I came across the following kanji on a JLPT N5 vocabulary list: 違う. 違う「ちがう」, is presented as 'different'. I would appreciate it very much if somebody could present me simple examples of the use of it in the given meaning. Thank you.

When to use 違う?

You use 違う if you intend to correct the speaker about whatever point he conveys.

Example:

A:ジョンさんはアメリカ人ですか。

B:違います (or 違う, to sound colloquial) 。フランス人です。

Another use of 違う:

When a speaker describes that two things are different.

A: りんごとオレンジは違う果物です。

Hope this helps.
