First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||Before a meeting is closed, you should confirm there are no other agenda items or additional items that need to be discussed.|
|2.||When closing a meeting, use “So, that’s it then,” or “I declare this meeting closed.”|
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:||Just to confirm, are there any other pressing items that need to be discussed today?|
|B:||I thought we might address the sales training today, but maybe we don’t have time for that.|
|A:||I think that can definitely wait until the next meeting.|
|B:||I think you’re right, Bob. So that’s it then?|
|A:||Looks that way. I declare the meeting closed.|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
(Please review the mispronounced words and expressions from part B_2.)

|3.||Why do you think it’s important to officially close meetings?|
Now, let’s review your answers.
