    好 接下來 你要知道收件者住在哪裡

  • Where do you live? What's your address? You need to get the person's address.

    你住在哪?地址是?你要拿到他的地址

  • So in Canada, we always write the person's house number, the building number.

    在加拿大 我們通常會先寫門牌號碼

  • For example, 42.

    像是 42

  • Then we have the name of the street that they live on.

    再來是他們住的街道名稱

  • For example, Queef.

    像是 Queef

  • Sometime, we have avenue which is shorten to ave.

    街名有時候會是大道 簡寫為ave.

  • Sometime, we call a street a drive which is shorten to dr.

    有時候我們會用車道 簡寫是dr.

  • St. is the short form for actually street.

    st.則是街的簡稱

  • And then, we have this blud. Boulevard. Which is another word for street.

    再來還有blud. 是大道的另一個說法

  • So in north America, all of these symbols which represent for street. Okay.

    在北美 這些都是街道的意思 好

  • Maybe your person that you're sending to lives in apartment

    有時收件者可能住在公寓

  • or they do not live in an individual house.

    房子裡住的不只有他們

  • No problem. What you're gonna do is you're gonna put the apartment number.

    沒關係 只要加上公寓的號碼就好

  • So 42 is the number of the building or the house.

    所以 房子或建築物號碼是42

  • The street is Queef Dr.

    街名是 Queef Dr.

  • And this person lives in unit 2A.

    那人是住在2A室

  • or sometime it's call apartment.

    有些房子會分成上下兩戶

  • Or, sometime, people like to be fancy and call it a suite.

    有些人喜歡說套房(suite) 聽起來比較高級

  • But basically, these all means the same. They just tell you the number that the person lives in.

    基本上意思都一樣 就是房號

  • No problems. So up until this point this is gonna be the same with Canadian and American addresses.

    到目前為止美加的地址寫法都一樣

  • Now, this is how it differs. In Canada, we always have the cities that you're going to.

    接下來就不同了 在加拿大 城市之後

  • We do not have states in Canada. We have a province. And then you're gonna put the country.

    寫的是省 不是州 最後才寫國名

  • In the United States of the America, we're gonna put the city and the state.

    美國的地址 城市之後 是州

  • Basically, the city and the state. Sorry the province and the state are the same thing.

    基本上城和州 抱歉 是省和州 都一樣

  • Except, in Canada, we used the word province for territory.

    在加拿大 我們說省

  • And in United States of America, they use states.

    在美國 他們說州

  • Then after you're gonna put the country.

    最後就放上國名

  • So I have, for example, city is Toronto.

    舉個加拿大的地址 先寫多倫多市

  • The province in Canada is Ontario.

    再來是 安大略省

  • And the country is Canada.

    最後是國名 加拿大

  • If it was an American address, for example, you'll have Elizabeth would be the name of the city.

    這是美國地址的話 伊麗莎白就是市名

  • NJ. Stands for the state of New Jersey.

    NJ.代表新澤西州

  • And then we have USA. The United States of America. Got it?

    最後寫USA 美國 懂了嗎?

  • And then we have in Canada. What we called the postal code. The postal code will always have

    在加拿大 郵遞區號叫做postal code

  • One, two, three, four, five, six. Six characters.

    一、二、三、四、五、六,總共六碼

  • It will be always letter, number, letter number, letter, number. This does not change.

    組合都是字母 數字 字母 數字 不會變

  • This is once again, in Canada called postal code.

    這就是加拿大的郵遞區號

  • In USA, it's different. They call it zip code. A zip code. I don't know why.

    美國就不同了 他們說zip code 不知為啥

  • The zip code has one, two, three, four, five. Only five numbers.

    總共有 一 二 三 四 五 只有五個數字

  • So, very famous television show 90210 is actually the zip code. Isn't that cool?

    有個很有名的影集叫90210 就是郵遞區號 酷吧

  • Do you watch 90210? It's a zip code.

    你看過90210嗎? 那是郵遞區號喔

  • So differences between sending letter to or an address in America and differences between Canada.

    所以寄信時 美國和加拿大不同的地方

  • Two. Canada, we use provinces. United States, they use a state.

    有兩點 加拿大用省 美國用州

  • Canada, we use a postal code. And then, United States they use a zip code.

    加拿大是postal code 美國是zip code

  • So let's go to a little example of an envelope. Exciting.

    來看點信封的小例子吧 耶 開心

  • You gonna go to the post office.

    你要去郵局

  • And you're gonna have to buy stamp.

    買張郵票

  • You buy lick it, stick it, Done.

    舔一舔 黏上去 搞定!

  • So this is an example of a Canadian address.

    這是加拿大地址的範例

    收件者是Mr. Phil McKracken 地址是

  • 42, Queef Dr. apartment 2, Toronto, Ont

    安大略省多倫多市Queff路2號公寓之42

  • We like to shorten all of our provinces. To say, ont.

    我們省名通常都用縮寫

  • Then have the country of Canada. Then I have my postal code. Okay.

    再來是國名加拿大 再寫上郵遞區號 好了

  • The magic thing about the postal code or the zip code is this tells people exactly where's it going.

    郵遞區號很神奇 能讓人知道信該送到哪

  • Because sometime people have the really bad hand writing. And this might all be a blur.

    有時候 可能字跡太潦草 或是筆跡糊掉

  • But as long as you have the code or the number.

    但只要有寫上郵遞區號

  • It will be really really easy to get to the location.

    信就能輕易送到了

  • I recommend driving somewhere instead of sending a post in Canada.

    在加拿大 與其寄信 不如自己開車去送信
