3. “and” – と、そして

There are several ways to say “and” (connecting words and phrases). Let’s look at two of them:

と (to) – connecting nouns

わたし は 日本語  英語  フランス語 が 話せます。

  • watashi wa nihongo to eigo to furansugo ga hanasemasu.
  • I can speak Japanese and English and French.

そして (soshite) – connecting phrases

新しい本を買いました。 そして今日から読みます。

  • atarashii hon o kaimashita. soshite kyou kara yomimasu.
  • I bought a new book. And, today, I will start to read it. (lit. And from today, I’ll read.)

    You can also use “Te” -form of a verb to link two thoughts or phrases together:

    Neko o tasukete, hon o yomimasu
    (I will help the cat and read a book).

    Ru -verb: tasukeru (help) -> tasukete
    Note: that some Te -form verbs actually end with “de”
