An employee must inform the employer before starting the leave that he or she will be taking a personal leave of absence。

情景对话1:

简因病和琳商量工作安排。

Jane: I can't make it to work today. I've got the flu or something. 我今天不能来上班了,我得了流感。

Lynn: Oh, no! That's too bad. Is there anything I can do for you? 哦,不!那太糟糕了。我能帮你什么忙吗?

Jane: Well, there is one thing, if you don't mind. 哦,有一件事要麻烦你。

Lynn: No problem. What is it? 没问题,什么事?

Jane: I'm scheduled to give a thirty-minute tour of the factory this afternoon. 我今天下午本来安排了半个小时带人参观工厂。

Lynn: A thirty-minute tour? Sure. I'll take care of that for you. Who's going to be on the tour? 半个小时的参观?没问题,我帮你。谁要来参观?

Jane: Oh, it's a group of fifty junior high school students. 是50多个初中学生。

Lynn: Well, yeah, I guess I could do that for you...Sure. 好,我想我能帮你,没问题。

Jane: Really? Thanks a million. I really appreciate it. 真的?太感谢了,我非常感谢。

Lynn: Don't mention it! 不客气。

Notes:

"请求"注意事项

在提出请求时,除了必要的礼貌外,还需注意两点:

(1)大胆。

大胆就是敢于提出自己的请求,特别是那些初到英美的中国学子,不要过分顾虑自己的语言能力。绝大多数外国人只要听懂你的意思,并不会注意你是否用错时态,混淆名词的单复数,或某几个音发不准。

(2)坦率。

坦率就是直截了当地提出自己的要求,不要绕圈子。英美人一般比较坦率,能帮忙的,会马上答应。如果爱莫能助,也会当场说明理由,加以拒绝:I think I'll be able to help you, but.。。

情景对话 2:

金想在一月份休假以便去探望在中国的双亲。她正同人事经理助理亨特商量使用她的假期探亲。

King: Morning, Hunter. 早上好,亨特。

Hunter: Hi, King. What can I do for you? 你好,金。有什么事吗?

King: I'd like to talk to you about my vacation. 我想同你谈谈我的假期。

Hunter: You're lucky, King. I'm just going to draw up the holiday rotation this year. So, go ahead and tell me what you want. 你真幸运,金。我刚准备制订今年的假期轮值表。所以,说吧,告诉我你有什么要求。

King: Well, I'm planning to have three weeks' leave in January and I want to use my vacation days for this year. 是这样,我正计划在一月份休假三个星期,而且我想用我今年的休假日。

Hunter: Going abroad, I suppose? 准备出国,是不是?

King: Yes, I want to go to see my parents in China. 是的,我想去探望在中国的父母。

Hunter: Good idea. But it so happened that Donald wanted to get away in January too. And you can't be away at the same time as Donald. 好主意。不过碰巧唐纳德也想一月份休假,而你不能跟唐纳德同时休假。

King: Why can't we both go when we want? 为什么我们不能想去休假的时候都去呢?

Hunter: Because there must be someone to keep the work going. 因为总得有人把工作进行下去。

King: I see. So when I'm away, Donald has to stand in for me. 我明白了。这么说当我休假时唐纳德得替代我?

Hunter: Yes, and vice versa. 是的,而且反过来也是。

King: Well. You know, I have a good reason for chossing January. 这个,你知道,我挑选一月份是有原因的。

Hunter: What's that? 什么原因?

King: Because we celebrate the Spring Festival in January this year, and it's our tradition to have a family reunion then. 因为今年我们在一月份庆祝春节,而且春节期间合家团圆是我们的传统。

Hunter: All right. I'll do my best to meet your request. 那好吧,我会尽量满足你得要求。

King: That's very kind of you, Hunter. Thank you very much. 你真是太好了,亨特,非常感谢。

Hunter: No problem. 不用谢。
