Style: "Agfa"“I was born in the year 2000.”

It can be easy to make mistakes with “born” because it’s actually the passive form of “bear”. If a woman bears a child, the child is born. The past tense is “bore”: “She bore two children.” But we often just say, “She had two children.”

「私は2000年に生まれた」

実はBorn は bear の受動態なので間違いやすいです。女性が子供を産むと、その子供は産まれたとなります。過去形は bore です。She bore two children. 「子供を2人産みました」ですが、She had two children.の様によく had を使って表現します。
