如何用英语表达无奈


1. Beyond

Beyond这个词传递着一种高高在上的超越感,但它的另一层含义是要表达“没可能”和“搞不定”。

例:

The situation is beyond our control.
我们无力掌控这种局面。

I think it's beyond hope.
我看这事儿没戏了。

2. One of those things

就是那些事儿,你还不知道吗?这里指的是某些倒霉的遭遇,讲话者其实想说这种倒霉事儿真没辙,大部分人也都经历过。

例:

I missed the train and had to take a later one. It was just one of those things, I guess.
我错过了那趟火车,还得等下一趟。这种事真没办法。

3. What's done is done

已经做了的事没法改变了,木已成舟,覆水难收,过去的就让它过去吧!

例:

It's too late to change it now. What's done is done.
现在再改变已经来不及了,木已成舟。

4. I'm afraid....

这个固定说法一般用来礼貌地告诉他人一些不愉快的事情,顺便表示同情。

例:

-Bad news?
坏消息?

-I'm afraid so.
恐怕是。

5. Have no other choice

没有其他选择了。这个说法有种不得不这样做的意味,说明这件事并非大家期望的。

例:They have left us with no other choice than to take formal action.
他们逼得我们别无选择,只有采取正式行动。
