第十课:   为人指路
Lesson 10:  Giving Directions (continued)

各位听众朋友好。欢迎您收听“旅游业英语”,我是澳洲广播电台中文部节目主持人马健媛。 在第九课中,我们学习了如何为客人指路、如何提出建议以及如何向客人解释某一行动需要多少时间。 在这一课中我们要遇到蒙纳女士、她的父亲杰克以及他们所乘坐的计程车司机乔。我们要重温有关指路的句型,学习一些新的对话及询问对方从何处来之类的句型。另外,我们还要学习如何向客人表达他应付款项的数额。

在我们继续学习“为人指路”的对话之前,先让我们一起来复习一下这段对话的第一部份。
Leo:  Good morning, Ms White, Mr Webber.
Jack:  Good morning, Leo.
Mona:  Hi Leo. Is there a major shopping centre nearby?
Leo: The Starlight Shopping Centre has over a hundred shops. I’m sure you’ll find what you want there.
Mona: And how do we get there?
Leo: Well, turn right outside the hotel, and left at the traffic lights. Go straight up the street, cross at the next set of lights and turn right at the pink tower…
Mona: Oh dear, that’s too hard to remember.
Leo: Well then, what about a taxi? You can get one just outside the hotel.
Jack: I don’t mind walking, Mona… We turn right outside the hotel, Leo?
Leo:  Yes, that’s right. Then left at the traffic lights.
Jack: Turn left?  Leo: That’s right. Then walk straight up the street (and…)
Mona:  How long does it take to walk there?
Leo: It takes about 10 minutes.
Mona: Then let’s get a cab, Dad. Thanks anyway, Leo.
Leo: My pleasure.

好,我们继续学习第十课“为人指路”,请听录音及中文翻译
乔:   请问去哪里?
Joe: Where to?
蒙纳:   你讲英语吗?
Mona:  Do you speak English?
乔:   我只讲一点点。
Joe:  Just a little.
蒙纳:   请去星光购物中心,它在交通灯的左边。
Mona:  Starlight Shopping Centre please. It’s left at the traffic lights.
乔:   不用担心,我认识路的。你们是哪个国家来的?
Joe: Don’t worry, I know the way. Where do you come from?
杰克:   澳大利亚。
Jack: Australia.
乔:   噢。。。你们在本地停留多久呢?
Joe: Aaah! How long are you here for?
杰克:   三个星期。
Jack: Three weeks.
乔:   三个星期都留在城里吗?
Joe: Three weeks in the city?
杰克:   不,我们星期六就去北方。
Jack: No, we’re going north on Saturday.

请注意听乔是如何询问他的乘客要去什么地方的
Joe: Where to?
Where to? 请问去哪里?这是一种在英语里已经被广泛接受了的短句形式,完整的句型应该是 Where are you going to? 请听老师的示范。
Where to?
Where to?

当我们想要问对方来自什么地方或者国家时,我们可以使用乔说的下面这个句型。他是这样说的:你们是哪个国家来的?
Joe: Where do you come from?
这个句型的简略说法是:Where are you from? 请跟着老师一起练习。
Where do you come from?
Where do you come from?
Where are you from?
Where are you from?

对话过程中,计程车司机乔希望了解他的乘客要在本地停留多久?
乔:  你们在本地停留多久呢?
Joe:  How long are you here for?
杰克:   三个星期。
Jack: Three weeks.

同样的问题,乔还可以这样提问 :How long are you staying?
你们在本地停留多久呢?请听老师的示范并跟着重复。
How long are you here for?
How long are you here for?
How long are you staying?
How long are you staying?

请完整地听一遍这部份对话,并请在计程车司机乔的讲话之后跟着重复。
Joe: Where to?
Mona: Do you speak English?
Joe:  Just a little.
Mona:  Starlight Shopping Centre, please. It’s left at the traffic lights.
Joe: Don’t worry,…
Joe: I know the way.
Joe: Where do you come from?
Jack: Australia.
Joe:  How long are you here for?
Jack: Three weeks.
Joe: Three weeks in the city?
Jack: No, we’re going north on Saturday.

第十课:   为人指路
Lesson 10:  Giving Directions

Joe:  Well, here we are. The Starlight Centre.
Mona: That was quick! I’ll get this, Dad.
Joe: That’ll be $6.50.
Joe:  The main entrance is over there, on the right.
Jack: What’s your name, driver?
Joe:  Joe.
Jack: Nice to meet you, Joe.
Joe: Nice to meet you, too.
Mona: Keep the change, Joe.
Joe: Thanks!
Jack: Bye.
Joe: Bye. Hope you enjoy your stay!
请再听一遍对话的内容及中文翻译
乔:    我们到了。这里就是星光购物中心。
Joe: Well, here we are. The Starlight Centre.
蒙纳:   真快呀!我来付车钱吧,爸爸。
Mona:  That was quick! I’ll get this, Dad.
乔:    一共是六块五。
Joe:  That’ll be $6.50.
乔:    购物中心的大门在那边。。。。您的右侧。
Joe:  The main entrance is over there, on the right.
杰克:   请问您叫什么名字,司机先生?
Jack: What’s your name, driver?
乔:    我的名字是乔。
Joe:  Joe.
杰克:   很高兴认识您,乔。
Jack: Nice to meet you, Joe.
乔:    我也很高兴认识您。
Joe: Nice to meet you, too.
蒙纳:   请不用找钱了,乔。
Mona:  Keep the change, Joe.
乔:    谢谢。
Joe: Thanks!
杰克:   再见。
Jack: Bye.
乔:   再见,希望您在此地旅行愉快。
Joe: Bye. Hope you enjoy your stay!

您注意到了吗?杰克在即将下车时询问了计程车司机的姓名,也许您会感到有些奇怪,他们之间也许以后再也不会见面了,杰克为什么要打听司机的名字呢?在西方的文化中,有些人喜欢称呼他人的名字,而不是只简单地用 “you” “你”这个字,或者他人的职务名称来
称呼他人。现在就请您注意听一下我们这段对话中的人物在初次相遇后分别时是怎么说的吧。
杰克:   很高兴认识您,乔。
Jack:  Nice to meet you, Joe.
乔:    我也很高兴认识您。
Joe: Nice to meet you, too.
请注意听并跟着重复下列句子。
Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.

另外,请注意计程车司机乔是如何向乘客收取车资的。
乔:    一共是六块五。
Joe: That’ll be $6.50.
That’ll be 是 that will be 的简略说法。请注意听,并跟着重复。
That’ll be six dollars fifty.
That’ll be ten dollars.
That’ll be fifty dollars, thanks.

现在让我们再一起听一遍刚才的这段对话,请在乔的讲话之后重复他的句子。
Joe: Well, here we are.  Joe: The Starlight Centre.
Mona: That was quick! I’ll get this, Dad.  Joe: That’ll be $6.50.  Joe:  The main entrance is over there, …
Joe:  …on the right.
Jack: What’s your name driver?  Joe:  Joe.
Jack: Nice to meet you, Joe.  Joe: Nice to meet you, too.
Mona: Keep the change, Joe.  Joe: Thanks!  Jack: Bye.  Joe: Bye.  Joe:  Hope you enjoy your stay!
