Hi, Samantha. Do you have a minute?
Hi, Richard. Come in, please.
嗨，理查德 。请进 。
I've been trying to get hold of you all afternoon.
I was at the weekly managers' meeting. How are things?
Oh, splendid. I have some news. Good news?
哦，好极了 。我有事要告诉你 。好事吗？
Wonderful news... to me, anyway! I've been offered a job for three years as an assistant to Prof. Hayes from Birmingham University.
I'll join him in Mexico City. What do you think about that?
Wonderful, Richard! Just what you've always wanted, isn't it? Does it mean that you'll leave soon?
Next week. But before I go, I'd like to invite you out for dinner — just to thank you for all the help you gave me during my three-month research work here.
下周走 。但在我走之前，我想请你出去吃顿晚饭——感谢你对我这三个月的研究工作给予的全部帮助 。
Would tomorrow evening be a good time for you? We can go to the Shanghai Restaurant in Chinatown. Fine with me.
明天晚上合适吗？我们可以去唐人街的上海餐馆 。可以的 。
