电话英语很轻松/Phone call ettiquette
Student:Could you tell me some useful sentences that I could use on a phonecall?You know my English is poor. I'm afraid I can't follow you.
Teacher:No problem.Basically,there are 3 situations in which people like you can't follow the foreign teacher.1:I may speak too fast.So you can't understand.In this case,you could say "You speak a little fast,slow down,please"
Student:Wait a moment. I'll have to take down what you said.
Student:Then what's the second point?
Teacher:The second is maybe you can't hear me clearly.In this case,you could say "Excuse me.Can you speak up,please?"or "I beg you pardon?"
Student:I see.What's the last point?
Teacher:The last one is you may miss or you don't understand what I just said.In this case,you culd say "I'm sorry,I don't understand what you're saying.or simply I don't get it"
Student:Is there more?
Teacher:You'd better practice them before you know more.
Student:Thanks.I've learned a lot today.
打电话的时候会有许多功能句。像：你能再说一遍吗？或是你能大点声吗？等等。这里举几个例子。Ie:Slow down,please.[请说慢点儿]look at time.Shall we call next time?[看看表吧。下次在聊]I'm happy to hear you again[真高兴能听到你的声音]等。
[ie:What does "***" mean? "***"是意思？]
Hello. speaking. How may I help you?
Keeping busy. What have you been up to?
