Деловой английский: как выразить собственное мнение?

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/0o1C6.jpg

Свернутый текст

Многим из тех, кто изучает английский язык или работает в международной организации, приходится (кому на уроках, а кому и в реальных ситуациях) выражать свое мнение по тому или иному вопросу. Кроме того, необходимо еще и аргументировать свою точку зрения, привести примеры и доказательства своей правоты. Наверное, в этом нет чего-то особенно сложного, подумаете вы. Скорее всего, так и есть,  но сегодня мы поговорим о выражениях, которые помогут нам правильно донести свои мысли до собеседника, особенно если приходится излагать свое мнение на письме несговорчивым партнерам или коллегам.

Все мы знаем, что в английском, как и в любом другом языке, есть разговорная речь, а есть более формальный стиль речи, который используется в деловом общении и в публицистике, и здесь недопустимы никакие сокращения слов или привычные любителям интернет-чатов словечки. Напротив, деловой английский подразумевает более официальные выражения, длинные предложения, полные формы глаголов и соответствующие правилам слова-связки. О них-то и пойдет речь.

Итак, если вы собрались выразить свое мнение по тому или иному вопросу в письме, то, по сути, вы собираетесь написать эссе (opinion essay). У каждого литературного жанра есть определенные правила написания, которые следует знать и соблюдать, чтобы правильно донести свои мысли до читателя.  Правила эти, конечно, едины для всех языков.

Типичное эссе состоит из:

вступления (англ. an introduction), в котором мы озвучиваем тему и четко определяем свою позицию;
    основной части (англ. main body), которая обычно состоит из трех параграфов. В первых двух следует изложить две различные точки зрения в поддержку своей собственной, подкрепив их примерами и доказательствами. В третьем параграфе излагается противоположная вашей точка зрения, которая также сопровождается примерами и доказательствами (возможно, такими, которые помогут понять, что ваше мнение – единственно верное). Каждый параграф нужно начинать с общего предложения, которое выражает основную мысль повествования;
    заключения (англ. a conclusion), в котором мы подводим итог всему вышесказанному, вновь формулируя свое мнение по данному вопросу, но уже другими словами.

Как видите, ничего сложного. Стоит также помнить, что при написании эссе следует использовать только настоящее время, а также использовать официальные слова-связки.

Для того чтобы выразить свое мнение, используйте следующие слова-связки:

    I believe – я считаю;
    I am convinced — я убежден;
    I suppose – я полагаю;
    I think – я думаю;
    In my opinion; to my mind – по моему мнению; по-моему;
    It seems to me that – мне кажется, что;
    I strongly disagree with – я категорически не согласен с;
    I am totally against – я категорически против;
    I completely agree with – я полностью согласен.

Для перечисления доказательств/примеров:

    To begin with – для начала; прежде всего; во-первых;
    Firstly – во-первых;
    In the first place – в первую очередь; прежде всего; сперва;
    Secondly – во-вторых;
    Last – и последнее.

Для представления примеров:

    For example/instance – например;
    Such as – такие как;
    Therefore – следовательно, поэтому;
    In particular – в особенности; в частности.

Для приведения дополнительных свидетельств:

    Moreover – кроме того; более того; сверх того;
    Furthermore – к тому же; кроме того;
    Also – также;
    In addition – в дополнение; к тому же;
    Apart from this – кроме того.

Для освещения противоположной точки зрения:

    On the other hand – с другой стороны; зато;
    Although – хотя; несмотря на; если бы даже;
    However – однако; впрочем; тем не менее; как бы ни; несмотря на это.

Резюмируя сказанное (промежуточный вывод):

    As a result- в результате;
    Consequently – следовательно; в результате; поэтому;
    So – итак; таким образом;
    As a consequence – как следствие.

Итоговые выводы:

    To sum up – подводить итог;
    All things considered – учитывая все обстоятельства; принимая (приняв) все во внимание;
    Taking everything into account – принимая все (вышесказанное) во внимание.

Используя эти слова-связки, вы легко сможете выстроить последовательный рассказ, осветить свою точку зрения и подкрепить ее необходимыми доказательствами. Кроме того, если вы только начинаете изучать английский и пользуетесь нашими советами, в частности читаете английскую периодику, то все эти слова помогут лучше понимать вам газетный и журнальный стиль написания статей.

Queen Elizabeth II Carries Cash Only on Sundays: Find Out Why and How Much

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/oMN2x.jpg
http://s3.uploads.ru/t/MmREg.jpg

Cash only! Queen Elizabeth II never carries money, a palace source reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly. Except for one day out of the week, that is: Sundays.

