When I hover my cursor over 보고 있습니다 it tells me "is ..... watching." So I wrote The teacher is watching the map. If you want people to use the words "looking at," please make the hint reflect this!

I left Korea over 18 years ago and even though I tested out of much of this, I worried that I would be missing vocabulary if I just skipped. When I come across something written that is not how I would say it in casual conversation, I hover over it for the hint. Then I apply it and learn it this way. You taught me the answer "watching" by what the hover hint says .... so either give me credit or change the hint.

why is 'the teacher is looking at the map' not right? What's the Korean for that if this is not?
