ID: 4181 Upper Intermediate
As the title suggests, these phrases have “varying degrees of sorry”. A useful lesson to learn when to use which one! 道歉也是有不同程度的：是轻微的碰撞，无意的冒犯还是严重的不满呢？在不同场合里，我们表达歉意的方式和语言可能非常不同。听完这一课，你或许会思考，当一个人在表达歉意的时候，他究竟想说些什么呢？ HSK lvl 4 实在 抱歉 不过 道歉 HSK lvl 5 不好意思 真实 HSK lvl 6 归根到底 明明 拖延 自主 憋
