Hello guys im having a rough time with these two particles, im a bit slow as you see. But my problem is that i don't really know excatly how to use them in a sentence. And one example i don't get is this "だいがくのきょうしです" is this suppose to mean Teacher's university or A teacher at University.?.

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

The の particle can be used for a number of things, such as a sign of possession.

Example: わたしのほん - "Me - Possession Particle - Book

Means "My book".

 

Another use for the  の particle, is for the English word "of".

Example: にほんごのほん - Japanese - of - book

Means: Book of Japanese or Japanese book

 

Another use is to tell location.


The use of the を particle marks the direct object in the sentence, followed by the action.

Example: ほんをよみます - Book - object particle - Read

Means: Read a book

 

So to answer your question. It is a teacher of the university.

Sorry there is no option to edit the post. I wanted to change my answer to your question and say that it can be: teacher of university or teacher's University.

Hi, just to answer the translation question at the end:

daigaku no kyoushi (大学の教師 - best to learn the kanji for all of them, they're quite useful)

would be the teachers (kyoushi - remember Japanese nouns aren't marked for singular or plural) of the (no) university (daigaku).
