Session note ① ～に対して、～にとって（N3 level）
In this post, I take note for my session to one student studying Japanese language so that the student can review what he studied with me easily. Also, I would like to share this with other students studying N3 level.
Today’s session note is how to use “～に対して”、”～にとって” with my natural Japanese voices.
(A bit embarrassing..)
Showing object of some actions. Equivalent to “to” or “toward” in English.
Ａ．先生に対して、質問をする。（Sensei ni taishite、shitsumon wo suru）
I ask question to the teacher.
⇒ Sensei is object of asking question.
Ｂ．母は私に対して、やさしい。 (Haha ha watashi ni taishite、yasashii)
My mother is kind to me.
⇒ Watashi is object of being kind.
Showing criteria or standard to judge and evaluate something
Ａ．私にとって、英語は難しい。(Watashi ni totte、eigo ha muzukashii)
English is difficult for me.
⇒Standard to judge is “me”. I think English is difficult, but others may think it’s easy…
Ｂ．学生にとって、この問題は難しい。 (Gakusei ni totte、kono mondai ha muzukashii)
It is difficult for students to solve the question.
⇒Standard to judge is “students”. Students think it’s difficult, but teacher may think it’s not difficult.
To master language, it’s the best way to make sentence and use it!
Let’s practice by sending messages in Japanese to me, asking more questions about this post to me!
