manager.

And?I?understand?that?none?of?you've?had?any?previous?experience?as?

kitchen?assistants.

Well,?you?might?be?feeling?a?bit?nervous?now,?but?most?of?our?kitchen?

assistants?say?they enjoy?the?work.

OK,?they?might?get?shouted?at?sometimes,?but?it's?nothing?personal,,

and?they're?pleased?that?they?have?so?many?different?things?to?do,?which?

means?they?never?get bored.

And?I'll?tell?you?straightaway?that?if?you?do?well,?we?might?think?about?

moving?you?up?and giving?you?some?more?responsibility.

Right,?well,?you've?all?shown?up?on?time,?which?is?an?excellent?start.

Now?I'm?glad?to?see?none?of?you?have?unsuitable?footwear,

so?that's?good?-?you?need?to?be?careful?

as?the?floors?can?get?very?wet?and?slippery.

Those?of?you?with?long?hair?have?got?it?well?out?of?the?way,

but?some?of?you?will?need?to?remove?your?rings?and?bracelets

just?put?them?somewhere?safe?for?today,?and?remember?to?leave?them?at?

home?tomorrow,?as they?can?be?a?safety?hazard.

Now?it's?going?to?be?a?busy?day?for?you?all?today?-?we?don't?have?any?tables?

free?for?this evening,?and?only?a?few?for?lunch.

Fortunately, we've?got?our?head?chef?back?-?he?was?away?on?holiday?all?last?

week?which?meant the?other?chefs?had?extra?work.

Now,?I'll?tell?you?a?bit?more?about?the?job?in?a?minute?but?first,?some?general?regulations.

For?all?of?you,?whatever?your?age,?there's?some?equipment?you?mustn't?use?

until?you've?been properly?trained,

like?the?waste?disposal?system?for?example,?for?health?and?safety?reasons.

Then?I?think?there?are?two?of?you?here?are?under?18 -?that's?Emma?and?Jake,?isn't?it?

Right,?so?for?you?two,?the?meat?slicer?is?out?of?bounds.

And?of?course, none?of?you?are?allowed?to?use?the?electric?mixer?until?

you've?been?shown?how?it works.

Now?you?may?have?heard?that?this?can?be?a?stressful?job,?and?I?have?to?say?that?can?be?true.

You'll?be?working?an?eight-hour?day?for?the?first?week,

though?you'll?have?the?chance?to?do?overtime?after?that?as?well?

if?you?want?to.

But?however?long?the?hours?are,?you'll?get?a?break?in?the?middle.

What?you?will?find?is?that?you're?on?your?feet?all?day?long,?

lifting?and?carrying,?so?if?you're?not?fit now?you?soon?will?be!

You'll?find?you?don't?have?much?chance?to?take?it?easy

when?someone?tell?you?to?do?something?you?need?to?do?it?straightaway

but?at?least?we?do?have?a?very?efficient?air conditioning system?compared?with?some?kitchens.

Now?let?me?tell?you?about?some?of?the?people?you?need?to?know.

So?as?I?said,?I'm?Joy?Perkins?and?I?decide?who?does?what?during?the?day?

and?how?long?they work?for.

I'll?be?trying?to?get?you?to?work?with?as?many?different?people?in?the?kitchen?as?possible,

so?that?you?learn?while?you're?on?the?job.

One?person?whose?name?you?must?remember?is?David?Field.

If?you?injure?yourself?at?all,?even?if?it's?really?minor,

you?must?report?to?him?and?he'll?make?sure?the?incident?is?recorded?and?you?get?the appropriate?treatment.

He's?trained?to?give?basic?treatment?to?staff?himself,?or?he'll?send?you?off?

somewhere?else?if necessary.

Then?there's?Dexter?Wills?-?he's?the?person?you?need?to?see?if?you?smash?a?

plate?or?something like?that.

Don't?just?leave?it?and?hope?no?one?will?notice

it's?really?important?to?get?things?noted?and?replaced?or?there?could?be?

problems?later.

And?finally,?there's?Mike?Smith.

He?is?a?member?of?staff?who?takes?care?of?all?the?stores?of?perishables,

so?if?you?notice?we're?getting?low?in?flour?or?sugar?or?something,?make?sure?you?let?him?know?so he?can?put?in?an?order.

OK,?now?the?next thing..

