In one of the drills from "The Times Who Say に" this pops up.
"Fill in the blanks: きょう、日本ご＿＿ 二じかん ＿＿ べんきょうします。"
The correct answer is "を, (blank)" but this has left me a tad confused. 日本ご and 二じかん are both nouns. Can を be used to connect two nouns?
My only guess to what is happening is 二じかん is an adverb in this case, and the verb of the sentence is actually 二じかんべんきょうします which を is connecting to 日本ご.
Is this what's going on or am I missing something here? Thanks a ton for any advice!
