Imagine you as a representative of a popular party are going to talk to your country's vice president and as a sign of your respect towards him, you want to express your feelings. I was wondering if someone could let me know which one of the following choices work better in my self-made example:

-...................to have this opportunity to hold this discussion with you.

a) It was a great honor for me

b) It was a big source of pride for me

For me, they both work here properly though the first one seems to be more common. I guess one can exchange them together without any specific change in meaning.

If you confirm my taking, then please let me knew if they both sound natural in this question.

1 Answer 1


The only choice that would make sense is

It was a great honor for me to have this opportunity to meet and discuss something with you.

Saying it was an honor compliments the recipient, saying it was a great source of pride compliments you.
