实用职场英文:如何专业的表达「不同意」

EIE美语 / 提供

  上一期教大家如何专业的表达「同意」(Agreeing Professionally),本期来看看当意见不同时,如何专业又不失礼的表达「不同意」(Disagreeing Professionally)。


  商务社交场合中,遇到意见分歧时,一定要小心表达。掌握语言的礼节与强度,巧妙又婉转的表达不同意(Disagreement),才显得得体。

Tactful Disagreement婉转巧妙的表达异议
一、I’m afraid(恐怕)(这是很常见的英式说法)
I’m afraid Stella can’t come today. She’s on a business trip.(恐怕今天Stella不会来了。她在出差。)

二、Unfortunately, (很不凑巧、很不幸)
Unfortunately, the flight has been cancelled.(很不幸地,飞机已经被取消了。)

三、Sadly(遗憾的、悲伤的、非常的)

  1. Sadly, I don’t agree. This idea is quite rough.(很遗憾,我并不同意。这个想法不够详细。)
  2. He seems to be sadly lacking in a sense of direction.(他似乎非常缺乏方向感。)(lack=缺乏/不足)

四、With all due respect, (恕我直言)(这是相当正式的说法)
With all due respect, we shouldn’t hold an event this month.(恕我直言,我们不应该在本月举办活动。)

Scenario: Sabrina and Alan are talking(情境:Sabrina和Alan在办公室聊天)
Alan:Good morning, Sabrina. Have you seen the news lately?(Sabrina早安,你最近有看新闻吗?)

Sabrina:Yes, COVID-19 cases are increasing in the West. I don't think they are handling it very well.(有阿。新冠病毒感染案例在西方国家攀升得很快。我认为他们没有即时做好防疫工作。)

Alan:I’m afraid I don’t quite agree. COVID-19 caught everyone by surprise, I believe they are doing all they can.(我恐怕不完全认同你的看法。新冠病毒疫情的影响让大家都很惊讶,我认为西方国家已经尽可能在处理防疫工作了。)(quite 的用法有很多种,非正式口语对话中,经常看到「quite +agree/like/enjoy, understand」来表达自己的看法或偏好,端看上下文脉络来判定意思。例句中的quite=非常、完全,十分。)

Sabrina:I hope so. Thank goodness Taiwan learned because of SARS. We are very well- prepared. (但愿如此。好在臺湾曾经歷过SARS,学习到不少。我们准备得很完善。)

Alan:Don’t worry, the virus will disappear in the summer. Then we can all go back to normal. (别担心,病毒将会在夏天消失。到时候一切都会回归正常。)

Sabrina:Unfortunately, that is not proven because they are still fighting the virus in Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines.(很不幸的,这并未被证实,因为新加坡、泰国、菲律宾等国家,同样也在努力对抗疫情扩散。)

Alan:Oh, I see. Then we should continue to wear masks, no matter what kind. It is better than not wearing any. (了解。那我们应该持续戴口罩,不论哪种款式的口罩。至少都好过什么都不戴。)

Sabrina:With all due respect, I believe surgical and N95 masks are still the best. The masks at normal stores are usually only for dust.(恕我直言,我相信医疗级口罩和N95仍是最合适的。一般市售的口罩只能挡灰尘。)

Alan:You’re right. We should also all do social distancing in order to prevent further spread. Also, the world should know that Taiwan can help.(你说的对。我们也应该保持社交距离来杜绝疫情扩散。同时,全世界都应该知道臺湾能帮上忙。)

Sabrina:I’m in total agreement. We should all do our part to fight this.(我完全同意。全民防疫,我们应该从自身做起。)
