One of the most difficult interview questions to answer is, “What was your greatest accomplishment?” ... and it's particularly difficult if you don't know the meaning of the word “accomplishment”!
- To accomplish something is to do it successfully.
An accomplishment is something important that has been completed successfully, often after much effort.
- accomplish は、何かを成し遂げる、という意味です。
- SUPERVISOR: Why do you think you deserve a raise?
EMPLOYEE: Because I was able to accomplish all of my goals for this year.
- You've accomplished a great deal since you joined this company.
- We've been working on this all day, but I feel like we've accomplished nothing.
- Being the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean was quite an accomplishment.
- a: What was your greatest accomplishment?
b: Mastering the English language ... and I owe it all to WordMaster!
Oh, we especially like that last example!
