[JLPT grammar] What’s the difference between うんどうする and うんどうをする?

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



What’s the difference between うんどうする and うんどうをする?
When should we put を?

*うんどう exercise


[My Reply]

うんどうする is one word, and うんどうをする is a sentence.

うんどうする; a verb
うんどうをする noun(うんどう)+particle(を)+verb(する)

The two versions technically mean the same thing.

Using を you can mark a noun(うんどう) as the direct object of する.
It little more emphasis on the object not on the doing itself.

I exercise.

It is “exercise” that I do. It is not the other.

We should use both depending on the situation.


I hope my answer helps you.😊

I will teach you until you get it!
