欢迎回到Business English Pod，今天的课程 英语搭配 related to implementing a plan.
在业务, good planning is important, whether you’re talking about a long-term strategy or a short-term project. But a plan itself means nothing without action. It’s not what you decide to do that matters, but what you actually do. And what you actually do with a plan is called “implementation.” Implementing a plan is all about deciding who will do what, and when they will do it.
在本课中, we’ll listen in on a meeting about how to implement a marketing plan. 在讨论中, you’ll hear lots of useful expressions that we call “collocations.” A collocation is a natural combination or group of words. 例如, I’ve already used the collocation “to implement a plan.” We don’t say “do a plan” or “activate a plan.” The natural expression is “to implement a plan.”
Native speakers use collocations like this automatically, and you can learn to use them as well. 通过学习 英语搭配, 您将改善词汇量，听起来更加流利. 当您听对话时, 尝试挑选一些搭配，我们将在稍后的汇报中讨论它们.
