Ryan’s Word Of The Day: Sabbatical (noun)

Meaning: A period of leave from something

Example (1): “I took a week long sabbatical from HelloTalk and entrusted the word/phrase of the day to be delivered by my magnificent parents. They are better than me!”

Example (2): “Some people choose to take a sabbatical from their career to travel, study or take a step back from the daily pressures of life.”

See ya!

N.B. The original meaning of this word is paid absence from work, usually in the education sector, but is now also commonly used in the ways expressed above.

    We have paid sabbatical at work, and I know several people who were originally planning to take theirs around March to June this year, but they all had to cancel the trips due to the pandemic. #sigh Btw, welcome back!
