Lesson Transcript

In this lesson, we'll cover phrases used for apologizing. Now, as you haven't quite mastered English it's probably very prudent to go over the phrases for apologizing as they just might come in handy.
We'll start with I'm sorry. This can be used for anything that you want to apologize for. But remember to not overuse it, it's a pretty heavy word. Save it for when you feel really bad about something. So once again that's I'm sorry. If you really want to apologize, you can say, I'm really sorry. Once again that's I'm really sorry.
Other ways you can apologize without using the word sorry is by saying My apologies. This is formal, and is often used in business correspondence.
A casual way of apologizing, perhaps to a friend, would be My bad. This is slang so use it only among your friends.
Now, if somebody apologizes to you, what would you say back? If you're really angry, and don't want to forgive them, you can say, You should be. But hopefully most times you will be more understanding and say, No problem. Or you can also say, Don't worry about it. Let's break this one down - Don't worry about it. Both are common, casual and friendly.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- I'm sorry
- I'm really sorry
- My apologies
- My bad
- No problem
- Don't worry about it
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!
