JLPT N5 Grammar: も (mo)

も (mo)

Meaning: also, too, as well

How to use the: Noun + も

Explain:
Use a description of things / properties / actions similar to a given object / property / action. (to avoid repeating the noun は / verb repeatedly)

Example sentences:
1. 山田さんは本を読むことが好きです。私も同じです
Yamada-san wa hon o yomu koto ga sukidesu. Watashi mo onajidesu
Mr. Yamada likes to read books. Me too

2. あなたの家には犬が9もいるんですか?
Anata no ie ni wa inu ga 9 mo iru ndesu ka?
Are there 9 dogs in your house?

3. 昨日忙しくて寝る時間もありませんですた。
Kinō iso gashikute neru jikan mo arima sende suta.
Yesterday was so busy, there was no time to sleep.

Attention:
“も” has the same function as “は”, “が”, so it is not adjacent to “は”, “が” when used for a subject.

で/ と/ へ/ など も~
休日ですが、どこへもい行けません。
Kyūjit sude suga, doko e moi ikemasen.
Holidays like that but not going anywhere.
