See above.When May can't catch what Tim's saying, May said:
- I beg your pardon. - Fine.
- Pardon me, please. More common would be "Pardon me?" as a question.
- Excuse me. - As a question, this is commonly used. Excuse me?!
- I am sorry, you say again. No. "You say again" is not correct English. "I'm sorry, could you say that again please?"
- I am sorry. - Again, as a question with a rising intonation at the end, this is commonly used. Without it, it's just a statement of apology. It would normally be contracted to "I'm sorry?" in this context.
I saw people normally came with their facial expression to show they can't catch what others said. So, are the above saying clear and polite enough with the saying and facial expression?
