Assure (verb) If you assure someone that something is true or will happen, you tell them that it is definitely true often in order to make them less worried. Example: “I guarantee you that the surgery is routine,” the doctor assured me.
Collapse (verb) If something collapses, then it falls down very suddenly. Example: After the earthquake hit, buildings all over the city collapsed.
Glance (verb) If you glance, at something or someone you look at them very quickly and then look away again immediately. Example: After I tripped down the steps, I glanced up and down the hallway to check if anyone had seen me fall.
Panic (verb) If you panic, you suddenly feel anxious or afraid, and act quickly and without thinking carefully. Example: When I accidentally knocked over my mother’s favorite vase, I panicked and tried to put it back together with a glue stick.
Stun (verb) If you are stunned by something, you are extremely shocked or surprised. Example: The audience was stunned when the pig sprouted wings and flew across the stage.
Tense (adjective) If you are tense, you are stressed and nervous and cannot relax. Example: When I feel tense, there’s nothing better than a warm bath and a cup of hot chocolate.
