Negative Verb Practice Exercises

Vocabulary used in this section

This is the same list of verbs from the previous practice exercise. We will use the same verbs from the last exercise to practice conjugating to the negative.

Kanji
I have listed the kanji you will need for the vocabulary for your convenience. The link will take you to a diagram of the stroke order.
However, it doesn't clearly show the direction (though you can kind of tell by the animation) so you should check with a kanji dictionary if you're not sure.
I recommend practicing the kanji in the context of real words (such as the ones below).

1.    - see

2.    - come; next

3.    - go; conduct

4.    - go home

5.    - eat; food

6.    - drink

7.    - buy

8.    - sell

9.    - hold

10.    - wait

11.    - read

12.    - walk

13.    - run

14.    - play
