adjective: arrogant

https://englishhelponline.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/arrogant2.jpg?w=300

In my blog today, I would like to write about the adjective “arrogant”. We use this word to describe a person who thinks they are always right and who never listens to other people. For example:

My boss is so arrogant. He never listens to anyone’s suggestions about the company.

I don’t like Martin anymore. Before he was very confident, but now he’s just become arrogant.

My coworker thinks he knows everything about this company even though he’s just started working there. He’s such an arrogant jerk!

Peter is very good at his job, and he’s usually right about everything. Unfortunately, that has made him a bit arrogant.

So, as you can see from my examples, the word “arrogant” is always negative. Please be careful of the pronunciation of this word. Some people confuse it with the word “elegant”, which has a completely different meaning. Please make sure you pronounce the “r” sound very carefully in order to have the correct pronunciation.
