詢問他人是否需要幫助

  • Would you like me to ……?
  • Shall I ……?
  • May I offer you ……?
  • I’d be happy to (do sth).

聽聽下面影片的例子,看看別人怎麼用! (0:44-1:15)1

接受他人好意

  • Thank you. / Thank you very much.
  • Thank you very much, it’s very kind of you ……

回絕他人好意

  • No, thank you. I can manage.
  • No, thank you. I’m fine (good).
  • Thank you for asking, but …….
  • I’m afraid ……
    (ex. I’m afraid I have to say “no”.)

請求他人的幫助

  • Could you please …….?
  • Would you ……? / Can you ……?
  • Could I possibly ……? / Is it all right if I ……?
  • Would you mind ……? / Do you mind if I ……?
    (最後這兩句,當你表示願意幫助別人時,回答是用”no”,因為這兩個句子都有「是否造成不便」的意思。
    ex. A: Would you mind if I had some water? B: No, please go ahead.)

答應幫助他人

  • Yes, of course. / Yes, that’s fine.
  • Certainly. / Absolutely.
  • By all means.

拒絕幫助他人

  • No, I’m sorry. / Sorry, but ……
  • I’m afraid not. / I’m afraid + 原因
  • Well, the problem is + 原因

提出建議

  • I would suggest/recommend/propose …….
  • May I suggest …… / I wonder if I might suggest that ……
  • If I were you, I would ……
  • Perhaps we/they/I/you could ……
  • What would you say to ……

表達意見

  • I think ……. / I believe …… / I suppose ……
  • In my opinion, …… / In my view, …….
  • From my viewpoint, ……. / From my point of view, ……. / From my perspective, …….
  • According to me, …… / It seems to me that……
  • To be honest, ……. / To tell you the truth, …… / To be frank, ……
  • As far as I am concerned, ……. / To my mind, ……2

 對他人意見表示認同

  • I agree. / I couldn’t agree more.
  • Exactly. / That is precisely the point.
  • I think we are in agreement on that ……
  • We wholly endorse the view that ……. / We concur with the view that ……

 對他人意見表示不認同

  • With respect, I do not agree. / With all due respect, I must disagree.
  • I’m afraid, ……
  • I beg to differ on the point of ……
  • I agree up to point, but …… / To a certain extent I agree, but ……
    (最後的兩句是最委婉的,也就是「我部份贊同,但是……」的意思)

向他人道謝

  • Thank you. / Thank you very much.
  • I can’t thank you enough.
  • You’re too kind. / Thank you kindly.

向他人致歉

  • I’m (so) sorry. / My apologies.
  • I do apologize for ……
  • Excuse me for ……
    (除了口語的不好意思,Excuse me也可以用的非常正式
    Ex. Excuse me for leaving early. 抱歉我得先走)
  • I beg your pardon, ……
    (I beg your pardon除了請他人重複所說的話外,也有極正式的用法
    Ex. I beg your pardon, I didn’t mean to interrupt. 抱歉,我不是故意打擾的)
