    Re: trying to improve my writing and communicating ,but in different way

    I'm surprised you didn't just open a dictionary, but basically patient describes a person who waits calmly and quietly, while impatient is the opposite.

    e.g.
    "He waited patiently for everyone to sit down before beginning his sermon."
    or
    A: "Will you hurry up! Come on!"
    B: "I'm working as fast as I can, be patient!"

    These sites give lots of examples of a word or phrase in real use:
    Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA)
    British National Corpus (BYU-BNC)
