Word of the Week

Competent (adjective)

Meaning – having the necessary ability, knowledge, or skill to do something successfully.

Example of using it in a sentence: “She is a competent dog trainer.

Spelling Tip – the tricky part of this word is how we say it – it sounds like com per tent. It sounds like there is a ‘r’ in the middle but it is not there. Luckily this word is very clearly in the ‘ent’ family.

com + pet + ent

Use the word as many times throughout the week as you can. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
