有禮貌地say No要這樣說!_have

有些童鞋最不會拒絕人了,就算心裡想著say No,嘴上還是說了Yes,用中文不會,用英語就更不會了。但是,有些人、有些事是不得不拒絕的。今天小編就跟大家分享一下,外國人面對邀請、嘮叨和請求時,都是如何有禮貌地拒絕的呢?

如何拒絕邀請

你要做的事情就是:

1)說出感謝 ;2)說“不” ;3)給出理由

還有可能:

4)建議其他時間或日期。

舉個例子

Thank you so much for the invitation, but I'm afraid I have a prior engagement.

非常感謝您的邀請,但我已經有約了。

更正式一些

Thanks for the invitation!I'm really sorry, I can't come - I've already got other plans.

感謝您的邀請!不過很抱歉我不能來,因為我已計劃了其他事情。

還可以說

I'd love to, but I'm afraid I can't.Would another time be possible?

我很想去,不過恐怕不行。可以換個時間嗎?

I'm very sorry, but I won't be able to make it.Another time would be great, though!

很抱歉,我無法去。要是換個時間就太好了!

It's a lovely idea, but I won't be able to join you this time.

好主意,但我這次無法參加了。 T

hat's very kind of you, but …

您太好了,不過...

Could I join you later?I just have to finish something.

我可以稍後加入你們嗎?我必須先完成一些事情。

Today's not so good - how about tomorrow?

今天不太合適,明天如何?

如何打斷嘮叨

如果對方喋喋不休,自說自話,而你又有別的想法,不如這樣打斷對方:

I understand what you're getting at, but (I'm just not interested/I just can't /it just won't be possible) at the moment.

我瞭解你所說的事情,只是我現在(不感興趣/無法去/不可能去)。

或者直呼其名來強調語氣:

Look, Michael, I'm sorry, but it's just not going to be possible at the moment.

邁克爾,實在抱歉,但是現在確實不可能。

如何拒絕請求

如果有人求你幫忙,但你實在無法幫ta,那麼試試這麼說:

I'd like to help you but I can't take on any new commitments at the moment, I'm afraid.

我很想幫助你,但現在恐怕無法再增加任何新任務了。

給予Ta信心,鼓勵Ta獨立完成:

Actually, I think this is something you could do really well yourself!

事實上,我覺得您完全可以自己做好!

Why not have a go yourself, and give me a shout if you need help?

要不您先自己做著,在需要幫助時喊我?

打時間牌:

I need to think it over.Can I get back to you later?

我得好好考慮一下。我稍後告訴你好嗎?

I'll think about it and let you know, OK?

讓我考慮一下,然後再告訴你,可以嗎?

“嫁禍”他人:

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that, but have you asked (X)?

我對這個事情不是很熟誒,你問過某某了嗎?

Sorry, but that's not really something I can do. Maybe (X) can help you.

抱歉,我實在做不來這事。也許某某可幫你。

Oh dear, I'm terrible at that sort of thing!What about getting (X) to have a look at it?

哦,親愛的,我最不擅長做這種事情了!讓某某來看一下怎麼樣?

總之要記得,不要急於回答“是”或“不”然後再後悔。考慮清楚後再回答,保持禮貌但要堅決,而且確保讓事情朝自己希望的方向發展。
