  • Hello again, YouTube! Welcome back to EWA English!

  • My name is Adrian Niro.

  • And today we're going to learn how to say "I'm sorry" in English.

  • Hopefully you don't have to say "sorry" very often.

  • But unfortunately for me, as a Canadian, I say "sorry" a lot.

  • Cause I'm Canadian, a Canadian say "sorry" all the time, yeah.

  • So just very simply, if you need to say "sorry", just say, "Sorry".

  • Sorry.

  • "I'm sorry".

  • I'm sorry.

  • "Sorry".

  • Again, very sorry.

  • If you're not on time, you can always say, "I'm sorry, I'm late".

  • Sorry, I'm late. Sorry, I'm late my dock and my chick had a fight.

  • It was ugly.

  • In more serious situations you might have to say,

  • "I'm sorry about what happened".

  • Just want to tell you that I'm sorry about what happened tonight.

  • And "what happened" can mean anything.

  • Even if you don't remember what happened, all you have to say is,

  • "I'm sorry about what happened".

  • If you find yourself on the metro and you step on someone's foot,

  • you might say, "Excuse me".

  • Excuse me, excuse me.

  • If you need to get someone's attention because you wanna ask for directions,

  • you might have to say, "Excuse me, where's the tower entrance, please?"

  • Excuse me, excuse me.

  • If you pass gas, that is your burp or the other one you fart.

  • It's generally polite to say "excuse me".

  • Oh, excuse me.

  • If you're in a rush, and everybody around you is walking way too slow,

  • you might say, "Excuse me, excuse me".

  • "Excuse me!"

  • "Arg, excuse me!"

  • Excuse me, excuse me!

  • In order to sound really sincere you might say this "I apologize".

  • I apologize.

  • "Was that offensive? I apologize."

  • Karla, I apologize, I am a horse's ass.

  • When someone is apologizing to you, you can either say,

  • "Apology accepted".

  • Apology accepted.

  • You can show that you're not very sincere by your facial expressions.

  • Apology accepted.

  • When you want to apologize in a really desperate way,

  • a popular phrase would be "Please, forgive me".

  • - What? - Please, John, forgive me!

  • Please, please, forgive me!

  • Please, forgive me, and see you around.

  • A casual way to accept someone's apology would be to say "nevermind"

  • Nevermind.

  • Nevermind.

  • If someone is very insistent with their apology.

  • Rach, I am so sorry... I am so so sorry.

  • And you want to forgive them in a very casual way.

  • You can simply say, "Don't worry".

  • Don't worry.

  • Don't worry.

  • Don't worry.

  • Ah, don't worry.

  • Don't worry.

  • Ah, don't worry, it's only my life you ruined.

  • Don't worry.

  • Something a little more formal would be "You don't have to apologize".

  • That's something you might say to your boss, because

  • he doesn't have to apologize anyway.

  • And that's when he would say, "I wasn't apologizing".

  • That does it for another episode of EWA Learn English.
