Hello everyone!! While I was doing my Japanese homework I bumped into this sentence 日本を学んで...... ( instead of the points there would be something that I have to add). The problem is: what does 学んで means? I mean what's the verb? I tried to find it on Tangorin but I couldn't find it... Thank you in advance
Solved!! The verb is 学ぶ、まなぶ!! Anyway the whole sentence says:
日本を学んでいる中国人が多い です( this Is what I added)。教料書 (textbook) を中国へ... And here I've to add something.
売っているwould be ok? In the sense that due to the fact that many Chinese people study Japanese, Japanese textbooks are sold in China... It would have any sense? Thank you in advance
日本を学ぶ sounds strange. At least 日本のことを or 日本語を学ぶ or something like that would be better.
教科書を送る would do. This 教科書 has to be those second hand ones students used in their school days.
If you can't find something in Tangorin, I suggest you might want to try the web site www.alc.co.jp a try before you give up. It doesn't have many of the features that Tangorin has and is more for going from Japanese into English for Japanese users but it may have what you are looking for, as is the case with 学んでいる. You can also try www.linguee.com. There too you will find 学んでいる. I think Tangorin is a great site but these other sites do sometimes have terms not defined in Tangorin. On the other hand, neither site can help you if you don't know how to input the term - as you can with Tangorin. Also, they don't have features such as the Name tab (one I use quite often).
Thank you very much to both!! And I'll check the sites you suggested me!
