☆  potential   可能性


Potential can be used in two main ways, the first way is talking about someone’s potential, or their capability of becoming something in the future. The second way – and today’s meaning – is about the potential for something to happen.

For example, if you are attending a job interview, you might want to ask about the potential for travel, or the potential for using English in the position. Or if you’re brave you might even ask about potential pay rises once you have shown you have a good ability for the job. And, if you’re looking at the job for career advancement, then of course you also want to ask about advancement potential.

When you had your job interview, did you ask these kinds of questions about the potential of the position.
