Bienvenue dans le module d'anglais des affaires pour la leçon d'aujourd'hui sur Collocations en anglais related to implementing a plan.
Dans les affaires, good planning is important, whether you’re talking about a long-term strategy or a short-term project. But a plan itself means nothing without action. It’s not what you decide to do that matters, but what you actually do. And what you actually do with a plan is called “implementation.” Implementing a plan is all about deciding who will do what, and when they will do it.
Dans cette leçon, we’ll listen in on a meeting about how to implement a marketing plan. Pendant la discussion, you’ll hear lots of useful expressions that we call “collocations.” A collocation is a natural combination or group of words. Par exemple, I’ve already used the collocation “to implement a plan.” We don’t say “do a plan” or “activate a plan.” The natural expression is “to implement a plan.”
Native speakers use collocations like this automatically, and you can learn to use them as well. En étudiant Collocations en anglais, vous améliorerez votre vocabulaire et paraîtrez plus couramment. Pendant que vous écoutez la boîte de dialogue, essayez de sélectionner certaines de ces collocations et nous en discuterons plus tard dans le compte rendu.
Dans la boîte de dialogue, we’ll hear Carlos, Viv, Byron, and Marion. The small company they work for has just had a new marketing plan developed by a consulting company. Now they are meeting to figure out how to implement the plan.
1. Carlos asks for volunteers on one aspect of the plan. What exactly does he want the volunteers to do?
2. As there’s lot to do on the website, what does Byron need to do as the lead?
3. What is Carlos going to do in three weeks time?
