While filling in the application I have met the next sentence:
- ｢コースガイド」から希望する大学を選ぶこと｡ There was also a translation into English:
- Please choose the universities that you wish to attend from among those listed in the“Course Guide.”
But, it was the first time for me, when I have met the verb 希望する. I know the word 希望 and it's meaning "hope", but not the verb.
1) I am not even sure, how to translate it. For ex.: 大学を希望します ? 2) Also I am confused, in which situations (except this application, where I need to fill in a chosen school) can I use this verb 希望する. Is it very formal? Is there any situations, whe this verb can suit?
I hope, my question is clear.Thank you a lot in advance.
