I will tell you an important thing.

 

昨日のはすみませんでした。

I am sorry about what happened yesterday. (yesterday’s thing)


mono – tangible things

おいしいものが食べたい。

One useful phrase using koto is:

What is the meaning of this?

This phrase is used whenever the listener isn’t sure of the motive of the speaker.
