    Saying NO without actually saying NO?

    Excellent approach to reject offers/proposals politely without deteriorating your social relationships or finding yourself in conflict with your friends or coworkers.

    Well-designed quiz, however there is an unpardonable mistake in the explanation for item 3:

    “You shouldn’t TO do it, because it’s not worth being told . . .”

    Hope someone can fix it up soon.

    Excellent lesson James

      I learn a lot from yesterdays course. (Thanks to you Ms. Jane) please allow me to share my own take. Should it be? You shouldn’t DO it, even if you can because you’re tolerating her laziness. But if I find out there is a valid “excuse” (e.g. health matters, priorities & so on) and in a decent approach, then I will do it for the sake of maintaining positive workplace.

Say “no” can be more difficult than it seems, even in our own language. This lesson will come in handy.

Thank you James. We often get some situations that saying no. But it’s not easy to not give people bad feeling. When we say “no” whether we speak our mother language or English, it’s important to show respect and honor to friends, boss, or family. You showed us a good example what should we do. Great.
By the way the jacket you wearing is really cool. It so suits you!

I’d a little difficult with the understanding of some words, because James talks in his classes like he talks with your friends. I mean he speaks fast and like in a conversation… Other teachers speak slower, what it’s good, but it doesn’t seems a real conversation.

I get 100% at the quiz, but to be honest I repeated it twice to make sure I get your idea, not because it’s difficult or hard to understand ,no, I heard about this subject many times before.However I was kind of absent-minded ,thinking about lots of things else :( :(

Nej! That’s how Norwegians and Danish people say no.
Ayoko! That’s how Philippine citizens say no.
Njet! Njet! Njet! That’s how my Russian friend says no.

It is very hard for me to say no in a needy and demanding individual in front of me. I learned my lesson and still learning.

Your video is really helpful. I need more strength to say no right away without losing the face for both parties.

Cheers! You are an excellent teacher. I really appreciate your knowledge and sharing it to us all. Thanks,Joy

I think I had some bias that native English speakers generally feel easier to say “no” than us Asians. I do not know… But this lesson taught me how to decline without losing faces and I want to use this phrase if I have a chance.
