Hey, I work at a city swimming pool as a lifeguard and we get quite a few Spanish-speaking families that come through with poor English. I have compelted two years of highschool Spanish and want to make a guide for the other lifeguards to point and maybe try to pronounce if they come across a non-English speaking patron. So, if anyone could help me out, give me suggestions, polite ways of saying things, etc. I would appreciate it. Below the Spanish version, (I tried...) are some things that if a few people could translate for me, and if anyone has some other suggestions, it would be much appreciated.
Hola. Trabajo a la piscina de la ciudad como un socorrista y hay muchas familias hispanoamericanas que vienen con malas aptitudes de ingles. Hace dos anos que estudio espanol en colegio y quiero hacer una guia para las otras socorristas para ayudar y comprender los clientes que no hablan ingles. Si usted puede ayudarme, darme sugerencias etc., agradeco.
It costs $1 for children and $1.50 for adults.
The men's dressingroom(lockeroom) is to the right and the women's to the left.
Please shower prior to entering the pool.
No food or drink is allowed inside the fence.
Please dispose of all feminine products and diapers outside in a trash bin. (for ladies restroom)
One moment, let me get someone that speaks Spanish.
Do you speak English?
I have this guide, look, I will point at what I mean to say because I cannot pronounce it.
The pool closes at 8:30pm.
The pool opens at 1:30pm.
Do not run.
Can I help you?
Please drink sodas outside the main gate.
Get out of the water now.
I am a lifeguard, do you need assistance?
Get off the rope.
If you cannot swim, please go to shallow water.
Would you like a basket for your belongings?
The weather is poor, we are closed today.
Now, some of these things are easy to say for me, but I don't know Ustead formal commands, how to be polite etc. I know mostly just tuear things. So, if someone could translate these into polite requests for me, that would be amazing. Also, if you have any other phrases you think would be useful, feel free to add in the English/Spanish :D
