오늘의 Business English Pod에 다시 오신 것을 환영합니다. 비즈니스 영어 수업 의 위에 presenting a cohesive argument.
You may have lots of great ideas. But those ideas aren’t worth much if you can’t convince other people that they’re great. And that takes more than just excitement and energy. To convince others, you need to present a cohesive argument.
So what is a cohesive argument? 잘, it’s a series of logical reasons to support an idea. A cohesive argument helps you convince others of your position by providing a set of supporting points presented in a logical manner. If you do not provide a cohesive argument, then you’ll have trouble getting other people to support you.
A good argument might start by showing research and giving some context for the issue. Then you can talk about precedents for your idea, which means other times that it has been done successfully. It’s also good to think about what people might be concerned about, and address that before they even have a chance to bring it up. 그리고 마지막으로, you can tell people why your idea is necessary. With a cohesive argument like this, you’re sure to have more support for your idea.
