介绍:
During the holiday, I invited a lot of people over. 你们呢?有没有这样做呢?那我们今天就聊聊被邀请而赴宴的时候会用到的英语吧。 When people showed up, I would say: “thanks for coming”.Very often, they would say: “You’re welcome”. Now, take a moment to think: was I really thanking them? Did they help me to do something? If I were to say something like “thanks for helping me prepare drinks”,then“You are welcome”would have been fine. But here, it just doesn’t sound right. So what could they have said instead? A great reply would be: “thanks for having me”. We can also say something like “I’m happy to be here”. 假期时我邀请了很多人去我家玩。有人来的时候我通常会说thanks for coming. 很多时候他们会回答:you’re welcome。在这里我真的在为什么谢他们吗?他们帮了我什么忙吗?如果我说的是“谢谢你帮我准备饮料”,那welcome是可以的。但在这里,谢谢只是客气话,用welcome很奇怪。那能怎么回答呢?教你们一个:thanks for having me. 也可以说I'm happy to be here 之类的话。 微信朗读班内容 A: Thanks for coming.
