Jisho lists 教わる as an intransitive verb, but its actually a transitive verb with a "passive" meaning. For example you could make the sentence: 私は日本語を教わりました which means "I was taught Japanese" and 日本語 is the direct object of 教わる。 教わる・教える do not form an intransitive/transitive pair and instead form a pair of two transitive verbs similar to 預かる・預ける, both of which can take a direct object（傘を預かってもらいました・彼に傘を預けました）and both of which are correctly listed by Jisho as transitive. So 教わる should be changed to reflect this. Leebo at 2019-10-27 11:41:26 UTC You would have to submit a change to the appropriate database. Jisho just displays freely available resources.
