Late for Work - Interactive Practice

Нажмите на "Прослушать всё" и внимательно слушайте запись. Когда вы поймете весь диалог, возьмите на себя роль первого собеседника, нажав на кнопку "Person A". Теперь вы будете слышать реплики только второго собеседника (Person B). Повторяйте реплики первого собеседника (Person A) во время пауз. Затем переключитесь на второго собеседника (Person B) и работайте по аналогии. Скорость произношения в данном диалоге типична для носителей языка. Используйте кнопку "Пауза", если вам не хватает времени для чтения реплик в диалоге. Повторив это упражнение несколько раз вы наверняка сможете произносить эти фразы бегло, как это делают носители языка.

A: "Jack. Can I see you in my office?"
B: "Sure."
A: "You have been late 3 times in the last 2 weeks. Is this going to be a continual problem?"
B: "I'm so sorry. I really got unlucky this morning."
A: "Being late once in a while is based on luck. If you are late frequently, it shows that you are irresponsible. How are you going to fix it?"
B: "Last week, I had a lot of personal problems. I took care of all those problems and I don't have any excuse to be late anymore. I planned on coming in to the office early today, but there was an accident that held up traffic."
A: "You better start anticipating all problems because I'm not going to tolerate your tardiness any longer. Is that clear?"
B: "Perfectly clear. I will not be late again."
A: "That's all."

A: "Hey Martha, is there anything urgent that needs to be done today?"
B: "No. I don't believe so. Why?"
A: "I have a terrible headache and I was wondering if it would be ok if I could leave a little early today."
B: "I don't see why not. You can make up the time later in the week."
A: "That's what I was thinking too. But as for today, I don't think I can be productive."
B: "It's already two o'clock now. What time were you going to leave?"
A: "I'm just going to wrap up and leave pretty soon. Probably in about thirty minutes."
B: "Ok. Get some rest. If you are sick tomorrow, give me a call."
A: "Aright. Thanks. I'll see you tomorrow."

A: "Hi Martha. This is Jack. I think I caught a flu or something. I feel worse than yesterday."
B: "You better stay home today then."
A: "I think that will be best. I'll log my sick day tomorrow when I get in."
B: "No problem. Just get some rest. We have everything covered here so don't worry."
A: "Ok. Just in case something happens, you can call me at home. I'll be here all day."
B: "Ok. Thanks for calling. I'll see you when you get better."
A: "Aright. Thanks. Bye."
