BEP 21 – Téléphoner: Ouverture d'appels et réception de messages

Une nouvelle version de cette leçon est disponible ici: BEP 21 UN – Compétences téléphoniques: Lancer un appel

This is an intermediate level Business English Podcast on making telephone calls in English. Some of the key language phrases we cover in this episode are: vous identifier et identifier l'appelant, en indiquant le but de votre appel et en laissant un message.

These telephone calls are about a contract between a large aircraft company and one of its suppliers, also known as a subcontractor. The contracts department from the client is calling to ask about a proposal it is expecting from the supplier for a new contract. Le temps est très court pour que toutes les propositions soient reçues, et jusqu'à présent, la compagnie aérienne n’a rien reçu de ce fournisseur.
