関係ない

August 9, 2017

こんにちは〜
仙台のプライベート英会話講師&翻訳者デイブです。

今日の話題は: One-point English

皆さんは「関係ない」と英語で何と言うか知っていますか?直接訳すと「No relation」又は「No connection」になってしまうけど、その表現は場合によって結構不自然です。今日紹介したい表現は「It doesn't matter.」相手の意見を聞いて、「どうでもいい」、「関係ない」、「いいから」、等と考えている時に「It doesn't matter」を使ってもいいです。

例文:

A: It's raining outside. Should I take my umbrella?
B: It doesn't matter. We're going to drive there.

C: I forgot to study for the test!
D: It doesn't matter. Class was canceled.

E: I didn't have any time to exchange money for the trip.
F: It doesn't matter. You can use a card everywhere in America.

That's it!
