SYNONYMS to the Rescue (Part 1): EMOTIONS

I don’t hate English subject, but I don’t love it much as well. Nonetheless, it really makes a HUGE difference if you are able to understand and communicate in English.

Again, as a disclaimer, I am not good in English but I’d like to share with you some good things I know that may be beneficial to you as well. So, let’s start with the synonyms that we can use in our sentences in terms of various emotions. Game?

synonyms-part-1-emotions-laugh

There you go! Try to utilize these synonyms and let me know how it goes! 🙂
