let’s practice the pronunciation of congratulations
让我们来练习一下congratulations的发音
it’s a beautiful word
它是个很美的单词
but it can be difficult to pronounce
但它很难发音
so there are two key points that we need to focus on
所以我们需要注意以下两点
first in American English we don’t pronounce the T
首先在美式英语中我们不会对“T”发音
we do not say kind of grat tu lations
我们不会说congra tu lations
we say congratulations congratulations
我们说congratulations congratulations
second, pay attention to the stress congratulations congratulations
第二点 注意重音 congra~tulations
so it’s important to get the stress right
所以正确地找到重音很重要
on that second syllable we really stress
第二个音节我们要重读
and then we have a secondary stress on the lesions
然后在lations还有一个次级重音
congratulations
congra~tula~tions
now we can also shorten this word
现在我们可以把这个词简化
and many people simply say
很多人会简单地说成
congrats Congrats
Congrats Con~grats
but be aware that this is slightly more casual
但要注意的是 这种说法通常用在非正式场合
for use with family or friends
例如和家人朋友讲话时
if you want to be more formal
如果你想显得更正式
more polite or respectful say the completes word
更礼貌或更尊重 那就说完整的词
alternatives to saying congratulations
除了说congratulations
include I’m so happy for you
你还可以说” I’m so happy for you!”
or that’s wonderful or well done
或者”That’s wonderful!” 还有”Well done.”
now I’ve seen in some other English lessons
我在其他的英语课程里看到过
suggestions to use alternatives
一些这样的替换建议
like nice job or nice or good job
比如”Nice job!”或者”Nice!”或者”Good job!”
and these could be interpreted
如果你的语气不正确
as sarcasm if your tone is not right
这些说法可能会被理解为讽刺
and they’re a bit casual so I highly suggest
而且听起来太口语化了 所以我强烈建议
that you stick to the suggestions mentions here
你依然使用接下来提到的这些说法
well done I’m so happy for you that’s wonderful
“Well done.” ” I’m so happy for you!” ” That’s wonderful!”
or simply the classic congratulations
或者简单地用经典的”Congratulations!”
I would say congrats for watching this lesson but I can’t
我想说恭喜你们观看了这堂课 但我不能
because that’s not really a huge lifetime achievement
因为这真的不是个很大的人生成就
however I am sure that you do have some achievements
然而我确定你肯定有一些成就
and I would love
我很愿意
