    Gullible

    Dear Teachers

    I would like to know if the word "gullible" is commonly used among the native English speakers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK and US?

    Please advise

    Thanks Raymott. A follow-up question. Is "gullible" usually learned in primary school
    in the native English speaking world? Please advise.
