First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||Begin the talk objectively, not subjectively.|
|2.||Don’t forget to greet business associates politely with expressions like, “Hello, welcome,” or “How are you today?” Also use “Please go ahead” to encourage the other side to speak.|
We will read aloud the dialogue below. Once we are done, we will switch roles and read aloud the dialogue again. I will check your pronunciation and intonation.
(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)
|A:||Hello. How are you today?|
|B:||Fine, thank you. And you?|
|A:||Great, thanks. Let’s get down to business, shall we?|
|B:||Yes. Please, go ahead.|
|A:||Certainly. To begin with, I understand you are interested in purchasing materials from us.|
|B:||That’s right, and for starters, I think we need to look at units and cost|
|A:||Sounds like a good place to start.|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
(Please review the mispronounced words and expressions from part B_2.)
Now, please answer the following questions. I will check if your sentences are complete and if the grammar is correct.
|1.||How often does your company participate in negotiations?|
|2.||Do you have any personal experience with negotiations?|
|3.||Do you think it’s important to begin negotiations with polite greetings? If so, why?|
Now, let’s review your answers.
(Please review your student’s answers by sending the correct answers in complete sentences. After that, ask your student to read aloud his or her corrected answers.)
Let’s do a role play with the given situations.
