Today’s Word: substantial

November 8, 2017     =========

☆  substantial  かなりの


This is a formal word, meaning a large amount or a large degree of something. Sometimes the best way to learn a new word is to have a substantial amount of practice using it! So, here are some sentence examples from me.

A substantial number of mothers with young children want to return to work, but cannot because they lack access to affordable childcare.
He has made a substantial improvement since being admitted to hospital last week.
We all need to agree on the next step before we can make any substantial progress.
We want to buy a house, but we need such a substantial deposit, it seems impossible.
He made substantial contributions to different charities again this year.

Now, why not try and add your own sentences to these to create a substantial list that you can use for learning. 🙂
