BEP 338 – 電話會議英語: 參加在線會議

商務英語播客 338 - 英文電話會議: 在線會議

歡迎回到 商務英語播客 今天關於參加在線會議的課程 英文電話會議.

很難誇大手機和筆記本電腦對21世紀業務的重要性. 您能想像沒有這些工具的工作生活嗎?? 可能不會. 如果您像大多數人一樣, 你的大部分 英語工作對話 在技​​術的幫助下發生. 這包括會議. 很多時候, 人們不能親自見面, 但實際上.

但是當您在會議中看不到其他人時, 突然很難聽到你的聲音. 你不能前傾或舉手示意你想說話. 代替, 您需要找到口頭交流的方式. 在很多情況下, 這也意味著要識別自己,以便其他人知道誰在說話.

在一個 英文在線會議, 您必須非常清楚自己在說什麼. 這可能意味著跳回對話早期的評論. 而且你必須清楚你在跟誰說話, 通過針對特定個人發表評論. 最後, 因為技術似乎從來都不是絕對可靠的, 您可能會發現自己為技術難題而道歉.

在今天的對話中, 我們會聽到一位名叫Gabi的經理領導與美國各地銷售人員的電話會議. 他們正在召開在線會議以計劃銷售會議. 參與者將使用不同的策略來有效參與.


1. 希瑟為什麼在會議期間道歉?
2. Why does Manuel say “Manuel here in KC” at the start of a comment?
3. 希瑟重新加入對話時, 她想再次談論什麼較早的話題?

BEP 337 – 電話會議英語: 召開在線會議

BEP 337 - Conference Call English: 召開在線會議

Welcome back to Business English Pod for today’s lesson on teleconferences and running online meetingsconference calls in English.

With today’s technology, people don’t have to be in the same room to have a meeting. We can connect with people around the world by phone or video chat apps like Skype. Amazing, isn’t it? Until it suddenly isn’t amazing, because people don’t know who’s saying what, others are having technical difficulties, and people are leaving and joining the meeting without anyone knowing.

A good conference call requires a good facilitator. Someone to make sure everyone knows who’s in the meeting and gives everyone the chance to speak. That means facilitating introductions at the start of the meeting and encouraging quiet people to share their ideas. 畢竟, it’s pretty easy to hide or be ignored during an online meeting.

Sometimes there are technical problems that can get the meeting off track. At those times, it’s best to ask someone else to try to solve the problem so you can continue running the meeting. And just like any meeting, the facilitator should be encouraging input from everyone, including those who join late. It’s your job to integrate those latecomers into the meeting so they can participate too.

在今天的對話中, we’ll hear an English teleconference led by Gabi. People from across the U.S. are joining the call to plan their company’s upcoming sales conference.


1. What does Gabi ask people to include in their short self-introduction?
2. What problem does Gabi ask someone to help solve?
3. What does Gabi do when someone joins the meeting late?

BEP 32 乙 – 討論問題解決方案的英語 (2)

BEP 32B - 討論問題解決方案的英語 2

歡迎回到 商務英語播客 for today’s lesson on discussing solutions to a problem during a 英文電話會議.

Have you ever been in a meeting where everyone just wants to complain about a problem? And maybe they criticize every solution that is suggested? 好, if that’s all you do, the problem will never be solved.

Discussing solutions is all about figuring out what might actually work. It’s about finding the best solution, even if it’s not the perfect solution. So you need to learn how to agree with people’s ideas, either strongly, or with conditions. 換一種說法, you might agree but only if something else can happen.

If you’re leading a problem-solving meeting, you’ll likely need to highlight the best solution that comes forward. Even when you have a pretty good solution, you might still want to invite more ideas. And whether you’re leading or participating in the meeting, you might offer to take the lead on implementing a solution. 在本課中, we’ll cover all these skills for discussing solutions.

在今天的對話中, we’ll rejoin a teleconference led by Jim. On the line with Jim are Jack, 和, 和安吉. They are discussing how to deal with the issue of paint fumes at a factory. They’re trying to find the best way to solve this problem.


1. What expression does Angie use to agree strongly with Dan’s idea?
2. What solution does Jim highlight as the best one?
3. What does Dan say he wants to do about the research on different types of paint?
