“Are you OK?”
Хорошо знакомая всем фраза "Are you OK?"
А вы уверены, что употребляете ее правильно и в нужной ситуации?
In America, this is a phrase used to ask someone who might have been harmed mentally or physically. It’s not a phrase used for requests or asking if someone understands a situation or question.
For example, if you invite your American friend to a movie and say, “Let’s go to a movie at 7. Are you OK?” Your friend might be surprised, “Huh, yea, I’m good. Why?” It’s because they think that you believe there is a problem.
Instead, try, “Let’s go to a movie at 7. Does that sound OK?” or “Does that sound good?”
A correct way to use “are you OK”: You see that your friend is very sad. Maybe crying. So, you will ask her, “Are you OK? What’s the matter?”
Always feel Ok!
