    Hi all,

    I know the verb "apologize", but it would be right to say: "give an apology" for "dar una disculpa"?

    I would like to apologize for... : I would like to give you my deepest apology for... ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Se dice: "Make my/his/our/their apologies"
    Otro verbo es "offer". I would like to offer an apology/my apologies

    Ok, so "I would like to make/offer you my deepest apology" ;)

    Thanks for your reply, aztlaniano.

    I would like to make my apologies.
    I would like to offer you an apology.
    Y se dice
    I think I owe you an apology.

    Prefiero 'offer you my/an apology'. No se diría 'give you an apology'

    I'd also rather say: "offer you my apology,".

    Thank you very much indeed to everyone.
