Today’s Word: discussion

☆  discussion  議論


This week’s useful phrase is, “I think we need more discussion on this topic.” When do you think you could use this phrase? You might use it with your spouse, when deciding whether to change jobs, buy a house, have kids, but it doesn’t have to be that kind of deep conversation. It could even just be a discussion about where to go for dinner!

In any case, you could use this phrase, when you felt there was no more time to talk right then, or you were tired or busy and wanted to stop the discussion for now and talk again later. If you did want to continue the discussion, it would be a good idea to suggest a time when you could continue, just make sure that the discussion doesn’t get forgotten about. I know a lot of people are experts at saying, “Let’s talk about it later.” And then “later” never comes!!
