Words to learn
くじ – 9 o’ clock
までに – by
よう に する means “to try to” or “to make it a point”. So you can see that to use it correctly, it needs to be added after a plain verb only, no other forms and no adjectives involve. In the above example would be くる which means to come and then add ようにする after it. That will mean “to try to come” or “to make it a point to come”.
いく よう に する – to try to go
よむ よう に する – to try to read
ねる よう に する – to try to sleep
You should probably be able to understand how to use よう に する correctly. It’s not so hard. Enjoy learning Japanese!
