“I have to assist a meeting this afternoon.”

2013-08-23Really? What are you going to help it with?

Translation: « Je dois aider une réunion cet après-midi. »Biz Group

Why wrong: Assist is a false friend. It doesn’t mean assister, but rather aider. To be taken seriously…

Correct it: What is meant here is attend. Say “I have to attend a meeting this afternoon.”
