在日常生活中,我們總是會碰到,不瞭解對方在說什麼的狀況。這時候,你會請對方講更詳細,或做更清楚的解釋,那用英文該怎麼說呢?讓Let’s Talk講師Niharika告訴你:

1.Sorry

”sorry”不只可以用來道歉,還可以用作請求解釋時。

範例:Sorry, I didn’t get that.

2.Come again

這是請求解釋的另一方式,當你不瞭解對方意思時可使用。

範例:This place is so filthy! Come again.

3.I beg your pardon

這是請求解釋的普遍用法。

範例:I beg your pardon ,I didn’t quite hear you.

4.Could you say that again, please

當你想要對方重複內容時,記得加上”please”較有禮貌。

範例:I am sorry, having a bad connection could you say that again, please.

5.I didn’t quite catch that, could you repeat it

請對方重複內容的用法之一。

範例:I didn’t quite catch what she just said could you please repeat that?

6.Could you illustrate

可用在你想請對方說明得更清楚時。

範例:We are working on this project but I didn’t get what your expectations are on this so could you please illustrate.

7.Could you give an example

事情經過舉例通常會更讓人明瞭,你可以用這句話來請對方以例子說明。

範例:I would love to serve my free time for these poor children but I didn’t understand the activities to be done, so could you please give me a few examples to understand it better.
