APPENDIX 2: Grammar structures that have appeared more than three times on the 2kyuu test:
kara to itte, arinagara, no sei de, okagede, ni taishite, o megutte, dake atte
…tokorode, sae, ireba, uchi ni, to itte, you ni, tame ni, kara to itte, ni kanshite wa, wake ni wa ikenai, toshitara, dakara to itte, ni hanshite, no sei ka
toshite, kara ni wa, wake, …zu ni (eg. shirazu ni), nagara mo, …mo…nara,…mo…da
toshite mo, dokoro ka, nai koto ni wa, koto ni wa, dake atte, toshite mo
You should also know mono vs. koto vs. wake (and all their various forms like kotonara vs. mononara, koto vs. koto da, etc) cold.
It looks goofy, but it's serious. I've already studied some today, and my mind is in knots from all the sample sentences.
