Although English is not my first language
I still thought that I knew well enough about basic English,
but it still confuses me sometimes ;(
I have two questions about English here.
If anyone can give me some advise, it will be a big help for me!
My question is...
1)Is it true that saying "Maybe" when you are asked questions doesn't sound very nice and it
may offend some people?
Hmm. Let me think in Japanese.
Maybe = Tabun(casual)/Osoraku(formal)
I guess saying just "Tabun" can sound too casual.
It will sound better if you say "Tabun daijyoubu dayo(Maybe it will be ok)." or "Tabun muri.
Gomen ne(Maybe I can't. Sorry)."
Is it the same in English too?
And another one is...
2)Is it true that "Sure" means only 50%?
So if I am asked "Can you help me?" and say "Sure.",
does it mean I may help them at 50% of the time?
I thought Sure = Of course. Is it wrong?
Your help will improve the quality of my subbing...(Hehe)
Thank you in advance xD
