英文讲一半词穷怎幺办?教你5招「神救援」道地口说

作者:Sylvia Chu

讲英文时最尴尬的情况莫过于结巴或不知该怎幺接下去,小编也遇过这样的情况,那时脑袋紧张的一片空白,除了嗯嗯嗯,还真的不知道要说什幺…

因此,小编今天想分享一些实用的填充字(filler words),让你在突然接不下去时可以用这些语句喘口气:

1. 想要描述人事物时,可以说…

1. Sort of…
2. Kind of…
3. Like…

对话练习:
A: Where do you want to go?
(你想去哪里?)
B: It’s kind of busy…a busy place in Taipei.
(我想去的是…它在台北,是个热闹的地方。)

2. 表达另一种想法时,可以说…

1. Actually…
2. As a matter of fact…
3. To be honest…
4. To be frank with you…
5. In fact…
6. The fact of the matter is…

对话练习:
A: So do you want to go to the airport?
(所以,你是想要去机场吗?)
B1: Actually, no! The place I want to go is in the center of Taipei.
( 不,我想要去的地方在台北市中心。)
B2: As a matter of fact, no, I don’t want to go to the airport.
(不是的,我不想要去机场。)
B3: To be honest, I want to go to the place with the tallest building in Taipei.
(我想去的地方有台北最高的大楼。)
B4: In fact, I really want to go to the place with the largest theater in Taipei.
(我想要去的地方有台北最大的电影院。)
B5: The fact of the matter is I’m not going to the airport now.
(我没有要去机场!)

3. 一时想不起来该如何说时,可以说…「该怎幺说呢?」

1. How shall I put it?
2. What’s the word I’m looking for?
3. How can I explain this?

对话练习:
A: Do you agree with John’s opinion?
( 你同意强尼的意见吗?)
B1: Well, how shall I put it? It’s really hard to say whether we should agree with him or not.
(该怎幺说呢?我们真的很难说是同意他的意见还是不同意。)

4. 表达自己的感受或建议时,可以说…

1. What’s the best way to put this? (put 在这里就是say的意思)
例句:What’s the best way to put this? You are so impolite!
(我想要说的是,你真的很没礼貌!)
2. What I’m trying to say is…
例句:What I’m trying to say is I can’t wait to see your show tonight.
( 我想要说的是我等不及要看你今晚的演出。)
3. Now let me put it this way…
例句:Let me put it this way. All you need to do now is to lay a solid foundation in English, acquire a large range of knowledge, and grasp every chance to train your abilities.
( 这幺说吧,我们现在所需要做的就是打下扎实的英语基础,扩大知识面,并且抓住每一次机会来锻炼自己的能力。)

5. 想要阻止对方继续说话时,可以说…

1. look here, (name)….
例句:Look here, Steely , old man, I’m very sorry, but I’m afraid we won’t be able to accommodate you any longer.
( 看着,斯蒂利,老伙计。真抱歉,恐怕我们不能再留你在家中住了。)
2. Right then, (name)…
例句:Right then, Andrew, I know your idea is great, but we can’t accept it.
(好了,安卓,我知道你的想法很好,但我们无法接受。)
