[Common Mistakes] Using ‘かわりに’ and ‘かわって’ correctly
Today I am going to share the homework correction quoted from my JLPT N3 course!
The student’s sentence is not correct. Can you find the mistake?
I eat cake instead of bread.
かわりに can be used in the sense of simple substitution, but かわって cannot.
かわりに should be used in this sentence because it indicates that the cake is eaten as a substitute for bread.
かわりに and かわって can only be interchanged if they represent to change the role.
Use a tablet instead of a computer.
I went on a business trip in place of the director.
*to change the role
I hope my explanation helps you. 😊
