想学说英语吗?我们的学习美国英语日常对话在这里提供一个很好的练习机会。请点击以下声频链接,收听美国人的对话,并参照英文原文和相关中文解释。今天的对话是正规问候语和邀请

Jenna: Hello, Kojo. How are you doing?

Kojo: I’m doing well. How are you?

Jenna: Great! By the way, my husband and I are going to the theater tonight. Would you and your wife like to join us?

Kojo: I appreciate the invite, but we have other plans tonight. Maybe another time.

词语解释(程度较高的读者也可以选择听对话词语的英文解释

How are you doing? (你情况怎样?)是 “How are you?”(你好吗?)的另一种表达法。

I’m doing well(我情况挺好)是比“I’m good”(我好)略微正式一些的回答,也用作对 “How are you?”或“How are you doing?”的回答。

By the way(顺便说一下):这个短语用在调转话题、准备插说一个与正在谈的事情不直接相关的事情。

I appreciate the invite, but(我感谢受邀请,但是):这是一种有礼貌地回绝邀请的表达方式。有时候也可以给出回绝的原因。例如: “I appreciate the invite, but we have other plans tonight.” (我感谢这个邀请,但我们今晚有其他安排。)也有时候人们不作出解释。例如: “I appreciate the invite, but I can’t.”(我感谢这个邀请,但我无法应邀。)

Maybe another time也许下次吧):在回绝了一个邀请后,可以用这种方式表示来日可以有机会。
