  • It wasn't how I imagined.

  • The real thing was totally different.

  • In reality, it was totally different.

When you experience something in reality which is different from what you expected, you can say:
It wasn't how I imagined.
If something was not how you imagined it implies that the reality, or the real situation was very different from the idea you had in your head.

You can also say:
The real thing was totally different.
'The real thing' can refer to an event, a situation or an object. It means reality in this sense.
Totally different - Completely different.

You can also say:
In reality, it was totally different.
This has the same meaning as above but you use the word reality instead.

I hope that helps!
予想していたこととは違うことを現実で経験したとき、こう言うことができます。
It wasn't how I imagined.
こう言うことで、現実や本当の状況は頭で思い描いていた想像と全然違ったということを意味します。

また、こう言うこともできます。
The real thing was totally different.
the real thing は出来事、状況、またはモノのことを指します。この場合「現実」ということです。
totally different - まったく違う

こんな言い方もできます。
In reality, it was totally different.
これも上記のものと同じ意味ですが、reality(現実)という単語を使っています。

参考になればうれしいです!

  • What I thought was not real.

    play icon

  • My thinking was different to the reality.

"What I thought, was not real."
This explains that what you were thinking was not the reality.

"My thinking was different to the reality." This means that your thinking and the reality was not the same.
What I thought, was not real.考えていたことが現実ではなかったということを言います。
My thinking was different to the reality.これは、考えていたことと現実が同じではなかったということを意味します。

  • I was surprised, it was not what I pictured!

    play icon

  • I was amazed, it was totally different to what I thought!

    play icon

Things are sometimes different as to how you "pictured", "thought" or "imagined" it, so, when we see the real or actual thing, we are surprised or amazed.

"I was surprised, it was not what I pictured!"
"I was amazed, it was totally different to what I thought!"

"Pictured" and "thought" is the image that we have of something in our mind.

事柄が時々「描写」や「思想」や「想像」したことと少しことなります。
本当の事実と異なるとき、驚いたり驚愕したりします。

I was surprised, it was not what I pictured!
驚いた。想像したことと違った。
I was amazed, it was totally different to what I thought!
驚いた。全く思っていたことと違った。

「Pictured」や「thought」とは頭の中に何かをイメージすることです。

  • The reality was different.

  • Realistically though,

    play icon

そのままです。現実は違っていた、という日本語をそのまま英語訳するとこうなりますし、とてもシンプルなのでよく使います。

日本語で言うと「現実的にでもさぁ」くらいの前置きになります。副詞を上手に使いこなすことが、上のレベルに上がるステップだとざきやまは思います。この副詞句のあと、カンマで切ってから現実と違った話を続ければ完璧です。

  • It was different from what I expected.

    play icon

  • It was different from what I thought.

    play icon

私が期待していたこと(つまり、この場合は自分自身が想像していた事柄)とは違っていたという意味です。
Expectedの原形でかつ現在形であるExpectは期待という意味の他に予想という意味もあります。
(ex. The expected arrival time is 12:30pm. 予想到着時間は午後12時半です)
「自分が思っていたよりも違った。」という意味になります。
Thinkの過去形である、thoughtはこの場合、考えていたという意味と意見という名詞としても解釈すること()も可能です。また、思想という名詞の意味も一般的に使われます。

  • This is not how pictured everything.

    play icon

  • How I imagined it and what happened were two different things.

    play icon

Sometimes in life things happen in a way we did expect it to.
Instead o saying "what I thought " a better term will be "how I imagined".

This is not how pictured everything.
- This means that you imagine h it will be but it was not the same when it happened.
予想通りに何かが起こることがあります。
この場合、what I thoughtよりも、how I imaginedのほが言葉が通ります。
This is not how pictured everything
これは、自分が自分の予想していたのと、違う場合に言うフレーズです。

  • It wasn't what I thought it would be

    play icon

  • My expectations didn't match reality.

(something) wasn't what I thought it would be - you can use this to mean something didn't match what you were picturing it to be

A. Did you see the newest Avengers movie?
B. Yeah, but it wasn't what I thought it would be.
A. What do you mean?
B. I always expect Marvel movies to be funny, but this one didn't make me laugh so much.
"(something) wasn't what I thought it would be"
((何かが)思っていたものと違った)
-この表現を使って想像していたものと違った、と言う事が出来ます。

【例文】
A. Did you see the newest Avengers movie?
(最新のアベンジャーズの映画見た?)
B. Yeah, but it wasn't what I thought it would be.
(うん。でも思っていたのと違った)
A. What do you mean?
(どういう意味?)
B. I always expect Marvel movies to be funny, but this one didn't make me laugh so much.

  • It wasn't what I expected.

    play icon

  • It wasn't what I imagined.

    play icon

Both of these sentences can be used interchangeably and have the same meaning. The main difference being the usage of verb, "expected," and, "imagined," which in this describe how you were thinking a situation would unfold.
どちらも同じように使うことができます。主な違いは動詞"expected"(期待していた)と"imagined"(想像していた)で、その状況の展開にどう思っていたかを表す言葉です。
