This is a great resource for testing Japanese learners’ knowledge of Japanese sentence structure. Rather than SVO (subject, verb, object) which is used in a lot of simple sentences in English and a lot of Romance languages, Japanese uses SOV, which is subject, object, verb. For example, "I eat sushi" translates to "I sushi eat". It's also not unusual to have sentences appear in OSV form. So whilst vocabulary is essential when learning Japanese, it's also important to know which words go where in a sentence.
