闺蜜约你逛街,可你加了几天班,只想躺

同事约你聚餐,不过你已经答应爸妈回家吃饭了

刚认识的男生想和你约会,但你对他并不感冒

……

怎么办?



“改天吧”

这个中文里用来婉拒他人的万能句

不要太好用

那英文里应该怎么说?"改天吧"英文怎么说?

可以直接翻译

How about another day?

Maybe some other time.

虽然这样说没问题

只是实在有些死板,显得好没意思……

用一句英文俚语来说就活泼多了



Take a rain check

“take a rain check”字面意思是“拿一张雨票”。

短语起源来自美国的棒球文化,如果比赛时因恶劣天气而不得不终止,官方将发给观众交换券(check),凭借此券可以观看下一次的比赛。

由此衍生出了 take a rain check,使用在将约定改期的情况下。

例句

Thank you, but I have to take a rain check on your invitation.

谢谢你,但很抱歉我不能接受你的邀请,改天吧。

Would you like to have dinner with me tonight?

你愿意和我共进晚餐吗?

I'll take a rain check! I've got stuff to do.

改天吧,我有点事。



生活里有些事总是不得不拒绝的,今天小酱就跟大家分享一下,面对邀请或请求时,如何用英文礼貌地拒绝。如何拒绝邀请

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

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

很抱歉,我无法去。要是换个时间就太好了!

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

好主意,但我这次无法参加了。

4.That's very kind of you, but …

您太好了,不过...

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

我可以稍后加入你们吗?我必须先完成一些事情。

6、Today's not so good - how about tomorrow?

4、Sorry, but that's not really something I can do. Maybe Emma can help you.
