READING ALOUD

Let us read the dialogue. I will play Nico and you will play Lisa. After reading it once, we’ll switch roles.
READ

Nico: Good morning. My presentation is about our restaurant’s latest satisfaction rate and employees’ performance rate. Shall we start?
Lisa: Certainly. I’m interested to hear the rates we’ve had these past months as well as the performance rate of our employees.
Nico: Let me start by our satisfaction rate for the past 10 months. Based on our findings, it has increased by 50% since the year started.
Lisa: You’re right and now that this year is almost over, we’re expecting more customer demands due to the upcoming holiday season.
Nico: About that, let’s move on to our performance rate. So far, it is doing great, however, we’ve been receiving concerns from our employees since our satisfaction rate increased.
Lisa: What kind of concerns, Nico?
Nico: They want to expand our workforce to avoid overtime and exhaustion at work. If adding workforce is not permitted, employees are demanding for a salary raise.
Lisa: Good point. I agree with their idea. However, it is not just my decision to make. I will let the board members know about their concerns.