大家早上好,我的名字是Joy?Perkins,我是餐馆经理。

And?I?understand?that?none?of?you've?had?any?previous?experience?as?kitchen?assistants.

我明白你们中没有人此前有过做厨房助理的经验。

Well,?you?might?be?feeling?a?bit?nervous?now,?but?most?of?our?kitchen?assistants?say?they enjoy?the?work.

也许你们现在感觉有点紧张,但我们这大多数的厨房助理都说他们很享受这个工作。

OK,?they?might?get?shouted?at?sometimes,?but?it's?nothing?personal,

没错,也许他们有时候会被吼,但那并非是针对个人的,

and?they're?pleased?that?they?have?so?many?different?things?to?do,?which?means?they?never?get bored.

而且他们也为自己有这么多不同的事情做而高兴,那意味着他们绝不会无聊。

And?I'll?tell?you?straightaway?that?if?you?do?well,?we?might?think?about?moving?you?up?and giving?you?some?more?responsibility.

而且我可以直接告诉你们,如果你做得好,我们可以考虑给你升职,让你承担更多的责任。

Right,?well,?you've?all?shown?up?on?time,?which?is?an?excellent?start.

嗯,你们都准时到了,这是一个很好的开始。

Now?I'm?glad?to?see?none?of?you?have?unsuitable?footwear,

我很高兴看到没有人穿着不合适的鞋子,

so?that's?good?-?you?need?to?be?careful?as?the?floors?can?get?very?wet?and?slippery.

这很好 - 你们得小心,因为地板可能会变得非常湿滑。

Those?of?you?with?long?hair?have?got?it?well?out?of?the?way,

你们中有长发的都没有让头发碍事,

but?some?of?you?will?need?to?remove?your?rings?and?bracelets

但有些人需要摘下戒指和手镯,

just?put?them?somewhere?safe?for?today,?and?remember?to?leave?them?at?home?tomorrow,?as they?can?be?a?safety?hazard.

今天就把它们放在一个安全的地方,明天要记得把它们放家里,因为它们可能成为安全隐患。

Now?it's?going?to?be?a?busy?day?for?you?all?today?-?we?don't?have?any?tables?free?for?this evening,?and?only?a?few?for?lunch.

对你们来说,今天将是繁忙的一天 - 今晚都没有空闲的桌子了,中午也只剩下不多。

Fortunately?we've?got?our?head?chef?back?-?he?was?away?on?holiday?all?last?week?which?meant the?other?chefs?had?extra?work.

幸运的是,我们的厨师长回来了 - 他上周都在休假,这也意味着别的主厨得做额外的工作。

Now,?I'll?tell?you?a?bit?more?about?the?job?in?a?minute?but?first,?some?general?regulations.

接下来一分钟,我会告诉你们多一些关于工作的事,但首先得说说一些基本章程。

For?all?of?you,?whatever?your?age,?there's?some?equipment?you?mustn't?use?until?you've?been properly?trained,

你们所有人,无论年龄多大,有些器具只能在你们接受了适当训练之后才能使用,

like?the?waste?disposal?system?for?example,?for?health?and?safety?reasons.

比如废物处理系统,这是出于因为卫生和安全原因。

Then?I?think?there?are?two?of?you?here?are?under?18 -?that's?Emma?and?Jake,?isn't?it?

我知道你们之中有两位还不满18岁,是Emma和Jake对吧?

Right,?so?for?you?two,?the?meat?slicer?is?out?of?bounds.

对你们两个而言,切肉机是在可使用范围之外的。

And?of?course?none?of?you?are?allowed?to?use?the?electric?mixer?until?you've?been?shown?how?it works.

当然,也只有在你们了解了电动搅拌机怎么工作之后才能被允许使用它。

Now?you?may?have?heard?that?this?can?be?a?stressful?job,?and?I?have?to?say?that?can?be?true.

你们也许听说过这会是个很有压力的工作,我不得不说这可能是真的。

You'll?be?working?an?eight-hour?day?for?the?first?week,

第一周,你们每天工作8小时,

though?you'll?have?the?chance?to?do?overtime?after?that?as?well?if?you?want?to.

不过如果你想的话,你也有机会在一周后加班。

But?however?long?the?hours?are,?you'll?get?a?break?in?the?middle.

