Witamy ponownie w Business English Pod. This is the second part of our look at answering the phone and taking a message. W tej lekcji, we’ll focus on taking a message.
Dzisiejsza lekcja znajduje się również w naszym nowym eBooku: Angielski biznesowy dla telefonowania. Ten eBook obejmuje niezbędny język dla wielu różnych rodzajów połączeń biznesowych, w tym postępowanie z klientami i reklamacjami, uzgadnianie i sprawdzanie zamówień.
W naszej ostatniej lekcji (BEP 69 A – Odbieranie połączenia), we looked at answering a call effectively. We heard an example of poor telephone skills and started in on a dialog that demonstrated good telephone skills. Dzisiaj, we’re going to continue with that dialog and look at how to take a message. Have you ever missed a telephone message? Or have you received a message that didn’t contain the necessary information? If so, then you understand how important it is not just to take a message, but to do it right.
We’ll look at ways to ask someone to leave a message, information that should be included in a message, and how to offer help. You will also learn how to acknowledge, check back and confirm information that a caller gives you.
Teraz, let’s rejoin Mark, who works for a company called Trivesco. He is calling a shipping company, Daneline, hoping to speak with someone named Sylvie Petersen. Sylvie is not there, so Mark has to leave a message with Amy, the receptionist.
