|futaro||Please, think to the people who have a hardtime understandin japanes writing and put the example also in romanji. Thank you.|| |

|blabby||This example is JLPT level 1. It is formal and WRITTEN grammar.|
Just click on the example and you will get a tranlastion into hiragana from the Edict dictionary.
If you can't read hiragana, you will find studying advanced written grammar a little hard...
|rogen||Is this just like a formal version of 「だって」、As in, アメリカ人だってご飯を食べますよ。|
Hmm actually that's not right, is it. I guess it's more like でも or であっても, yeah?
|evdsluys||From what I have studied so far であれ has a similar meaning to であっても and でも|| |
|lucinda lohmanoota||The book that I am studying from has a [de are..de are] as the phrase to be studied, but I do not see any examples here. Is it a totally different expression?|| |
|LR||deare and [deare..deare] are different.|
deare would be for "数分間であれ" please practice, if only for a few minutes per day
[deare..deare] would be for "男性であれ、女性であれ" whether you are male or female, you have the same human rights.
