Semua orang pasti pernah melakukan kesalahan kepada orang lain, entah sengaja atau tidak sengaja. Karena kesalahan tersebut terkadang hubungan kita dengan orang lain menjadi sedikit terganggu. Mungkin saling marah, jengkel atau bahkan dendam.

  2. What does the girl ask about?
  3. Can the boy show the way?
  4. What does the boy say to ask his apology?

Selanjutnya agar kalian mampu menggunakan ungkapan meminta maaf dengan benar maka sangat penting bagi kalian untuk mempelajari sttuktur kalimat dari ungkapan menghargai kinerja. Perhatikan contoh kalimat berikut.

  3. I am sorry for being rude to you. (Saya minta maaf karena telah bersikap kasar kepadamu.)
  4. I am ashamed of being unfair to you. (Saya malu atas perbuatanku yang tidak adil kepadamu.)

Kalimat pertama terdiri dari frase I am sorry kemudian diikuti for dan coming (V1+ing) dan diikuti late (kata keterangan/ adverb). Kata coming berasal dari kata kerja bentuk pertama ditambah -ing (V1 + ing). Setelah V1+ing boleh diikuti object dan adverb. Jadi pola kalimat pertama ungkapan menghargai kinerja adalah I am sorry + for + (V1+ing) + object + adverb. Contoh ungkapan lain memggunakan pola kalimat ini adalah I am sorry for dropping the glass on the floor (Saya mohon maaf karena menjatuhkan gelas di atas lantai.)

Pada kalimat kedua diketahui bahwa ungkapan menghargai kinerja ini terdiri dari frase I am ashamed of diikuti kata breaking (V1+ing) dan my promise sebagai object. Jadi struktur kalimat kedua adalah I am ashamed of + (V1+ing ) + object + adverb. Contoh kalimat lain yang menggunakan pola kalimat ini adalah I am ashamed of telling a lie to you (Saya malu telah berkata bohong kepadamu).

Pada kalimat ketiga diketahui bahwa ungkapan menghargai kinerja dapat terdiri dari I am sorry diikuti for dan diikuti being dan late (kata sifat/ adjective). Jadi pola kalimat ketiga adalah I am sorry + for + being + adjective. Contoh kalimat lainnya yang menggunakan pola kalimat ini adalah I am sorry for being impatient (Saya minta maaf karena tidak sabar).

Dari kalimat ke empat diketahui bahwa ungkapan menghargai kinerja terdiri dari I am ashamed of diikuti being dan adjective. Contoh kalimat lainnya yang menggunakan struktur kalimat ini adalah I am ashamed of being immature (Saya malu telah bersikap tidak dewasa).
