BEP 223 – 金融英語: 討論預算 (1)

歡迎回到商務英語播客今天的課程 金融英語詞彙 and 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.

實際上, 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.

在我們聽之前, 讓我們談談 搭配. 搭配是母語人士經常一起使用的一組詞. 正確的搭配聽起來很自然, 雖然不正確的搭配聽起來不自然. 例如, 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.

你會在今天的對話中聽到很多有用的搭配. 當你聽, 試著挑出這些自然的單詞組合. 然後我們將解釋它們的含義以及如何在匯報中使用它們.

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.

聽力問題

1. What does Linda want to examine first?
2. What does Harry say about the large one-time cost the department had?
3. According to Linda, what is finance concerned about?
