In this sentence:


What is the best literal translation of 勉強できる機会ができたから and それで勉強して
Is できたから saying "Because I'm giving you..."? and is それで勉強し saying "At that studying" or "While you are studying"


~ができる means to be made/created or to form (intransitive).

Ice forms at a temperature of 32°F.
(taken from here)

勉強する機会ができた literally means "a chance to study formed", or more naturally, "you've got a chance to learn (from how I played today)".

それで in this context literally means "by means of it" or "using it", and それ here refers to the "chance to learn". A less literal translation would be "You guys, take this opportunity and learn from me, and keep dreaming of defating me."

  • So does mean something like "Using this opportunity, study it(the opportunity)"? – Jon Nov 15 '16 at 22:45

    Well we don't say 機会を勉強する at least in Japanese :-) The object of 勉強する here is implied; "the way I play", "my move", etc. That's why I translated it as "learn from me". – naruto Nov 15 '16 at 23:15
