外企生存之道必备口语:如何让老板“无话可说“

1. 请假

Would it be possible for me to take the day off this Friday?

这个星期五,我是否可以休一天假?

请求休假用take the day off.如果是两天以上就用days off.上司可能会很干脆地答应说 "That'll be ok.",也可能会不悦地回答"Will everything be all right?(一切都安排就绪了吗?)"。这些都要看你平时的工作表现而定。

2. 提议

I think we need to buy a new copier.

我想我们需要买一台新的复印机。

说出这句话之前,必须要说明"Our copying machine has broken down again.(复印机又出毛病了。)"以作为提案的依据。客气一些的提议,可用"suggest"来表达,如"I would suggest we buy a new copier."

3. 表示了解上司的指示

Yes, of course.

是,我知道了。

也可以用"I understand.(我明白了。)",或"Yes, right away.(好的,马上去做。)"对上司说"ok"或 "all right"并不恰当。如果你很忙,应该说"I'm sorry, but I'm busy now. Could I do it later?"

4. 确认上司指示的内容

You did say next Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., didn't you?

您是说在下星期二下午2点,是不是?

任何事都必须确认一下。如果对方是外国人更要如此。上句也可以直截了当地说"let me confirm.(让我确认一下时间和日期。)"

5. 报告商谈结果

I had a feeling he was in favor of the plan.

我觉得他赞成那个计划。

记住"I have a feeling (that)…(我觉得……)",以及"…(that) he was against the plan.(他反对那个计划。)"这两句话,都是非常有用的哦!
