☆ lead （目的などに）導く
When you “lead” someone you go first, or go with them to show the way. In fact, there are a lot of ways to use this word – and it can be a verb or a noun, but we’ll just look at the verb uses.
Lead a group of moving people – you walk in front of them. “Follow me, I’ll lead the way.”
Lead someone to a place or thing – you take them to that place or thing. “My boss led me to my new office.”
If a company or a country leads others in an activity such as research or business, it means they are more successful or advanced in that activity. “Cities rather than states or countries are leading the way on matters of equality.”
You can use “lead” to describe the kind of life someone is living. “She leads a busy life.” Or “He led a normal, happy life with his wife and children.”
Do you know any other ways to use “lead” as a verb?
