Commonly Confused Words: “世話せわをする” and “面倒めんどうる”

One of the commonly confused words is “世話せわをする” and “面倒めんどうる” and could you explain what the difference is? The way to use them is quite different. Let me introduce what the difference is and how you correctly use them in ordinal conversations.




世話せわをする(sewa-wo-suru)

Take care of / Look after

世話せわをする” means “Take care of or Look after” and which has been used for children, pets, elderly people, etc. Native speakers sometimes use “世話せわする” instead of “世話せわをする”. Both of them are the same meaning, however, “世話せわをする” is the polite way to use than “世話せわする”. The basic way to use it “わたしは___の世話せわをする。(I take care of ___.)” such as “わたし子供こども世話せわをする。(I take care of the baby.)”.

Example
ゆか
ねえちゃんが風邪引かぜひいちゃったからいぬ世話せわなきゃいけないんだよね。 (I gotta take care of her dog because my sister had a cold.) (我姐姐感冒了,所以我得照顾好狗。) (언니가 감기에 걸려버려서 강아리를 돌봐야 해.) (Chị gái tớ bị cảm lạnh nên tớ phải trông con chó.)

面倒めんどうる(mendou-wo-miru)

Take care of / Look after
