April 30 – impress

April 30, 2019 =========

☆  impress  感銘を与える


If something impresses you, you feel great admiration for it. So, for example, the Q&A for this month is, How do you celebrate someone’s success? And the sample answer is “I let them know how impressed I am with them.

Another way to use this word is to impress something on someone, which means that you make them understand its importance. For example:
I had always impressed upon my children that if they worked hard, they would succeed.
I have impressed upon my staff the need for more professionalism on the telephone.
I tried to impress upon him what a huge honor he was being offered.

These two words are a little different, can you use impress in both ways in a sentence?
