褒め上手ですねって英語でなんて言うの?

英会話中に先生から「英語上手くしゃべれているじゃないの!」って褒められたけど、どう考えてもお世辞だった時に相手に謙遜の意味も込めてこう伝えたいです。

  • I'm flattered.

  • That's very kind of you.

  • It's nice of you to say that.

紹介する3つのフレーズは、相手の言葉に対する感謝を表します。必ずしもその人が言ったことに対して同意しているわけではないので、謙遜するニュアンスも含まれるのではないかと思います。

I'm flattered.  「褒められて(お世辞でも)嬉しいです。」
That's very kind of you. 「ご親切にどうも。」
It's nice of you to say that. 「そう言って頂けて嬉しいです。」

これらのフレーズは頻繁に見聞きしますので、覚えておくと便利ですよ!
あとは自信を持って英会話の練習されてくださいね。

  • You’re good with your words.

  • You have a way with words.

もし謙遜の意味も込めて伝えたいのであれば、このフレーズがぴったりです。

You’re good with your words.
言葉がが得意です。
このフレーズは日本語に相当すると思います。

A: You’re awesome!
B: Haha. You’re good with your words.


You have a way with words.
このフレーズは相手は褒めが上手くて好きになるというニュアンスが強いです。

A: What do you like about me?
B: Well, you have a way with words.
英訳例
  • Thank you for praising me, you're a very good teacher!

  • That is very kind. Thank you.

'Thank you for praising me, you're a very good teacher!' This sentence explains that you are grateful to receive the compliment and that you think the teacher is good at their job.

'That is very kind. Thank you.' explains that you feel good about their kindness, and you thank them for it.

  • Nice of you to say so.

  • Kind of you to say so.

  • I appreciate your compliment.

Be careful at a moment like this because, if you tell your teacher that she or he is very good at complimenting people, it may sound like you think the teacher is one of those people who always talk sweetly, even if perhaps they are not sincere. It's better to say that you are happy to receive a compliment from the teacher.

  • That's so kind of you!

  • Thank you for the compliment!

  • You're great at giving compliments! Thank you!

"That's so kind of you!"

This is a great way to let your teacher know that you are thankful for a compliment that they have given you. This is an informal sentence, but you can always use it in your lessons. Keep in mind that you can be formal or informal with your teacher. It's your choice! :)

Example:
Teacher: "You're doing great with your pronunciation today!"
You: "That's so kind of you!"


"Thank you for the compliment!"

This is a slightly more formal way to express to your teacher that you are grateful for a compliment your teacher has given you.

Example:
Teacher: I'm glad to see you're improving with translation practice!"
You: "Thank you for the compliment! "


"You're great at giving compliments! Thank you!"

This is a great way to express to your teacher that you feel that teacher is good at making and giving compliments, and that you are thankful for the compliment. It is polite, of course, but informal.

Example:
Teacher: "I'm so impressed with your listening skills today!"
You: "You're great at giving compliments! Thank you!"

英訳例
  • You have a way with words

  • You have the 'gift of the gab'

  • Thank you, you flatter me!

'Way with words' is an idiom that means to be very good at speaking and structuring sentences, and knowing when to say the right things.

'Gift of the gab' is a UK phrase that means to be articulate and say the right things to people, at the right time, which makes them happy. 'Gab' means to talk.

The last example explains that you really like the compliment you have been given, and you are thanking the teacher for saying such things to you.
