Part A :

Good morning.

早上好。

How can I help you?

有什么可以帮助你的嘛?

Hello. I'm interested in renting a house somewhere in the town.

你好。我想在镇上某个地方租房子。

Right.

好。

Could I have your name please?

请问你叫什么名字?

Yes, it's Steven Godfrey.

好的,我叫Steven Godfrey。

And tell me how many bedrooms you're looking for.

告诉我你需要多少间卧室?

Well, we'd need four, because I'm going to share the house with three friends.

嗯,我们需要四间,因为我要和三个朋友一起合租。

Okay, there are several of that size on our books.

好的,我们登记本上有几套这个大小的房子。

They mostly belong to families who are working abroad at the moment.

大多房主是目前正在国外工作。

What about the location?

那地理位置有什么要求吗?

It'd be nice to be central.

最好是城中心。

That might be difficult, as most houses of that size are in the suburbs.

这可能是困难的,因为多数大房子是在郊区。

Still, there are a few.

不过,也有一些是在城中心。

What's your upper limit for the rent?

房租的上限是多少?

We'd like something around £500 a month, but we could go up to £600 if we have to.

我们想大概一个月£500左右吧,但如果逼不得已的话我们可以接受£600。

But we can't go beyond that.

但不能更多了。

Do you know how long you want to rent the house for?

你想租多久?

The minimum let is six months, as you probably realise.

你可能也已经意识到,最少要租六个月。

We're at college here for two years, and we don't want to have to move during that time if we can avoid it.

我们要在这里的大学读两年,如果可以得话,我们期间不想再搬。

Right.

好的。

And how soon do you want to move in?

那你什么时候想搬进去?

All our lets start on the first of the month.

我们的租赁都是从每月一号开始的。

Well, as soon as possible, really, so that means September 1st.

好的,越快越好,也就意味着九月一号。

Okay, let me have a look at what we've got...

好吧,让我看看我们有什么…

We have photographs of all the houses on our books, so you can get an idea of what they're like.

我们登记本上有我们所有房子的照片,所以你可以知道它们是什么样子的。

There's this one in Oakington Avenue, at £550 a month.

有一套位于奥金顿大道的房子,月租£550。

Combined living room and dining room, with a separate kitchen.

It doesn't have a garage, though you can park in the road.

Ah, we'd prefer to have one, if possible.

Then have a look at this house, in Mead Street.

It's got a very large living room and kitchen, bathroom, cloakroom...

How much is it?

It also has plenty of space for parking, and it's available for a minimum of a year.

We'll be too busy to look after it.

我们会很忙的。

Okay.

Then there's this older house in Hamilton Road: living room, kitchen-diner, and it has a study.

550 a month.

Well, what about this house in Devon Close?

嗯,那再看看Devon Close的房子怎么样?

That looks lovely.

看起来不错。

There's a big demand for houses in that area, so prices tend to be quite high.

大家那个地区的房子需求很大,所以价格往往很高。

But this one hasn't been decorated for a few years, which has kept the rent down a bit.

但这套房子几年没有装修了,所以租金才低了一点。

I think it would suit you, from what you've said.
