[Common Mistakes] Why is 太るようになる incorrect?
Today I am going to share the homework correction quoted from my JLPT N4 course!
The student’s sentence is not correct. Can you find the mistake?
I ate too much cake and gained weight.
〜ようになる describes certain changes,
But originally 太る(gain weight, grow fat) is a verb that includes the meaning of change, there is no need to add ようになる.
Using both 太る and ようになる is redundant.
I went on a diet and lost 10 kg.
やせる：get thin, lose weight
I studied every day and my test scores improved.
上がる：rise, improve, go up
I hope my explanation helps you. 😊
