Hey guys, I'm sure you can help me with this little sentence I was able to translate with nearly no knowledge. Contextwise I can think of what the second sentence is going to say, but I want to be sure.
Just about the two lower sentences.
"She doesn't wear her glasses during school. In her spare time..."
... well something again with her glasses, i know she wears them in her spare time. But I can't unscramble the をかけます-part.
PS: English also isn't my native
You're actually on the right track there. That's the only thing that sentence says:
Doesn't wear her glasses at school but wears them in private.
かける (かけます), which is literally "to hang", is the verb for "wearing [glasses]". And を is a particle that marks an object, in this case 'glasses'.
Thank you very much, Mr. Prince!
I was searching for かけ and saw かける in the extended results with a fitting possible translation (to put on), but well...
If it doesn't derails the thread to far away, could you explain the connection between かけます and かける? I'm just curious
kakeru (かける) is what you could call the "basic form" in Japanese. That's the verb form you will find in a dictionary, thus it's often referred to as "dictionary form".
kakemasu (かけます) is in general honorific speech ["allgemeine Höflichkeitsform" in German], it uses the verb stem, kake (かけ), in the so-called renyoukei and adds the suffix -masu (ます).
Might sound way more difficult than it really is but that's the whole story behind it.
-> Simply put: basic form vs. (general) honorific form

やっぱり(just as I thought)目を合わそうとしない(He avoids eye contact)
何か (a little) <--- 何か気まずい=少し気まずい
前に(to the front)移動(move) Depends on the words right after 移動, 前(front<--location) can be 以前（in the past <-- time）
He doesn't try to eat or sleep properly.
うんうん : nod

Quick translation help ?
What Is The English To Latin Translation For "Academy Of Faith And Reason"?
ごついのに＝大きいのに to something or someone big
かわっちまったな＝かわってしまった has changed /turned/replaced/
You can translate the sentence in different ways depends on the context. Examples: XXX has changed to a really big one. XXX is replaced by an enormous one. We have a big one this time. A big one is in charge this time. Any way, I am guessing that there was something small first, and then a big one showed up. (I don't expect this but, if there is no change in size, のに can be "although" instead of "to." Then you will have a totally different translation for it.)
Sorry no idea, I hate to rely on google translate, but that's all I can do: Academiae Rationem et FidemOriginally Posted by BobbieCharlie
