While talking to a fellow traveller, it became apparent I knew how to say ‘I’m sorry’ in more languages than your average person. My new acquaintance thought it was funny that I’d clearly had to apologise my way around the world and this is the inspiration behind my new feature How to Say… in 10 Languages.
First up is, of course, How to say I am Sorry in 10 Languages.
German Es tut mir leid French Je Suis désolé
Spanish Lo siento Portuguese Sinto muito
Italian Mi dispiace Malay Saya minta maaf
Polish Przepraszam Thai Dee Chun See-a Jai Jing-Jing
Welsh Mae’n ddrwg gennyf Sinhala Mata Sama-vin-nah
