(both look at cards for a few seconds, then put them in wallets-not pockets)

谢谢您,孙先生。也请收下我的名片(递上自己的名片),叫我Johnathan就行了。

J: Everything I've seen so far is very impressive. Very impressive indeed.

到目前为止,我所看到的一切都令我印象深刻,真的十分深刻。

情境短语

1. get acquainted (with…) (和`……)认识,熟悉……

这个常用的短语暗示双方从不认识到熟识, "get"可换 "become"。若是短语之后,要加上被认识的对象,以介系词 "with"连接。

例: Our boss got acquainted with a couple of real estate agents in the golf Club.

(我们老板在高尔夫俱乐部里结识了几位做房地产的商人。)

2. on top of things 完全掌握

字面的意思是将问题克服,高高踩在上面,引申为"控制全局"。

例: The new manager was always worried he wasn't on top of things.

(新经理一直担心自己无法掌握全局。)

3. (a) force to be reckoned with 值得注意的人物

"(a) force","力量",可以指一个团体、事物或个人; "reckon"在此的意思为"认定"。 "a force to be reckoned with"是形容"有成功的条件而值得注意的人物、团体"。

例: The new company will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.

(这家新公司未来值得大家注意。)

4. Don't I know it. 我完全同意!

当此句型以句点(.)而非问号结尾时,表示完全同意对的方意见,为口语用法,强调的是肯定的含意。意思为"我怎会不知道!?;我当然明白这一点!"。

例: You say the discount rate is too low? Don't I know it!

(你说这折扣打得太少?我完全同意!)

5. in a nutshell 简言之

"nutshell"原为"坚果壳",又指"极小的容器",故 "in a nutshell" 这个副词短语的意思是"简言之"。

例: Bob told us in a nutshell what happened in the managers' meeting.

(Bob简略地告诉我们经理们开会的情形。)

6. growth sector 成长领域

这个经济学上的名词是指经济成长特别快速的领域, "sector"是"区域;部门"的意思。

例: The leisure and entertainment industry is a growth sector in Taiwan.
