毕业季在即,你的英语技能包准备的如何了?

今天先从邮件写作最最常规的一点讲起,那就是邮箱地址。邮箱大家都常用也都会写,但是有几个小细节你注意到过吗?


我们迅速的看一下:


1
Saying email addresses邮箱地址如何读

和别人用英文交流的时候如果对方问你邮箱地址,或者对方说出邮箱地址你需要记录,下面三点一定要注意哦!

1

remember that @ is pronounced ‘at’ and . is pronounced 'dot'. 

常用的就是@和. ,分别读作at和dot

比如:reservations@beachhotelbern.com应该这么读:  ‘reservations at beach hotel bern dot com’


2

_ in an email address is called ‘underscore’. 

_(下划线)读作underscore

比如teaching_ job@english_academy.id应该这么读: ‘teaching underscore job at English underscore academy dot I D’.

Note that it is not necessary to use capital J and A in Jeffery Amherst's email address. People sometimes write email addresses with capital initial letters (Jeffery.Amherst@britishcouncil.org). Sometimes it is all in capitals (JEFFERY.AMHERST@BRITISHCOUNCIL.ORG). However, most people write email addresses without capital letters (jeffery.amherst@britishcouncil.org).

另外一点提示就是,邮箱地址里面的人名其实没有必要首字母或者全部大写(如果大写了也没有错),全部小写就足够了。

Address books 邮箱通讯录

Email addresses appear in alphabetical order (A–Z). When names start with the same letter, look at the second letter. Here, all the names begin with F, but the second letters are: e i r u. These are in alphabetical order.


想在邮箱通讯录里迅速找出一个联系人的邮箱地址?那么请注意,一般通讯录是按照A-Z的字母顺序排列的,如果人名的首字母一致,则按照第二个字母排序。比如以下:


Name        Email address

Fellah        fellah@bqbaccounting.com

Fida                fhussein@arabianairways.org

Fred Aston      fred99@astoncity.biz

Fudail H        fudailh@aglant.net

Domain names 域名

Email addresses often include the name of the country that the address is from. This is the final two letters of the address. Here are some examples:

如果你在一个跨国机构,邮箱地址就会包含所在国,比如:


.af Afghanistan

.id Indonesia

.ma Morocco

.se Sweden

.uy Uruguay
