☆  approve  承認する


There are a few ways to use today’s word. On the topic of praising each other, if you approve of someone or something, you like and admire them. For example, “I didn’t approve of his manner.” means that you thought he was rude. Or, “My mother has never approved of my choice in boyfriends.” means that your mother is always against your choice in boyfriends: she doesn’t like them.

If you approve of an action, event, or suggestion, it means that you like it or are pleased about it. For example, “I approved of the proposal my coworker suggested at the meeting.” Or, “Not everyone approves of her idea to relocate the business.”

Can you use approve in a sentence?
