[JLPT grammar] ​私はつまらないです、is this sentence correct?

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


[Student’s Question]

I’m bored, so I’ll watch a movie.
Is this sentence correct?



[My Reply]

You should use ひま instead of つまらない.
And also, you can omit 私.


ひま:You have free time but nothing to do so you are bored.
つまらない:An activity is not interesting, and therefore you are bored.

私はつまらない sounds like “I am a boring person.”

That movie is boring.

I had some free time so I watched the movie but it was boring.


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!
