It seems they're getting people prepared for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
I've heard that many people are learning Japanese specifically for that. That's why they wanted to put this section in the tree :P
かいじょう can be many things, without the kanji how do I know?
The same way you'd know if someone asked you this verbally.
It'll be almost always written in kanji in real use, and context will help.
I got this question on repeat. Bug in the lesson?
Yeah, I also get it on repeat... It happened so many times in the Japanese course. I think it's a bug
Probably, but now you'll never forget how to ask this question.
Japanese has a lot of homonyms , so kanji and context are key. 頑張って下さい。
With this weird intonation it sounds like オリンピックか以上までどうやって行きますか？
Can you put どうやって in the beginning of the sentence or does the position matter?
No, Japanese is a SOV (Subject-Object-Verb) structured language meaning that you always place verb last except in some exceptions.
and どうやって is part of the verb.
hi, as non english native i put" how to i get to the olympic stadium?" is this wrong? and if so, why?
"How do I get to the olympic stadium?" should be correct.
Shouldn't there be a の particle between オリンピック and かいじょう?
