Ask a Teacher: Asking Someone About Their Job

名师答疑:询问或人的任务

Have you ever wanted to ask someone in English about the kind of work they do but were unsure how? Many cultures have ways of doing this.

你有没有想过用英语询问或人他们做的是甚么任务,但又不肯定怎样问?很多文明都有询问他人任务的办法。

Today on Ask a Teacher, our question comes from Azra in Turkey.

明天的名师答疑节目中,我们的成绩来自土耳其的阿兹拉。

Is it polite to ask people about their jobs? How can I ask someone without sounding impolite?

询问他人的任务礼貌吗?我怎样问才能不让他人认为我没礼貌呢?

Hello Azra and thanks for writing to us!

你好,阿兹拉。感激你写给我们!

In the United States, asking someone about their job is one of the most common things to do when meeting that person for the first time. But in some other cultures, this question may be considered disrespectful, so be careful.

在美国,第一次见到或人时,询问他的任务是最罕见的任务之一。但在其他一些文明中,这个成绩能够被认为是无礼的,所以要谨慎。

Although questions such as "What is your job" and "What are you" seem like the most direct ways to ask, we do not use them. The questions are structured correctly but, to Americans, they can sound impolite and unnatural.

固然像“What is your job?”和“What are you?”如许的成绩仿佛是最直接的提问方法,但我们不消它们。这些成绩的构造是精确的,但对美国人来讲,它们听起来既不礼貌又不天然。

Instead, we have a few ways to ask that sound more natural.

相反,我们有一些听起来更天然的询问办法。

When you meet someone in a social situation, and you want to know what kind of work they do, the most common question is this:

当你在社交场合碰到某些人,并且想知道他们做甚么任务时,最罕见的成绩是:

What do you do?

你是做甚么的?

It is a shorter way of asking:

这是一种更冗杂的询问方法,

What do you do for a living?

相较于你做甚么任务谋生?

Listen to both questions and some answers you might hear. Pay close attention to the pronunciation of "What do you do" as it usually sounds like "Whaddya do" when said quickly:

听两个成绩和一些你能够听过的答案。仔谛听“What do you do?”的发音,当说快时,它平日听起来像“what addya do?”:

What do you do?

你是做甚么的?

I'm a teacher.

我是一名师长教员。

What do you do for a living?

你做甚么任务谋生?

I work in photojournalism.

我从事消息摄影任务。

What do you do?

你是做甚么的?

I run an arts program for teenagers.

我担任青少年的艺术课程。

What do you do for a living?

你做甚么任务谋生?

I'm a musician.

我是一名音乐家。

Compare the question "What do you do" to "What are you doing" They sound similar, but the second is not work-related. It is asking what the person is doing right now, this minute.

将“What do you do?”这个成绩与“What are you doing?”比拟较。它们听起来很类似,但第二个与任务有关。它问的是这小我此刻正在做甚么。

Two other friendly ways to ask someone about their work are "What kind of work do you do" and "What line of work are you in"You can answer in the same way, saying something like, "I run an arts program for teenagers" or "I'm a musician."

别的两种询问他人任务的友爱方法是“What kind of work do you do?”和“What line of work are you in?”。你可以用异样的方法答复,比如说,“I run an arts program for teenagers.”或许“I’m a musician.”。

After the person answers the question, it is a good idea to ask one or two more questions, Listen to an example:

对方答复完成绩后,最好再问一两个成绩。听一个例子:

What do you do for a living?

你做甚么任务谋生?

I run an arts program for teenagers.

我担任青少年的艺术课程。

Nice! How long have you been doing that?

不错!你做这份任务多久了?

For about five years now.

大年夜约有5年了。

Where do you work?

你在哪里任务?

At the city's arts and culture division.

在本市的艺术文明部分。

Despite how common job-related questions are in social situations in the U.S., situations differ. Some people may find these questions too personal if asked too soon. If you're ever unsure, you can start a conversation in other ways, such as asking what the person does for fun in that city. Or, you can comment on something interesting or funny at the event or activity.

固然在美国,与任务相干的成绩在社交场合很罕见,但情况有所不合。假设问得太早,有些人能够会认为这些成绩太私家化了。假设你不肯定,你可以用其他方法开端交谈,比如问对方在那个城市做甚么风趣的任务。或许,你可以对活动中一些风趣的任务发表评论。

You should avoid the questions "What is your profession" and "What is your occupation" They sound too official, so we do not use them in friendly situations. You would probably only hear them during a job interview or in an office environment.

你应当防止“What is your profession?”和“What is your occupation?”如许的成绩。它们听起来太正式了,所以我们不会在友爱场合应用它们。你能够只会在任务面试或办公室入耳到它们。

Another thing to know is that, in American culture, we do not ask about a person's wages. Even some close friends and relatives do not discuss this subject. So, unless someone shares this information with you or asks for wage advice, avoid asking this question.

另外一件要知道的任务是,在美国文明中,我们不会问一小我的工资。乃至一些密切的同伙和亲戚也不评论辩论这个话题。所以,除非有人跟你分享这些信息,或许向你收罗工资方面的建议,不然不要问这个成绩。

And that's Ask a Teacher.

以上就是本期名师答疑的全部内容。

I'm Alice Bryant.
