For example: Excuse me sir, you dropped your wallet. Excuse me, do you know what time it is? 4. I’m sorry. Use this phrase to apologize, whether for something big or small. Use “for” to give more detail. For example: I’m sorry for being so late. I’m sorry for the mess. I wasn’t expecting anyone today. You can use “really” to show you’re very sorry for something: I’m really sorry I didn’t invite you to the party. 5. What do you think?

If you suggest an idea or plan, use this phrase to find out what others think. We could have dinner at 6, and then go to a movie. How does that sound? Let’s hire a band to play music, and Brent can photograph the event. How does that sound? 7. That sounds great. If you like an idea, you can respond to #6 with this phrase. “Great” can be replaced with any synonym, such as “awesome,” “perfect,” “excellent” or “fantastic.” A: My mom is baking cookies this afternoon. We could go to my house and eat some. How does that sound? B: That sounds fantastic! 8. (Oh) never mind. Let’s say someone doesn’t understand an idea you’re trying to explain. If you’ve explained it over and over and want to stop, just say “oh, never mind.” You can now talk about something else! You can also use “never mind” to mean “it doesn’t matter” or “just forget it.” In these situations, say it with a smile and positive tone, though. Otherwise, when you say this phrase slowly with a falling low tone, it can mean you’re bothered or upset. A: Are you going to the grocery store today? B: No, I’m not. But why—do you need something? A: Oh, never mind. It’s okay, I’ll go tomorrow.