不过无论工作时间多长,你都可以在中间休息一下。

What?you?will?find?is?that?you're?on?your?feet?all?day?long,?lifting?and?carrying,?so?if?you're?not?fit now?you?soon?will?be!

你们将会发现自己一整天都是站着,搬搬抬抬,所以如果你现在还不够强健,那你很快就会的。

You'll?find?you?don't?have?much?chance?to?take?it?easy

你们会发现自己没多少机会放松

when?someone?tell?you?to?do?something?you?need?to?do?it?straightaway

当有人叫你做事时,你得立即去做

but?at?least?we?do?have?a?very?efficient?air conditioning system?compared?with?some?kitchens.

但跟别的厨房相比,我们至少有着非常高效的空调系统。

Now?let?me?tell?you?about?some?of?the?people?you?need?to?know.

现在我来告诉你们一些你们需要认识的人。

So?as?I?said,?I'm?Joy?Perkins?and?I?decide?who?does?what?during?the?day?and?how?long?they work?for.

我之前说过,我叫Joy?Perkins,由我决定一天中由谁做什么工作以及做多久。

我会尽量让你们跟厨房里尽可能多的不同的人一起工作,

so?that?you?learn?while?you're?on?the?job.

One?person?whose?name?you?must?remember?is?David?Field.

有一个人,他的名字你们一定要记住,他就是David?Field.

If?you?injure?yourself?at?all,?even?if?it's?really?minor,

you?must?report?to?him?and?he'll?make?sure?the?incident?is?recorded?and?you?get?the appropriate?treatment.

他接受过训练,可以对员工进行基本的伤情处理,或者有必要的话,他会把你们送到别处去。

Then?there's?Dexter?Wills?-?he's?the?person?you?need?to?see?if?you?smash?a?plate?or?something like?that.

接下来是Dexter?Wills?- 如果你们打碎了盘子之类的东西,他就是你们要见的人。

Don't?just?leave?it?and?hope?no?one?will?notice

不要不管不顾,希望没人注意

it's?really?important?to?get?things?noted?and?replaced?or?there?could?be?problems?later.

让打碎的东西被注意到并被更换是非常重要的,否则可能会有后续的问题。

And?finally,?there's?Mike?Smith.

最后,你们得认识Mike?Smith.

He?is?a?member?of?staff?who?takes?care?of?all?the?stores?of?perishables,

他也是咱们员工中的一员,由他照看所有易耗品的库存情况,

so?if?you?notice?we're?getting?low?in?flour?or?sugar?or?something,?make?sure?you?let?him?know?so he?can?put?in?an?order.

所以如果你注意到我们的面粉或糖或者别的什么东西变少了,要确保让他知道,这样他就能去订货了。

As?you?know,?we're?flying?first?to?Munich,?on?Monday?the?4th.

The?flight?is?at?11:30,?so?it's?too?early?to?have?lunch?at?the?airport.

I?suggest?we?meet?there?for?coffee?at?10,?which?should?give?us?plenty?of?time?for?breakfast before?we?leave?home.

When?we?arrive?in?Munich,?we'll?be?met?at?the?airport?by?Claus?Bauer.

Claus?works?for?a?tour?operator,?and?he'll?look?after?us?for?the?time?we'll?be?

in?Germany.

He's?already?liaised?with?the?managers?of?the?theatres?we're?going?to?visit,

and?he's?also?arranged?for?an?officer?of?the?National?Theatre?in?Munich?to?

show?us?round?the theatre?one?afternoon?during?our?stay.

Now?last?time?we?discussed?this?trip,?I?didn't?have?the?precise?cost?for?hotel?rooms,?but?now?I have.

The?normal?rate?at?the?hotel?where?we're?staying?is?150?euros?a?night?for?a?double?room.

I'd?hoped?to?get?that?down?to?120?euros,?but?in?fact?I've?been?able?to?

negotiate?a?rate?of?110.

That'll?be?reflected?in?the?final?payment?which?you'll?need?to?make?by?the?

end?of?this?week.

On?Tuesday,?the?day?after?our?arrival,?I?had?hoped?we?could?sit?in?on?a?

rehearsal?at?one?of?the theatres,

but?unfortunately?that's?proved?very?difficult?to?arrange,

so?instead?we'll?have?a?coach?trip?to?one?of?the?amazing?castles?in?the?

mountains?south?of Munich.

On?Tuesday?evening,?we'll?all?have?dinner?together?in?a?restaurant?near?our?

hotel.

