    When does one use から?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Keith_APP

    2 major uses:

    1. Origin of displacement (as in this example)

    2. Cause

    Shouldn't this be うち for my house.

    Is it wrong to put "ここは" at the start of the sentence for "It is" ?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RogerS.McN

    ここ means this place (close to speaker)

    "shall we go to the zoo?"
    "It is far from my house. I don't think I have the money to get there."

    In that example "it" refers to the zoo which is in an undefined place. Therefore it wouldn't make sense to change it to "here".
