Using Your Passion List (Desu)
“It’s not the will to win that matters–everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.” – Paul “Bear” Bryant
Remember that list of vocab you created for your “passion list” in the previous chapter? Go ahead and whip it out, we’re going to use it to practice and then solidify the grammar point “desu.” Here’s what we’ll do.
As you go through this, you’ll only want to use the nouns in your list. Verbs are definitely off the table, and adjectives (because they’re pretty weird in Japanese) are probably off the table too.
When you’ve done this, move on to the practice where we’ll work on です (as well as some other things).
