[JLPT grammar] Which is better, ふっているけど ? ふっているだけど?

Today I am going to share the Q&A quoted from my JLPT N5 course!



or ふっているだけど?
I saw many times “だけど” “ですけど”.

It’s raining but I walk with my dog.


[My Reply]

We can use だから(so…) at the beginning of a sentence, but here it is used as a conjunction of a sentence, so you should remove だ.
Because だ come after “na-adjective dictionary-form”, or “noun dictionary-form”.

ふっている is a verb, we don’t add だ or です before けど.

〜だ is a plain style of 〜です(polite style).

しんせつ: na-adjective

先生: noun

[sentence]+けど、following sentence.

You can put any sentence before けど, but add だ only if you want to use na-adjective/noun dictionary-form.


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!
