Narrator   
欢迎回到 Tip Top 贸易公司的办公室。

Tom              
Anna, are you going to answer that?

Anna           
Er, well, no. It's stopped now anyway.

Narrator   
嗯,安娜表现有点奇怪呀。

Denise          
I gave you a long lesson on how to answer the phone and you're still too scared!

Anna             
It's not that.

Tom             
For goodness sake!    

Denise          
Then what?

Anna             
I recognise the number - it's Mr Lime!

Tom              
Ha! Old Slimy Limy, he must be absolutely desperate to get you to have lunch with him – even after your cruel rejection. Here, I'll answer for you.

Anna            
No!

Denise          
I'll answer. Hello, Tip Top Trading, Anna's phone... no, this is Denise speaking, Anna's busy at the moment. Can I take a message?... yes... right.... I'll pass that on to her then… thank you for calling. Goodbye.

Anna           
Well.

Denise          
Nothing about lunch. He wants each Imperial Lemon you deliver to come in a luxury green box – like the one you had at the presentation.

Anna            
My goodness, we don't have many in stock. I'll have to order some. Erm... Hello, this is Anna speaking from Tip Top Trading, I want some imperial lemon-sized luxury boxes.

Narrator    
Woah, woah, woah!

Anna             
What? 

Narrator   
我们先注意一下礼貌好不好?

Anna            
Why are the English so obsessed with being polite!? 

Narrator     
安娜,可别急, 听我说。下订单的时候,你会用到以下几个短语:

I'd like to place an order for...
我想订几个⋯⋯

We're going to need...
我们现在需要⋯⋯

Could you send...
您能送⋯⋯

Could we also have...
我们能不能要⋯⋯

When can we expect to receive them?
我们什么时候能够收到呢? 

Anna             
Right... Hello, sorry about that... I'd like to place an order for some imperial lemon-sized luxury boxes, please... we're going to need quite a few... could you send 300 please... yes... the green ones... could we also have the name of our company on the sides... when can we expect to receive them...okay, thank you, goodbye. There! How was that?

There! How was that?

Narrator     
不错,好样的!

Denise         
You'd better phone back Mr Lime to confirm he can have his boxes!

Anna             
Oh no! 

Denise         
He's your client!

Tom            
Yes Anna, he's your client!

Anna            
I'm scared he'll try and ask about lunch again.

Denise         
Then send him an email.

Anna            
Good idea! 

Denise         
Copy in me, Tom and Paul, so it’s clear you mean business only.

Anna             
Yes. Thanks Denise! An email is much safer.

Narrator   
真的吗?安娜,你确定?以下是刚才安娜下订单时用到的一些短语:

I'd like to place an order for...

We're going to need...

Could you send...

Could we also have...

When can we expect to receive them?

安娜发邮件真的是个好主意吗?我感觉不妙。下次再看会发生些什么情况吧!
