Student or Learner
Since english is a second language for me, certain idiomatic expressions cause me some difficulties. For example:
Which expression is the most appropriate ?
a) I approve of your conduct (most popular)
b) I approve your conduct ( is this good english ?)
means that you think somebody's behaviour is excellent
to approve of sy/sg as in having a positive opinion of someone or something
b) no , since it doesn't really go together with "conduct"
to approve is usually used meaning to accept, permit or officially agree to something
The court approved the sale of the property.
hope this helps.
