英文學不完 2018/03/16 人氣(116217)

生活中有許多讓人心存感謝的事,每每遇到這樣的時刻,除了「Thank you」之外,你還可以怎麼表達感謝之情呢?

在亞洲文化裡,我們很少大鳴大放的將情感表達出來;即便是表達感謝之意,也僅僅是含蓄的「謝謝」就隱藏了千言萬語。但在愛就要大聲說出來的西方世界,這招可就行不通囉!有時甚至會引起誤會,讓對方誤以為你並不特別感謝他們所謂你做的事呢!

一起來看看,謝謝還有哪些不同的說法,讓你的心意直達對方的心坎裡吧~

為平淡的"Thank you"加點油,你可以試試這麼說---

1. Thank you so much. / Thank you very much. / Thanks a lot.

Example:
Leslie: Here is the book you asked for last week.
Tammy: Thanks a lot.

假若親朋好友在特殊節日時,獻上了一個精心準備的禮物,或是為你做了一項貼心的舉動,除了呆若木雞的說完"Thank you"以後不知該如何處理接下來的尷尬,你還可以這麼說---

2. It's very sweet of you! / It's very nice of you!

你真貼心! / 你真好!

3. I'm deeply moved. / I'm deeply touched.

我好感動。

4. Oh, you shouldn't have.

噢你太客氣了!

5. You are the best! You really made my day.

你是最棒的!今天一整天都因為你而美好了起來。

Example:
Billy: Today is our wedding anniversary. I booked the finest restaurant in town for us. Let's enjoy this evening, darling!
Jane: It's very sweet of you! I almost forgot the date. You are the best! You just made my day.

Example:
Tim: Kurt, I know you've always wanted this jacket. Here, it's yours now. Just take it as a gift from me.
Kurt: Oh you shouldn't have! How do you know I like it? I'm deeply moved. Thanks so much.

朋友或是同事幫了你一個大忙,你想好好的謝謝他們的付出,你可以試試這麼說

6. I owe you big time. / I owe you one.

我欠你一次。(我真的要好好的謝謝你,欠你一個大人情的意思。)

7. You've saved my life. / You've been a lifesaver.

你救了我的命。 / 你是我的救命恩人。(當然不是真的指生命的那種救命,而是對方幫你解決了一個大麻煩,你無比感激的說法喔。)

8. I can't thank you enough.

我無法形容對你有多感謝。感激不盡。

Example:
Sue: You were late this morning! I had covered your part in the meeting. You are lucky Tim didn't say anything about your absence.
Leila: You've saved my life. I'm so sorry that I forgot to set the alarm last night. I owed you big time! Really!

有些時候,短短的一句感謝不足以表達你的感激之情,你需要正式一點、或是再次強調對方令你如此感動的原因時,你可以試試這麼說---

9. Thank you for + N./ V-ing.

"Thank you for making such a delicious dinner."
謝謝你做了一頓如此美味的晚餐。
---若要更上一層樓的強調你的謝意,可以再加上very much或so much這樣的程度形容詞加強語氣。
"Thank you very much for your time to meet with me and my family."
非常感謝你百忙中抽空見我和我的家人。

Example:
Hamish: Thank you so much for inviting me over. The party is awesome! I have met wonderful people and had a really great time.
Martha: It's nothing. We are glad to have you tonight. Enjoy yourself!

10. I truly appreciate + N.

---注意appreciate後面一般是不直接加上感謝的對象(人),而是加上感謝的事物才對喔!
"I truly appreciate your support during this difficult time for me."
我誠心地感謝你,在如此艱難的時刻裡支持著我。
"I truly appreciate all your help on this matter."
我誠心地感謝你在這件事情上所給我的幫助。

Example:
Alan: I couldn't survive from the accident without your help. I sincerely appreciate your company and support in such a hard time.
Eric: You're my brother. I love you and it's just what family should do. I believed you'd do the same thing for me.

有沒有發現,其實不需要說"thank you",也可以表達你的感謝之意呢?只要熟悉這些用法,再適度的加上一些形容詞變化,你也可以靈活運用這些說法,將你的心意更明確地傳達給對方喔!
仔細看看你的身邊,有沒有甚麼值得感謝但你從來沒有說出口的事呢?快試試這幾招,大方感謝別人的同時,也可以為自己帶來愉快的心情喔!
