各位朋友好,欢迎您收听“旅游英语”教学课程的第十二课。我是澳大利亚澳洲广播电台的节目主持人马健媛。

在第十一课中,我们学习了一些购物时常用的英语以及如何用英语来表达元,角和分的概念。在第十二课中,蒙纳女士仍然在服装店流连,考虑到底应该买哪些衣服。所以我们在这一课中就要学习一些如何用英语对客人表示你会耐心等候他们的购物决定。另外,我们还要学习使用信用卡过帐时常用的英语句子。在学习新的课文之前,让我们先来复习一下这段对话的第一部份。

Mai:  Can I help you?
Mona: I’m just looking, thanks.  Excuse me.
Mai: Yes?
Mona: These shawls. How much are they in American dollars?
Mai:  All of these prices are American dollars.
Mona: Oh. Why are they so expensive?
Mai:  They’re handmade.
Mona: And this one?
Mai:  It’s pure silk.
Mona: Hmm. Have you got one in purple?
Mai: I’ll have a look.
Yes, what about this one?
Mona: That’s nice.

现在让我们进入第十二课的内容。在这一课中,蒙纳还在继续挑选披肩。
Mona: Could I try the purple shawl again?  Mai:  Yes, of course.
Mona: The silk feels better. But it’s so expensive.   Sorry this is taking so long.  Mai:  No problem. Take your time.
Mona: Oh, that’s nice!
Mai: That hat?
Mona: Yes. Could I try it on?
Mai:  Sure. Here you are.
Mona: Oh, it’s lovely. How much is it?
Mai:  It’s $200.
Mona: I’ll take it!

我们再来听一遍这段对话及中文翻译
