The objective is for us to learn the Japanese words since we, as in my case, already clearly know the meanings of the English translations. It would be good if explanations are less in English but just give us examples of word usage in Japanese.

Nevermind on the 未来 question. My mistake.


By the way, i'm agreed with some other people who says that the examples in English are not helpful. Is better to say examples in Japanese. Look my mistake for an instance ?

Why is it that 見る(みる) and 未来(みらい) have different kanjis but means the same? ??
