职场社交英语 Lesson 28:我能跟你说些私事吗?

SCENE① A 吉娜与玛莉同坐在飞往洛城的班机上

【我能跟你说些私事吗?】

玛莉: 吉娜,我能跟你说些私事吗?

Zina: As long as it doesn't take too long.

语言详解

A: Don't bother buying me a present. I hate birthdays.

不用费心帮我买礼物了。我讨厌生日。

B: Too late. I already bought you one.

来不及了。我已经帮你买了。

【don't bother 别费事,不劳】

don't bother后面可以接四种不同的结构:

1. -ing: Don't bother coming back.

2. 不定词:Don't bother to come back.

3. yourself + -ing: Don't bother yourself coming back.

以上四句都正确,但以(1)及(2)两句较普遍。

A: When is your plane tomorrow? I would like to see you off at the airport.

你明天班机是几时?我想要到机场给你送行。

B: Thanks. But don't bother to come to the airport.

谢了。但请不要麻烦跑一趟机场。

1) ersonal (a.) 私人的

2) upset (a.) 感到不爽的,生气的

3) bother (v.) 费心,麻烦
