So I am currently learning through the Genki textbooks and I'm starting to use は and の. I understand their general ideas は is used to clarify the subject and の is used to signify possession but I ran into these two examples in my textbook:
This sentence is talking about Kimura's university, so shouldn't this sentence be Kimura's possession and start with the の first?
This sentence seems to contradict the structure of the above sentence. It is talking about Kimura's major, again possessive like the last time, but this time reverses the は and の.
Is it that Kimura is Sakura University's student meaning that it's the university possessing him?
I am still very much a beginner so forgive me if this is obvious or I am thinking of it too much like English. Thank you for your time!
