「話說回來」英文怎麼說?I was wondering…英文例句大集合!


圖片來源/stocksnap

small talk(閒聊)意指將臨時想到的事情當成話題,藉此不斷推展話題。儘管如此,要是完全不管正在聊的話題,突然插一句:「Are you planning to go to Mexico on your vacation?」(你放假時會去墨西哥嗎?)對方說不定會覺得:「怎麼突然問這個?」

但是如果像I was wondering, are you planning to go to Mexico on your vacation?(話說回來,你放假時會去墨西哥嗎?)這樣,在前面加上I was wondering,就能夠讓整段對話自然又流暢。有時候雖然不是閒聊,但是遇到有點想知道但又偏離原話題的事情時,這個句型同樣很方便。
