Reinforcing commonly used words in context
It looks like you’re pretty fresh into French and LingQ. So I’ll offer a little advice that you can take or leave. It‘s generally accepted on LingQ and in the extensive reading community in general to not worry so much about exact definitions and grammatical structures (especially at the beginning). Learners tend to forget most of this anyway and even if they do remember the rules/structures consciously it’s not that useful in speech. As long as you have a vague idea of the meaning of the sentence then that’s good enough. If you’re similar to me and you like things to be exact and fully understood before moving on, then you’d be better off changing your mentality and getting used to things being a little messy at first. After enough exposure you’ll start to “get a feel” for the meaning of the word and it becomes intuitive instead of a conscious memory.
Lastly, you’ll see a lot of really bad definitions of words in beginner material since the people that saved the words didn’t really understand them fully. The definitions get better as you progress. I wish LingQ would create some definitions for beginner material that are more accurate than letting the uninformed masses make a mess of everything.
Yes, I agree with you. I've accepted that I cannot be exact or fully understand everything even when the definitions are good. There are a lot of intertwining components that will be realized in time, some of which I already have. I suppose it is just difficult to let go of things that I see as very important to the language.
They may be important for what you think is important, but might not actually be important. In time you‘ll find out what works and what doesn’t. Keep grinding away and focusing on words read. You’ll get a good idea of where things are going once you reach a few thousand words.
