Today’s Word: seek

☆  seek  求める


Today’s word is a formal word that means contacting someone in order to ask them for help or advice. It’s been a long time since I thought about the past tense form of a verb, but I was thinking about this one – do you know the past tense form of this word? If you don’t know the answer, you could always seek help from an English teacher. 😉 ha ha

The past tense form of this verb is sought. So, you might seek advice from a boss after you sought advice from a coworker and didn’t get a good answer. You might not hear this word very often, but one very common way it is used is for seeking a second opinion. For example, “The vet told me my dog had cancer, but I sought a second opinion.” Or, “For important matters, you should always seek a second opinion.”

Have you had to seek a second opinion on anything recently? Was the second opinion the same or different?
