First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||When explaining rules and regulations, use “We have to…” instead of “You have to…”|
|2.||Don’t use “must” when explaing rules; instead use “need to” or “have to.”|
|2.||Try to be polite and respectful when explaining rules to colleagues.|
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. Oh, do you realize there’s no smoking in the building?|
|B:||No, I didn’t. I’m on a short break and felt like smoking.|
|A:||I see. Well, we have to smoke outside in the designated smoking area when we want to smoke.|
|B:||I’m sorry. I didn’t see any ‘no smoking’ signs so I assumed it would be okay.|
|A:||That’s right. We don’t have any signs posted, but you can read about this rule in the employee handbook.|
|B:||I got it. Again, sorry. I’ll be sure to read the employee handbook later today.|
|A:||Okay. And yes, please smoke outside in the smoking area. It’s quite a pretty little spot!|
|B:||Definitely. Thanks for telling me.|
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.||Have you ever had to inform a colleague about a company rule?|
|2.||If so, were you uncomfortable being in this position?|
|3.||Have you ever broken any company rules?|
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.
Your colleague broke a rule. You need to correct him/her politely.
(Your tutor will pretend to be your colleague.)
– We have to…
– We need to…
