100 GRAMMAR POINTS

91. While ながら

While doing this I also did this…

Construction:

  • Take the ます form of a verb and drop the ます (the stem)
  • Add ながら

音楽を聴きながら勉強をしました。
ongaku o kiki nagara benkyou o shimashita.
While
studying, I listened to music.


本を読みながらご飯を食べます。
hon o yomi nagara gohan o tabemasu.
While
eating a meal, I read a book.

One useful set phrase is 残念ながら zan nen nagara. This means, “That’s too bad” or “I regret (to say)” or “Unfortunately”
