channel

Do you have friends? I bet you do. How about friends that are just starting to learn Japanese? They will probably find this video helpful, so send it along and help them out.

Of course for more information about each grammar point as well as access to the JLPT Study Kit, check out the premium site.
