Japanese “ru” verb practise

I’ve been doing my best to put aside some Japanese study time from time to time, because as I said in my post about wanting to conquer the Japanese Language I have been at the same level for over a year now and now that I’ve started looking over some stuff I am now convinced that I have regressed further than I thought. Continuing on from my post about Japanese “u” verbs I present a post about “ru” verbs giving examples and a few basic sentences.

If you are unable to see some of the characters typed below please install East Asian language support on your PC. If you see them but don’t understand what they mean and you want to know, consult the Hiragana Charts.

The verbs will be written in example sentences in conversational or “masu” form: Positive present tense, past present tense, positive past tense and negative past tense. Please note that Japanese does not have future tense.

たべる – to eat
ねる – to sleep
かける – to call

いま わたしは あさごはん を たべます。
I am having breakfast now.

きのう わたしは すし を たべました。
Yesterday I ate sushi.

あした あなたは あさごはん を たべません。
Tomorrow I will not eat breakfast.

きのう とふ を たべませんでした。
Yesterday I did not eat tofu.
