我们在选衣服的时候,一般都用尺码的简称,S;M;L,在这里要注意区分中号,Middle指的是空间或时间上的中间,而Medium是面积,体积大小的中等,所以应该用medium.

这些S码,M码,L码放到句子中应该怎么说?我们来一起看一个情景对话

 

Salesperson:

Can I help you?

需要帮助吗?

Gloria:

Yes, I’m looking for a sweater — in a size medium.

是的,我想找一个中号的毛衣。

Salesperson:

Let’s see…here’s a nice white one. What do you think?

我瞅瞅...这有一个白色的。你觉得怎么样?

Gloria:

I think I’d rather have it in blue.

我更想要个蓝色的。

Salesperson:

OK…here’s blue, in a medium. Would you like to try it on?

好的,这有个蓝色的,中号。你想试试吗?

Gloria:

OK…yes, I love it. It fits perfectly. How much is it?

好的,太好了,我喜欢这件。还挺合适。这件多少钱?

Salesperson:

It’s $50. It will be $53 with tax.

50美元,加税是53美元。

Gloria:

Perfect! I’ll take it.

完美!要这件了。

Language notes

Can I help you? or “May I help you?” is what a salesperson normally says to greet a customer.

Can I help you?和May I help you?是售货员常用的向顾客打招呼的用语。

I’m looking for a... here means “I don’t know exactly which one I want.”

I m looking for a...这里表示“我不知道哪一个是我想要的”

Size medium. Clothing usually comes in small, medium and large sizes. Some women’s clothing comes in number sizes, usually ranging from 2 to 16.

Size medium.衣服通常分小号,中号,大号。有些女性衣服是以数字分号的,通常是从2到16。

Let’s see… An expression used when a person wants to think something over to make a choice or decision, or to look for something.

Let s see...是当一个人想仔细考虑某个决定,或找某个东西的时候说的话。

I’d rather have it in here means “I don’t like this exact one. I would prefer it in a different color/size/material,” etc.

I d rather have it在这里表示“我不喜欢这件,我更喜欢别的颜色、尺寸或者材料等等”

Would you like to…? is a polite way to ask “Do you want to…?”

Would you like to...?是一种问别人想要什么的礼貌表达方式

Try it on means to test the fit or appearance of a garment by putting it on. “Try on” is a separable phrasal verb, so the object “it” goes between “try” and “on.”

Try it on的意思是通过试穿来测试它是否合身或者检查一下材质。try on是一个动词词组,所有宾语it在try和on中间。

How much is it? means “How much does it cost?” Notice that the main sentence stress falls on “is” in this question.

How much is it?意思是“这个东西花多少钱?”注意整个句子重心在is上。

I’ll take it means “I will buy it.”

I ll take it意思是“我会买这件”
