DISCUSS   話し合う


  • To discuss something means to talk about it with another person, usually more seriously or thoughtfully than during a casual conversation.

    Be Careful! Although we say “talk ABOUT something”, we do NOT say “discuss ABOUT something”.
  • discuss とは、人と何かについて話し合う、という意味です。普通、日常の会話よりも真剣に、あるいはよく考えて話すことをさします。

    注意: talk ABOUT something と言いますが、discuss ABOUT something とは言いません。


  1. (a father to his son)
    Sit down, son. I want to discuss something important with you.
  2. Most of my friends don't like to discuss serious subjects. They just want to talk about movies and sports.
  3. We need to discuss our plans for Carol's surprise party.
  4. a: What did you discuss at your job interview?
    b: Mostly we just talked about the other jobs I've had.
