  求助 & 问路 & 找住房

  Asking Favors 求助

  When you ask for things, it is important to be polite. The intonation that you use in making your request is as important as what you actually say. When you think someone will refuse your request, you can ask the question in such a way that the refusal does not cause embarrassment.

  1. A: Is there any chance of my borrowing your type-writer?

  B: For how long?

  A: Until the end of the week.

  B: Yes, I guess that would be all right.

  2. A: Would you mind if I borrowed your car?

  B: Well, when exactly?

  A: Until Monday or Tuesday of next week.

  B: I'm sorry, but it's just not possible.

  3. A: Do you think you could lend me some of your records?

  B: Until when?

  A: Oh, just over the holidays.

  B: I'm not sure. I'll have to think about it.

  4. A: I was wondering if you'd let me stay with you for a few days.

  B: It really depends on when.

  A: Until next weekend, if that's OK.

  B: Let me think it over, and I'll let you know later.

  Asking for Directions 问路

  People are usually helpful when you ask for directions. You should try to have the exact address and be as specific as possible. Telephone directories are the most common sourse of addresses. Remember that many cities and some towns are built in "blocks". People will often tell you, for example, to "go two blocks and turn right."

  1.A:Excuse me, Can you tell me where Main Street is?

  B:Turn left at the second light and then go straight for two blocks.

  A:Is it far?

  B:No. It's only a five-minute walk.

  A:Thanks a lot.

  B:You're welcome.

  2.A:Excuse me. Could you please tell me how to get to the station?

  B:Turn left at the first light. You can't miss it.

  A:Will it take me long to get there?

  B:No. It's not far at all.

  A:Thank you.

  B:Don't mention it.

  3.A:Can you help me out? I'm trying to find a post office.

  B:Go three block and make a right. It's right there.

  A:Should I take the bus?

  B:No. It'll only take about five minutes to walk.

  A:Thank you very much.

  B:Any time.

  4.A:Pardon me. I wonder if you could tell me how to get to Mott Street?

  B:Keep going straight for two blocks, then turn right o Elm Street and you'll run right into it.

  A:Is it too far to walk?

  B:Nl. It's only a little ways.

  A:Thanks.

  B:Sure. Have a good day.

  Finding a Room 找住房

  In smaller cities and towns, it's usually quite easy to find a room to rent. This is especially true in towns where universities or college are located.

  1.A: Do you take in students?

  B: Yes. If you don't mind sharing room, there's one available.

  A: How much is it?

  B: $30.00 a week.

  A: Do you think I could have a look at it, please?

  B: I'm on my way out now. Couldyou come back in an hour?

  2.A: I've been told you might have a vacant room.

  B: Yes. I have a spare room.

  A: How much are you asking?

  B: $10.00 a night.

  A: Could I see the room, please?

  B: Sure. Come on in.

  3.A: A friend told em I might find a room here.

  B: Yes. I'll have a room free next week.

  A: What do you charge?

  B: $25.00 a week, but you can't have visitors.

  A: Fine. Would It be OK to look at the room?

  B: Could you come back later? We're right in the middle of dinner.

  4.A: I wonder if you can help me. I'm looking for a room.

  B: Yes. I've got a small room.

  A: How much do you charge?

  B: $35.00 a week, but don't allow smoking.

  A: OK. Can I see the room now?

  B: Would you mind waiting? I'm on the telephone.
