BEP 42 – Inglés para reuniones: Abrir una reunión

This is the first in a two-part intermediate Lección de podcast de inglés comercial on opening and managing meetings. En este episodio, we’ll look at how to open a meeting. In the second part (BEP 43) we’ll look at language you can use to manage the discussion.

The listening takes place in the Singapore offices of Daneline, an international shipping company. Martín, the GM, is chairing a meeting with Sandra, David and Sam to discuss a budget shortfall. Shortfall means their budget has fallen short of expectations. En otras palabras, they don’t have enough money, so they need to make some cuts. To chair a meeting is to lead the meeting. We can say that Martin is the chairperson. So in these two episodes on opening and managing meetings, you’ll be learning language for chairing meetings.

Listening Quiz
1) What is the amount of the budget shortfall?
2) Why doesn’t Sandra have a copy of the agenda?
3) How many possible cuts are under discussion?
4) What is the first item on the agenda?

  1. Your site is really a good one. The contents are really pertinent. I have found a lot of the site on the business english, but I think yours is the best. Adicionalmente, your business mode is new and attractive.(a little pity, I cannot download the phrasecast by itunes, so I have to add it to my library manually ).

    Please, note that you attached the wrong study note to the podcast BEP42 INT Meetings. De hecho, the BEP41: study notes related to the previous Podcast BEP41SN Interview2.

  2.
