El cambio es una constante.. Nowhere is this more true than in business. Just look at the list of Fortune 500 companies from 50 hace años que. You might be surprised by how many of those well-known companies are now gone. So what’s the difference between a company that survives and one that dies? A lot of it is about how they manage change.
En esta leccion, we’ll listen to a meeting featuring three colleagues who are trying to figure out how to restructure their company. Durante la discusión, you’ll hear lots of useful expressions that we call “collocations.” And what is a collocation? Bien, it’s just a group of words that go together naturally. You heard me use the expression “restructure a company.” That’s a collocation. The words go together as one expression.
Native speakers learn collocations naturally. They simply repeat expressions that they’ve heard hundreds of times. If English is your second language, sin embargo, it might not come so automatically. Pero, by studying collocations, you can improve your vocabulary and sound more fluent at the same time.
