Polite ways to respond when someone says : ''I feel tired/I am tired.'' Remember : Telling someone they look tired says they look awful and it will make them irritated with you or it will hurt their feelings - it is impolite. Tip : If they look tired, don't say anything...Use the following tips : If someone sys that they are exhausted/tired, say something agreeable, like : I so understand how you feel - we have all been there. Better/preferred responses : “Have you been sleeping alright?” , “You’re such a dedicated worker, that is a great trait.” , “I don’t know how you juggle so many things, I would never be able to !” , “Is there anything I can do to help?” , ‘’Have you been taking breaks between work?’’ Or ‘’Have you thought about maybe taking a day off - it may help you feel a bit better.’’ Thank you so much for being such amazing students - learning polite language is essential especially when at a higher language level - Intermediate through to Advanced level ! A kind reminder : Be good to each other.
