- For Teachers
It's about the verb "to facilitate". I had never heared it for many years. But suddenly, this year, this word is being used over and over. It can be, of course, that it is a coincidence.
Here my question to the natives: do you use this verb regularly? Or do you prefer other words like to provide, support...
What I suspect a little is, that it has become a fashion word (like to innovate - no commercial without innovation...).
Thank you for "facilitating" me

It is used quite often here in the States, particularly in a business setting. It is also part of my normal lexicon.
I would only use the word in formal situations.
I use it extremely frequently in my business writing.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I hear it a lot, but don't use it much.
