Small talk在北美非常普遍。即使陌生人之间,在很多情况下,也要寒暄闲聊几句:

Strangers 陌生人

Acquaintances 熟人

Cashiers 收营员

Waiters 服务员

Coworkers 同事

Neighbors 邻居

……

所以你需要:

Dummy-proof/fail-proof small talk phrases :不会失败的small talk话题


#1 怎么打招呼?

最经典:

(Good) Morning, afternoon

Good evening

注意: 前者母语者常常省略good,语气更加轻松一些。不过后者不可以省略

最地道:

Hi there!

How is it going?

What's up?

注意: What's up?非常不正式,是年轻人喜欢的俚语。

怎么回复?

Good. 挺好的

Not bad. 不错

So far so good. 到目前为止还不错

什么场合用:

Anywhere

小tip:small talk一般不涉及到你生活的细节,所以如果有什么委屈事还是留给家人朋友:

Keep it positive. 只谈好事。

#2. 如何聊天气?

虽然聊天气没新意,但的确还是最自然、最容易入手的话题!

怎么聊?

Depending on the weather, make appropriate comments: 根据当天的天气,聊对应的

Nice weather 如果是好天

What nice weather we are having!

Gorgeous weather!

What a beautiful day out!

Horrible weather 如果是坏天气

What terrible weather outside!

The weather sucks.

注意: suck这个词不太得体的,只能和很熟悉的人说。

什么场合用:

Anywhere.

#3. 加些小细节


除了简单的问侯、天气,还可以稍微深入一些:

怎么聊?

How is it going? 今天怎么样?

How is your day going? 同上

怎么回复:

It's a busy day.

It's a slow/quiet day.

什么场合用:

In the office: 跟同事、老板

In the store: 跟商店店员

In the coffee shop:咖啡店店员

#4. 最有巧思: 谈着装

如果想更有新意,着装是个不错的话题!

怎么聊:

Nice shoes/shirt/dress!

I love your shoes/shirt/dress!

Where did you get it? 你哪里买的?

You look great today!(如果对方换了造型,这句很合适。但也要小心,因为如果对方没什么变化,这样说可能让人感觉你认为他平时很邋遢。)

You look well rest! 看起来气色很好(一般放假、周末以后可以用)

#5. 怎么收尾?
