… and I’m Neil. Hello!
(Rob opens the studio door)
Hi Neil! Sorry to interrupt. I just want to confirm that you’re coming to my party. Are you?
Yes, of course. Thanks, Rob. It will be a blast!
Cool. It’ll be great to have you there! I’ll let you get back to your recording. See you!
(The door opens again and this time it’s Finn)
Hi Neil! Just to tell you my presentation was a success. Your advice made all the difference!
Oh that’s great news, Finn. Always happy to help.
(Vera opens the studio door)
Hi Neil! I just wanted to say thanks for putting me in contact with Brian from the IT department. He sorted out my computer problems.
No problem, Vera. Any time you need a good contact, just ask.
Well, what can I do, I am a people person! In English, you say someone is a ‘people person’ when they are good at dealing with other people. They are helpful and have the ability to motivate people. People like me, Feifei.
這麼說如果一個人善於與別人打交道，你就可以稱之為“a people person 有人緣的人”。A people person 往往開朗樂觀，樂于助人，有親和力。你的確算是個 people person，我很喜歡和你搭檔做節目 Neil。
Let’s hear some examples of how this expression is used.
Callum is a people person. He gets along with everybody and would make a great manager.
You know, you should go to the party even if you don’t know anybody there. You’re a people person and by the end of the night you’ll have made lots of new friends.
錄音師外面怎麼圍了一大堆人？So many people outside the studio… Neil, who are they?
Oh, these are colleagues and friends I’ve helped out a bit recently.
But this is… it’s a crowd!
I told you: I’m a people person! Hello everybody! I’ll be there in a minute!
