This is a discussion about 呉れる

help translating....

Could someone please help me translate the following sentence? I don't understand the structure of the last phrase--Google translates the last phrase as "so she does it well," but the only meaning of くれる I've learned so far is "to give," and I don't understand んだ at the end.


Many thanks for any help.

The んだ at the end explains the first part of the sentence. In writing, のですis more common while んだ is casual. んです、んだ forms are used to explain "why" or for further clarification. The sentence above could be an explanation as to why the brother often receives things from the younger sister. e.g. "Why does your younger sister give you so many things?" "Because my younger sister likes to make various things, I often receive."

The よくin that sentence means "often."
