场景二:寄包裹

【Laura为邮局员工,Mark为寄包裹的人】

Mark: Excuse me, is this the parcel post counter?

Laura: No. It’s at counter 4, right over there.

Mark: (At counter 4.) I’d like to send this parcel by post.

Laura: What is in it, please?

Mark: (Showing it to the parcel post clerk.) A laptop I’m sending to my brother.

Laura: And by air or ordinary mail?

Mark: I’d rather send it by ordinary mail.

Laura: Do you want to insure it?

Mark: I don’t know. Is it worth it?

Laura: That all depends on the value. Insurance rates are relatively low and worth the small extra expense.

Mark: Oh, I see. Please insure it for fifty dollars.

Laura: All right. That’s nine dollars and forty cents.

Mark: Here you are.

Laura: Here’s the receipt.

Mark: Thank you very much.

【翻译】

Mark: 请问,这是寄包裹的柜台吗?

Laura: 不是。请到4号柜台,就在那边。

Mark: (在4号柜台。)我想邮寄这个包裹。

Laura: 请问,包裹里面是什么?

Mark: (把包裹给职员看。)一台手提电脑,寄给我弟弟的。

Laura: 航空邮寄还是普通邮寄?

Mark: 普通邮寄。

Laura: 你想保险吗?

Mark: 嗯,我不清楚。这值得保险吗?

Laura: 那得视价值而定。保险费比较低,多花点钱还是值得的。

Mark: 哦,我明白了。请保五十元吧。

Laura: 好。请付九元四角。

Mark: 给你。

Laura: 这是收据。

Mark: 非常谢谢。

【重点语句】

1. Excuse me. 对不起;劳驾;请问

客套用语。用于向陌生人询问或自己要走开、插话表示异议或举止失礼等场合。

2. And by air or ordinary mail? 是寄航空邮件还是普通邮件?

这句话等于And by air mail or ordinary [regular] mail? 介词by表示行为的方式或手段。

3. Is it worth it? 这值得吗?

worth为形容词,后面接名词、代词、数词或动名词作宾语。

意为“值得......的;相当于......的价的”。
