- I made a cake according to the book, but it wasn't very delicious, so I was disappointed.
- Who is the person that you said (lit.: you were saying) you met on the subway on the way home yesterday?
- I was invited to a trip by Ms. Tanaka, but I told her that I cannot go because the trip (lit.: the time when we will go) is [at] the end of next month and [my] new job will be starting.
- The train stopped due to an accident, so I called my friend and asked her to tell (lit.: convey the message to) my teacher that I would be late for class.
