Before we move onto verbs and sentences with verbs, it's important to take a look at sentence structure. To understand the sentence structure of Japanese, we have to take a look at English sentence structure and compare them. Take for example:
I go to school.
I is the subject, go is the verb, and school is the object. So for English, the sentence structure for this is subject, verb, object. Now let's take a look at Japanese.
(Watashi wa gakkou ni ikimasu.)
I go to school. (A literal translation would be 'I school go')
わたし (I) is the subject, がっこう (school) is the object, and いきます (to go) is the verb. As you can see, this is different from English, as the sentence structure is subject, object, verb. It may seem a little confusing, but this is important for forming sentences in Japanese when you use verbs.
So to recap, sentence structure for English and Japanese is like this:
English: subject, verb, object
Japanese: subject, object, verb
This will become more apparent later and especially once you begin forming sentences. Study hard!
