Point 20 ”Let me get back to you.” 初級ビジネス英会話

初級者向けビジネス英会話 Bizmates for beginners 第20弾は、”Let me get back to you.” です。

その場ですぐには回答できないシチュエーションってありますよね。

例えば、同僚から
“Can you join our meeting next week?” 「来週のミーティングに参加できますか?」
と言われた際に「(今は分からないので)あとで伝えるようます。」と伝えたい場合あなたならどう言いますか?

あまり英語に慣れてない人の場合、

“I don’t know. I tell you later.”
といった言い方が思い浮かんだかもしれません。

“I will tell you later.” と言うべきで文法的におかしい点もそうなのですが、
そもそもナチュラルな答え方ではありません。

こういう場面では、

“Let me get back to you.”
と言うようにしましょう。

ぜひ覚えておいてください!

And today's phrase, yeah it's a little long.
It's let me get back to you.

Let me get back to you. What does this mean?
OK but first, let's do our test.

I just took the TOEIC. OK 2-hour test.
And I say, yeah I just took the TOEIC. Wooh...

You say...

Did you get it? How did it go?
Yeah, it was so-so. Not so difficult. Like this, OK?

All right. And today's phrase let me get back to you.
OK. Here's what I usually hear OK.

So imagine, Taro and I, we're co-workers.
We work for the same company.

And I say to Taro, yeah Taro,
can you join our meeting next week?

Yes or no. Yes? No? Can you join our meeting?
And Taro doesn't know.

Yeah, I have to check my schedule, yeah.
So he says, yeah I I don't know. I tell you later.

And I say, OK no problem. Tell me later. Hmmm.
Yeah it's OK, I don't know. I'll tell you later.

It's a little bit strange, the grammar is a little strange.
I I will tell you later is better. But ah, it's a little strong.

A more natural way is this one. OK.
So if I say, yeah Taro, can you join our meeting next week?

Yes? No?
And Taro says, yeah. Let me get back to you.

Oh, it's very nice. It means yeah, please wait.
I don't know my schedule now. So I will tell you later.

But it's very natural. Let me get back to you. OK.
So let's look at pronunciation.

It's not let me, but it's leme, leme.
Leme ge back to you, taya.

Leme ge back taya. Leme ge back taya.
You try.

One more time.
Leme ge back taya.

OK so let's try it with my question.
Can you join our meeting next week?

Ah OK OK. Yeah, just tell me later.
Good.

OK so let's do our homework now.
For homework, I will ask you,

can you join our meeting next week?
And you just say, let me get back to you. OK?

All right. We'll see you in the next lesson.
Thank you.
