English compliments to get you on anyone good side!/用英語讚美別人博得好感! (中英對照 精華文章)




在一些文化裡,奉承人並不一定到處管用;但在說英語的國家裡,你會發現一句簡單的恭維卻能通行無礙。請看看一些簡單的句子,保證博得他人的好感!


找出正確的方式恭維,實際上並不似想像中的困難。用一些感情、直覺和觀察而你將立刻受到每一個人的歡迎。


最簡單說出讚美是他人最能接受的。例如:當最親近的友人,你可以用不經易的口吻加上恭維像"I like your shoes"或"Nice haircut"。即使在一些社交場合你不能免去這樣的開場白。只要找個有趣話題或者是事情就可以讓人們的焦點集中。

在一些商業場合中,恭維話從不傷到人。假如是你的工作同事或夥伴的專案做得很成功,何不讓他們知道他們的表現很優秀。對你的工作團隊用簡單一句適當形容詞而你的恭維話是全然受用。偶然一句"great job!"、"nice effort"或"good work"在感情維繫將產生意想不到的結果並且保持工作順暢。

有些時你要儘量找出好話來說,三思而後言就不會出糗。例如:假如某人穿著一套極不值得恭維的套裝,不能立即說它不好看。而換個方式像"that dress looks really nice",然後再加些真誠的意見"...but the black pants you wore last week were really, really amazing, you should wear them more often."

最後,提醒你之後恭維讓人聽來悅耳的用語:儘量避免明確及敏感的主題像是體重或體型。即使是好意,這些恭維反而適得其反。你最後所要做的是祝賀某人僅僅發現體型上的預期意外瑕疵而靠著在過去幾個月努力已塑造成適當的體重。

再次說明,焦點放在客套或一些事物上,你最為奉承的話將會很受用。當然,說話時用些真誠永遠幫助你享受自己的恭維!





In some cultures, flattery may not get you anywhere, but in English-speaking countries, you might find that a simple compliment will take you a long ways. It doesn take much, so keep on reading for a few easy and guaranteed ways to get on people good side.


Finding the right compliment actually isn as difficult as it seems. A little sensitivity, intuition and observation and youl be everyone favorite person in no time.


The easiest praise to deliver is object-related. For example, while amongst friends, you can adopt a casual tone and drop compliments such as "I like your shoes" or "Nice haircut". You can fail with one of these and often they can serve as good conversation starters in social situations as well. Just find an interesting object or thing to focus on and then concentrate on the delivery.

In business situations, compliments never hurt either. If one of your colleagues or teammates has done a good job on a project, why not let them know what a great contribution theye made. Simply use a positive adjective with a work-related term and your work compliment is all ready. An occasional "great job!", "nice effort!" or "good work" will work wonders for maintaining productive work relationships.

In cases where you struggle to find something nice to say, think twice before saying something you may regret later. For example, if someone is wearing an extremely unflattering outfit, don tell them how bad it looks right away. Instead, start by saying something like "that dress looks really nice", and then launch into your true opinion "...but the black pants you wore last week were really, really amazing, you should wear them more often."

Lastly, one word of precaution for your future compliment endeavors: try to avoid certain sensitive topics such as weight or physical attributes. Even with the best intentions, these types of compliments might be misinterpreted. The last thing you want to do is congratulate someone on their impending pregnancy only to find out the extra curves are due to a few unwelcome pounds picked up over the past few months.

Again, focus on inanimate objects or things and most likely your flattery will be well received. Of course, a little sincerity in the delivery always helps and may just win you a compliment yourself one of these days!
