    上禮拜我們在《自信說英文》的課程有探討當你發生某件事

  • something happens to you and you're upset. You want to fix it. But we also

    使你很沮喪時該如何抱怨。你想要修正它,但我們也

  • need to understand the other side -- what to do when someone makes a complaint to

    需要理解對方的立場 -- 當某人投訴你時你會怎麼做?

  • you. Maybe your job is to fix problems and handle customer complaints. Or maybe

    也許你的工作是修正問題和處理顧客的投訴

  • something happens with your neighbor and they're kind of angry at you and they

    或是你的鄰居發生某事,然後他們對你很不滿

  • come to you with a complaint. What do you do to keep that relationship with your

    並且找上你抱怨。為了與你的鄰居保持良好關係,你要怎麼做?

  • neighbor? Or what do you do to keep a client so that they don't leave you for

    或是為了留住客戶,以防他們離開去其他公司,你要怎麼做?

  • another company? That is what we're going to focus on in today's lesson.

    這就是我們今天要在課程裡探討的主題

    所以今天我們要了解如何用英文且正確的方式去回應抱怨

  • English. And we're going to focus on four simple steps that you can use and follow.

    我們會聚焦在四個簡單的步驟,你可以遵循使用這些步驟在生活上

  • And I'll help you with the language that you should use -- language that native

    然後我會教你應該使用的語言 -- 本地人

  • speakers use every day to handle complaints in the best way. We're going

    每天使用的語言去處理抱怨最好的方式

  • to focus on how to listen, apologize, take action, and then follow up.

    我們將會探討如何去傾聽、道歉、採取行動,還有後續行動

  • But let's get a little bit more in depth with each one. Now the first step is to

    但是讓我們在更深入了解每一個步驟。現在,第一步是「傾聽」

  • listen. Listen to the person making a complaint and that seems easy right? But

    傾聽他們抱怨看似很簡單?

  • did you know that in English we actually have sounds and words that we use to

    但是在英文裡我們確實必須發出聲音或說話

  • show that we're listening? In some cultures it's perfectly normal to stay a

    代表我們有在聽,在一些文化中,當傾聽他人說話時要

  • hundred percent silent when you're listening to someone but not in English.

    保持百分之百的安靜,這是最好且常見的,但不適用於英文

  • Here are a couple of things that you can do to effectively show that you're

    這裡有幾件事情你可以有效地表達

  • really listening, that you really care about the complaint. You'll often hear

    你真的有在聽他們說話,而且你很在意他們抱怨的內容。

  • native speakers make sounds like mm-hmm, I see,

    你常常聽到英文母語者會發出語助詞像是 mm-hmm (恩 ... ), I see (我知道了 ... ),

  • yeah. All of those little sounds mm-hmm,

    yeah (你說的沒錯),這些語助詞 mm-hmm (恩 ... ),

  • yeah, I see those sounds indicate that we're listening to you or listening to

    yeah (你說的沒錯), I see (我知道了 ... ) 這些聲音表達出我們正在聽你說話

  • another person. And if those sounds or words are new for you, if they sound a

    或是聽另一個人說話。然後如果那些語助詞對你來說很陌生,如果它們聽起來

  • little silly, practice using them on your own. You can practice when you're by

    有點奇怪,自己要多練習使用這些語助詞。你可以自己與自己練習

  • yourself but those are really important, especially if you're talking to a native

    那些語助詞真的很重要,尤其是當你和英文母語者說話時

  • speaker to show that you're listening. Now since we're talking about responding

    這可以表示你有在聽他們說話。現在因為我們在講有關回應

  • to a complaint, you can use those sounds and words to

    抱怨的方法,你可以用這些語助詞

  • show that you're listening and then you can also use a few questions to help

    表示你正在傾聽,然後你也可以用一些問題去幫助

  • clarify the situation or make sure that you understand it. And again, this shows

    你釐清狀況和確保了解整個抱怨的內容。再說一次,這可以

  • that you really care, that you really want to understand the problem. For

    表示你真的很在意且想要了解問題

  • example you can say something like, "Could you tell me a little bit more about what

    舉個例子,你可以說「可以請你告訴我關於這件事更多的細節嗎?」

  • happened?" Or "Could you tell me exactly what happened?" And finally, "Let me see if

    或是「可以請你告訴我事情是怎麼發生的嗎?」,最後再說「讓我確認

  • I understand this correctly..." and then you would summarize what you understand

