商务宴请全流程口语演练

发布时间:2022-10-08 文章来源:英耐企业英语培训 浏览次数:537次

商务宴请是一种常见的商务礼仪社交活动。宴请活动一般先发出书面邀约,这既是礼貌,亦对客人起到提醒、备忘的作用。如果是口头邀请,则要注意如下礼貌措辞:


 发出邀请 

口头邀请是一种半正式化的邀请方式,与正式的邀请相比,口头邀请更像是提出建议。下面是一些常用的说法。

Why don't you join us?

Perhaps you could join us?

It would be great if you could join us.

Would you like to join us?

注意,这里我梦使用‘could’和 ‘would’而不是 ‘can’和 ‘will’来表示礼貌。


当我们回复一个邀请的时候,首先要感谢对方,然后再给出答案。感谢对方的时候可以使用下面几种表达方式:

Thank you.

That’s very kind of you.

That sounds good.

这三个说法可以连在一起使用,那样就变成: Thank you, that’s very kind of you, sounds good.


 礼貌地回绝邀请 

在感谢过邀请人之后,你需要给出你的回答。接受或拒绝这个邀请,或者给一个你没法回答的原因。没有原因就拒绝别人的邀请是很粗鲁的,而且拒绝的理由应该是一个合理的理由。



那么怎样礼貌地回绝他人的邀请呢?我们可以用下面一些说法:

Unfortunately I have another engagement.

I’m afraid I have another commitment.

I can’t I’m sorry. Perhaps another time?


通过perhaps来提出开放式的邀请,这样的邀请让被邀请人没有接受的压力,下面是几种不同的表达方式:

Perhaps you’d like to join us later?

Perhaps you’d be interested in meeting us for breakfast?

Perhaps we could meet later in the week?


几种不那么正式的接受邀请的说法:

That sounds great.

Sounds good.

I’d love to.

I’d be happy to.
