英语应用文写作之感谢信

感谢信(Letter of Thanks)
 在国外,不论礼品大小,收到以后都要写封短信向馈赠者致谢。至于亲友、邻居的帮助和照顾,任何有礼貌的行为,以及写给你的每一封慰问信和祝贺信,你都应该写一封感谢信表达你内心的感激之情。
 要写好感谢信,“认真”是很重要的;如果只是草率地“应付了事”,那就失去了“感谢信”的意义。因此,一定要使感谢信给人一种不能忘却的印象。
 在收到礼物或得到别人的帮助时,感激之情总会油然而生,这时,坐下来写的感谢信,必然热情洋溢。要是在热情冷却之后再搜肠刮肚地去寻觅词语,那样一定写不出真挚热烈的感谢信。
 很难告诉你在感谢信中要使用哪些确切的语言,但要努力表达你的真实感情,下面的例子仅供参考。
(一)感谢赠送礼品 ( Thanks for the Gifts Received)
1.感谢赠送结婚礼品 (Thanks for Wedding Gifts)
在国外,结婚请柬发出之后,就会收到各种礼品,新娘应及时写感谢信,不要等到要写的信积攒太多时才开始动笔。
(1)新娘写给亲戚的感谢信 (The Bride’s Notes of Thanks to Relatives)
 如送礼的人已婚,感谢信应该写给他们夫妻二人,但是,也可以写给妻子,而在信中感谢夫妻二人。下面是新娘写给她表姐的感谢信。
                                               March 20, 2005
Dear Margaret,
 Thank you so much for the perfectly beautiful little clock you and Bill sent us! It’s one of the very nicest wedding gifts we have received.
 David sends thanks too; we hope you’ll come soon and see how lovely the clock looks on our dresser. You just couldn’t have made a better choice!
 With love from both of us,
                                               Yours,
                                                Helen
[译文]
亲爱的玛格丽特:
 您和比尔送给我们的那只小座钟很好看,非常感谢。这是我们收到的最漂亮的礼品之一。
 戴维也向您致谢。我们希望您们不久能来看看把这座钟放在梳妆台上是多么美观。您挑选的礼物好极了。
 我们两人都向您致谢。
                                                 您的,
                                                 海伦
 2005年3月20日
(2)感谢亲密的朋友 (To an Intimate Friend)
 
 在写感谢信时,最好提到具体的礼物,不要写:”Thanks for the beautiful gift,”
而应写到具体的礼物,如:“Thanks for the beautiful lamp”。在信中最好描述一下已经把礼品放在什么地方,何等好看等等。或者称赞送礼品的人在挑选礼物时独具慧眼,因为人们总是喜欢别人称赞他/她具有很高的挑选能力。
                                               
                                                March 27, 2005
Dear Li Li,
 Thank you so much for the traditional Chinese paintings you sent us. They are exactly what David and I want for our drawing room; but we didn’t think we’d be lucky enough to get them as a gift!
 David and I are delighted, Li Li. Thank you very, very much!
 We’re looking forward to seeing you at the wedding.
 
                                              Affectionately yours,
                                              Helen
[译文]
亲爱的李丽:
 非常感谢您送给我们的中国画。戴维和我本想买几幅挂在我们的客厅,而竟承蒙您赠送,真想不到我们会如此幸运! 戴维和我都非常高兴,非常感谢您,李丽!
 盼望您能来参加我们的婚礼。
                                           您亲爱的,
                                           海伦
2005年3月27日
(3) 感谢新郎的亲密朋友 (To an Intimate Friend of the Groom)
 接到新郎朋友的礼品后,也应该由新娘写感谢信。尽管新娘并不太认识新郎的这位朋友,感谢信仍要热情友好,但不必太长。
 
                                              March 27, 2005
Dear Bob,
 How kind of you to send Li Ming and me such a beautiful photo album! We’re delighted with it, and we just can’t thank you enough.
 Li Ming and I are looking forward to seeing you Saturday at the wedding.
 Thanks again for your wonderful gift!
                                        Affectionately yours,
                                        Wang Jing
[译文]
亲爱的鲍勃:
 您送给我们这么漂亮的一本相册,倍感亲切!我们很喜欢,对您不胜感激!
 我和李明期待着您星期六光临我们的婚礼!
 再一次谢谢您美好的礼物!
                                          您亲爱的

2.感谢圣诞节的礼品( Notes of Thanks for Christmas Gifts)
 接到圣诞节礼品后,不应例行公事地写一封草率的回信,简单地表示“谢谢”就算完事了。而应表示出对礼品的珍视,表达出你的真正感激之情。因此,在感谢信中可以写出礼品的特征,而这种特征又正是你所喜爱的,也可以说明这正是你想要得到的东西。还可以称赞所送的礼品挑选的好,有眼力。
(1)写给姑姑的感谢信( A Note of Thanks to an Aunt)
                                                Dec. 15, 2005
Dear Aunt Mary,
 What a beautiful Christmas gift you sent me! A fitted bag is something I’ve wanted for a long time, but could never get for myself.
 Thank you so much, Aunt Mary, I’ll have the bag for years and years, and I’ll think of you with gratitude and affection every time I use it.
                                            Lovingly yours,
 Ruth
[译文]
亲爱的玛丽姑姑:
 这是一件多么漂亮的圣诞节礼品啊!一只非常合适的提包,是我一直想买但又不可能买到的提包。
 非常感谢您,玛丽姑姑!这只提包我要一直用下去。我想, 每当用到它时,我就会产生对您的感激和热爱之情。
