Confusing Words


Does “bored” mean the same as “boring”? What’s the difference between “funny” and “fun”? Here are some of the most commonly confused English word pairs.

brave and well-behaved


brave => showing no fear of dangerous or difficult things Examples: It was a brave decision to quit his job and start his own business. Three brave, heroic, courageous firefighters of the city of Charleston have perished fighting fire in a most courageous and fearless manner, carrying out their duties. well-behaved => behaving in a way that is accepted as correct Examples: Raising a well-behaved child or teen is not always easy. It was a boring lesson, so it’s no wonder the children weren’t well-behaved.

Bored - состояние человека I'm bored
Boring - когда мы говорим о вещах , т.п. That lesson was boring

прилагательные, описывающие состояние человека, заканчиваются на ed, что-то происходящее, неодушевленное - ing
