For example, if a person asks them, “Can you help me today?” Many English learners will say, “Sorry. No.” Now, this is not wrong. But it can make the other person feel bad or could be considered rude. So, let's look at some good ways to say no, refuse, or reject something in a very polite way. Here are some sentences that you can use. I am sorry, but…… I would love to, but…. I wish I could, but…. I am sorry, but I can't because….. Thank you, but…. No thank you. .... Let's look at some real world examples so you can see how they are actually used. Would you like to see a movie with me tonight? I am sorry, but I have to work tonight. How about getting some dinner tomorrow? I would love to, but tomorrow is my son's birthday. Can you help me with this project? I wish I could, but I am so busy with my own report. Would you like to come to my party this Saturday? I am sorry, but I can't come because I have to go to my cousin's wedding. Would you like some wine? Thank you, but I don't drink alcohol. Would you like some chicken? No thank you. I am a vegetarian, so I will eat the salad. These answers are longer and give a reason why the person is saying no. They are much more polite. You can use them easily in daily life or in business situations. Start practicing using them today. You can find many more lessons at TalkEnglish.com.
