【Oral English】

1.L: Hi, Monica, how are you doing today?

早,Monica,今天感觉怎样?

How are you doing?

你好吗?

英语中常见的打招呼用语,如:

-How are you doing?

-I’m doing good.

Doing在这里不是“做什么”的意思,good 这个形容词也被当作副词用,美国人平常就这么说,相当于熟人见面时说:“你怎么样?”“挺好的。”

类似的问好方式还有:

-How’s everything going?

-Howdy!

-What’s up?

几句话都相当于“你怎么样?”“你好吗?”但如果细究,第一句似问对方最近一切是否顺利;第二句据说是从How do ye?这句19世纪初的问候语简化而来;而第三句则侧重问对方那里有没有新闻,但实际就是打招呼。

2.L: Your supervisor, Mr. White was out on a business trip.

你的上司,怀特先生出差去了。

supervisor 主管人,导师

如:The supervisor always start his new employee on the lobster shift.

领导总是让刚开始工作的新职员值夜班。

As her immediate supervisor for the last two years, I can state that she is a very good secretary.

作为她二年来的直接领导,我可以说她是一位优秀的秘书。
