 上邮局办事是日常民生所需,图为一名打扮为猫王的演员在赌城邮局邮寄包裹。(PRNewsFoto)<br>
(3)寄邮包(sending a parcel):<br>
<br>
(寄包裹时,自己要先用上面没有其它字样的纸箱装好,再用包装用的tape贴紧,因为邮局不准用绳子绑紮。)<br>
<br>
你说:<br>
<br>
Hi, I want to send this parcel by surface mail to Hongkong.<br>
<br>
(你好!我要用海运平寄这个包裹到香港。)<br>
<br>
注:surface mail就是海运平寄。如果包裹里有容易破损的东西,封面应注明"fragile"或"very fragile"或"handle with care"。在美国境内,如果寄食品包裹,封面也要注明"perishable"。<br>
<br>
对方:<br>
<br>
Please fill out these forms while I look up the rate in the book (computer).<br>
<br>
(请你填写这些表格,我来查查价目表。)<br>
<br>
(to fill out指填写表格)<br>
<br>
你说:<br>
<br>
Okay, thanks.<br>
<br>
(好,谢谢。)<br>
<br>
对方:<br>
<br>
The rate to Hongkong is $4.75 for the first pound and 95¢for any additional pounds.<br>
<br>
(到香港的价格,第一磅是四元七毛五,每加一磅是九毛五。)<br>
<br>
你问:<br>
<br>
How much will this package be?<br>
<br>
(这个包裹要多少钱?)<br>
<br>
对方说:<br>
<br>
The total is $18.75. What does it contain?<br>
<br>
(全部是十八元七毛五。里面是什么?)<br>
<br>
你说:<br>
<br>
Some personal belongings such as clothes.<br>
<br>
(一些私人日用品,如衣服等。)<br>
<br>
你也可以问:<br>
<br>
Will you please put a sticker "Handle with (special)care" on the front?<br>
<br>
(请你在封面前贴张「小心处理」的字条好吗?)<br>
<br>
你也许再问:<br>
<br>
May I have this package insured?<br>
<br>
(或I would like to have insurance on it.)<br>
<br>
(这个包裹我想保险。)<br>
<br>
对方:<br>
<br>
Yes, you may.<br>
<br>
(好,可以。)<br>
<br>
或,At present we don't extend insurance to that country.<br>
<br>
(目前我国对那个国家还没有保险。)<br>
<br>
注:美国对某些国家不受理保险。<br>
<br>
你问:<br>
<br>
What should I do if it gets lost?<br>
<br>
(假如遗失了,怎么办?)<br>
<br>
对方说:<br>
<br>
I am afraid you'll have to take that risk.<br>
<br>
(恐怕你要冒那个险。)<br>
<br>
(to take a risk = to take a chance = to take chances)<br>
<br>
你再问:<br>
<br>
I also want to send a box of books to Taiwan. Do you have a special rate for books?<br>
<br>
(我也要寄一箱书到台湾。寄书有特价吗?)<br>
<br>
对方说:<br>
<br>
Yes, the book rate is much cheaper when the package weighs only ten pounds.<br>
<br>
If you want to send it by book rate, you will need to open it up. We have to see what type of books are inside.<br>
<br>
(有的。寄书的包裹,只有10磅的话,就很便宜。如果你要用寄书的价格,必须把包裹打开,我们要看里面是什么书。)<br>
<br>
你问:<br>
<br>
Do I still have to fill out these forms?<br>
<br>
(我还要填写这些表格吗?)<br>
<br>
对方说:<br>
<br>
Yes, you do.<br>
<br>
(是,要的)<br>
<br>
你问:<br>
<br>
How much will this box be?<br>
<br>
(这一箱要多少钱?)<br>
<br>
对方说:<br>
<br>
Well, the first pound is $2.75 and 50¢for each additional pound. So the total is eight dollars and twenty cents.($8.20)<br>
<br>
(第一磅是两元七毛五,每加一磅是五毛钱,全部是八元两毛。)<br>
<br>
你说:<br>
<br>
Thanks a lot. Have a nice day.<br>
<br>
(多谢,祝你有愉快的一天。)<br>
<br>
注:以上所述的邮资,只是随手举例,并非实例。如想知道正确的邮资及各国保险情形,可上网络USPS.COM或询问邮局人员。(全文完)
