100 GRAMMAR POINTS

35. Must do なければなりません

This is a mouthful, but it is so useful. Learn it well.

Construction:  plain negative form – i +  ければ なりません kereba narimasen

ピーマン を 食べなければ なりません
[Would be 食べなfor the plain negative form] pi-man o tabenakereba narimasen.
(I) must eat green peppers. 

(Many Japanese children don’t like green peppers)

Say that five times fast with your mouth full!

Perhaps the most useful usage is:

~しなければ なりません
The shi is from suru (to do)

勉強 しなければ なりません
benkyou shinakereba narimasen.
(I) must (have to) study.

しなければ なりません
shinakereba narimasen.
(I) must (have to) do (it).
