Daily conversation : In the morning

coffee2 Daily Conversation

I try to translate Japanese what I say into English in my head.
The other day, I thought about how these words are expressed in English.

(This conversation is a weekday morning.)

me : Good moning. You’re late today. It isn’t almost the time for school bus?
wife : I don’t thing I had a good sleep because kids kept acting up while I slept
me : So, when your alarm was ringing, he turned it off. Did you want me to wake you up? You seemed tired, so I left it at that.
wife : Ummm… you don’t have to wake me up but I will appreciate if you just tell me that.


最近、自分が話した言葉(日本語)を、英語だとどんな表現になるのか、考えるようにしています。
先日は、これらの会話を、英語でどんな表現になるのかを考えました。

(とある平日の朝の会話)

私:おはよう。今日は遅いね。幼稚園のバスが来る時間ギリギリになるんじゃない?
妻:まだ眠い・・・。寝ている間、子供たちがのしかかってきたせいで、全然寝た気がしない。
私:そういえば、スマホの目覚まし時計が鳴ってた時、息子がアラームを消してたよ。起こした方がよかった? まだ眠そうだったから遠慮したけど。
妻:うーん。声をかけるぐらにしておいて。

→I don’t thing I had a good sleep because kids kept acting up while I slept

me : So, When your smartphone’s alarm was ringing, he turned off it. Should I wake you up?
→your alarm
turns it off
Did you want me to wake you up?
Did I need to wake you up?
Should I have woke you up?

You still looked sleepy, so I left it at that.
