I love your classes sensei! However saying that the nai form is the negative of the masu is misleading as we have already learned here that masen is the negative of masu. nai form is the negative of the plain verbs ending in u and ru so tabe.ru --- tabenai , nom.u --- nomanai. I think this needs to be explained or it will confuse many people. Make more videos! really great way to learn Japanese!

She's *great*! She uses very basic language to explain these grammar rules. She has great command over body language, which really helps you understand way better.

Why do you conjugate from Polite/Formal positive (masu) to Casual/Informal negative (nai). Shouldn't you show people how to conjugate from Casual/Informal positive (dictionary form) to Casual/Informal negative (nai) and from Polite/Formal positive (masu) to Polite/Formal negative (masen). They way you are teaching will make people conjugate incorrectly and think the correct way to make the Polite/Formal positive (masu) conjugation to become negative is to make it the Casual/Informal negative (nai) which is incorrect.You should always conjugate from the base verb (dictionary form) as masu is a conjugation of the dictionary form itself. Example:食べる (casual positive)  - 食べない (casual negative)食べます (polite positive) - 食べません (polite negative)I think it is bad teaching when you teach incorrectly and teach bad habits.

Thank you very much. My teacher dont want explain more and i didnt get it during class. You dont know how much help you just did to me. Im appreciated it.
So (correct me if I'm wrong) for example I want to say "I will not go" it's watashi wa ikanai. And if I said watashi wa ikimasen, that would translate to "I don't go" Right?
