BEP 21 – Telefonare: Apertura di chiamate e ricezione di messaggi

A new version of this lesson is available here: BEP 21 UN – Competenze telefoniche: Avvio di una chiamata

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: identificare te stesso e il chiamante, affermando lo scopo della chiamata e lasciando un messaggio.

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. Il tempo è molto breve per ricevere tutte le proposte, e così lontano, la compagnia aerea non ha ricevuto nulla da questo fornitore.
