Japanese verb conjugation (cheat sheet)

Japanese verb conjugation (cheat sheet)

Our cheat sheets have been some of the most popular posts on the blog for years, and we love receiving feedback and how they have been used, where in the world they are found, and teachers who swear by them.

We’ve been hard at work creating a series of cheat sheets for our Japanese textbook, but we like some of them so much that we’d also like to share them with our blog readers.

This cheat sheet is all about how to conjugate Japanese verbs, something that even advanced speakers occasionally scratch their heads about. It’ll take you through step by step how to identify which type of verb you are dealing with, and what you should do with it. We’ve also thrown in a handy Japanese verb conjugation chart for quick reference.
