每年的12月,就是歲末重頭戲,即使天氣冷颼颼,也讓人忍不住期待呢!

剛過完歡樂溫馨的聖誕節,絢麗燦爛的跨年夜就接踵而至,這時候如果想邀請外國朋友一起參與這熱鬧活動,卻不知道英文該怎麼說,或是說了"cross the year"才知道糗大了嗎?

以下幫你整理了跨年必備的相關英文,趕快學起來,驕傲的度過2016、迎接2017吧!!

 

1. 跨年怎麼說?

「跨年」這個詞在英文裡面並沒有直接相對應的詞,此時不能直接說cross the year,會用celebrate New Year's Eve來表達喔!

例句:People from different parts of the world celebrate New Year's Eve in different ways. (來自世界各地的人會用不同的方式跨年。)

 

2. 你要去哪裡跨年?

如果想詢問對方要去哪裡跨年,我們可以這麼說.......

A:Hey, where are you going to celebrate New Year's Eve? (嘿,你要去哪裡跨年呢?)

B:Well, I haven't decided yet. I stayed home last year, but I want to do something different this year. (嗯,我還沒有決定。我去年待在家裡,但是今年我想做點不一樣的事情。)

【跨年夜相關活動清單】

以下貼心提供跨年夜可以參加安排的活動,不知道怎麼回答的就看這裡吧!

attend New Year's Eve celebrations 參加跨年活動

watch the fireworks 看煙火

go to a concert 聽演唱會

listen to live music 聽現場音樂

dance the night away 跳舞跳通霄

go to a party 參加派對

travel abroad 到國外旅行

have a gourmet buffet dinner 吃一頓精緻自助晚餐

 

3. 要不要一起跨年?

如果想邀請朋友一起跨年,這時候就可以這樣問......

A:Hey, it's New Year's Eve. Do you want to celebrate New Year's Eve together? (嘿,跨年夜到了,你想一起跨年嗎?)

B:Sure, let's not stay home like a couch potato this year. (當然,我們今年就別窩在家裡當懶惰蟲了吧!)

【運用why not的句型】

A:Since you haven't decided, why not go out with me? (既然你還沒有決定,要不要和我一起出去跨年呢?)

B:That sounds great! I wasn't sure who to hang out with on that day. (聽起來很棒!我之前還沒找到要一起出去的人。)

【運用how about句型】

A:What do you want to do to celebrate New Year's Eve? (你跨年夜想做什麼呢?)

B:How about having a gourmet dinner, and then watching the fireworks near Taipei 101? (你覺得先吃一頓精緻的晚餐,然後去台北101附近看煙火,這樣如何?)

 

4. 婉拒

當別人邀請你,但你已經有其他計劃了,需要委婉的拒絕時,該怎麼說呢?

除了sorry之外,你還可以這樣說:

A:Hey, it's New Year's Eve. Do you want to celebrate it together? (嘿,跨年夜到了,你想一起跨年嗎?)

B:Too bad, I have been too tired lately. I would rather stay home and be a couch potato this year. (太可惜了,我最近有點太累。我今年寧可在家裡當懶惰蟲就好了。)

A:What a shame! (太可惜了!)
