Is the grammar of this sentence correct? この文の文法は正しいですか?


Because I started learning Japanese in May, My Japanese level is very bad.

Also, I was wondering, if I wanted to say: "Because I only started learning Japanese in May..." How would I say that in Japanese?

    I would not say it is grammatically wrong.

    However, the first clause will sound more natural if you use ばかりなので instead of から, as was pointed out by Brian.

    Also, we usually describe レベル not as being 下手 or 上手, but as being 高い or 低い. (I guess this goes the same for the English word 'level'. You would not normally say a good level or bad level, but say a high level or low level, right?)

    Therefore, the second clause can be 私の日本語のレベルはとても低いです. Another natural way of saying this is 私の日本語はとても下手です (= I am very poor at Japanese).

    So the whole sentence could be paraphrased into:

    I think you might be trying to say:


    (Native Japanese speakers, please feel free to comment! :) )


    こんにちは 英語が全然駄目ですから、英語で説明することもできません>< よろしくね~


    I think it should be understood without saying「 私の英語のレベルは」
