First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||When asking a colleague to help with your work, instead of using “Can you…?”, use “Would you…?”|
|2.||It is more polite to say “I’d really appreciate it if…”|
|3.||Remember that helping other staff with their tasks will be appreciated. It’s important to be a team player.|
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:||Hi, Bob. Do you have a minute?|
|A:||I’ve been working hard on this report, and I’d really appreciate it if you could help with it.|
|B:||Well, I probably can’t do it just yet, but I’d be glad to work on it later.|
|A:||Oh, that would be great. Do you think you can finish it by today?|
|B:||Yes, not a problem.|
|A:||Great. I will be stepping out later, so would you mind sending me an email when you’ve finished?|
|A:||Yes, I’ll do that.|
|A:||Thanks so much.|
|A:||Glad to help.|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
