BEP 74 ADV – 成语: 商业就是战争 (部分 2)

This is the second in a two-part Business English Pod series on war idioms.

Everywhere you look in business, you will find the language of war: We often thinkand talkabout business competition in terms of attacking and defending, gaining and losing ground.

During the first business ESL podcast in this series, we studied many such war and military related idioms. We learned the meaning oftaking flak,” “reinforcing one’s position,” “laying low,” “making a moveand many others. 在这个播客中, we will continue exploring useful war idioms.

The dialog picks up where we left off at the Luminex management meeting. Jane has just explained that they need to thinkstrategically.He explains that this meanslaying low,” by which he means waiting to take action until the economy improves.

当你听, pay attention to the war idioms Jane and her colleagues use. You may not understand them the first time. After you hear the debrief, go back and listen again, then things should be much clearer.

听力问题:

1) What does Jane mean when she says their competitor, Meyers, is its own worst enemy?
2) The speakers describe their new strategy as anambushthat willsurroundMeyers. Why do they say this? What is the strategy?
