Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin
Sunday, 27 December 2009
Yesterday I muttered 'à mon avis' from the small amount of French I know; meaning in my opinion. (I must admit to being quite bad at French, so apologies here.) So I was thinking, about how to say 'In My Opinion' in Mandarin.
在我看来 zài wǒ kàn lái
But I know from both the French & English, there are many ways to say this.
selon moi and d'après moi
or in English variations include:
"In my opinion", "In my view", "As I see it", "I believe that", "To my mind" etc.
So on Twitter I posted the Question. So far I have had several responses, it was interesting to see how different they all were.
So here are the suggestions I have had, below with Hanzi and Hanyu Pinyin:
我觉得 wǒ juéde
我认为 wǒ rènwéi
我的观点是 wǒ de guāndiǎn shì
我的看法是 wǒ de kànfǎ shì
对我来说 duì wǒ lái shuō (as far as I'm concerned)
我以为 wǒ yǐwéi I (originally) thought - (but it turns out I was wrong.)
I would love to hear the ways in which you say 'In my opinion' and if there are required situations for each of the above...
