1. Hello guys,
    You might be surprised about this exercise topic, I know I was. I was expecting the particles to keep adding up and become more challenging but as it turns out we're back to two rather basic ones: で and を.
    I consider these two to be part of the "easy" ones along with の.
    Anyways, as usual, here we go.
    New Methodology
    Instead of constantly retyping each function, I figured I would categorize and numerate them. This will allow me to simply call up the number when justifying my answer making the process faster. I left some out because some functions were too similar to deserve a separate, distinct definition.

    placed after a noun of location, indicates where an action takes/took place.
    indicates the superlative
    in the pattern "de mo"... "de mo"... lists location.
    indicates the time when an action or a process takes place.
    indicates what method or tool is/was used employed for an action.
    gives the price of something.
    indicates the time or quantity that makes a unit.
    indicates the composition of an object.
    indicates the reason for an action.


    placed after a noun, marks it as the direct object of a verb.
    placed after a noun with a causative verb, indicates that a person/thing caused a person/thing to do something.
    after a noun indicating an occupation, shows that the subject of the sentence is engaged in that occupation.
    indicates the point of departure.
    used with a verb of motion, indicates that an action is continued at the place preceding it.

    So the mistake I made here was regarding #9. I thought that it was where the action took of place of graduating. Requires further investigation. I'll be asking about this one.

    I made a mistake (three in fact):
    #22: わたしはその英語の単語「を」辞書「で」調べました。
    The mistake I made lies in my misunderstanding of vocabulary. I thought 単語 meant "dictionary" but it meant "word". 辞書 meant "dictionary". The rest is easy to figure out.
    #23: (2) 拾って here means "to pick up". I thought the taxi was the method used to get to the hotel, thus the で there.

    So basically, this was very easy but I guess it's as good practice as any. I think that's 3 mistakes in total out of 59, so that's 94%. Not sure if should create yet another thread, I don't want to spam or wait for a comment here.
