Hi giulia,

Thank you for posting!

I'm sorry for this late reply.

The verb ใ‚ใ‹ใ‚‹ is a kind of special word and it doesn't have future tense nor present progressive tense.

When we want to say "They will understand," we add ใ ใ‚ใ† after it and say ใ‚ใ‹ใ‚‹ใ ใ‚ใ†ใ€‚

In Japanese, we don't basically say this verb in present progressive tense, as it's considered same as present tense.

But we sometimes say ใ‚ใ‹ใฃใฆใ„ใ‚‹ in some special situations.

Hope you enjoy learning Japanese with us!

hi from italy! some question:

1)why ๅฐๅญฆ็”ŸใŸใกใฏใ€ใใฎๅ•้กŒใŒใ‚ใ‹ใ‚‹ is not a "non -past tense" but only "present tense"? is there another way to express the future tense?


2) in the same sentence why there is not a way to say it in the present progressive tense? how can i say "The elementary school students are understanding the problem"? i don't know if my language gap because in italian this sentence can exist (gli studenti stanno capendo il problema).

thank you :)

it's a good way to learn kanjis because you're supposed to know all kanas right now then you don't need to write them again and again. just my opinion.

Today was the first time I watched one of these video lessons through, and I must say it's actually a good way to train understanding and composition of grammatically correct sentences. Though I imagine it's rather hard to learn new words especially with new kanji from the video. Wouldn't it be possible to make ready-to-use flashcards for such lessons? With sentences not just single words preferably, for studying in the context of a current lesson. It could be based on the line-by-line transcripts, I think.
