How to say “Sorry” in 30 languages. Video with text

One of the words that I like to learn before going in a new country is “Sorry”. I don’t want to have to say it, but, if I find myself in a situation in which I have to use it, then I’d like to know the local word (or expression). For instance, in a crowded subway in Paris, I have to confess that I unwillingly slightly stepped on someone’s foot so, of course, the immediate reaction was to tell that person that I regret the situation. And yes, I did it in French (true, I learned French in school). The person was not upset, fortunately.

This is one of the examples in which one might need to say “Sorry” to a local and, saying it in the local language, can sometimes help. It is not mandatory, of course, and yes, as we all travelers discovered, almost anywhere in the world when you say “Sorry” you are understood, but… add a little bit of a local “essence”.

As Romanian, my mother tongues, is not included in the video, I can tell you that if you want to apologize to a Romanian, you should tell him “Îmi pare rău.” And now, the video by InDifferentlanguages.

    This is a cute video. I hope I don’t have to use the word sorry in all of those different languages. I was curious to note that Czech was Pardon. Very interesting.

    A simple sorry is really a good way to let the person you hurt know that you are sincere of being sorry and that you admit that you have done wrong so no matter what language we use, always don’t forget to say sorry and also thanks to other people

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be
    enormously appreciated!

    There are definitely lots of details like that to take into consideration. That is a nice point to deliver up. I offer the thoughts above as normal inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you bring up where an important factor will be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged round issues like that, but I’m certain that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the influence of just a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
