“Are you OK?”

“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! 

Изучая английский по скайпу со школой English-up по крайней мере в вопросе изучения английского вы всегда будете ОК! :)
