I’m sorry! I apologise!
Every culture has a way to say ‘I’m sorry’.
In some cultures it is important to say sorry, but you should not explain why you did the bad thing.
In English apologies usually include:
- Saying ‘I’m sorry’
- Explaining the reason why the person did what they did.
Now think about:
- How you say sorry in your culture. Is it different to how we say sorry in Western culture?
- Do you believe Dave’s apology?
- Imagine you are late meeting a friend. You are late because you couldn’t wake up on time. What would you say?
