Section 2 Japanese is Wonderful Because It Doesn’t Require Rigid Precision

Watasi wa Iku is Present Tense and
   Asu Watasi wa Iku is the Future Tense

  Let’s compare Japanese and English senses of time.

  The English versions are more precise and reassuring. They explain things briefly and clearly. There is no difference between the present and future tenses in Japanese; both use the verb kaku. If you add the word asu ‘tomorrow’ and write the sentence, Asu watasi wa tegami wo kaku you can indicate that the action will occur in the future. There is no need to be as precise as with English. Rather, the easier it is to remember, the better.
