925 English Lesson 41 – Phrasal Verbs for Beginnings

925 English Lesson 41 - English Phrasal Verbs for Beginnings

This 925 English lesson will be our first to focus on English phrasal verbs. And we’re going to kick off with some phrasal verbs for talking about beginnings.

If you’re not sure what a phrasal verb is, well I just used one. I said we’re going to “kick off.” “Kick off” is a phrasal verb because it has a verb – “kick” – and a preposition – “off” and when used together the meaning is different from the individual words.

There are hundreds of these little two-word combinations in English. We use them all the time. And their meaning isn’t always clear from the two words they’re made of, so it’s a great idea to study them.

925 English Lesson 40 – Expressing Support in English

925 English Lesson 40 - Expressing Support in English

In today’s 925 English lesson, we’re going to learn how to express support for an idea in English.

In business, it’s very important to be able to express your ideas confidently. That doesn’t just mean coming up with new ideas. It can also mean expressing what you think about other people’s ideas. In our last lesson, we learned how to express doubt. Today, we’re going to look at the other side, and talk about how to express support for an idea.

Now, sometimes you want to show moderate support, or just a bit of support. In this situation, you can use expressions like “I guess” or “I suppose” before stating your support. And when you state your support, you might use expressions like “I can see your point” or “That’s a good way to look at it.”

925 English Lesson 39 – Expressing Doubt in English

925 English Lesson 39 - Expressing Doubt in English

In today’s 925 English lesson, we’re going to learn how to express doubt in English.

Have you ever been in a meeting when someone says something and you think “hmm… I’m not really sure about that.” You might be unsure about whether it’s true, or whether it’s a good idea. We call that feeling “doubt.” And it’s important that you are able to express doubt confidently and politely.

Now, if you’re a little bit unsure of something, you can use the expression I just used, and say something like “I’m not really sure” or “I’m not 100% sure.” Or you could say very directly “well, I have a few doubts.” Another way to express doubt is with a question, like “Are you certain that would work?” Just by asking the question, you are telling people you have doubts.

925 English Lesson 38 – Making Arrangements in English

YouTube video

In today’s 925 English lesson, we’re going to learn how to make arrangements in English.

Think of all the things that flow in and out of your company. It could be anything from office supplies to raw materials. How do these things get to where they need to be? Someone is making arrangements. And although lots of things are ordered online, there are still lots of arrangements made over the phone.

So how do we make arrangements? Well, it starts with a polite suggestion or request. In polite requests, we often use the words “would” and “could.” For example, you might say “I would like to arrange a delivery” or “we would like something shipped.” Of course, “I would” can be shortened to “I’d” and “we would” to “we’d.” To use “could,” you might say “could we schedule a delivery?”
