I want to say that I've been the last year serving myself with your absolutely magnificent website, which hs enabled me to learn hundreds of kanjis. Dunno if there's still somewhere out there patrolling the page, but I want to make clear the fact that you are making a dream possible.

行きます is very common, it is the polite form of the verb 行く.

You should be able to find it in the dictionary now, 行く has some irregular conjugations, and because of that it wasn't searching on its conjugations in the dictionary.  I've fixed that so you can find it now.

is not much used?

I only find 生きます

could you guide me?
