RELIABLE: meaning and examples

Good morning. Yesterday we learned the verb to rely on someone or something. It means to depend on someone or something. It also means to trust someone to do something. Today we will learn about the adjective form of this word. Today's word is: reliable (adjective; pronunciation --> ri-LAI-abel) It means: a person or object that can be trusted or believed; someone or something that can be relied on or depended on to perform or do something. Example 1 You should choose someone reliable for the job, someone you can trust when you are not there. The last person you hired was not at all reliable. Do you remember? He was always forgetting things or arriving late. Example 2 My father-in-law says that the Germans make the most reliable cars. He says that they rarely break down and that they last for a long time. I don't know anything about cars so I guess I'll believe him! If you have any questions about today's word, please don't hesitate to contact us. Have a good day.
