A call from a buyer 客户来电

接电话时,由于无法看到对方的容貌、表情,只能听到对方的声音,因此对声音的敏感度就格外重要。对在外贸等部门工作的职员来说,接听外国客户打来的电话是家常便饭。有的人一听到话筒传来“Hello”的声音,常常会变得紧张,其原因一方面是怕听不太懂,另一方面是怕赶不上对方说话的阿速度,因而造成沟通不畅的情况。若想克服这种恐惧感,首先,必须要把“听不懂很丢脸”的念头丢掉才行。

当你赶不上对方说话的速度时,可以委婉的说:

I’m sorry I can’t follow you. Would you repeat it?

抱歉,我跟不上你。你愿意再说一遍吗?

I couldn’t catch you. Would you speak more slowly?

我跟不上你。你愿意讲慢一点吗?

万一周围环境太吵,以致于无法听清楚对方说话时,如果你说的是,Will you speak more clearly?(你能不能讲清楚点?)也许自尊心强的外国客户听来,可能会感到不高兴,因为用“clear“这个词,意思是对方讲话不够清楚,口齿不清。此时不妨改用以下说法,较为合适:

Would you speak more loudly, please?

我听不见你说的话。你愿意讲大点声音吗?

当你忙得不可开交,却接到一通冗长的电话时,可以用

Thank you for calling. I wish we could talk longer, but I have kept my visitor waiting.

谢谢你打来电话。我希望我们能谈一会,但我已经让来客久等了。

这样,既使对方了解到谈话应该结束,同时也不会显得没有礼貌。

我最初与老外通电话时,也十分紧张,可是越紧张越听不懂。这可能需要一段时间才能克服这种心理。另外,听不懂的地方一定要再问,如果电话里实在听不懂,可以跟客户说可否发邮件确认,以免造成误解。期待大家有接到任何人的电话都能应对自由的那一天!
