      Lesson 082 Restaurants (2) 第八十二课 饭店(2)

      Cam:  Welcome to Chinese Studio everyone… I’m Cam.
      YJ:  And wo shi Yajie.  Cam, we’ve been talking about food and restaurants, and we’ve learned how to order many dishes.  
      Cam:  I’m getting better at that, but sometimes I need to call the waitress or waiter over to my table – right now I can only yell , because I don’t know what to call them!
      Yajie:  Let’s check out our Key Words of the Day.

      ********************

      服务员(fu2wu4 yuan2) waiter or waitress, napkin 餐巾纸(can1jin1zhi3)。我要几张餐巾纸, I’d like some napkins. 加一个糖醋排骨I’d like to add another spareribs in sweet and sour sauce. 加一瓶啤酒. I want to have another bottle of beer. All in today’s Chinese Studio.
      ********************

      Cam:  Yajie, I can be a messy eater… and the other day, I needed to get some napkins.  But how do I call for help, and then ask for some napkins?
      YJ: First you may call for the waiter or waitress. In Chinese it’s服务员(fu2wu4 yuan2), waiter, or waitress. 服务员(fu2wu4 yuan2) does not mention the gender. 
      Cam: 服务员(fu2wu4 yuan2). 
      YJ: 服务(fu2wu4) means service. 服, f-u, the second tone; 务, w-u, the fourth tone. Together it’s服务(fu2wu4).
      Cam: 服务(fu2wu4). 
      YJ: 员 (yuan2), y-u-a-n, the second tone. It suggests a person engaged in certain field of activity. 
      Cam: 员 (yuan2). 
      YJ: 服务员(fu2wu4 yuan2). 
      Cam: 服务员(fu2wu4 yuan2).

      Conversation1 :   
      YJ: Now Cam, there they are, and you can ask for some napkins. Let’s learn how to say napkin first. It’s “餐巾纸(can1jin1 zhi3)”.
      Cam: 餐巾纸(can1jin1 zhi3)
      YJ: 餐巾(can1jin1) is napkin. All in the first tone. 
      Cam: 餐巾(can1jin1). 
      YJ: 纸 (zhi3), z-h-i, the third tone means paper. 
      Cam: 纸 (zhi3).
      YJ: 餐巾纸(can1jin1zhi3) napkin. 
      Cam: 餐巾纸(can1jin1zhi3). 
      YJ: 我要几张餐巾纸(wo3 yao4 ji3 zhang1 can1jin1zhi3)。
      Cam: 我要几张餐巾纸( wo3 yao4 ji3 zhang1 can1jin1zhi3)。
      YJ: 几(ji3) means some, and 张(zhang1) is a measure word for the napkin, means piece of … 
      Cam: Wow, hold on a sec Yajie. In English we don’t say some pieces of napkin, we just say some napkins.
      YJ: I know. But that is the difference between English and Chinese. In Chinese we say “some pieces of napkin” 几张(ji3 zhang1) means some pieces of …
      Cam: 几张 (ji3 zhang1)。 
      YJ: and napkin is 餐巾纸。So together “I’d like some napkins ” should be 我要几张餐巾纸( wo3 yao4 ji3 zhang1 can1jin1zhi3)
      Cam:我要几张餐巾纸( wo3 yao4 ji3 zhang1 can1jin1zhi3)。

      Conversation2:

      Cam: Yajie, I don’t think I could ever eat enough Chinese food… so I’d like to add another dish, but how about spareribs in sweet and sour sauce? 
      YJ: Ok… Cam. You can say加一个糖醋排骨(jia1 yi2ge4 tang2 cu4 pai2 gu3). 
      Cam: 加一个糖醋排骨(jia1 yi2ge4 tang2 cu4 pai2 gu3). 
      YJ: 加(jia1) means add. 
      Cam: 加(jia1). 
      YJ: 一个(yi2ge4), one. 
      Cam: 一个(yi2ge4).
      YJ: 糖醋排骨(tang2 cu4 pai2 gu3), we learned it in previous show. 
      Cam: Yes, how can I forget this, 糖醋排骨(tang2 cu4 pai2 gu3).  
      YJ: 加一个糖醋排骨(jia1 yi2ge4 tang2 cu4 pai2 gu3). I’d like to add spareribs in sweet and sour sauce. 
      Cam: 加一个糖醋排骨(jia1 yi2ge4 tang2 cu4 pai2 gu3). So I guess I can put any dish after jia1 yi2 ge4, right? 
      YJ: yes, jia yi ge any dish that u want.
      Cam: Ok…I also want to have another bottle of beer. Can I say ”jia1 yi2 ge3 pi2 jiu3”?  
      YJ: it’s 加一瓶啤酒(jia1 yi4ping2 pi2jiu3) 瓶ping, means bottle。
      Cam: Oh, right, I knew that, 加一瓶啤酒(jia1 yi4ping2 pi2jiu3).

      Conversation3:

      Cam:  Okay…. I think I can remember all that.
      YJ: We’ve certainly learned a lot.  But before we go, we have to give you our question of the day.
      Cam:  How do you say, “I’d like some napkins” in Chinese? And we will see you tomorrow! 
      YJ: Zai jian.
