☆ essential 不可欠な
Something that is essential is something that is extremely important or crucial to the situation or project. Since we’re talking about “Make it Happen” this month, then you could talk about the things that are essential to making your project happen, or essential to reaching your goal.
So, if “essential” is something that we definitely need, what do you call something that is not necessary, as in the opposite of essential? In fact, we say it is a “nonessential.” As you know, in English, when we make a negative, we often add “un” or “in”, but in this case, we add, “non.” Something that is nonessential is not absolutely necessary, it would be good to have, but it’s not vital.
