Lesson 12: 〜がほしい

Usage:

Noun + がほしい + です


Meaning:

「Noun + がほしい + です」means “I want …”.

Notes:
①If you are talking to your friends, you can drop the です(It’s used to be more polite) in the end, just use 「Noun + がほしい」.
②ほしい can be written as しい, they are the same.

Examples:

あめがほしい
I want some candy.

かみがほしいです
I want some paper.

あのねこがほしいです
I want this cat.

なにべるものがほしい
I want something to eat.

なにものがほしい
I want something to drink.

Note: なにか is used to express something you are uncertain, the usage is なにか + Noun.

みずしいです
I want some water.

きみしい
I want you.

ごとしい
I want a job.

友達ともだちしいです。
I want a friend.

はなあいしい
