Many a time people ask me…Can you replace the word ‘VERY’ with something that sounds smart and better?

And my answer is, YES OF COURSE!

जैसा कि मैंने last blog में mention किया कि ‘VERY’ एक ऐसा शब्द है जिसे हम अक्सर अपनी आम बोल चाल में overuse करते हैं।

I’m not saying that it’s completely wrong, but then, it’s also not completely correct to do so.

ज़्यादातर Very शब्द का प्रयोग हम तब करते हैं जब हमे किसी शब्द की value पर emphasise करना होता है।
For example:
• You look very very beautiful.

सुनने में लगेगा की आप पूरे दिल से किसी की खूबसूरती की तारीफ कर रहे हैं पर फिर भी एक आम शब्द यानी ‘beautiful’  का इस्तेमाल करने से आपकी compliment का impression कुछ फीका पड़ सकता है।

Try this:
• You look gorgeous.

Now, when you say that to someone, it makes your compliment much more appealing (and the gorgeous person will blush like anything😄).

Sometimes, we use ‘VERY’ when we just can’t remember the exact word which could be frustrating.

But, I’m here to help.😇
Let’s continue from where we left off.