From?talking?to?you?all?about?your?preferences,?it?was?clear?that?a?typical?

local?restaurant would?be?too?meat-oriented?for?some?of?you.

Some?of?you?suggested?an?Italian?restaurant,?but?I?must?confess?that?I?

decided?to?book Lebanese?one,

as?we?have?plenty?of?opportunities?to?go?to?an?Italian?restaurant?at?home.

因为我们在家的时候有很多机会去意大利餐馆。

On?Wednesday?afternoon?the?director?of?the?play?we're?going?to?see?that?evening?will?talk?to?us at?the?theatre.

She'll?describe?the?whole?process?of?producing?a?play,?including?how?she?

chose?the?actors, and,?as?the?play?we're?going?to?see?is?a?modern?one,?how?

she?worked?with?the?playwright.

Right.?Now?I'd?just?like?to?make?a?few?points?about?the?plays?we're?going?to?

see, partly?because?it?might?influence?your?choice?of?clothes?to?take?with?you.

The?play?we're?seeing?on?Wednesday?evening?is?a?modern?one,?and?we're?

going?to?the premiere,

so?it'll?be?quite?a?dressy?occasion,?though?of?course?you?don't?have?to?dress?formally. I?gather?it's?rather?a?multimedia?production,?with?amazing?lighting?

effects?and?a?soundtrack?of electronic?music,

though?unfortunately?the?playwright?is?ill?and?is?unlikely?to?be?able?to?

attend.

On?Thursday,we're?seeing?a?play?that?was?first?performed?last?year,

when?it?was?commissioned?to?mark?a?hundred?years?since?the?birth?in?the?

town?of?a?well-known scientist.

We're?going?to?see?a?revival?of?that?production,?which?aroused?a?lot?of?

interest. Friday's?play?will?really?make?you?think?hard?about?what?clothes?

to?pack,?as?it'll?be?in?the?garden of?a?palace.

It's?a?beautiful?setting,?but?I'd?better?warn?you,?there?won't?be?much?

protection?from?the wind.

On?Saturday?we're?going?by?coach?to?a?theatre?in?another?town,?not?far?from?Munich.

This?will?be?the?opening?of?a?drama?festival,?and?the?mayor?and?all?the?

other?dignitaries?of?the town?will?be?attending.

After?the?performance,?the?mayor?is?hosting?a?reception?for?all?the?

audience,

And?after?having?a?day?off?on?Sunday,?our?final?play?is?on?Monday,

and?it's?in?the?stunning?setting?of?the?old?Town?Hall,?which?dates?back?to?the?14th?century.

The?performance?marks?the?fifty?years?that?the?lead?actor?has?been?on?stage

and?the?play?is?the?one?where?he?made?his?first?professional?appearance,?

Right.?I've?now?almost?succeeded?in?finalising?plans?for?our?tour,?so?I'll?bring?you?up?to?date with?what?I?know.

好了,我已经差不多成功把咱们这次旅行的计划定下来了,接下来就就我所知道的给大家报备一下。

As?you?know,?we're?flying?first?to?Munich,?on?Monday?the?4th.

正如大家知道的,我们首先在4号,也就是星期一,飞到慕尼黑。

The?flight?is?at?11:30,?so?it's?too?early?to?have?lunch?at?the?airport.

航班在11:30起飞,太早了,所以不能在机场吃午饭了。

I?suggest?we?meet?there?for?coffee?at?10,?which?should?give?us?plenty?of?time?for?breakfast before?we?leave?home.

我建议咱们10点在机场见,喝个咖啡,在离开家之前咱们有充足的时间吃早饭。

When?we?arrive?in?Munich,?we'll?be?met?at?the?airport?by?Claus?Bauer.

到达慕尼黑后,Claus?Bauer?会在机场接我们。

Claus?works?for?a?tour?operator,?and?he'll?look?after?us?for?the?time?we'll?be?in?Germany.

Claus?为一家旅行社工作,我们在德国期间都是由他来照看我们。

He's?already?liaised?with?the?managers?of?the?theatres?we're?going?to?visit,

他已经跟我们将要参观的剧院的经理们联系过了,

and?he's?also?arranged?for?an?officer?of?the?National?Theatre?in?Munich?to?show?us?round?the theatre?one?afternoon?during?our?stay.

