渥茲華英語的優秀外師群之一 – Mike老師,最近剛休完年假從美國回來,感性的Mike老師要教你:跟多年未見的老朋友重聚,如何見面不尷尬?快來跟Mike老師學習,用這句英文開場白、幫友情加溫吧!


最近我趁著休假回美國一趟,因為我住在台灣四年了,所以利用難得的機會,跟已經好久不見的家人還有朋友聚一聚。能和大家碰面感覺真不錯!有些朋友似乎改變很多,感覺好像十年沒見了,有些朋友就沒什麼變化,好像昨天才見過。

I recently took a trip back to the USA. While there, I had the opportunity to meet with family and friends that I hadn’t seen since I moved to Taiwan four years ago. It was so nice to see everyone. Some friends seemed to have changed a lot, and I felt like I hadn’t seen them in a decade. Some friends hadn’t changed at all, and I felt like I had just seen them the day before.

其中有一個朋友叫Dewayne,我本來沒有打算跟他見面,畢竟我這四年都沒跟他說到話,我們也不算好哥兒們,加上這些年過去,應該可以說是形同陌路了吧!所以剛碰面時,我們還很客套的打招呼問好,不過,很快地感覺就回來了!我知道我們仍是朋友,而且永遠都是。

But there was one friend, Dewayne, that I wasn’t expecting to see at all. I hadn’t spoken to him in four years. We hadn’t been the closest of friends, and after that much time, I kind of just assumed that we weren’t friends anymore. We met with the standard greetings that you would use with an old friend, and everything was very civil. But after talking with him for a few minutes, it was clear that we were still friends, and we always would be.

這個經驗讓我意識到:朋友並不會因為暫時失聯而斷線,也不會因為聊天內容多寡、或者能否保持聯繫分享近況而絕交,朋友就是朋友啊!如果你像我一樣經過四年沒消沒息,再見面時又能很快重拾友情,那麼你會知道:這朋友會是你永遠的朋友!

This experience made me realize that it doesn’t matter if you lose touch with a friend. It doesn’t matter how much or how little you talk, and it doesn’t matter how much or how little you know about what’s happening in each other’s lives. A friend is a friend. And, if after four years of not speaking, that person still feels like your friend, then you’ll know that they truly are.


現在Teacher Mike要教大家:當你跟許久不見的老朋友重聚時,第一句話應該怎麼說?

Here are some questions you can ask when you see your old friend again for the first time after many years:

  1. How have you been?

  2. What have you been up to lately?

  3. What’s new?

  4. How’s life?

  5. How has life been treating you?

  6. How are things?

  7. Have you gotten up to anything interesting?


見到半生不熟的朋友,又該如何打招呼呢?

Here are some things you can say when you first meet, or after you’ve been talking for a few minutes:

  1. Long time no see.

  2. It’s been awhile.

  3. It’s so great to see you!

  4. It feels like we never missed a beat.

  5. I can’t believe it’s been four years.

  6. Remember that time we…


歡樂的時光總是過得特別快,離情依依時,你可以這樣說:

And here are some things you can say when the time comes to say goodbye to your old friend:

  1. Good to see you.

  2. Keep in touch!

  3. Don’t be a stranger.

  4. I hope it’s not another four years.

  5. It’s been real.

  6. It’s been great catching up.

  7. Until next time.

  8. You’ve got my number.

  9. You’re welcome to visit anytime.
