benkyou suru – to study. benkyou means study.

例文 2:

さくねんにくらべてことしははるのおとずれがはやかった。
Sakunen ni kurabete kotoshi wa haru no otozure ga hayakatta.
Spring has come early this year compared with last year.

sakunen – last year

hayakatta – was early. Hayakatta is the past tense of hayai which means early or fast.

I think this is an easy grammar point to study.

    isn’t 良くwell and not よく? I thought the hiragana one is often and the kanji one is well, plus isn’t 良く a suru verb? wouldn’t it be 勉強良くする for studies well? or like 日本とアメリカ関係良くしたい?
