How to Order at the Business Dinner如何订商务晚餐陈豪在北京的A美国公司工作,他跟美国同事Amy一起喝下午茶。(Office ambience)A: Chen Hao, youve been attending a lot of business dinners lately. Didnt your team go out again last night with the clients?C: 没错。我老板Mr. Brown决定请客人到附近刚开张的那家法国餐馆去吃饭。A: How did it go?C: 饭菜的味道确实不错,但是有个客人很失态。A: What do you mean?C: 首先,她点的菜都是菜单上价钱最贵的。A: What did the others do?C: 其他人点的都是中等价位的,我也一样。A: This client sounds as if she could use some business etiquette training. Unless Mr. Brown suggested that you all order certain pricey dishes, she should have chosen something moderately priced.C: 我觉得也是。除非主人坚持,否则客人应该点一些普通的菜才对。A: Its rude to take advantage of your host like that. This client is not very savvy about business dining.C: Savvy是什么意思啊?A: Savvy means having knowledge and experience.C: 这个客户确实不懂礼貌,而且还不只这些呢!A: Lets head back to the office now. You can tell me on the way.陈豪和Amy两人一起往回走。A: So there is more to this story?C: 那个客人不仅点的都是最贵的,而且一道菜都不拉。A: Like what?C: 从汤开始,然后是头台、沙拉,主菜,最后还有特制的甜点,一样不少。A: What did everyone else do?C: Mr. Brown虽然吃得很少,但也只好跟着她一道菜一道菜地点。A: He was doing the correct thing as host by ordering the same as the client.C: 作为主人,一定要这么做吗?A: When someone orders appetizers or other dishes in addition to the entrée, it is polite for others to order the same courses.C: 那又是为什么呢?A: That keeps the pace of the dinner even and avoids the awkwardness of one person eating a course by herself.C: 如果没有别人点汤的话,那个客户自己吃的时候一定会觉得很尴尬。A: At an informal dinner, some people have soup while others may select a different appetizer to have at the same time. Everyone should have an equal number of courses.C: 那作为请客的主人,在饭桌上能做些什么呢?A: Simple. The host can say, ;Why dont we all have an appetizer?; Or he could ask, ;Would anyone like something to start with?;C: 这样一来,你就能知道自己是不是唯一想点头台的人了。A: Right. If no one else has a starter course, then you dont either.C: 你真应该给昨天那个客人好好上一课。 /201209/198737

投资顾问Jerry跟客户Frank见面,向他推销一种投资想法。Jerry: I believe the iron is hot right now in the field of energy and transportation. Everyone is looking for new ways to reduce energy consumption.我认为在能源和交通方面铁很重要。每个人都在寻找最佳降低能源的新方法。F: Yeah, youre right. I bought a hybrid car last month...saves me as much as 50% in gasoline use!是的,你是对的。我上个月买了一个动力车;;耗油量减少了50%。J: Hybrids are the hottest thing on the market these days, and I think they fill a niche right now, but Im betting that the future belongs to fully electric-powered vehicles.动力车是当下市场上最流行的。但是我认为汽车今后还是要向纯电动方向发展。Jerry 觉得,能源和交通是投资的正确方向,一定要趁热打铁。Frank表示赞成,说自己上个月刚买了一辆汽电混合动力车hybrid,耗油量少了一半。Jerry承认,汽电混合动力车现在很流行,有自己的市场定位niche, niche is spelled n-i-c-h-e,但他觉得,汽车今后还是要向纯电动的方向发展。F: That might be true. But I manufacture in China. Millions of people there dont even have a gas-powered car yet.这有可能是真的。但是我的工厂在中国。大多数中国人连汽油动力都没有。J: Yes...but dont you see? This is a golden opportunity! Millions of middle class Chinese could potentially leapfrog over the old technologies and embrace electric vehicles.是的;;这是个绝好的机会!数以百万计的中产阶级都可以跨越陈旧的技术,直接利用新技术。F: Its an interesting idea. I know the government is supporting electric vehicles since many cities have serious air pollution.这是个有趣的故事。因为很多城市都有空气污染,政府还是很持电动汽车的发展的。Frank的工厂在中国,而中国很多人连汽油动力车都没有,哪谈得上什么纯电力车呢?Jerry却觉得,这是绝好的机会。This is a golden opportunity. 因为中国数以百万计的中产阶级都可以跨越陈旧的技术,直接利用新技术,这里所说的leapfrog蛙跳,是跃过,跨过的意思。Frank觉得,这种想法有道理,因为中国政府为了治理空气污染,非常持电动汽车的发展。J: Just imagine! You could make a lot of money AND help make China a better place for people to live.想象下!那样你可以赚很多钱并且让中国的生活环境提高。F: So you want me to invest in producing electric cars?所以说你希望我投资声场电动车?J: I think the real area of interest here is batteries. Battery technology needs to catch up. We aly have a lot of companies that can make the cars, but batteries are far too expensive.我认为真正的感兴趣的领域是电池。电池技术还需要改进,但是电池太贵了。开发电力汽车,这种既能赚钱,又能改善中国生活环境的事何乐而不为呢?Jerry补充说,他其实不是建议Frank投资电力汽车,The real area of interest is batteries,真有干头的是电池这一块,因为battery technology needs to catch up,电池技术还需要改进。Frank会被Jerry说,投资电力汽车电池技术的开发吗?我们下次继续听。 /164085
