I'm new here so if a similar question have been asked before then feel free to delete the thread. I need some help with this "seemingly" easy phrasing. What kind of grammar pattern goes before words like よかった、ありがとう、うれしい、or any other adjective. is it TE form, plain form, plain form + から And if I want to say "I was happy that he did it" Do I change うれしい and the verb or just うれしい？
I think you could use the te-form in most situations:
- ～てくれてありがとう -- Thank you for ...ing
- ～てよかった -- It's good that... / I'm happy (to hear) that...
- ～と聞いてうれしい -- I'm happy to hear that...
(Thank you for helping me.)
(I'm happy that I could see you.)
(I'm happy to hear that you passed the test.)
(I'm sorry that Yamada-san can't make it.)
if I want to say "I was happy that he did it" Do I change うれしい and the verb or just うれしい？
I think you could say 「～～てうれしかった」.
(I was happy that you invited me.)
(I was happy that my dad came back.)
