Today’s Word: heartfelt

October 28, 2017 =========

☆  heartfelt  心からの


Heartfelt is used to describe your deep or sincere feelings or wish. It is often used in a sad, or negative situation. For example, sending a heartfelt apology to someone. Or expressing your heartfelt sympathies to someone who has had some tragedy happen to them. The government might say that they send their heartfelt condolences to the relatives of victims of a terrorist attack.

However, it can be used in a positive situation, too! For example, you might send a new mother your heartfelt congratulations on her new baby. Or heartfelt congratulations for someone who has recently found a new job. Or you might say to someone who has arrived in Japan that it is “my heartfelt wish that you enjoy your stay in Japan.”
