how to say in english?

Postby lovegators » Mon 05.18.2009 1:00 am

Please tell me how to say the following sentense in english
あなたオバマ大統領(President Obama)に似てるって言われたことはないですか?
Have you ever had the chance to be said you are look like President Obama?
Is this OK?
Are there any more simple ways?

Has anyone ever told you that you look like President Obama?

英語は日本語ほど受け身形を使わないので、"you are said" または "you are told" という表現よりは "people tell you" の方が自然です。例えば次ぎの様な文:

ちょっと変わってるとよく言われます。
People often say I'm a little strange.

I don't care what anyone says about you Becki-san, I reckon you are all right :D
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there
