在英文中如何禮貌又不失親切地邀約別人?當別人邀請你時,不論是答應或是婉拒,合宜的回應都相當重要。

Let’s talk的英文老師特地整理出了在英文會話之中,如何邀請別人、以及答應或者婉拒別人邀約的用法。相信你學會之後,也能夠更加的進退得宜。

邀約別人:

1. Would you like to join me for dinner tomorrow?

2. Would you care to join us for dinner?

3. I was just wondering if you would like to come over for dinner tonight?

4. We’d be pleased/delighted/very happy to have you over for dinner tonight

答應別人的邀約:

1. Thank you! I’d love to.

2. Thank you! I’d be delighted to. What time should I be there?

3. Yes, thank you. That would be wonderful/great.

4. Oh certainly! Thank you.

也可說”Oh Sure! Thank you.”更為簡潔有力。

婉拒別人的邀請:

1. I’d love to, but I’m afraid I’m busy tonight.

2. I’m terribly sorry. I have other plans.

這個拒絕的方法較能表達你深刻的歉意與惋惜。

3. Thanks for asking, but I’m busy.

拒絕之前先感謝對方體貼地想到你,這裡可把”asking”替換成”inviting”。
