April 18 – reassure

☆  reassure  自信を与える


If you reassure someone, you say or do things to make them stop worrying about something. This week’s useful phrase is, “Thanks for reassuring me.” I had to use this phrase just last week!

It was bedtime, and my son wanted me to read a book, but it was too late, as he had been watching silly YouTube videos instead of getting ready for bed. So, I didn’t read a book to him, and he screamed and cried, and screamed some more! Oh boy was he noisy!

I actually sent a message to my neighbors saying sorry for the noise! Luckily, they replied that they couldn’t hear him and not to worry because this kind of thing happens to them too. Phew! So, I replied, saying, “Thanks for reassuring me.” I’m very lucky to have good neighbors!!
