Intermediate Business Conversation: Giving Advice

READING ALOUD

Let’s read the dialogue. I will be Mr. Evans and you will be Ms. Watson. After reading it once, we’ll switch roles.
READ

 

Mr. Evans comes in and sees Ms. Watson who looks a bit sad.


Good morning, Ms. Watson. Is there something wrong? I think you should try to talk about it.
 
Good morning, Mr. Evans. Nothing much. I’m just thinking about resigning next month.
 

 
Why? If I were you, I would not do that. You are one of the best employees in the company. What seems to be the problem, Ms. Watson?
 
 
It’s about Mr. Newton. I don’t know how I can improve his performance. It is getting poor everyday.
 

 
I understand, but you need to think positively. It might be a good idea to let Mr. Newton observe everyone’s jobs in the office. Don’t worry. Everything will be fine.
 

 
I think that’s a good idea. I think I will also let him do easy tasks for now. I really hope his performance will improve very soon. Thanks, Mr. Evans.

READING ALOUD

Let’s read the dialogue. I will be Mr. Wilson and you will be Mr. Newton. After reading it once, we’ll switch roles.

会話文を読みましょう。講師がMr. Wilson、あなたはMr. Newtonのパートを読みます。読み終わったら交代しましょう。
READ

 

One Tuesday morning, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Newton are talking on which to prioritize on their work.


We only have two weeks left to finish your marketing research. Since I’m already helping you with it, we’ll be able to finish it this Friday. However, I also have other tasks to finish. If I concentrated on finishing them, we won’t be able to finish your research on time.
 
I agree. How about we prioritize my research in the morning and in the afternoon, we concentrate in doing our own tasks? That way, it will be easier for us to help each other since we’re on the same page. What do you think?

Hmm… I think it will work, but, shouldn’t you also prioritize in doing the presentation of our monthly sales goals? You’re going to present it tomorrow on our meeting and Ms. Carter will be there. I would like to help you but I already have lots of things to do.
 
Oh, right. I almost forgot the presentation. Don’t worry, I will finish it today. Ms. Watson agreed to help me.

That’s good to know. So, is everything good now? Do you think we can finish all our tasks on time?
 

I believe so. We just have to prioritize my research in the morning until it’s finished and then we can do our own tasks in the afternoon. We can do this!

PASSAGE READING

Please read aloud the following passage. I will check your pronunciation as you read.

READ

A Hero in a War

The Nazis invaded Poland in 1933 and took over the country. All Jewish people were forced to live in a certain area of the city known as ghettos. They were forbidden to leave ghettos, and anyone who tried to escape was killed. They suffered from hunger and got infected by different diseases. Because of that, social workers were assigned to monitor the situation. However, they were not allowed to help the Jewish people.

Irena Sendler, one of the social workers, helped the Jewish children escape. She knew the risk but could not bear seeing them suffering. She and other social workers decided to take the children out of the ghettos secretly. Some of the children were hidden in a box or bag. Others were put under a pile of clothes and vegetables. Irena was able to save 2,500 children. They were adopted by Polish families and were given false identities. However, a few years later, Senler got caught and was asked questions about the Jewish children. She kept her mouth shut despite all the sufferings she went through. In the end, she was able to escape with the help of her friends. After all the good things she did, she never considered herself a hero.
