流利英文 不要让how are you毁了第一印象

时间:2022-5-2 作者:知行英语网

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so how are you at making a good first impression in English?

你永远也不会得到第二个机会来制造第一印象,所以怎么样可以用英文流利的给他们留下好印象呢?

Being able to make a FLUENT first impression doesn’t have to be as hard as you think. The beauty of first impressions is that we already know 3 things that are going to happen in the conversation, a greeting/hello, an introduction, and a goodbye/farewell. If you can memorize and even script these 3 situations, then you bound to make a fluent first impression every time.

给他们留下一个流利的第一印象并不是像你想象的那样难。第一印象在对话中的魔力之处无非包括3件事情,这个已经广为人知。那就是问好,介绍和告别。假如你能记下甚至像写电影脚本一样写下这三个场景,那样你一定每次都能给其他人留下流利的印象。

For me, learning to speak Portuguese has been a difficult journey, and very intimidating when meeting new people. At the beginning I always worried about making a mistake during an introduction, offending someone, or making a bad first impression in general.About 4 months into my learning experience, I decided to learn and memorize every possible greeting, introduction and goodbye I could think of. Suddenly, I felt invincible and a lot more natural when meeting new people. My Portuguese didn’t sound so robotic, and surprisingly enough I was just saying the same words in the same situations over and over again. From my fluent first impressions, people were complimenting me on how natural my Portuguese was, even though I had only greeted them, introduced myself and used a few ice breaking techniques.

对于我而言,学说葡萄牙语过去是件痛苦艰难的旅程,每当见到生人我就变得非常胆怯。最初时,我总是担忧我在做自我介绍时说错话,冒有其他人或是给他们留下不好印象。经过4个月的学习过程,我决定学习并尽量背下来我所能想到的所有问候,介绍和告别的方法。忽然间,我感到再见到生人后自己无敌了而且放松自然多了。我的葡萄牙语听上去并不那样生硬,而且让人惊奇的是我几乎不停地在每一个场所用同样的话来应酬。从我给大家留下流利的第一印象可以看出,虽然我只不过用了几个容易的问好,自我介绍和打破尴尬氛围的方法,大家还是恭维我,说我的葡萄牙语好。

流利英文 不要让how are you毁了第一印象

Using these techniques of having a fluent first impression, made me feel more confident and relaxed when speaking and it pushed me to work harder on improving my fluency in all areas of the language.

用这类让我拥有好第一印象的方法让我感到讲话时更自信放松,而且它促进我积极改进语言各个范围的流利度。

In this article you are going to learn how to make a FLUENT first impression in English based on these 3 most important aspects you’re going to be faced with every time, greetings/hellos, introductions/ ice breakers and goodbyes.

本文中你将掌握怎么样用英文流利地给他们留下好印象,我将介绍3个你每次都要面对的要紧部分——问好;介绍、打破僵局;结束对话。

1、 Greetings/ Hellos 问好篇

As most of you have probably learnt, the most commonly taught way to greet someone is

大多数人都了解问好的方法如下:

-“Hi, How are you?”

-“Fine thanks, and you?”

-“Good, thanks for asking.”

This phrase is 100% correct, and probably used 100% of the time by English learners. But doesn’t that get a little boring after a while? If you want to persify your greetings a little bit, and make it sound more fluent, leave those text books in the classroom, there is another way. How does this sound.

这个对话确实100%正确,而且可能已经被英语学习者100%的用过了。但,你不感觉用了这么久已经感到厌烦了吗?假如你想让我们的问候有特点些,听起来更流利些,请放弃用那些课堂上教科书中的使用方法,大家有其它办法。你看下面这个听起来怎么样:

-“Hey buddy! What have you been UP TO?”

嘿,哥们儿!(朋友)近期忙什么呢?

-“Oh hey Dude! Not too much, just working and hanging out with my girlfriend.”

嗨,老兄!也没忙什么,就是上上班,跟好朋友逛逛街什么的。

-“Sweet.”

很好嘛。

That sounds a lot more natural right? So, what does UP TO mean?

这听起是否自然多了?那样, UP TO的意思是呢?

The expression up to is a synonym of do. We use this in spoken English because as it’s more of an informal expression. When I greet someone with the question “what have you been up to?” I am asking them what have they been DOING recently.

up to这个使用方法是do的近义词。大家在英文口语中用它由于它是一个不正式的表达办法。当我用“what have you been up to?”这种方法来问候其他人时,我实质是在问他们近期在忙什么呢。

The question is in the present perfect continuous so you will answer with the verb in the continuous. For example:

这个问题是用目前完成进行时来提问的,所以回答时也用进行时态的这个动词。比如:

§ “Hey mate, what have you been up to?”

“Ah, the same old, studying, surfing, going out, having some drinks with friends.”

§ “Have you been playing guitar?”

§ “yeah I’ve been playing a few times a week.”

