BEP 70 ADV – Слияния: Срочные плохие новости

This is the first in a three-part Business English Pod series that explores the use of many different language techniques in the context of a merger. Today’s episode focuses on vague, diplomatic language and probing questions. Vague and diplomatic language was introduced in podcasts BEP 24, BEP 51 и BEP 52, so you might wish to review those to refresh your memory.

К тому же, we’ll be covering probing questions, which we first looked at in BEP 64. To probe is to explore or investigate, so probing questions are used to gather more detailed and targeted information. And I should also point out that there are two speaking practices at the end of this podcastan action packed episode indeed.

For this series, we again visit our U.S.-based guitar manufacturer, which has a production plant in Costa Rica. В этом эпизоде, we find out that the company is merging with a larger guitar manufacturer. To merge is to join together. When two companies join together, we call this amerger.

The new owners want to cut costs, which might mean cutting jobs. Так, an important question in the mind of our old friend Jack iswho is going to be fired? We join Jack and his boss Jim, who meets Jack by chance in the hallway of the company headquarters.

Вопросы для прослушивания:

1. Who will Jack be meeting with after his chat with Jim?
2. What city might the Costa Rican plant move to?
3. Why do the new owners want to move the factory out of Costa Rica?
