To Be Visible
To Be In Sight, Can See, To Seem
intransitive verb, ichidan verb
This word consists of kanji with hiragana attached. Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means see, and 見える is to be visible, or to be in sight, though it's often more naturally translated into English as can see. It's used when you don't actively intend to see something, it just happens.
This verb can also mean to seem, when talking about how you perceive something you can see.
The reading for this word is the same as the one you learned with the kanji (the kun'yomi reading). So as long as you know that you should be able to read this word as well.
The volcano is visible from here.
Can you see the villager over there?
I'm really curious about how I seem to others.