还安排了一位慕尼黑国家剧院的工作人员在我们行程中的一天下午带我们逛剧院。

Now?last?time?we?discussed?this?trip,?I?didn't?have?the?precise?cost?for?hotel?rooms,?but?now?I have.

上一次咱们讨论这次旅程的时候,我不知道宾馆房间的确切花销是多少,这次我知道了。

The?normal?rate?at?the?hotel?where?we're?staying?is?150?euros?a?night?for?a?double?room.

我们住的宾馆的正常价位是双人房每晚150欧元。

I'd?hoped?to?get?that?down?to?120?euros,?but?in?fact?I've?been?able?to?negotiate?a?rate?of?110.

我之前以为可以降到120欧元,但事实上我已经跟宾馆协商到了110欧元。

That'll?be?reflected?in?the?final?payment?which?you'll?need?to?make?by?the?end?of?this?week.

这将会在你们这周末需要支付的最终费用中体现出来。

On?Tuesday,?the?day?after?our?arrival,?I?had?hoped?we?could?sit?in?on?a?rehearsal?at?one?of?the theatres,

我本希望在星期二,也就是到达后的一天,我们可以去观看一家剧院的彩排,

but?unfortunately?that's?proved?very?difficult?to?arrange,

但很遗憾这被证明很难安排,

so?instead?we'll?have?a?coach?trip?to?one?of?the?amazing?castles?in?the?mountains?south?of Munich.

所以我们将转而乘大巴去慕尼黑南部山上的一座非常美妙的城堡游玩。

On?Tuesday?evening,?we'll?all?have?dinner?together?in?a?restaurant?near?our?hotel.

星期二晚上,我们在宾馆附近的一家餐馆一起吃晚饭。

From?talking?to?you?all?about?your?preferences,?it?was?clear?that?a?typical?local?restaurant would?be?too?meat-oriented?for?some?of?you.

从跟你们聊天知道的各自偏好来看,很明显对有些人来说,典型的本地餐馆过于以肉类为导向了。

Some?of?you?suggested?an?Italian?restaurant,?but?I?must?confess?that?I?decided?to?book Lebanese?one,

有些人则建议去意大利餐馆,但我得坦白我决定了订一家黎巴嫩餐馆,

as?we?have?plenty?of?opportunities?to?go?to?an?Italian?restaurant?at?home.

因为我们在家的时候有很多机会去意大利餐馆。

On?Wednesday?afternoon?the?director?of?the?play?we're?going?to?see?that?evening?will?talk?to?us at?the?theatre.

星期三的下午,我们将在晚上看的那场剧的导演会在剧院和我们进行交流。

She'll?describe?the?whole?process?of?producing?a?play,?including?how?she?chose?the?actors,

她会给我们描述制作一场剧的全过程,包括她是怎么选演员的,

and,?as?the?play?we're?going?to?see?is?a?modern?one,?how?she?worked?with?the?playwright.

因为我们要看的是一场现代剧,她也会介绍她是怎么跟剧作家合作的。

Right.?Now?I'd?just?like?to?make?a?few?points?about?the?plays?we're?going?to?see,

好了,接下来我要讲几点有关我们要看的剧的事,

partly?because?it?might?influence?your?choice?of?clothes?to?take?with?you.

部分原因是它可能会影响你们选择要带的衣服。

The?play?we're?seeing?on?Wednesday?evening?is?a?modern?one,?and?we're?going?to?the premiere,

我们将在星期三晚上看的是一场现代剧,而且我们看的是首映,

so?it'll?be?quite?a?dressy?occasion,?though?of?course?you?don't?have?to?dress?formally.

所以那会是个很讲究的场合,不过当然你们不一定要穿得正式。

I?gather?it's?rather?a?multimedia?production,?with?amazing?lighting?effects?and?a?soundtrack?of electronic?music,

我想那会是一个包含多媒体的制作,有着奇妙的灯光效果和电子音乐的配乐,

though?unfortunately?the?playwright?is?ill?and?is?unlikely?to?be?able?to?attend.

不过遗憾的是剧作家生病了,不可能出席。

On?Thursday?we're?seeing?a?play?that?was?first?performed?last?year,

星期四我们要看的剧是去年首演的,

when?it?was?commissioned?to?mark?a?hundred?years?since?the?birth?in?the?town?of?a?well-known scientist.

