Welcome back to the world of Berlitz WordMaster@Work!

Last week we were dreaming of right livelihood. This week we'll be making a more trying, taxing sort of living. The result will be another set of important adjectives - words you'll have at the ready to talk, complain, or vent about the things you may NOT like about your job.

Today's Lesson
STRESSFUL   ストレスの多い

Explanation

  • Something (for example, a difficult situation) is stressful if it makes you feel nervous, worried, or under pressure.
  • stressful とは、何か(例えば、困難な状況など)が人を不安にさせたり心配させたり、プレッシャーをかけたりする、つまり、ストレスが多い、という意味です。
