925 English Lesson 39 – Expressing Doubt in English

YouTube video

In today’s 925 English lesson, we’re going to learn how to express doubt in English.

Have you ever been in a meeting when someone says something and you think “hmm… I’m not really sure about that.” You might be unsure about whether it’s true, or whether it’s a good idea. We call that feeling “doubt.” And it’s important that you are able to express doubt confidently and politely.

Now, if you’re a little bit unsure of something, you can use the expression I just used, and say something like “I’m not really sure” or “I’m not 100% sure.” Or you could say very directly “well, I have a few doubts.” Another way to express doubt is with a question, like “Are you certain that would work?” Just by asking the question, you are telling people you have doubts.

YouTube video

In today’s 925 English lesson, będziemy się uczyć, jak załatwiać sprawy w języku angielskim.

Pomyśl o wszystkich rzeczach, które wpływają do Twojej firmy i wypływają z niej. Może to być wszystko, od materiałów biurowych po surowce. Jak te rzeczy trafiają tam, gdzie powinny? Ktoś coś przygotowuje. I chociaż wiele rzeczy jest zamawianych online, nadal jest wiele ustaleń przez telefon.

Jak więc to robimy? Well, zaczyna się od uprzejmej sugestii lub prośby. W uprzejmych prośbach, często używamy słów „chciałbym” i „mógłby”. Na przykład, możesz powiedzieć „Chciałbym zorganizować dostawę” lub „Chcielibyśmy, aby coś zostało wysłane”. Oczywiście, „Chciałbym” można skrócić do „Zrobiłbym”, a „Zrobilibyśmy” do „My”. Aby użyć „może,”Można by powiedzieć„ czy moglibyśmy zaplanować dostawę?

YouTube video

In today’s 925 English video lesson, we’re going to learn some expressions for answering the phone in English.

Using the telephone is an important part of business. But the way we communicate is a little different from in-person conversations. We have some special expressions we use to answer the phone, ask for clarification, and get a callback.

At the start of a phone call, it’s a good idea to make sure the other person knows who you are. You can identify yourself in a few different ways. Besides saying “my name is,” we often use the expression “this is” before our name. But don’t try to use this expression in person. I only say “this is Tim” when I’m talking on the phone.
