17. To Want ~がほしい

Saying “I want (something)” is pretty easy. A quick and dirty tip is to just say the thing you want and add ga hoshii to it.

のみもの が ほしい です
nomimono ga hoshii desu.

(I) want a drink.

  • NOTE: The desu is optional and is usually dropped.  nomimono
    ga hoshii.
    is perfectly fine in spoken Japanese.

Next, let’s ask a question. 

Can you figure out how to do it?  That’s right, add a ka REVIEW HERE

ケーキ が ほしい です 
ke-ki ga hoshii desu ka?
Do you want cake?