“She donates to the church collection basket,” says the source of the 92-year-old monarch, whose visage adorns every pound. And crumpled bills won’t do: “Her butler irons a 5-pound note into a little square by folding it until you can only see her face!”
What else does Her Royal Majesty carry?

Historian Sally Bedell Smith, who interviewed the reigning monarch’s friends and relatives for the 2012 biography Elizabeth the Queen: The Woman Behind the Throne, wrote that among the contents of the queen’s purse are mint lozenges, reading glasses, a fountain pen, lipstick, compact, and tissues. In addition, there is reportedly a portable book with a suction cap so that the queen can hang her bag discreetly under tables!

Though Queen Elizabeth may not have cash on her very often, she’s definitely not hurting for money. Her fortune is estimated at 340 million pounds. While that amount is nothing to sneeze at, according to researchers at the London School of Marketing, the long-reigning ruler isn’t quite as wealthy as David and Victoria Beckham’s family, who are estimated to be worth around 470 million pounds.

Prince George Just Received His First Official Birthday Present Ahead of His Big Day

http://sg.uploads.ru/t/bEs7r.jpg

Prince George, who’s turning 5 on Sunday, is receiving a very special gift!

The Royal Mint just announced that in honor of George’s birthday on July 22, it will issue a £5 (about $6.50) commemorative coin, available to the public for purchase. The coin features an image of St. George, the patron saint of England, and a dragon. According to legend, the dragon, who lived nearby St. George’s town, would attack the locals, so St. George, a knight, tamed and killed it. The coin, also embossed with the year 2018, is part of a Royal Mint annual set called The Progress of a Prince.

The legend of St. George and the dragon has been used on royal coins for centuries, according to the Royal Mint, and deliberately invokes courage and the triumph of good over evil as a tribute to the prince on his birthday. On Prince George’s second birthday, the Royal Mint issued a similar coin. Prince George is third in line to the throne

Prince George in the Royal Christening official portraits

Prince George has had a busy summer leading up to his birthday. Just last week, he attended the christening of his little brother, Prince Louis, and stole the show with his big grin in the official portraits. And just a few weeks before, he watched from the sidelines as his dad played in a charity polo at Beaufort Park and attended Trooping the Colour. He was also a page boy at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Queen Elizabeth Is Spending Her Summer Vacation *Here*

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/4FC1O.jpg
Even monarchs need a break. Lucky for Queen Elizabeth, school’s Buckingham Palace is out for summer.

Her Majesty is reportedly heading to her Scottish estate, Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, for her annual summer vacay today.

But the queen’s retreat won’t be all beach reads and garden parties. While on holiday, she’ll continue to work and read pertinent materials to the Commonwealth, which are delivered to the sweeping estate daily in red boxes. She’ll also continue to be the hostess with the mostest to fellow diplomats and will hold a few public engagements.

The main grounds of Balmoral Castle are currently still open for public visitors, so she’s likely getting some R&R in the Craigowan Lodge on the estate grounds until the main residence closes to the public on Tuesday, July 31.

Prince Philip is also expected to join his beloved at Balmoral, where they’ll remain until early October. It’s anticipated that, in accordance with royal tradition, other members of the family—like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle—will visit for some fun in the sun with Gan-Gan.

Um, not to be presumptuous, but where’s our invite?

Balmoral - a very special place

http://s5.uploads.ru/t/ESrTv.jpg
Balmoral Castle

Balmoral Castle (/bælˈmɒrəl/) is a large estate house in Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, near the village of Crathie, 6.2 miles (10 km) west of Ballater and 6.8 miles (11 km) east of Braemar.

Balmoral has been one of the residences for members of the British Royal Family since 1852, when the estate and its original castle were purchased privately by Prince Albert, consort to Queen Victoria. They remain as the private property of the royal family and are not the property of the Crown.

Soon after the estate was purchased by the royal family, the existing house was found to be too small and the current Balmoral Castle was commissioned. The architect was William Smith of Aberdeen, although his designs were amended by Prince Albert.

The castle is an example of Scottish baronial architecture, and is classified by Historic Scotland as a category A listed building. The new castle was completed in 1856 and the old castle demolished shortly thereafter.

The Balmoral Estate has been added to by successive members of the royal family, and now covers an area of approximately 50,000 acres (20,000 ha). It is a working estate, including grouse moors, forestry, and farmland, as well as managed herds of deer, Highland cattle, and ponies.

Architecture

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/7KLpt.jpg

Though called a castle, Balmoral's primary function is that of a country house.

It is a "typical and rather ordinary" country house from the Victorian period. The tower and "pepper pot turrets" are characteristic features of the residence's Scottish Baronial style. The seven-storey tower is an architectural feature borrowed from medieval defensive tower houses. The "pepper pot" turrets were influenced by the style of 16th-century French châteaux.
Other features of the Scottish Baronial style are the crow-stepped gables, dormer windows, and battlemented porte-cochère.

