Is it correct to use 'impression' like this?
Amercia always leaves impression to people as a country of having freedom, demomcracy and civilised.
ARe they correct?
1. She gives the impression of being very busy.
2. Her lecture gave us a deep impression. (why it is not correct?)
1. First sentence appears correct though alternatively you can say, "She gives an impression that she is being very busy."
2. Her lecture had a deep impact on us.
In second sentence you had an impression on your mind and no one gives or receives an impression.
'It had an impression on me/him/us/them etc.
'It left an indelible impression in minds of people.'
