14. Easy Adjectives

There are 2 types of adjectives:

-i adjectives – adjectives that end in –i
-na adjectives – adjectives that add –na when placed before nouns

The -i adjectives change:

あつい atsui – (It’s) hot || +i
あつくない atsukunai – is not hot || -i + kunai
あつかった atsukatta – was hot || -i + katta
あつくなかった atsukunakatta – wasn’t hot || -i + kunakatta

Learn this and you can use all -i adjectives!


The -na adjectives don’t change! But when placed before nouns they add a -na

げんき genki (healthy, active, fine) r げんき genki na ko (healthy child)
