BEP 231 – Omówienie gospodarki (Część 1)

Welcome back to Business English Pod today’s lesson on discussing the gospodarka.

Listen to the news, the politicians, or your coworkers, and what do you hear them talking about? The economy. It’s up or it’s down. It’s good or it’s bad. Conditions are improving or getting worse. And it’s important to us because as the economy goes, so goes our business and careers.

But what do people mean when they say the economy? Is there only one economy? Dobrze, in this global age, the economy often refers to the world economy. But we also say the economy to talk about a specific country, whether it’s our own or another country we’re doing business with. W tej lekcji, you’ll hear about a few different economies and you’ll learn some common expressions used to discuss economic conditions.

Zanim posłuchamy, let’s talk a little about kolokacje. Kolokacja to grupa słów, których native speakerzy często używają razem. Prawidłowa kolokacja brzmi naturalnie, podczas gdy nieprawidłowa kolokacja brzmi nienaturalnie. Na przykład, in English we say “go online” to talk about using the Internet. But we can’t say “proceed online” or “travel online,” even though “proceed” and “travel” mean “go.” Those simply aren’t natural expressions.

W dzisiejszym dialogu usłyszysz wiele przydatnych kolokacji. Jak słuchasz, spróbuj wybrać te naturalne kombinacje słów. Następnie wyjaśnimy, co oznaczają i jak ich użyć w podsumowaniu.

We’re going to hear a conversation between David and Gordon, two expats working in Southeast Asia. David has been around for several years and is familiar with the economic situation. Gordon is new to the region and has recently completed a tour of Vietnam, Kambodża, i Birma.
