Session note ① ~に対して、~にとって(N3 level)with native Japanese voice

Session note ① ~にたいして、~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 “~にたいして”、”~にとって” with my natural Japanese voices.

(A bit embarrassing..)

 ~ni taishite



Showing object of some actions. Equivalent to “to” or “toward” in English.



A.先生せんせいたいして、質問しつもんをする。(Sensei ni taishite、shitsumon wo suru)

  I ask question to the teacher.

  ⇒ Sensei is object of asking question.


B.ははわたしたいして、やさしい。 (Haha ha watashi ni taishite、yasashii)

  My mother is kind to me.

  ⇒ Watashi is object of being kind.



 ~ni totte



Showing criteria or standard to judge and evaluate something



A.わたしにとって、英語えいごむずかしい。(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.学生がくせいにとって、この問題もんだいむずかしい。 (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.


Let’s Practice

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!
