| Notes: |
|Shikashi is used to show criticsm or a different point of view. It can also be used to show the speakers begrudging resistance on an idea or order of action whether it be him or someone/something else. I really think this should be focused at the end of one's studies for JLPT4 as conjunctions should be the last focus for your journey. I teach Japanese myself at www.freewebs.com/kanjiwebs/ and know hands on what people mess up on.|| |