    我是否正確地了解整件事情發生 ... 」然後你要關於這個問題

  • about the problem. Now that you've listened and you understand the problem,

    做總結。既然你已經傾聽也了解問題

  • the next important step is to apologize. this can be the hardest step because

    下一個重要的步驟就是「道歉」,這可能是最難的一步,

  • maybe you don't think anything is really wrong, maybe you don't really understand

    因為你也許不認為你真的有任何錯,也許你不能真正地理解問題

  • the problem but this is also what your customer, what your neighbor or someone

    但這確實也是你的顧客、你的鄰居或是被冒犯的人

  • who is offended wants the most -- they want an apology. So here are a few

    最想要的 -- 他們想要得到一個道歉,所以這裡有

  • common ways that native speakers apologize when something's wrong: "I'm

    些常見的用法,當事情不對時,英文母語者抱歉會說

  • really sorry this happened to you." "I'm terribly sorry.

    「我很抱歉這樣的事情發生。」「我真的感到非常抱歉

  • We're going to fix this right away." "I understand why you're so frustrated and

    我們會馬上改進。」「我能理解為什麼你這麼生氣

  • I'm really sorry." "I know this is a huge inconvenience and I'm really sorry about

    我真的很抱歉」「我知道這對你造成非常的困擾,我真的對此感到很抱歉。」

  • that." And now that you've apologized it's time to take action. So depending on your

    在你抱歉完後就是「採取行動」的時間了,所以依照

  • specific situation this might be providing a refund to a client or fixing

    特定的情況給予客戶退費服務或是

  • something that's broken. Maybe you need to resolve a conflict and to take action

    維修壞掉的商品,也許你需要化解衝突,為了採取行動

  • you can do two things: one you can say exactly what you're going to do

    你可以做兩件事情:第一,你可以直接說名你會如何處理這件事情

  • for example, "I understand why you're frustrated. I'm sorry you're not happy.

    舉個例子「我能理解你的不滿,我很抱歉讓你感到不開心

  • We'll give you a refund right away." And there is the action -- we will give you a

    我們將會立即退費給您。」這就是一個行動 -- 我們將會立即退費給您

  • refund right away. Or we're going to schedule someone to come fix the problem

    或是我們今天會安排某人去修理這個問題

  • today. We're going to schedule someone to come tomorrow to resolve the issue. Or

    我們會安排某人明天去處理這個問題

  • you can simply say something like, "I'm going to fix the problem right away." "I'll

    或是你可以簡單地說像是「我將會立即處理這個問題。」

  • get that fixed right away." Now the second option is to ask a question if you're

    「我將會馬上處理。」現在第二個選擇是詢問,當你

  • not sure what the other person wants and this is more common when it's a personal

    如果不確定對方要的是什麼時,你可以詢問,在私人關係中,這是最常見的

  • relationship. Again imagine that you've broken a fence that your neighbor built

    再一次想像你弄壞了你鄰居的柵欄

  • or something negative happened and you don't know what they really want, you can

    或是有一些不好的事情發生,然後你不知道他們真的想要什麼

  • just ask. For example you could say, "What can we do to fix this?" Or "What would you

    你可以詢問,舉個例子,你可以說「我們該怎麼修理呢?」或是「你

  • like me to do to fix this?" And finally, after you have listened, apologized, and

    希望我怎麼做呢?」最後,在你完成「傾聽」、「抱歉」和

  • taken action, you want to follow up. After you fixed the problem, resolved the

    「採取行動」後,你必須有「後續動作」。在你修正好問題後,化解

  • conflict, replaced a product, or gave a refund, you want to make sure that your

    衝突,更換新的產品或是退費補償,確保你的顧客、

  • customer, your friend, your neighbor is happy, that everything is ok. And to do

    朋友或鄰居是開心的,一切都很好,為了達成這樣的結果

  • that you can simply send an email, make a phone call, go talk to your neighbor and

    你可以簡單地寄電子郵件、打電話或是直接和你的鄰居說話

  • ask them something like: "Did everything work out okay for you?" Did everything

    你對這樣的解決方法滿意嗎?新產品是否運作正常?

  • okay for you? Are you satisfied with how we fixed this? Are you satisfied with how

    你滿意我們的處理方式嗎?你對我們處理問題的方式滿意嗎?

  • we fixed the problem? And almost always when you ask those

  • simple follow-up questions your customer or your next-door neighbor feels so

    後續問題時,你的顧客或是鄰居通常都會很開心

  • happy because you care. You cared enough to ask if everything is okay. And with

    因為你真的有在乎他們,你夠在乎所以才會問他們是否一切都好

  • that you have four simple steps plus all the language that you need to respond to
