It Looks Good!

We already know how to "retell" what we heard from somebody else by using the expression "~そうです." We're learning another expression "~そうです" in this lesson. They look the same? Yes they do, but they're totally different!

Lesson Objectives

  • Tell the difference and compare the new ~そうです with the other ~そうです to report or re-tell what you heard from somebody else. 
  • Learn how to form and use the new ~そうです with adjectives, nouns and potential form of verbs.
  • Learn how to make negative comments using ~そうです with adjectives and nouns.