Ownership

Balmoral is a private property and, unlike the monarch's official residences, is not the property of the Crown. It originally was purchased personally by Prince Albert, rather than the queen, meaning that no revenues from the estate go to Parliament or to the public purse, as otherwise in accord with the Civil List Act 1760 would be the case for property owned outright by the monarch.

Along with Sandringham House in Norfolk, ownership of Balmoral was inherited by Edward VIII on his accession in 1936. When he abdicated later the same year, however, he retained ownership of them. A financial settlement was devised, under which Balmoral and Sandringham were purchased by Edward's brother and successor to the Crown, George VI.

Currently, the estate is still owned outright by the monarch, but, by Trustees under Deeds of Nomination and Appointment, it is managed by a trust.

Prince Charles shows off proud grandpa credentials as he puts unseen family photo on display

Hannah Furness,The Telegraph

http://s7.uploads.ru/t/qEv3A.jpg

His birthday exhibition styles him as “Prince and Patron”, a connoisseur whose childhood playing among the treasures of the palace led him to become a lifelong benefactor of the arts.

The Prince of Wales, who helped curate the Buckingham Palace exhibition in honour of his 70th birthday, has added one other important title to that list: proud grandpa.

The Prince has loaned his favourite art works, trinkets and family photographs to the show to help create a glimpse of life in his home.

Among them is a never-before-seen photograph of his cradling his firstborn grandson, Prince George, with his eldest son the Duke of Cambridge by his side.

The three future kings, rarely captured together in a photograph released to the public, look relaxed, with a baby George fast asleep in his grandfather’s arm.

The Prince of Wales and Duke both have open-necked shirts, in a casual family photograph likely taken at Clarence House or Kensington Palace in 2013.

Prince George, who turns five next week, leans into the Prince’s elbow, as the Duke, who would have been settling into life as a new father, sits protectively behind them both.

It is the first time such a candid family photograph of the three heirs together has been shown to the public.

The picture is one of a handful of images framed and put onto desks in the exhibition, along with personal ornaments and flowers in a design aimed at recreating the feel of the Prince’s own homes.

They include a photograph of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Cornwall dressed in red, and the Prince with his arm around his younger son in 2012 after “Captain Wales” passed his helicopter pilot training.

They join more than 100 pieces from the Prince’s private collection, the Royal Collection and work by up-and-coming artists for the exhibition, which marks his 70th birthday year.

Mounted without labels, the show instead relies on an audio commentary explaining how the small, densely-hung room was inspired by Zoffany’s Tribuna of the Uffizi.

The artwork is arranged on the walls of an octagonal room with tables filled with books by the Prince, vases and other decorative objects, while above are hung rows of paintings and other artworks, some with a tapestry as a backdrop.

The Prince and Duchess of Cornwall have been in to admire the finished show before it opened to the public. The Queen has not visited, and has already made the journey to Scotland for her summer trip to Balmoral.

Vanessa Remington, senior curator of paintings at the Royal Collection Trust, said: "It's a departure because it is not a standard museum display and the works aren't shown in isolation, they're shown in profusion very, very densely. "

(Tables) are dressed with a range of objects and those are intended to show or give a flavour of the interiors of the Prince of Wales's own residences because this is a very personal show."

Speaking about one of the highlights of the exhibition, Napoleon Bonaparte's red felt hooded cloak, the Prince said: "Since, as a child, I first caught sight of this cloak in the Grand Vestibule at Windsor, I have been fascinated by the sheer magic of the colour, the dashing pattern of the lining and the enthralling story of Napoleon himself which it conjures up.

"It is said to have been worn by the Emperor during his Egyptian campaign and was taken from his carriage after the Battle of Waterloo 15 years later."

He also tell visitors via audio guide: "I am very fond of the two preparatory oil sketches of my sons which I acquired from the artist, Nicky Philipps, in 2009.

"They were painted for a double portrait that now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery. Both are dressed in the regimental uniform of the Household Cavalry - the Blues and Royals - and are particularly good likenesses."

Prince George is celebrating his fifth birthday on a Caribbean island

http://sg.uploads.ru/t/CJOXH.jpg
There are some major perks of being a member of the Royal Family, like getting to wear tiaras, having the world's public adore you, oh - and getting to travel to incredible places.

According to reports, the Prince William and Kate Middleton have taken their Cambridge clan on the family holiday to beat all family holidays: they've gone to the Caribbean island of Mustique.

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/wmiXJ.jpg
While nothing has been confirmed by Kensington Palace - and is unlikely to be, given that the Royals' private family holidays are intended to remain just that - rumours are spreading like wildfire on Twitter that the family of five have gone to Mustique.

