Other questions about "Glimpse"

Q: 'I have a glimpse of what next week's assignment will be about'. How does it sound?
A: Hmmm did you physically see the assignment? Because if you saw it, then this would make sense.
But if you haven't seen it and you're guessing/heard it from someone, then "I have a general idea of..." or something along those lines would make more sense.
Q: How come "between you and me" is more grammatically correct than "between you and I"?

(I caught the glimpse of the passage saying that the predisposition and pronoun are related...but I don't know further.)
A: "I", "you", "he", "she" etc. is only used when they are the subject (~は, ~が). For example if you want to say:
私は学校に行きます。 = I go to school.

However, if those words are used as object of any kind, "me", "you", "him", "her" etc. is used.
私とあなたの間に木があります。 = Between you and me there is a tree.

To show an example including both of them:
私はかれにプレゼントをあげます。 = I give him a present.

Possessive (~の) is "my", "your", "her", "his" etc, as long as this particle in Japanese doesn't describe a preposition in English.
これは私の本です。 = This is my book.

If the pronouns are only used as an answer to someone (using no particle in Japanese), object pronouns are used.
だれがやった?–私でした。 = Who did that? - It was me.
Q: I got a glimpse of the truth that he is not into me. does this sound natural?
A: It's correct but too poetic for daily conversation, so it depends on what this translation is for. You can say "I realized that he is not into me."
Q: I'd been given glimpse a girl but came eyes to eyes with her. does this sound natural?
A: I had been given a glimpse of a girl, but came eye to eye with her.

Make sure to add: "a" glimpse "of" a girl. And also, just "eye to eye" instead of eyes. I hope this helps.
Q: If you want a glimpse of a man soul and get to know him really well, don't look at him when he is silent or talking or weeping or admiring noble ideas, you just need to look at him when he just laughing, if he laughs well then he is a good man. does this sound natural?
