We like it or not it’s one of the great weapons we can own to encounter people troubles as well. The English language is the most sought-after language in recent phase. People connect professionally.  When we keep our English vocabulary in check we create a long-lasting impression on the person whom we interact with.  Keeping our English vocabulary in check is pretty much the best thing we can do to keep our communication influential every time.


People emphasize on the word “very” too many times that it doesn’t sound superb. How about replacing the word with a different word and eliminate “very” altogether?

Here is a compiled list of words that you can use when you feel the extremity of that emotion inspite of using “very”.
