So now let me start with social. The adjective social is used in front of a noun, its usual meaning is relating to society. When we talk about something that is related to society, we say social, for example, statistics on crime and other social problems relating to society, the government’s social and economic policy also relating to society. But you can also use social to indicate that something relates to a leisure activity which involves people meeting each other. For example, we’ve met at a social and business functions. So it is not always business it was also social leisure activity, which involves people meeting each other or we can say social interactions and social contacts are an important need for every human being this contact with other human beings social those leisure activities, so that it was about social What about social ball. Now we do not use social to describe people who are friendly and enjoy talking to other people. The word you want to use is social ball. For example, Adler was an outgoing, sociable kind of man, not social social ball. You also use sociable to describe someone’s behavior on a particular occasion. If someone is sociable at an event, they talk to a lot of people in a friendly way. For example, Kitty had tried to be sociable to everyone. So that was about social and sociable, but I promise you I will add one more word that is closely related to those but the meaning is completely different. And that is socialist, you do not use social to mean relating to socialism, or to describe people who believe in socialism, which is a political line of thought. And of course, it’s a lot more we’re not going to talk about socialism in this episode, but you do not use the word social or sociable to talk about something or someone obviously relating to socialism, or to describe people who believe in socialism, we use the word socialist, like socialist policies, or the socialist leader, etc. So that was everything I wanted to share with you in this English Express episode, social, sociable and socialist.
