First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||When asking participants if they have any questions, you can say, “Now if you have any questions, I’ll do my best to answer them,” or “I’ll be happy to answer your questions.”|
|2.||People often feel nervous about asking questions in front of others. To show your appreciation for their input, you can say, “That is a very good question,” or simply “Thank you for your question.”|
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:||Thank you for coming today. Now if you have any questions, I’ll do my best to answer them.|
|B:||Yes, I have a question.|
|A:||Go ahead, Kei.|
|B:||Could you possibly clarify our strategy to make inroads into overseas markets? How can we best accomplish that?|
|A:||That’s a very good question. I think we’ll need to work closely with our affiliates overseas, and work on building a strong international sales network. And obviously we’ll need to develop cross cultural training seminars.|
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.||At your company, are staff given the opportunity to ask questions at the end of meetings and presentations?|
|2.||Have you ever had to field difficult questions from an audience?|
|3.||Do you think it’s important to thank people for their questions? Why or why not?|
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 in a meeting with other participants. Your teammate will ask you questions about online advertisement and you will answer them.
(Your tutor will pretend to be your teammate.)
