Today’s Word: reliable

☆  reliable  頼りになる


Being reliable is a great character trait, it means that people can trust you to do the work or help them out when needed. Being reliable is highly regarded in Australia. How about in Japan?

The other useful phrase this week is, “Thanks for always being reliable.” How would you respond if your boss or friend said this to you? Would you automatically say, “Oh, it’s nothing…” or dismiss the compliment? If so, what’s a better response? You could try saying something like, “You’re welcome, I’m so glad I can be of help.” How else might you respond?
