☆ green 未熟な
Today’s word is used to describe someone who has very little experience of life or a particular job. For example, “The new employee is very green, very immature.” Did you know there are a lot of other ways to use “green” in English? Here are a few interesting ones:
Someone who is “green” is someone who tries not to harm the environment. For example, they don’t use plastic bags, they try to follow the “Three Rs” – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
The “Greens” are members of green political parties – political groups that have their main focus as the environment.
Cooked leaves such as spinach and cabbage can be called “greens”. For example, a mother might say to their child, “eat your greens.”
Green vegetables are unripe vegetables.
Someone who has a “green thumb” is very good at gardening.
And someone who is “green with envy” is very, very jealous.

Lots of fun and different uses of “green” don’t you think?
