轻松日记商务职场篇 第83期:准时

时间:2017-03-11   栏目:商务英语对话  点击:
核心句型:
I will arrive on the dot.
我会准时到的。
on the dot直译过来就是:“压在点上”,这个短语的正确意思是:“准时的,不早也不晚的,刚好的”。因此,当美国人说"I will arrive on the dot."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"I will arrive on time."、"I will be there on the stroke."、"I will arrive punctually."。
情景对白:
Benjamin: Hello! This is Ben speaking.
本杰明:喂,我是本。
Terry: Ben, this is Terry. The office party will be held at 7 p.m. at Starbucks. Don't be late.
泰瑞:本,我是泰瑞。晚上七点在星巴克有同事聚会,别迟到哦。
Benjamin: Wonderful! I will arrive on the dot.
本杰明:太好了!我一定准时到。
搭配句积累:
①Don't worry.
请不要担心。
②Don't be late!
别迟到了啊!
③I'm looking forward to the office party this weekend.
