1. Isn’t 開く usually pronounced あく?
2. I agree with moli and disagree with Jay. As moli said, we already know what the word means in English; we don’t need English examples unless they’re translations of Japanese examples. Without Japanese examples, there’s no reason to have English examples either, which means there’s no reason to have anything in this video aside from the words themselves — which would make this a Video Vocab lesson. So in other words, the lack of Japanese examples makes this nothing more than a glorified Video Vocab lesson with unnecessary cruft.

Juan san,
Both of them are ok.
The first one is more casual than the other though.

To say, “I have a friend.” do you say, “tomodachi ga iru” or “tomodachi ga imasu”?

I’ve just started this class a few days ago and there are so many things I’ve already learned!
I found this through a writing in Hiragna lesson, and eventually I found myself on here! I’m so happy this cite exists! 😁😁😁😁
