Today's Lesson
CONFIRM   確認する


  • To confirm something - for example, the results of a discussion, a reservation, or other specific information - is to make sure the information is correct or to say it is definitely correct.
  • confirm とは、例えば、話し合いの結果や予約などの特定の情報について、その情報が正しいかどうかを確かめる、または間違いなく正しいと述べる、つまり、確認する、という意味です。



  1. (calling a hotel)

  2. Even if you have a verbal agreement, I think it's important that you confirm it in writing.
  3. (e-mail from a customer to an office supplies vendor)
