刚刚听说一件很尴尬的事情,前两天外教和几个中国同事吃饭,结果中国同事竟然跟他说I have no time!可把外教老师吓了一跳,外教赶紧问:天哪,你怎么啦,需不需要帮你打急救电话啊!
原来,中国同事想表达他很忙,没空去,但这句I have no time千万不能乱用,因为它除了“没时间”外,还有“没有多少活着的时间了”的意思。正好那位同事感冒了萎靡不振,结果让外教以为中国同事得了重病,真是尴尬啊!

①I'm tied up all day.
我一整天都很忙。
②I'm occupied at the moment.
我现在没空。
③I was in a hurry, catch you later.

④This is so annoying, I'm in a rush, talk to you later.

⑦Sorry,I'm otherwise engaged.

⑧You see,I'm in the middle of something.

“你有空吗?”可以这样说
我们工作和生活中都经常会问别人是否有空,来看看“你有没有空”用英文怎么说吧~
①Do you have a minute?
你有时间吗?
②Are you av*lable?
你有空吗?
③Can you spare some time?
