JLPT N4 Grammar -te Form (Basic Japanese)

Free Japanese Quizzes Every Day—Learn Japanese Online for Free!

Here's a free beginner Japanese quiz from the expert teachers at Nihongo-Pro. New quizzes are available every day at several skill levels. Take the Nihongo-Pro quiz challenge every day, from your PC, Mac, smartphone, iPad, iPod, or tablet, and learn Japanese online for free!

The JLPT N4 is the second level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. One of the grammar forms you'll need to master is the -te form of Japanese verbs. Even if you don't plan to take the JLPT, the -te form is essential for any student of Japanese.

As you learn Japanese, keep practicing the -te form, so you can take any Japanese verb and give its -te form with any hesitation. By spending just a few minutes every day learning Japanese, your language skill will improve quickly. Stick with it, and you will be amazed at how much Japanese you learn!

In this free Nihongo quiz, be careful about jidōshi (intransitive verbs) and tadōshi (transitive verbs). An intransitive verb has no object‐for example, "The door opened". A transitive verb always has an object—for example, "I opened the door".

As these examples show, in English, the intransitive and transitive verbs are often the same, but not so in Japanese! Most of the time, the Japanese intransitive and transitive verbs will be different words. (We won't say the two verbs for "open", because that would give away one of the quiz questions!)

If you want to learn Japanese online, an option to consider is online private lessons. At Nihongo-Pro, our professional teachers will guide you in private lessons customized just for you, focused on your Japanese learning goal. With great teachers, great lessons, and a great online Japanese classroom, you can't go wrong with lessons at Nihongo-Pro.

We hope to see you in an online class one day! Until then, we wish you the best of luck and all the success on the JLPT N4 and in all of your Japanese studies.
