Does your child want to come over to our house for a sleepover?

Yes, he does. There is a plan to go to your home with soccer club members. My son says that your son invites them to your house. I'm afraid you feel troublesome to come to your home altogether. How do you feel it?

自然な表現

Yes, he does. There is a plan to go to your home with soccer club members. My son says that your son invited them to your house. I'm afraid you will feel it is troublesome for you to have them all over. How do you feel about it?

1. use the past simple to express an action that finished in the past
2. use the future simple to express a future action
3. we naturally say something is troublesome, or we use the pattern: 'it is + adjective (troublesome) + for + object + to-infinitive', simply put, it is troublesome for someone to do something
4. we ask someone how they feel ABOUT something
I enjoy having the boys around. They keep my son company, and they also get along with my daughters. Would you like to join us this weekend and see how much fun they have when they meet?

Thank you for your invitation. I'm afraid of infection of coronaviruses. Nowadays, the number of infection has been increasing again. It is true that the declaration of emergency was lifted last month, but we might as well avoid seeing each other in a group. It will better to put off it after the situation comes better. How about it?

自然な表現

Thank you for your invitation. I'm afraid of the infection by coronaviruses. Nowadays, the number of infected people has been increasing again. It is true that the declaration of emergency was lifted last month, but we might as well avoid seeing each other in a group. It will better to put it off until after the situation gets better. How about it?

1. use 'the' to refer to something everyone is familiar with
2. we naturally say infection BY viruses
3. in this context, we are talking about the number of infected people
4. when our object is a pronoun, it is placed between the verb (put) and the particle of the phrasal verb (off)
5. we put something off for a certain time or until a point in the future
6. we naturally say something is or gets better to mean it improves
Okay, that's a good idea. We don't want to risk our children getting infected. We should maintain social distancing. Do you think the virus crisis could be over in a few months?

No, infection of coronaviruses will never end at least in a few months. We need to live with coronaviruses until valid vaccine is developed. It will take years us to use the vaccine, I believe. Although I appreciate your kindness for our children, we need to have our children stay at home.

No, the coronavirus infection will never end at least not in a few months. We need to live with coronaviruses until a valid vaccine is developed. It will take years for us to use the vaccine, I believe. Although I appreciate your kindness to our children, we need to have our children stay at home.

1. as I explained, we naturally say infection by a virus or we can say 'the coronavirus infection' to refer to this specific outbreak
2. use the negative particle 'not' here as you mean that this will not happen in a few months
3. use articles with singular countable nouns
4. it takes time FOR someone to do something
5. we naturally say kindness TO someone, or 'thank you for showing our children kindness'
Okay, I understand. It sounds like we could have a lot of time in this situation. Can we organize an online call for them instead? Maybe they could enjoy that.

Certainly. It seems that they have already online network by themselves. I ask my son to have network with your sun or others and if so, I suggest him to make a meeting with his friends. I have not had an online drinking party yet, it seems to be enjoyable, according to my colleagues who participated an online party.

自然な表現

Certainly. It seems that they have already created an online network by themselves. I will ask my son to share the network with your sun or others and if so, I will suggest that he has a meeting with his friends. I have not had an online drinking party yet, it seems to be enjoyable, according to my colleagues who participated in an online party.

1. we naturally say we create a network in this context
2. 5. use articles with singular countable nouns; use "a/an" when mentioning something for the first time and use THE every other time you mention the same thing
3. 6. use the future simple with WILL to express your immediate intent or willingness to do something
4. we naturally say we share a network in this context, or you can say 'I will ask my son to add your son to their online chat/invite your son to their online chat'
7. we use a that-clause with the present subjunctive after "to suggest", and we naturally say we have a meeting
8. we participate IN something
Okay, that's good. They could have fun doing that. Each child could make a traditional dish to eat during the party. You can also think of other activities. What are your thoughts?

Yeah, it's a good idea for children make a dish for themselves. They will realize how time-consuming to make a dish and, I would be pleased if they appreciate our daily house chores. In addition to cooking a dish, I believe that we let them tell us what subjects they talk about after the party. We can know their concerning.

Yeah, it's a good idea for children to make a dish for themselves. They will realize how time-consuming it is to make a dish and, I would be pleased if they appreciated our daily house chores. In addition to cooking a dish, I believe that we should have them tell us what subjects they talk about after the party. We can know their concerns.

1. we naturally say it's a good idea for someone TO DO something, so we use a to-infinitive verb here
2. we say something is time-consuming, so the correct pattern here is 'to realize + how + adjective + subject + verb', for example, 'I realize how nice you are' or 'I realize how time-consuming making a dish is/how time-consuming it is to make a dish' ('it' is our dummy subject here)
3. we use the second conditional to express a hypothetical situation, so past simple + would
4. use "should" to express what is the best or correct thing to do
5. to let someone do something means to allow them to do it; use "to have someone do something", meaning to give them the responsibility to do it
6. we use a noun phrase as our object, so 'concerns'; 'concerning' is an adjective or a preposition, e.g. The increase in crime in the area is very concerning. If you have any information concerning the incident, please contact the police.
