☆  deserving  値する


This week’s useful phrase is, “I don’t know anyone more deserving than you.” When do you think you would use this kind of phrase? The perfect time would be when someone at work gets a promotion, and you agree that they are the best person for the job. In other words, they are very deserving of the promotion.

Interestingly, you could also use this phrase to express disappointment if someone else got the promotion instead. So, if you believe that Mr. B is deserving of the promotion, but Mr. J got the promotion, you could express disbelief by using this same expression. “I don’t know why Mr. J got the promotion. I don’t know anyone more deserving than you.”
