BEP 19 – incontri: Supportare la tua posizione (Parte 2)

Welcome to the second part of our Business English Pod series on how to support your position or argument in meetings.

Our friend Jack is giving an update on the Costa Rican project. Dan is against the idea, because as production manager, he doesn’t want to lose all his staff. The HR manager, Angie, also doesn’t want to lay off her US staff, and is worried about the difficulty of hiring workers in another country. Jack tries to defend his plan, but has difficulty supporting his argument.

Key Language: emphasizing, minimizing, supporting points & vocal stress.

In today’s Business English Podcast we’ll listen to business people discussing a delivery problem over the phone. Poi, we’ll review the language that is used to establish relationships, discutere il problema e giungere ad un accordo su una soluzione.
