Welcome back to Business English Pod for today’s lesson on discussing a budget.

Budgets aren’t just for accountants. Almost everyone in business has to talk about money and how to spend it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a manager with a million dollar budget or a field tech just tracking your expenses. You’ll be talking about money and budgets.

по факту, talk about budgets is everywhere. Turn on the news and it’s not hard to hear people discussing budget “cuts” or budget “reductions.” You can hear about governments with budget “deficits” and budget “surpluses.” Everyone’s worried about money, and in business, earning more often means spending less. These are the topics you’ll hear about today.

Прежде чем мы послушаем, let’s talk a little about словосочетания. Словосочетание - это группа слов, которые носители языка часто используют вместе. Правильное словосочетание звучит естественно, в то время как неправильное словосочетание звучит неестественно. Например, in English we say “budget cuts” to talk about lower spending. But we can’t say “budget slices” or “budget chops,” even though “slice” and “chop” mean “cut.” Those simply aren’t natural expressions.

В сегодняшнем диалоге вы услышите много полезных словосочетаний. Как вы слушаете, попробуйте выбрать эти естественные комбинации слов. Затем мы объясним, что они означают и как использовать их при подведении итогов..

You’re going to hear a conversation between two managers in the IT department of a large company and their boss. Kate and Harry are the managers, and Linda is the boss. They’re discussing the past year’s budget and how they spent their department’s money.
