first of all I need the translation of these verbs in ます form

- write
- call
- drink (coffee)
- dance
- drive (car)
- smoke (tobacco)
- take a photo
- play (soccer)
- go out (from house or though the door)

2. I am studying this rule:

when joining an い-adj sentence to another sentence, take away the い-from the い-adjective and attach くて

my question is, replacing くて instead of い , does it apply on the two adjectives or one only,
see this example which one is right,
ミラさんは若くて、背が高くてです。

OR
ミラさんは若くて、背が高です。

which one is right?


thank you in advanced.🙂

Hello, Red5.

ミラさんは若くて、背が高いです。is correct.

Usually you can't say くてです.

And the i-adjective + desu pattern may sound a little awkward.
So ミラさんは、若くて背が高い女性です。 would be better.

Write should be 書きます (かきます), not 歩きます (あるきます)
