Stop saying “very”! Get rid of using the word “very” to describe everything!

Very hot, very cold, very expensive, very ugly. Yes! The magic word of “very” really applies to basically everything. But imagine:


“The weather is very hot and we are very hungry and very tired.”


When you keep hearing someone speaking or reading an article keep repeating “very, very, very, very…” it is really boring and drives audiences’ attention away. To get rid of such monotonous situation, you need to use better words that make your language sound richer and more like a native speaker.
