Twenty-Five Praising Expressions


What does it mean to praise someone?

Praising

Praising is expressing warm approval or admiration. Praising is similar to complimenting in so many ways. Both words are used to express admiration. However, for native speakers, when you compliment someone, you might be merely courteous, but when you praise someone, you genuinely highlight his or her positive aspects.

Example:

"We can't praise him enough—he did a brilliant job."
