First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||Be clear on who referred you by using phrases such as “I was referred to you by…” They may say “I have heard a lot about you.”|
|2.||You should express your request in detail and use polite and flattering language. Also, make sure to suggest the meeting times yourself and move your schedule to fit theirs as possible.|
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:||Hello, Mr. Tahn. My name is Will Yahiremi. I have been referred to you by Michael Ochanberry at Watson’s Sure-lock Loans. I would like to contact you as I have heard from Mike that you could offer me a career counseling. I am very interested in restaurant business and want to schedule a meeting this Thursday the 18th to talk about your restaurant, ‘Juan Tahn’s Nin Com Soup.’|
|B:||Hello, Will. Ah I see. Well, I’ve heard a lot about you and would lend a hand with pleasure. However, I am out of the office that day.|
|A:||Well, how about the 19th, say 3:00 p.m.?|
|B:||Sure. That sounds fine.|
|B:||Please let a waiter know when you arrive at the restaurant and he will direct you to my office.|
|A:||OK, thank you. I am very happy that Mike referred me to you.|
|B:||Yeah, I’m looking forward to meeting you. See you Friday, Will.|
