Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違えやすいボキャブラリー


  • A freshman is a student in the first year of college or a 4-year high school (which are common in the United States). Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are in their second, third, and fourth years, respectively.

    Be Careful! The plural of freshman is freshmen, NOT “freshmans”.
  • freshman は、4年制の高校(アメリカでは多い)や大学の1年生のことです。sophomore は2年生、junior は3年生、senior は4年生です。

    注意: freshman の複数形は freshmen です。freshmans ではありません。
