In this lesson we will focus on actions that you do around your house. Suwaru (座る) is a verb that means To sit.

   Sit on chair please = isu ni suwatte kudasai (椅子に座ってください)

   Don't sit on the cat = neko ni suwaranaide (猫に座らないで)

   Don't sit on top of the cat please = neko no ue ni suwaranaide kudasai (猫の上に座らないでください)


   In Japanese the verb Tatsu (立つ) means to stand.

   Ms. Yamada didn't stand = yamada-san wa tatanakatta
   (山田さんは立たなかった)

   We are also standing = watashitachi mo tatteiru (私たちも立っている)

   Are you standing? = tatte imasu ka (立っていますか)



   In a previous lesson we learned that we can add a word to suru to make a verb in Japanese. The word ryouri (料理) means cuisine. If you attach it with suru, it means To cook.

   Cooking chicken = toriniku o ryouri shite imasu
   (鳥肉を料理しています)

   Cooking in the kitchen = daidokoro de ryori shiteiru
   (台所で料理している)

   Japanese cooking is delicious = nihon ryouri wa oishii
   (日本料理は美味しい)



   The word neru (寝る) means To sleep.

   Horses sleep outside = uma wa soto de nemasu (馬は外で寝ます)

   I sleep on bed = watashi wa beddo de nemasu (私はベッドで寝ます)

   Is she sleeping? = kanojo wa nete imasu ka (彼女は寝ていますか)



   The word miru (見る) means To watch.

   Children are watching TV = kodomotachi wa terebi o mite imasu
   (子どもたちはテレビを見ています)

   Dog is also watching = inu mo mite iru (犬も見ている)

   I don't watch TV at all = terebi wa zenzen mimasen
   (テレビは全然見ません)
