Adjectives ~すごーく嬉しいって言いたい時~

Posted by mittanr on   3 comments   0 trackback


I learned about how to use adjectives in today's English lesson.

For example,when I'd express the feeling that I feel very happy,
we can use 'delighted', but we shouldn't say "I feel very delighted."
Because 'delighted' mean 'very happy'.
In this case, we should use 'really' or 'absolute' instead of 'very'.
So, I can say "I feel really delighted, or I feel absolute delighted."
And, we can't say "I feel absolute happy."

That is to say, we can't use 'very' before strong adjectives like '
delighted', and we can't use 'absolute' before regular adjectives
like 'happy'.
And we can use ‘really’ before both adjectives.

Wow, I didn’t know that until now!

By the way, I nearly came back to my home by train though I went
to the English conversation school near Yokohama station by my
car today.I noticed my mistake before riding train,
but I felt very annoyed myself!

Thank you for sharing what you learned from today's lesson.
As you said, I would say " I'm very happy !".
I feel really delighted that you taught me how to use this. ^^
