A Word for Wednesday

Today’s Word for Wednesday is the noun confidant (not to be confused with ‘confident’, an adjective meaning having strong belief or full assurance; or having no uncertainty about one’s own abilities, correctness, successfulness).

A confidant is a person you trust enough to tell anything to. They might give advice, too.

Here at The English Garden we are lucky to have a couple of close confidants with whom we can share our thoughts, hopes and occasional problems, and when we need it they give us great advice too!

And you? Tell us about it and practise your English!

One thought on “A Word for Wednesday

  1. Hello,
    It’s true that words open our minds to knowledge. Moreover, like in this case, they allow us to be aware of those people around us on whom we can count, the special confidants. I completely agree that it is a great privilege to be able to share whatever you like or need with them. At the end, our close confidants are the ones who, somehow, help us to learn about ourselves.
    Best wishes,
    Dani
