Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違いやすいボキャブラリー


  • Congratulations! is something you say to someone to show that you recognize - or are happy about - their success, good fortune, etc.

    Be Careful! When used in this way, this expression is always plural. We do NOT say Congratulation!
  • 誰かの成功や幸運を認めたり、一緒に喜んだりする気持ちを示したいとき、Congratulations! と言います。

    注意: Congratulations! と、必ず-sをつけて、複数形にします。Congratulation! とは、言いません。
