I have two questions from lesson 3.1 I hope someone can help me with.
Question 1: I want to make sure I understand how to express walk / walking. In lesson 3.1, there is the example:
あるく より らく / Aruku yori, raku desu yo!
Easier than walking
Wouldn't "easier than walking" be:
あるいて より らく / Aruite yori, raku desu yo!
My understanding so far is:
あるく / aruku = walk stem form
あるき ます / aruki masu = to walk
あるいて / aruite = act of walking (te form)
I'm hoping there is an upcoming lesson on understanding the "te" form more :-)
Question 2: In the same lesson, when practicing this sentence:
くるま で のぼって たのしい です か / Kuruma de nobotte masu tanoshii desu ka?
Is it fun to climb by car
I keep making the mistake of putting "を" before "tanoshii".
くるま で のぼって を たのしい です か
Is this a case where を is not used not because it's correct, or because it's not really necessary as it's implied? If it is used, how does the meaning of the sentence change?
