In English, we "look at" or read pages. We do not use the word "see" in this case.

見る can means "to see" as much as "to look at" or "to watch".

How do you translate this in Japanese then? "Please don't look at the next page YET"

次のページをまだ見ないでください。「まだ」is usually translated as "yet".

What exactly is the で for in this case?


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

見ない is in its て-form, which can be used to ask someone to do or not to do something. In polite speech, people add 下さい (ください) at the end, but in casual speech, it is usually dropped.