当时演出该剧是为了纪念这座城市一位著名科学家的百年诞辰。

We're?going?to?see?a?revival?of?that?production,?which?aroused?a?lot?of?interest.

我们将要看的是这出剧的新版演出,它引起了人们很大的兴趣。

Friday's?play?will?really?make?you?think?hard?about?what?clothes?to?pack,?as?it'll?be?in?the?garden of?a?palace.

星期五的剧目着实会让你们考虑一番要带什么衣服,因为它是在一座宫殿的花园里演出的。

It's?a?beautiful?setting,?but?I'd?better?warn?you,?there?won't?be?much?protection?from?the wind.

那儿的布景很漂亮,不过我得提示一下你们,那里不会有太多挡风的保护设施。

On?Saturday?we're?going?by?coach?to?a?theatre?in?another?town,?not?far?from?Munich.

星期六,我们会乘大巴去另一个城市的一座剧院,离慕尼黑不远。

This?will?be?the?opening?of?a?drama?festival,?and?the?mayor?and?all?the?other?dignitaries?of?the town?will?be?attending.

那里将会有一个戏剧节的开幕演出,市长和市内的所有高官都会参加。

After?the?performance,?the?mayor?is?hosting?a?reception?for?all?the?audience,

演出过后,市长会为所有的观众举行一个招待会,

and?there'll?be?a?band?playing?traditional?music?of?the?region.

届时将会有乐队演奏该地区的传统音乐。

And?after?having?a?day?off?on?Sunday,?our?final?play?is?on?Monday,

星期天休息一天后,我们的最后一场剧是在星期一,

and?it's?in?the?stunning?setting?of?the?old?Town?Hall,?which?dates?back?to?the?14th?century.

这场剧是在老市政厅的绝美布景下演出的,老市政厅的历史可以追溯到14世纪。

The?performance?marks?the?fifty?years?that?the?lead?actor?has?been?on?stage,

这场演出是该剧男主角登台表演50周年纪念,

specialised?holidays we?offer?at?BC?travel.

Now,?the?travel?business?is?very?competitive?and?it's?important?to?be?aware?of?how?the market's?changing?and?developing.

In?term?of?age?groups,?the?over -65s?are?an?important?market,?and?one?that's?increasing?steadily year?on?year.

The?fewest?holidays?are?taken?by?the?31?to?42-year-olds,?and?that?figure?shows?no?sign?of rising.

The?biggest?market?at?present?is?still?the?youngest?group,?the?16?to?30s,

but?this?group's?also?seen?the?biggest?drop?over?the?last?few?years,

whereas?there's?a?noticeable?growth?in?the?number?of?holidays?taken?by?55?to?64-year-olds.

As?far?as?the?43?to?54-year-olds?are?concerned,?bookings?there?are?steady,?but?I?have?to?say we?haven't?seen?the?increase?we?expected.

One?trend?we're?noticing?with?nearly?all?age?groups?is

the?growing?popularity?of?holidays?in?which?clients?do?some?kind?of?

specialised?activity.

I'm?not?talking?here?about?adventure?holidays,

where?clients?take?part?in?high risk?activities?like?white?water?rafting?just?for?the?thrill?of?it.

Activity?holidays?usually?involve?rather?less?high-risk?sports,?or?things?like?art?and?music.

They're?not?necessarily?cheaper?than?ordinary?holidays,?often?the?opposite,?in?fact.

But?they?do?often?take?place?outside?the?main?tourist?centres,

which?gives?an?opportunity?for?clients?to?find?out?more?about?the?local?people?and?customs,

and?many?says?this?is?one?of?the?most?positive?features?of?these?

In?this?session?in?your?training?day?we're?going?to?look?at?some?of?the?more?specialised?holidays we?offer?at?BC?travel.

在培训日的讲座中,我们会关注一些?BC旅游公司提供的定制假期服务。

Now,?the?travel?business?is?very?competitive?and?it's?important?to?be?aware?of?how?the market's?changing?and?developing.

时下的旅游业竞争十分激烈,因此知道市场如何变化和发展是很重要的。

In?term?of?age?groups,?the?over-65s?are?an?important?market,?and?one?that's?increasing?steadily year?on?year.

就年龄层来说,65岁以上人群是一个重要市场,这一年龄层的业务每年都稳定增长。

The?fewest?holidays?are?taken?by?the?31?to?42-year-olds,?and?that?figure?shows?no?sign?of rising.

