Exercise 6.3.16 Read and translate dialogues.

An Applicant’s Passport is not Available

A: Hello, is this the English Consular Department, please?

Secretary: Yes, it is.

A: This is Alov speaking. I would like to make some inquiries about the English visa.

S: Have you sent the documents to the Consular Department, Mr. Alov?

A: Not yet. The matter is, I don’t have the passport at present. It is with the Foreign office.

S: Then I connect you with our Vice-Consul, Mr. Alov.

Vice-Consul: Speaking.

Mr. Alov explains his situation.

Vice-Consul: As a rule, Mr. Alov, the Consulate does not issue visas without the applicant’s passport.

A: This is an urgent business trip to London, Mr. Vice-Consul, and the passport will be available from the Foreign Office within three days, I am sure.

Vice-Consul: In exceptional cases like yours we can issue a visa providing you send us all the necessary documents now, and the passport will be presented later.

A: Thank you very much, Sir. What documents do I have to supply now, except the passport?

V-C: A completed application for two recent passport-size photographs, and a letter from your company confirming your business trip to the United Kingdom.

A: I’ll deliver the documents to your office tomorrow afternoon.

V-C: And the passport, of course, as soon as you get it from the Foreign Office.

A: Sure thing, Mr. Vice-Consul. Thank you very much.

V-C: Good-bye.

A: Good-bye.

Congratulations on a Promotion

A: Good morning. Could I have a word with Mr. Brown, please?

B: Speaking.

A: Alov here, Mr. Brown.

B: Oh, hello, Mr. Alov.

A: I’m calling to offer you my heartiest congratulations on your promotion.

B: Thank you ever so much.

A: I guess you have other fish to fry and we won’t be having as many official contacts now, but I do hope that our productive cooperation will continue.

B: I hope so, too. It has always been a great pleasure for me to have worked with the people from your country.

A: Thank you. That’s splendid then. Please accept my best wishes for your future career. Good-bye, Mr. Brown.

B: Good-bye, Mr. Alov.

Booking a Plane Reservation

Clerk: Good morning.

Mr. Stain: Good morning. My name is Mr. Stain. I’d like to book a seat on the plane to Rome for Monday, the tenth.

Clerk: Yes, sir. Do you want to travel economy class or first class?

Mr. Stain: I’d like first class.

Clerk: I’ll check the time-table for you. Will you hold on, please? There is a flight leaving Heathrow at 11.55 on Monday and arriving in Rome at 13.30. It flies non stop.

Mr. Stain: That suits me. What time do I have to get to the airport?

Clerk: You’ll have to be at West London Air Terminal by 10.20 at the latest. The coach leaves for the airport at 10.30. But if you are going to the airport on your own you must be there before 11.30 and you can tick up your ticket at the airport booking-office.

Mr. Stain: Thank you. Good-bye.
