In Japanese, their are two particles used when a verb is in a sentence. を (wo) is used when directing an object, and に (ni) is used when the verb is associated with time. Ex #1. とうきょう に いきます (tokyo ni ikimasu) (I) Go to Tokyo Ex #2. にほんご を はなします (nihongo wo hanashimasu) (I) Speak Japanese The end of the verb ます(masu) is pronounced “mas”. This will be common for the other verb-endings. ます is the present/future-tense verb ending. The verb ending ました (mashita) is pronounced “mashta”. This is the past-tense verb ending. Ex #1. こうえん に あるきました (kouen ni arukimashita) (I) Walked to the park