度假最少的人群在31岁至42岁之间,而且该年龄层的业务数字没有增长的迹象。

The?biggest?market?at?present?is?still?the?youngest?group,?the?16?to?30s,

目前最大的市场仍然是最年轻的群体,即16岁至30岁的人群,

but?this?group's?also?seen?the?biggest?drop?over?the?last?few?years,

但是这一群体在过去的几年里也经历了最大的跌幅,

whereas?there's?a?noticeable?growth?in?the?number?of?holidays?taken?by?55?to?64-year-olds.

而55岁至64岁人群的度假时间却显著提升。

As?far?as?the?43?to?54-year-olds?are?concerned,?bookings?there?are?steady,?but?I?have?to?say we?haven't?seen?the?increase?we?expected.

至于43岁至54岁的人群,预订的数量很稳定,但我不得不说没有出现我们预期的增长。

One?trend?we're?noticing?with?nearly?all?age?groups?is

就几乎所有年龄层而言,我们注意到一个趋势:

the?growing?popularity?of?holidays?in?which?clients?do?some?kind?of?specialised?activity.

客户能在其中参与一些特别活动的假期越来越受欢迎。

I'm?not?talking?here?about?adventure?holidays,

我说的不是那种探险之旅,

where?clients?take?part?in?high-risk?activities?like?white?water?rafting?just?for?the?thrill?of?it.

在其中客户仅仅为了刺激参加一些诸如漂流的高风险活动。

Activity?holidays?usually?involve?rather?less?high-risk?sports,?or?things?like?art?and?music.

特别活动假期通常包括一些较低风险运动,或艺术和音乐之类的东西。

They're?not?necessarily?cheaper?than?ordinary?holidays,?often?the?opposite,?in?fact.

这种假期并不一定比普通的假期便宜,事实上,通常恰恰相反。

But?they?do?often?take?place?outside?the?main?tourist?centres,

但这种假期通常不是在主要的旅游中心度过的,

which?gives?an?opportunity?for?clients?to?find?out?more?about?the?local?people?and?customs,

这就给了客户体会当地风土民俗的机会,

and?many?says?this?is?one?of?the?most?positive?features?of?these?holidays.

很多人说这也是这类假期最正面的特点之一。

Of?course,?they?offer?the?chance?to?develop?a?new?skill?or?talent,?but?clients?often?say?that?more than?this,

当然,这类假期也给人们发展新技能、新才能提供了机会,但客户常说相较于此,

it's?the?chance?to?create?lasting?relationships?with?other?like-minded?people?that's?the?main draw.

同其他志趣相投的人建立持久关系的机会才是其主要的吸引力。

Let?me?give?you?some?examples?of?BC?Travel?activity?holidays.

另外还有5位将会在今年加入我们,这样我们就能在每个中心开更多的班级了。

As?far?as?cooking?holidays?are?concerned,

就烹饪假期而言,

I?know?a?lot?of?agents?offer?holidays?where?clients?cook?recipes?related?to?one?particular country,

我知道在很多机构提供的假期服务中,客户只是做某个特定国家的菜,

usually?the?one?they're?staying?in,?but?we?focus?on?dishes?from?a?great?many?different?ones.

通常是他们度假所在的国家,但我们则关注来自更多不同国家的美食。

Apart?from?that?you'll?find?the?usual?emphasis?on?good?quality,?organic?ingredients

除此之外,你会发现我们的重点通常是在优质、有机的原料上,

that's?more?or?less?a?given?nowadays?-?and?there?are?generally?some?meat-free?recipes included.

这或多或少是理所应当的事,此外该假期还包含了无肉食谱。

Our?photography?holidays?take?place?in?a?wide?range?of?countries?from?Iceland?to?Vietnam,

我们的摄影假期在很多不同的国家开展,从冰岛到越南,

and?clients?have?the?opportunity?to?see?some?stunning?scenery.

而那些走入时尚设计业职场的毕业生们正买下大量最近建成的公寓,

to?replace?the?small?houses?where?the?market?workers?used?to?live.

这些公寓取代了市场工人过去住的小房子。

The?narrow?old?side?streets?are?great?places?for?finding?original?pictures,?

jewellery?and ceramics

狭窄的古老小巷是发现原创照片、珠宝和瓷器的好地方,
