Today’s Word: sociable

April 6, 2017 =========

☆  sociable  社交的な


Sociable people are friendly and enjoy talking to other people. Sometimes when I am with my chatty friend, I think, “Wow! She is so sociable, I wish I were more sociable. People must think I am very anti-social.” Anti-social is the opposite of sociable.

However, I am actually pretty sociable in reality, but in comparison to my chatty friend, I seem very shy and anti-social. In fact, there’s an idiom that is used in this situation, when someone is so chatty, that other people (like me!) don’t get a chance to say anything, we say, “I couldn’t get a word in edgeways!” Have you ever heard this idiom? It’s useful to use if you ever get stuck wanting to talk but not being able to because everyone else is talking too much!
