Narrator
大家好! 欢迎回到 Tip Top 贸易公司的办公室。Anna 的面试还在进行中呢!老板 Paul 之前问 Anna 为什么她应该得到这份工作?她最先的回答是:

Anna
Errr... mmmmm...

Narrator
然后她说了:

Anna
Mmmm... errr...

Narrator
现在她说的是:

Anna
Well, errrr... I'm errr.

Narrator
怎么搞的? Anna! 如果你突然卡住了,想不出恰当的表达,这时就得赶快换一种表达方式。

Anna
I am... Well, I really, really want this job and I am willing to work very hard if I get it.

Paul
So you’re very motivated, then?

Anna
Motivated! Yes, that’s it. I am really motivated.

Paul
Good! Why?

Narrator
好了,Anna,记住做答的时候要有条理!一定要用第一点 firstly,第二点secondly 等这样的词汇,然后再讲原因,最重要的原因要放在最后,说 above all。好,开始!第一个原因。

Anna
Firstly!

Paul
Firstly...?

Anna
Firstly, this job is an ideal match for my skills and experience: I've spent several years working in sales and I get on with people easily. Well, I mean, apart from the ones I don't like, of course. Secondly, I know Tip Top Trading is one of the fastest-growing companies in London, and I want to be part of that.

Paul
That's absolutely right. Tip Top Trading is the fastest growing company in the plastic fruit sector. But enough about the company, this is all about you, Annabel.

Anna
Anna.

Paul
Sorry, Anna. Where were we?

Anna
Well, I said that firstly, this job is an ideal match for my skills and experience, secondly, the company is growing fast... and… and… above all … the reason I want this job is…

Paul
Yes?

Paul
Denise! Is everything all right?

Denise
No Paul, it’s not. Everything is not OK!

Paul
You look pale. Here, sit down, drink what's left of my tea.

Denise
Oh, thank you! Oh… what are those bits floating in it?

Paul
Oh they're just lumps of soggy biscuit. In fact, if I can just... get that bit out... with my finger... for you. Mmm, delicious! Now, tell me what's happened.

Denise
Well, it's terrible...

Narrator
哎呀!糟了。安娜的面试正在顺利地进行,不过突然给打断了。发生什么事儿了?我们下集分晓。现在一起来回顾一下安娜是怎样回答老板提出的问题。

Firstly, this job is an ideal match for my skills and experience
Secondly, I know Tip Top Trading is one of the fastest-growing companies in London
and… above all … the reason I want this job is

Anna 记不住 motivated 这个单词,所以她必须用其他的词语来描述这个词。

I really, really want the job and I am willing to work very hard if I get it.

好样的,安娜。希望下周安娜能够顺利完成她的面试。
