First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||It is natural to tell someone “good luck” when a big change at work occurs, such as a transfer.|
|2.||If someone at work seems nervous about a transfer or another big change, try to say something positive such as “That sounds exciting”.|
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, Kei. What’s new?|
|B:||Hi, Bob. Actually, I’ve got some big news. I’m being transferred to our New York office.|
|A:||Wow, that is big news. I didn’t realize that.|
|B:||Yeah, I just found out this morning.|
|A:||How do you feel about it?|
|B:||To be honest, it hasn’t really sunk in yet, so I’m not sure how to feel.|
|A:||Well… New York! That sounds exciting. Good luck!|
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 encouraged a coworker during a big change?|
|2.||If so, what were the circumstances: a promotion, job transfer, or some other big change?|
|3.||Have you ever received encouragement from a coworker?|
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.
You are talking with your coworker about his/her transfer to another branch. Give him/her some words of encouragement.
(Your tutor will pretend to be your coworker.)
– That sounds exciting.
– Good luck!
