Talking to Co-Workers
What ever company you work for, you will have a boss or a manager. If you are a manager, you will have directs reporting to you. And in most cases, you will have to work with co-workers. This lesson will cover the English you need to know to speak to co-workers. I will also have a lesson on talking to the manager and subordinates. 无论你在哪家公司工作，你都会有一个老板或一个经理。如果你是一名经理，你将会有人向你汇报工作，在大多数情况下，你需要和同事一起工作。这一课将涵盖你需要知道的与同事交谈的英语，我还有一节课是介绍如何和经理和下属交谈。
When you talk with a co-worker, most of it is small talk. You can talk about your background, what school you attended, your major, and your previous work experience. So studying the English lessons along side the business section will help you for your daily English needs. However, I’ll have some sentences you can use when you are talking with a co-worker. 当你和同事交谈时，大部分都是闲聊，你可以谈论你的背景，你就读的学校，你的专业，以及你以前的工作经历。因此，在商业部分学习英语课程将有助于你的日常英语需求，然而，当你与同事交谈时，我会有一些你可以使用的句子。
If you miss a meeting, then you will need to ask a co-worker what happened during the meeting. 如果你错过了一个会议，那么你需要问一下同事会议期间发生了什么事。
“I missed the meeting. Can you fill me in?” 我错过了会议，你能告诉我吗?
“I had a doctor’s appointment so I missed the meeting. What happened?” 我预约了一个医生，所以我错过了会议，会议上发生了什么？
“I couldn’t make it to the meeting today. Anything interesting I should know about?” 我今天不能去开会了，有什么有趣的事吗?
“I missed the meeting. Was there anything new?” 我错过了会议，会议上有什么新东西吗?
Another time you talk with a co-worker is if the boss is mad or you don’t like the boss. But whenever you talk about bad things with co-workers, make sure you are talking to a friend. If that person is not a friend, then they might tell your manager what you said. 另一个是你跟同事聊，如果老板生气了或者是你不喜欢老板。但无论何时你和同事谈论不好的事情的时候，确保你聊天的是一个朋友。如果那个人不是朋友，那么他们可能会告诉你经理你说的话。
“Matt looks pretty upset right now. Do you know what’s going on?” 马特现在看起来很沮丧，你知道发生了什么事吗?
“Did something happen recently? Matt looks pissed off.” 最近发生了什么事吗?马特看上去很生气。
“I think Matt is mad about something. Do you know what it could be?” 我觉得马特因为某些事生气了，你知道是什么事吗?
Or if the manager only treats you bad, then you can ask your co-worker/friend if the manager treats them differently or the same. 或者如果经理只对你不好，那么你可以问问你的同事/朋友，经理是否对他们有不同或者一样。
“Matt talks to me like he is mad all the time. Does he do that to you?” 马特跟我说话像是很生气，他对你也这样吗?
“Does Matt talk to you like he is upset? Or is it just me?” 马特跟你说话看起来他不高兴吗?还是只是我?
“It’s not you at all. He talks to me that way too.” 根本不止是你，他也那样跟我说话。
“Matt is way too moody.” 马特太情绪化了。
“If he knew what he was doing, we wouldn’t be in this mess.” 如果他知道自己在做什么，我们就不会陷入混乱。
“What is wrong with Matt these days?” 马特这些天怎么了?
“He is having one of those days again. I think his manager just gave him a hard time.” 他又在经历这样的日子了，我认为他的经理刚难为他了。
“What do you think about our manager?” 你觉得我们经理怎么样?
“He gets too mad easily and he doesn’t really help us out that much. What do you think?” 他太容易生气了，而且他也不太能帮助我们，你觉得呢?
