[Q&A] I am struggle で and に, I always confused two of them.

Today I am going to share the Q&A quoted from my JLPT N4 course!



キャンプで、水を持っていきます。or キャンプに、水を持っていきます。
Which is correct?
I am struggle [で] and [に], I always confused two of them.

*水 みず water
持っていく もっていく bring



[My Reply]

キャンプに、水を持っていきます。is correct.

This に marks the purpose.
If に is used as the “purpose” marker, you can replace に with ために(in order to, so that, for).

I will bring water for camping.

If you say, キャンプで、水を持っていきます, it means “I (will) bring water somewhere while camping.”…it doesn’t make sense.

That’s because で marks the place where the action is taken.


I hope my answer helps you.😊



In the JLPT course, you can ask me any questions as much as you want.
I will teach you until you get it!