Hello!reports royal blogger Tea Time with the Cambridges received word that the family was spotted arriving at St Lucia airport, where they proceeded to board a private plane to an onward destination. Given Kate and William's previous love of Mustique as a holiday spot, the blogger assumed that's probably where they're off to.

If the sightings were correct, and the Duke and Duchess have taken a trip to Mustique with their three children plus Kate's family in tow, they'll be celebrating eldest son Prince George's birthday while they're out there. George turns five on July 22, and what better way to celebrate it than with a party on a Caribbean island beach.

http://sd.uploads.ru/t/5NjDc.jpg
Ahead of Prince George's fifth birthday the Royal Mint - which produces coins for the UK - revealed a commemorative coin issued in celebration of the heir-to-the-throne's half decade of life. The coin depicts St. George and the Dragon on one side, and has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth on the other. I mean, it's not exactly a toy train but I'm sure George likes it all the same.

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/dW3kj.jpg
If the Cambridges are on holiday in the Caribbean at the moment, it'll be the first time they've gone away as a family of five - as well as twelve-week-old Prince Louis' first trip abroad. Not bad for three months old - I'm in my late twenties and I can't say I've set foot in the Caribbean quite yet.

http://s3.uploads.ru/t/pyUiD.jpg
But if you're hoping for some pap shots of Princess Charlotte and Prince George building sandcastles on the beach, you'll be waiting a while. Mustique is a private island near Barbados, and it's apparently a no-fly zone. With just 100 villas for guests on the island, it's far from busy, so don't expect any sightings of the family on holiday any time soon. But that's fair enough, isn't it? They deserve some time out of the glare of the public eye.

This weekend marks Prince George's fifth birthday,
and his parents have released a new portrait of the little royal to celebrate.

Taken by royal photographer Matt Holyoak, who is also responsible for taking Prince Louis' christening photos, Prince George has been captured with the cheekiest grin. In the solo photo of Kate Middleton and Prince William's son, Prince George has the biggest smile, and poses while wearing a smart white shirt, with blue detailing, and a pair of shorts.

Holyoak has definitely captured Prince George's unique, spritely character in the shot, which oozes personality. It's also worth pointing out that Prince George is wearing the very same outfit he wore to his little brother's christening, suggesting that his birthday portrait was taken on the same day.

Kensington Palace announced the photo celebrating Prince George's birthday on Saturday, the day before George turned five, writing, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness’s fifth birthday tomorrow."

Also this week, Prince Charles opened a brand new exhibition at Buckingham Palace called 'Prince & Patron' in honor of his 70th birthday. The exhibition contains personal family photos, private paintings, and objects special to the Prince of Wales.

Notably, the exhibition includes a never-before-seen portrait of Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George posing together.

Amur tiger steps out with month-old cubs for first time - just in time for World Tiger Day

A tiger mum and her four month-old cubs have emerged from their zoo den together for the first time since they were born.

The endangered Amur tigers – previously known as Siberian tigers – stepped out into their enclosure at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo with mum Naya just in time for World Tiger Day on July 29.

Only 500 remain in the wild making it the third most endangered tiger species on earth.

Excited onlookers captured the special moment as seven-year-old Naya and her little ones rolled about and played together in the baking sun.
Family – mum Naya helped her cubs as they found their feet in the outside world for the first time (Picture: SWNS)

ZSL Whipsnade Zoo team leader Donovan Glyn said: “Seeing all four of these endangered tiger cubs out and about, playing in the grass together, is the perfect way for us to begin the summer here at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

“They are just as energetic and playful as one-month-old kittens would be, and we can’t wait to watch them learn and grow under their mum and dad’s watchful eyes over the next few months.”

The playful four were born only 16-weeks after Naya arrived at the Bedordshire zoo to meet her male mate Botzman.

As they found their feet, Naya spent days carrying her cubs around one by one to help them get used to their surroundings.

http://s5.uploads.ru/t/eZAMD.jpg
Dedicated – Naya is said to be a patient, dedicated mum
(Picture: SWNS)

Mr Glyn said Naya adapted to her new home at Whipsnade Zoo perfectly and her cubs seem happy and comfortable in their enclosure.

He said:

“Naya has been such a patient, dedicated mum, picking up each cub in her mouth, and giving them little one-on-one tours of the enclosure, to help them get to know their surroundings and build their confidence.”


The cubs are the result of the European Endangered Species breeding Programme (EEP) which works to breed rare animals at zoos across the continent.

Amur tigers were on the brink of extinction on the 1940s when their total population slumped to less than 50 worldwide but conservation efforts have managed to bring their numbers back up to 10 times the population of 70 years ago.