§ “You been watching the football?”

§ “Nah, I don’t really like watching football.”

You’ll notice that’s its very common for a native speaker to use the present perfect continuous like this when greeting a buddy. When a person greets me this way the conversation seems to flow a lot more, and it allows us to summarize all the recent news very quickly and concisely.

你会发现对于一个母语用户,他们在问候兄弟时非常喜欢用目前完成进行时。当有人用这种方法问好时,对话听起来更顺畅自然,会使大家容易飞速地罗列出近期发生的要紧事情。

2、 Introductions/ Ice breakers介绍/打破僵局篇

When introducing yourself in another language people are always going to want to know the same information, trust me, being a Gringo in Brazil I’ve had to introduce myself more times that I can remember.

你要了解当用其它语言介绍你一个人时,大家想要了解的信息一直一样的。作为巴西的一个外国佬,我所做过的自我介绍次数多的自己都记不了解了。

People are always going to ask you these same three questions.

大家一直要问你同样的问题。

-What’s your name? (you’re probably going to have to repeat it a couple of times or make it sound more English)

你叫什么名字?(你非常可能要无数次地回答这个问题,那样让自己听起来更英语范儿吧)

-Where are you from? (be prepared to describe you city geographically)

你来自哪儿?(筹备好描述你所在城市的地理特点)

-What are you doing here? (People are always curious)

来这做什么?(大家一直非常不错奇)

Another good way to make a good first impression is to get that person talking about themselves or their city. This can be done during the introduction phase as a way of breaking the ice.

还有一种办法可以给人留下好印象,同时又能让他们张口谈自己或他们的城市。这种方法可以再自我介绍部分后以打破僵局的形式来完成。

§ So, where are you from?

§ Is your family from here/there?

§ What did you think of the soccer last night?

§ What do you think of this place/the beer/the music here?

§ Don’t you just hate waiting in line/this music/the noise?

The whole idea of these ice-breakers is to get the other person talking while you simply sit back and listen. Sure, your probably thinking that this is a very impersonal exercise, but the purpose of this is to give yourself more confidence when approaching people in English. After doing this enough times, you’ll see that it starts to become a very easy and natural process and in no time you’ll be expanding your fluent first impressions to fluent everything.

打破沉闷僵局的方法非常简单,那就是让他们说,而你仅需坐在那里倾听就好了。当然,你可能觉得这是个别案例,但这是一种可以助你在用英文跟人交际时提高自信的好方法。等你适用国多次后,你会发现对话开始变得轻松自然,而你非常快就可以提高你流利的第一印象,进而使英文处处流利。

3、 Goodbyes告别篇

No matter what the language is, we always have to say goodbye. But don’t you want to know how to express yourself and show that you really appreciated that person’s company? Sometimes in a second language it’s a little hard to do that from the heart.

无论用何种语言交流,大家总要说再见的。但你真的了解怎么样表达我们的意思才能使他们感到与你做朋友非常高兴吗?说心理话,用第二语言来表达告别还是有点困难的。

I really love saying goodbye to people in Portuguese, as bad as that sounds, because there are so many cool, friendly expressions. Some of these words don’t exist or they would never be used in English for example, “some nao” or the word “saudades.”There are other expressions you can use in English which may not have the same meaning, but can be used in an endearing way nonetheless. For example:

我真心非常喜欢用葡萄牙语与大家道别,由于葡萄牙语里有好多非常友善非常赞的表达办法。有的词可能英文中没有或永远没办法用英文来表达,比如“some nao”或“saudades.”或许英文中也有如此的词,无论怎么样,你都可以用这类来表达告别。比如:

It was really great to see you, catch you .later.

见到你真的非常高兴,下次再聊。

It has been a pleasure, we’ll speak soon.

聊的非常高兴,咱们下次继续。

It was nice talking to ya, have a good one.

跟你聊天非常愉快,祝你每天高兴。

Take care/ take it easy, see you soon.

保重,下次见。

Keep in touch (when you don’t see the person very often)

维持联系(当你不常常见到某人)

I’m looking forward to seeing you soon

我期待下次与你见面。

See you next time.

下次见。

May the force be with you. (Used by Star Wars nerds)

愿力量与你同在。(星球大战中用词)

In all of these situations I’ve explained, I’ve given you a scripted scenario of what is most likely to happen. Think of it as if you were an actor performing in a play. Whether it’s an introduction, greeting or goodbye, we know what questions are going to be asked and with a little thought beforehand, you can really make yourself sound fluent and give a great first impression.

以上所有我详细介绍过的场景,我都有讲到最可能发生的情景下怎么样应付的脚本。你可以像演员演戏一样来演练一下。无论是自我介绍,问好还是告别,大家都胸有成足大家会问什么问题,只须大家事先筹备充分,我保证你肯定能给他们留下一个流利而又好的第一印象。
