☆  unacceptable  受け入れられない


If something is unacceptable, you disapprove of it and feel it should not be allowed to continue. We can describe the following kinds of things as being unacceptable: behavior, conduct, actions, and situation.

When we talk about something being “socially unacceptable” we mean that it is not OK to do that thing in social situation. This is interesting for different cultures, for example, foreigners living in Japan might do something that is socially acceptable in their home country, but totally unacceptable in Japan. Can you think of any behavior that is unacceptable in Japan that might actually be acceptable in another country? If you can, comment on the Facebook post on the English Now! page.
