Middle school class week 1 of June 2018
I often teach the be verb as equals.
Ichi is one.
ichi = one
Using the be verb with I, you, we, they, she, he, it.
We use are for nouns that are a group of something.
We use is for a noun that is singular
We use am for I
“You” is a special case. It can be singular and plural. So we use are.
