5、兼任导游传播中国文化

自从上次学习了budget-making之后,Nancy就意识到自己知识面的有限,开始抓紧时间给自己充电。“活到老,学到老”,这句老话是有道理的。其实英语里也有同样的说法,只是表达上更加乐观一点儿:You’re never too old to learn.

下周一公司要参加Asia-Pacific Area(亚太区)最大的PC(personal computer个人电脑)供应商的bidding(投标会),Marketing Department则要负责前期的准备工作。Frank把部门员工分成三组,并分别给各组分别分配了任务:

A组负责和Technique Department(技术部门)确定technical requirements(技术要求);

B组负责paper work(文书);

C组,即Nancy和Beryl,要与Finance Department一起做cost and profit calculation(成本和利润核算),以确定tender price(投标的价格)。

看到这个任务安排之后,Nancy就想到前几天学的budget-making可以派上用场了,或许这就是当初Frank要求Nancy去学习budget-making的真正目的吧!

坐在电脑前做了一天的计算,终于把tender price搞定了,Nancy这才感到自己已经腰酸背痛了。一看时间还有十分钟就可以下班了,她伸了伸懒腰,活动活动肩膀,就在这时,Frank手里端着一杯coffee走了过来。他靠在Nancy的桌边,很酷也很神秘地看着不停揉捏后颈的Nancy说道,“A boring day, uh?”Nancy冲他不好意思地笑了笑。Frank凑近了一点继续说着,“You know what? I have a very interesting job for you. We have a customer from Australia here. Do you mind being a guide for a city tour tomorrow?”

“Wow, that really sounds interesting.” Nancy心里想,果然是一件好差事,这样就可以有一整天的时间让自己透透气,顺便做做运动了,于是便一口答应下来。接下来,两人制定了一个One Day City Tour Plan(北京一日游计划)。回到家后,Nancy琢磨着自己以前从没给外国人当过导游,肯定要做做功课,否则到时候自己丢脸不说,还会给公司造成不好的影响。她泡了个澡,refresh(重振精神)一下,就赶紧打开电脑,仔细地在网上找相关景点的介绍。最后定下了一个很好玩的list:

  Most Visited Places by Foreigners in Beijing

The Great Wall at Badaling

Summer Palace

Qianmen Street

The Forbidden City

Tian’anmen Square

Venues of Olympic Games

Hutongs

798 Art Zone

这里面的长城、故宫和颐和园一直是最受欢迎的景点,这一点自然不必说,而在最近这些年里奥运场馆、前门大街、传统的北京胡同和新开发的798艺术区也成了老外们最喜欢的去处。虽然在北京生活了三年多,可有些地方Nancy自己也没有去过,要向外宾介绍自己生活的城市,看来她要多关注一下周围的发展变化了。

好在明天要去的是长城,两年前爸爸妈妈来北京看她的时候,Nancy已经陪他们一起去过了。可这次要用英语向老外介绍长城,Nancy还是需要好好准备一下。她找到八达岭长城的官方website,还好上面有完整的英文介绍,她一边看一边琢磨着明天该怎么组织语言。

忙活了两个小时,Nancy心里终于有了点儿底,决定好了要从哪些方面来介绍长城。

Introduce the history of sites.

Tell the location, features and functions of the place.

Introduce the plan for the whole trip.

第二天早上九点,Nancy一身casually dressed(休闲装束),来到Glory Hotel接这位customer。

Good morning. My name is Nancy. I’m very honored to be your guide today. I do hope you could like my guiding and enjoy everything on your pleasant day. This morning we are going to visit the Great Wall.

Great idea!

There is a Chinese saying: He, who has never been to the Great Wall, is not a true man.(不到长城非好汉)The Great Wall is one of the greatest wonders of the world. Just like a gigantic dragon, the Great Wall winds up and down across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching approximately 8,851.8 kilometers from east to west of China.

Which part of it are we going to climb today?

The Badaling Section of the Great Wall. It lies in Yanqing County, 80 kilometers away from the northwest of Beijing city. It is the most representative section of the Great Wall built during the Ming Dynasty and represents the fundamental nature of the entire Great Wall. It was built on steep slopes, winding along the mountain ridges.

What was the Wall used for?

The "North Pass" of Juyongguan pass is known as the Badaling. It was used by the Chinese to protect their land in the past.

Shall we climb all the way to the top?

There is a cable car to take you to the half-way, and we will climb from there to the top. We will take the water and food with us, because it would be very hard for us to turn back just to get food and water. Anyway, we will come back around 3 p.m. and have a nice meal in a good Beijing-Duck restaurant located in Hutong.

介绍完毕,Nancy便带着这位客人向八达岭长城进发了。

从长城下来后,Nancy代表公司请他吃了北京烤鸭,之后又陪这位澳大利亚客人到798艺术区挑选了许多精美的艺术品。

Nancy的职场笔记本

一天下来,这位澳大利亚客人对Nancy的导游非常满意,他不但了解了中国文化,也感受到了中国人待客的礼仪和热情,Nancy虽然一身疲惫,但心里特别有成就感——没想到自己充当了一回介绍、传播中国文化的使者。回顾这一天的经历,Nancy在笔记本中记下以下内容:

1.在外企经常会接待外籍客户,因此多了解一些城市的特色景点对于接待工作是绝对有帮助的。

2.在介绍景点时,顺带介绍一下中国的历史和文化,帮助外国人了解中国。

3.做导游的tips:

●Arouse the interest of the people. 充分调动参观者的兴趣;

●Be exact with your introduction of the places. 介绍的内容要准确;

●Take good care of the visitors. 考虑周到,准备充分。
