别用Are you sick问"你是不是生病了"!!

Sick usually means ill or unhealthy, but it can also mean crazy or not mentally healthy -- so there is a possibility that you may be misunderstood.

Sick通常表示生病或不健康,但它也可以表示疯狂或精神有问题——所以你在使用sick这个词时会被别人误解。

甘肃快3If you ask someone Are you sick? it might be understood to mean Are you crazy? Sick is sometimes too direct in tone.

如果你问某人Are you sick?,很可能被人理解为“你疯了吗?”Sick在这么使用时语气显得过于直接。

here are some other ways of asking the same question:

如果你关心别人想询问他是不是生病了,你可以用下面这些表达:

Are you not feeling well?

Do you feel ill?

甘肃快3How are you feeling?

It must be said that if a person is very obviously feeling unwell, you will not be misunderstood if you ask "Are you feeling sick?"

必须指出的是,如果一个人明显是感到不舒服的了,如果你问"Are you feeling sick?",他不会误解你的意思。

甘肃快3Sick is more commonly used when speaking about yourself or someone in the third person. It is never misunderstood in this context.

甘肃快3Sick更常用在以第三人称谈论自己或他人时。在这种情况下,它永远不会被误解。比如,

甘肃快3His mother is very sick.

他的母亲病得很重。

甘肃快3The teacher went home sick.

老师生病回家了

I've been feeling sick all week.

甘肃快3我整个星期都感觉不舒服。

 

不同国家sick的使用也有略微区别

甘肃快3In the UK, sick describes the action of vomiting.

甘肃快3在英国,sick描述的是呕吐的动作。

甘肃快3Americans and Australians would say, in the same situation,:

甘肃快3美国人和澳大利亚人在同样的情况下会说:

‘I’ve vomited every morning this week.’

这个星期我每天早上都呕吐。

This is another example of how English is used differently in English speaking countries.

再举一个不同国家有不同用法的例子。

Americans use ‘sick’ to explain the way they are feeling. For this meaning, British English speakers would say ‘ill’ or ‘unwell’. Australians,>crook’.

美国人用sick来解释他们的感受。在这个意义上,英国人会说ill或unwell来表达。澳大利亚人可能会用“crook”。

Isn’t it confusing!

是不是有点乱呢

Here are 3 examples to help:

甘肃快3下面列出同样意思三个国家的不同表达大家来感受一下

American.

甘肃快3Jacquie has phoned in sick. She has a bad cold.

雅奎打电话来请病假。她得了重感冒。

British.

Jacquie is unwell today. She has a bad cold.

甘肃快3雅奎今天身体不舒服。她得了重感冒。

Australian.

甘肃快3Jacquie is crook. She has a bad cold.
