英语对话1:

tom和vivian是香港一家跨国公司的雇员。vivian被升职,要调到美国奥兰多的办事处。

vivian: hey tom, got a second?

tom: sure, what's up?

v: the company has offered me a new position. it's kind of a promotion.

t: hey! congratulations! that's great!

vivian问tom, got a second? 有时间吗?tom回答,what's up? 什么事?

vivian说自己升职了,promotion

v: well, yes...but the new position would require me to relocate...to our office in orlando, florida. v: i know you relocated here from chicago, so i wanted to get your two cents worth.

vivian说的relocate, 就是要搬到另外一个地方去工作。vivian说,i wanted to get your two cents worth. "two cents worth"是指个人意见,vivian知道sam是从芝加哥搬到香港来的,所以想听听sam的想法。

t: sure. well, for starters, i went the opposite direction, moving from the states to asia, so it's quite a different ball game. but i think the main thing you have to do is weigh the pros and cons.

v: i don't even know where to start. one "pro" is a higher salary.

t: that's always a pro. but there's a whole bunch of other factors to consider.

v: such as?

tom说,首先,for starters, 他是从美国搬到亚洲,所以情况完全不同,a different ball game. 他建议vivian考虑一下利弊,pro and con。涨工资当然是好事,那不好的地方有哪些呢?
