實用職場英文:如何專業的表達「不同意」

EIE美語 / 提供

  上一期教大家如何專業的表達「同意」(Agreeing Professionally),本期來看看當意見不同時,如何專業又不失禮的表達「不同意」(Disagreeing Professionally)。


  商務社交場合中,遇到意見分歧時,一定要小心表達。掌握語言的禮節與強度,巧妙又婉轉的表達不同意(Disagreement),才顯得得體。

Tactful Disagreement婉轉巧妙的表達異議
一、I’m afraid(恐怕)(這是很常見的英式說法)
I’m afraid Stella can’t come today. She’s on a business trip.(恐怕今天Stella不會來了。她在出差。)

二、Unfortunately, (很不湊巧、很不幸)
Unfortunately, the flight has been cancelled.(很不幸地,飛機已經被取消了。)

三、Sadly(遺憾的、悲傷的、非常的)

  1. Sadly, I don’t agree. This idea is quite rough.(很遺憾,我並不同意。這個想法不夠詳細。)
  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)(這是相當正式的說法)
With all due respect, we shouldn’t hold an event this month.(恕我直言,我們不應該在本月舉辦活動。)

Scenario: Sabrina and Alan are talking(情境:Sabrina和Alan在辦公室聊天)
Alan:Good morning, Sabrina. Have you seen the news lately?(Sabrina早安,你最近有看新聞嗎?)

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國家攀升得很快。我認為他們沒有即時做好防疫工作。)

Alan:I’m afraid I don’t quite agree. COVID-19 caught everyone by surprise, I believe they are doing all they can.(我恐怕不完全認同你的看法。新冠病毒疫情的影響讓大家都很驚訝,我認為西方國家已經盡可能在處理防疫工作了。)(quite 的用法有很多種,非正式口語對話中,經常看到「quite +agree/like/enjoy, understand」來表達自己的看法或偏好,端看上下文脈絡來判定意思。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. (但願如此。好在臺灣曾經歷過SARS,學習到不少。我們準備得很完善。)

Alan:Don’t worry, the virus will disappear in the summer. Then we can all go back to normal. (別擔心,病毒將會在夏天消失。到時候一切都會回歸正常。)

Sabrina:Unfortunately, that is not proven because they are still fighting the virus in Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines.(很不幸的,這並未被證實,因為新加坡、泰國、菲律賓等國家,同樣也在努力對抗疫情擴散。)

Alan:Oh, I see. Then we should continue to wear masks, no matter what kind. It is better than not wearing any. (了解。那我們應該持續戴口罩,不論哪種款式的口罩。至少都好過什麼都不戴。)

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,我相信醫療級口罩和N95仍是最合適的。一般市售的口罩只能擋灰塵。)

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.(你說的對。我們也應該保持社交距離來杜絕疫情擴散。同時,全世界都應該知道臺灣能幫上忙。)

Sabrina:I’m in total agreement. We should all do our part to fight this.(我完全同意。全民防疫,我們應該從自身做起。)
