New Year Lesson

2013/01/07 at 08:43AM by Mark

 

Here is a lesson I wrote about new year. You can study this at home. If you have any questions, send me a message.

Mark ;-)

Part One Questions

1. What do Tom and Jannine talk about at the start?

2. What does Tom think about last year?

3. What are Jannine’s three goals for the coming year?


 

Part Two Questions

Dave and Mags have met for a new year’s drink. They are talking about their jobs.

1. What are Mags’ personal goals this year?

2. What are her professional goals?

3. What does Dave not want to do this year?

4. How did Mags get revenge after her boss shouted at her?


 

 

Part One - script

It is January fifth 2013. Tom and his boss, Jannine, get together for the first meeting of the year.

Jannine: Happy new year, Tom. How’s the family?

Tom: Happy new year to you, too. They’re all fine. How about yours?

Jannine: Well, Oscar had a cold but he’s getting over it now. Everyone else is fine. Did you

     have a good break?

Tom: Yeah. We just relaxed at home. You?

Jannine: The same. Right. We should get started. I’ve made some plans for this year, but

    before we talk about them, I want to hear what you think about last year.

Tom: Well, overall it was OK. Business was tough because of the recession but I think we

     did quite well.

Jannine: What do you think we should have done differently?

Tom: Hmm, we probably should have reduced our print advertising sooner. Online  

     advertising is much more cost effective.

Jannine: I agree. This year, I have three goals. The first is to increase sales by 10 per cent;  

     the second is to reduce costs by 10 per cent; the third is to go to at least three  

     overseas trade fairs. We have to start selling abroad.

Tom: Right. How do we do those things?

 

 

Part Two - script

 

Dave: So, do you have any goals for this year?

Mags: Oh, yes. I want to lose weight and stop smoking and cut down on caffeine.

Dave: I meant at work.

Mags: Oh, work. Hmm, no. Well, yes. I want to change jobs. I hate where I work now. I 

     want to get a different job.

Dave: What do you want to do?

Mags: That’s the problem. I have no idea. How about you?

Dave: I want to keep doing what I’m doing now. I don’t want a promotion and I definitely 

    don’t want to be transferred.

Mags: That’s not really a goal.

Dave: The thing is, I like what I do and I like the people I work with.

Mags: Lucky you. Most of the people at my place are not very nice at all. Just before new  

     year my boss shouted at me for parking in his space, but it wasn’t me. He didn’t even   

     apologize.

Dave: Are you going to complain?

Mags: No. If I complain, there’ll be more trouble. I got my own back, though. I put a 

     shrimp under his car seat on the last day of work. He didn’t find it and now his car  

     stinks!

 

Questions to think about

A. Does your company or organization have any goals for the coming year? How about you, personally? Do you have any goals in your professional life?
