☆  overrated  過大評価された


When you say that something is overrated, you mean that people have a higher opinion of that thing or person, that they deserve. For example, the useful phrase this week is, “Relationships are overrated!” This means that the speaker believes that being in a romantic relationship is not as important as most people think it is.

What other things about love are overrated? Well, many people in Australia think that Valentine’s Day is overrated – in other words, companies and advertising make it seem like Valentine’s Day is very important and you “need” to buy something to give to the person you love, and if you don’t it’s not true love! But many people don’t believe this and don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day – and instead, they believe that it is overrated. How about you? Do you feel that Valentine’s Day is overrated?
