「ついさっきまで寝ていました」って英語でなんて言うの?

子供がオンライン英会話の前に寝てしまい、起こしてからのレッスンの時に。「彼はついさっきまで寝ていました」「起きたばかりなので機嫌が悪いです」と先生に伝えたいです。

「ついさっきまで寝てました」=「さっき起きたばかりです」
He just woke up.
はいかがでしょうか(o^^o)

He's a little grumpy because he just woke up.
さっき起きたばかりなので、少し機嫌がわるいです。


参考になれば嬉しいです。

"He just woke up" this means he has been sleeping and is now awake. (Maybe this child has been awake for 30 minutes or less)

"He woke up a few minutes ago" He has been asleep and a few minutes ago he woke up.

"He's been sleeping until now" The child was asleep up a few minutes before or even at the time of speaking, the child woke up.

"He just woke up"は、さっきまで寝ていたけど今は起きているという事です。(起きて30分以内でしょうか)

"He woke up a few minutes ago"この文は、ずっと寝ていたんだけど、数分前に起きたという表現です。

"He's been sleeping until now" 子供はほんの今まで寝ていた。または、話している最中の今起きた。という意味合いです。

起きたばかりなのでちょっと機嫌が悪いようです。

怒っているというより、機嫌が悪い、というときはangryよりかはgrumpyが使われます!

  • He was sleeping right before this lesson started

  • Sorry, I put him to sleep but he just woke up again.

  • He got back up

"He was sleeping right before this lesson started" is simply to explain to the teacher know that your child was asleep and just woke up now without saying the word "he just woke up now".

Example:

Teacher: Hello!
(child crying)
You: Hi, sorry "he was sleeping right before this lesson started (but he woke up again) "
teacher: oh you put him to sleep but "he got back up" ?
You: Exactly!

Notice the expression "he got back up".
This is a bit more casual but the teacher is using it to confirm what he heard from you.
It would sound unnatural if the teacher repeated everything you said so he rephrased it with " oh he got back up? "
"He was sleeping right before this lesson started"という事でこのレッスンが始まる直前まで寝ていた。
という状況を "he just woke up now"(たった今起きた)という言葉を使わずに説明しています。

例:
Teacher: Hello! 

(child crying)
(子供の泣き声)

You: Hi, sorry "he was sleeping right before this lesson started (but he woke up again) "
(こんにちは。すみません、このレッスン前まで寝ていたのに。
(でも、起きてしまいました))

teacher: oh you put him to sleep but "he got back up" ?
(あぁ、寝かしつけたのに起きちゃったのね)

You: Exactly!
(そうなんです!)

"he got back up"は、カジュアルな表現ですが、生徒さんが言った言葉をまた繰り返さない為、同じ意味合いの違う表現 " oh he got back up? "に言い換えています。

  • 1. My child woke up just before the lesson. I hope we will not be disturbed.

  • 2. If my child interrupts us, I'm sorry!

    play icon

  • 3. I hope my child is quiet during the lesson. He/she just awoke.

1. This is a full description of the situation.
2. You do not mention the child was sleeping. Maybe that's too much information. You just say offer your apologies in advance for any disturbance.
3. You express your hope that the lesson proceeds quietly and offer a brief explanation.
1つ目の文は、そのシュチュエーションを説明しています。子供がレッスンの前に起きたばっかだけど、支障がないといいのですが。このようになります
2つ目の文は、寝ていたという話には触れません。多分不必要な情報でしょう。何か支障が出た際に謝る。というものです。
3つ目の文は、子供が起きたばっかだけど、静かでいてくれることを願っているという願望を表現します。

Native English speakers, in England especially, often refer to their children as 'little ones'. It is a cute and loving way to refer to your children. You can also use it to refer to children that are not your own, but it is most frequently used by parents talking about their own children. It is gender neutral, so it can be used to refer to boys or girls.

By stating that your child has "just woke up", you are explaining that this happened only moments ago; minutes or even seconds prior to the lesson beginning.
 特にイギリスのネイティブスピーカーは、子供のことを'little ones'と言います。とてもかわいらしい表現です。自分の子供でなくても使えますが、自分の子供のことを話す親がよく使う言葉です。男の子、女の子関係なく使うことができます。

"just woke up"ということで、レッスンが始まるほんのちょっと前、数分前、もしくは何秒か前にというニュアンスになります。

  • He was sleeping but has just woken up,

1- In this case, we use the past participle verb 'got' to literally represent the action of waking up and leaving your bed to do something else besides being in bed.
By using 'just' will show this action happened recently.

2-In this case you are being polite and letting the teacher know that in case you may have to attend to your child during the lesson.
1- "get" の過去形の "got" を使って、目が覚めて起き上がりベッドを離れることを表しています。
"just" は、その行為がまだ起きたばかりであることを示します。

2- 丁寧な言い方です。
レッスン中に子どもの世話をしなければならなくなる可能性があるので、これを言っています。

Your lesson is about to start, you have put your child to sleep, but they decide to wake up just as your lessons starts, well, in order to sound natural, you can say one of these two sentences.

For example.
Hello, how are you today?
Good, good. Oh no!
What happened?
Sorry about this but my child has just woken up.
No problem at all, I will be here when you are ready to carry on.
Thank you.

I hope this helps.
Have a great day.
