背景提示

You don't have to agree to everything! Nobody agrees with everything that everybody has to say, but some people are too shy or too afraid to say so. In American and Canadian society, with the emphasis on individualism, expressing some well-founded disagreement at the appropriate time can show others that you can think for yourself.

你不用勉强自己同意所有的事情!也不是说只要有异议就必须说出来,但有些人太害羞了,他们压根就不敢说。在美国和加拿大,他们强调个性,所以在适当的时候提出你的看法,可以证明你并非人云亦云之辈。

重点句型

1. I don't believe you. 我不相信你的话。

2. I don't buy it. 我可不买你的账。

3. Get outta here! 出去!

4. No way! 没门!

5. That can't be! 不可能!

6. No chance! 不可能。

7. Not likely. 不可能。

8. That's impossible. 不可能。

9. I can't believe I'm hearing this! 我不能相信我在听这些!

10. You must be mistaken. 你一定搞错了。

本课学习提示:

If you agree with something, let people know. If you disagree, say so! Carl uses Modern English to tell the repair supervisor what he thinks.

不管你是同意还是不同意,你都得让别人知道!Carl 用现代美语向汽车修理公司表达了自己的看法。

Is it OK or not?

Use these to tell others what you think!

是行还是不行?

用我们教你的去表述你的想法!

文化差异

In the West, most people aren't afraid to say they disagree with something. Some people overdo it, and disagree with almost everything, which can be annoying at times! Don't disagree by habit; make sure your disagreement is well-founded.

在西方,大多数人都敢于提出自己的不同观点,不过有些人做过了头什么都反对。不要习惯性地反对一件事情,一定要有合适的理由。

English Text

What: Refuting what someone says to you

Who: Do you agree with everything?

Where: On the spot!

When: You hear something that you think is wrong

Why: These are more descriptive than a simple no!

A few days later, the repairs supervisor calls with the results of the car checkup. Carl agrees with some of their findings, but thoroughly disagrees with others. The supervisor says some parts will soon stop functioning. Carl tells the supervisor he wants the car repaired enough to allow him to use it as a trade-in for a new car. How many things can go wrong with a car?

Carl: (answering the phone) Carl Mathews.

Supervisor: Good afternoon. This is the supervisor at ABC Auto. I have the results of your car checkup.

Carl: OK. What's the bad news?

Supervisor: Your front-end needs an alignment, your muffler needs to be replaced, and your car definitely needs a good tune-up.

Carl: So far so good, so to speak.

Supervisor: Well, the mechanic found other problems. Your shock absorbers need replacement.

Carl: That can't be! I had new ones put in less than a year ago.

Supervisor: Also, your front disc brakes need resurfacing.

Carl: You must be mistaken. Braking seemed to be fine.

Supervisor: The battery is not fully charging, the catalytic converter is not functioning normally, and the transmission may go in a few thousand miles.

Carl: I can't believe I'm hearing this!

Supervisor: Sorry, sir, but that's what we found.

Carl: OK, OK. I don't buy it all, but anyway, I've just decided that I need a new car. Make a list of the repairs necessary so I can use my car as a trade-in. I'll come in tonight to sign off on it (hangs up the phone, a little angrily)
