Feifei
歡迎來到 BBC 英語教學的《地道英語》節目。大家好,我是馮菲菲。

Rob
And I’m Rob! Hey, Feifei, did you know they’re looking for a new team leader to manage and motivate our team?

Feifei
有升職的機會?Do you think I should apply for it?

Rob
Oh, no no! I was going to ask you if you think I’d be a good person for the position?

Feifei
Err, well… well, you’re sometimes friendly and you like to chat.

Rob
Great. The job description says they want someone with 『soft skills’ – and that means the ability to communicate and work well with other people. So I am basically a team player.

Feifei
Rob 說他是一個善於團隊合作的人。他還說自己有很多 「soft skills」 軟技能。他所謂的 「soft skills」 指的是有能力與他人溝通和良好地工作。Well, Rob, you’re certainly 『soft’ – not very strict – so nobody would listen to you!

Rob
Ha, right! Well, we’ll see about that. We are going to hear some examples, and no arguing!

Examples
We’ve got to build a team that works well together, so soft skills are vital if you want to work here.

The recruitment company are looking for someone with soft skills to fill the vacancy.

A positive attitude, self-confidence and being a good communicator are the soft skills we’re looking for in this job. Does that describe you?

Feifei
這裡是 BBC 英語教學的《地道英語》節目。我們正在學習 「soft skills」 這個短語。它主要描述一個人調動他人的積極性、與人溝通和協作的能力。But, Rob, I’m still not sure if you’ve got the soft skills for the new job.

Rob
Thanks for your vote of confidence!

Feifei
Actually, maybe I should apply for the new job.

Rob
Hmmm, let’s think about your skills… You’re bossy, you tell people what to do, and you take charge. Umm… they sound like 『hard skills’ to me.

Feifei
你說我有 「hard skills」 硬技能。那我肯定是這個新崗位的最佳人選了!So, Rob, pop outside the studio and make me a cup of tea.

Rob
Any chance to you could ask me using your 『soft skills’?

Feifei
No, Rob. Just do it. See ya.

Rob
Somehow I think she’d get the job! Bye.
