|The word for school is gakkou. Teachers are sensei and students are gakusei (or seito). College is daigaku (literally "big school"). A college student is daigakusei. In order to say what grade you are in, or whether you're a freshman-senior, you say "I'm a --year student." Where -- is replaced with the correct year.|
first year student
I'm a second year student.
To say "I am a student at the University of ----" you say: ---- daigaku no gakusei desu. or ---- daigaku no seito desu. This also works for other types of schools like high schools, junior highs and elementary schools. Just insert the name of the school in place of ---- and the type of school in place of daigaku. Note that elementary school students are not generally called seito or gakusei, but jidou(children or juveniles).
West koukou no seito desu. I'm a West High School student.
the day after tomorrow
|Students of course also do a lot of shukudai (homework). To do homework is shukudai o shimasu. The verb "to do" is shimasu. Let's try a few sample sentences now.|
Mainichi, nihongo o renshuu shimasu.
Every day I practice Japanese.
|Mainichi, eigo o benkyou shimasu.||I study English every day.|
|Asatte, nihongo o renshuu shimasu.||I will practice Japanese the day after tomorrow.|
|Kinou, suugaku o benkyou shimashita.||Yesterday, I studied math.|
|Asatte, nihongo no shukudai o shimasu.||The day after tomorrow I will do Japanese homework.|
|Kinou, suugaku no shukudai o shimasen deshita.||I didn't do the math homework yesterday.|
