Last two weeks we learn about preposition in Japanese. The main theme is どこにありますか？ (Where is it?)
The usage of います/あります differs.
います / いません to show the presence/absence of living things such as human.
あります / ありません to show the presence/absence of non living things such as doll.
During class, our sensei played a recording in japanese that give instruction where to put the pictures. And this is how it looks like.
Being 20+ years old, I enjoyed it as much as during my kindergarten days.
Next, I will show you how to use preposition in a sentence.
Q: ねこ は どこ ですか？
Q: Where is the cat?
A: ねこ は はこ の なか に います
A: The cat is inside the box.
The phrase どこですか literally means where. You can also use it when asking for direction.
Example: Where is this shop?(while showing the picture of the shop in your smart phone)
Where is your home? 君の家はどこですか？
