ASK A QUESTION Difference between glad and happy
I have a lot of doubts accumulated. Another one:
-I'm happy because you're coming -I'm glad to hearing from you/ I'm happy to hearing from you/ I'm glad to see you (wrong?)
What's the difference?
There is no difference in those sentences. "Glad" and "Happy" are interchangeable there.
However, here are some sentences where "happy" is used but "glad" would generally not be used:
"Does he make you happy?"
"Happily ever after"
Hi! Don't forget "to" is part of the infinitive. You need to say "to hear" not "to hearing"
There's a very slight difference between the two words, but as was said in that sentence they're pretty much the same.
Glad is like "pleased". - Something has happened, which has made me happy. Happy is the emotion itself.
I wouldn't say "I am glad" without a reason, something has to make you glad. But I can be happy for no reason at all! :D
I'm glad to pass my exam
Is your exam in the future the past or the present?
If you are doing it now:
I'm glad I'm passing my exam! (It's very easy and I know I am passing it!)
If you did it in the past:
I'm glad I passed my exam.
If you are doing it in the future:
I'm glad I will pass my exam. (You are certain you will pass it)
I want to pass my exam! (You don't know if you will pass)
I'm glad to hearing from you? you can say it in another context and without ing? " I'm glad to pas my exam?
The correct phrases could be:
"I'm glad to hear from you" or "I'm happy to hear from you."
"I'm happy that I passed my exam" or "I'm glad that I passed my exam."
Happy can be a long-term thing. You can have a happy life, even though some days aren't so nice, you are still happy. Or you can be happily married.
Happiness can also be short-term: I am happy now that I have eaten dinner.
But gladness tends to be only for short-term things, never for long term things.
Glad is a result of something It is invoked by relief through a positive event.
I'm glad you liked it.
Whereas Happy is a mood or emotional condition, independent of anything
I'm feeling happy today.
We can replace happy with glad; but not the other way around.
