Questions 9 to 12.
Look at the notes below.
You will bear two colleagues discussing what to include in their company's newsletter.
You have fifteen seconds to read through the notes.
Now listen, and fill in the spaces.
Woman: That was a good meeting, George.
Man: We covered a lot certainly. Let's pick out some points for next month's newsletter. We'll have to prepare it soon anyway.
Woman: Good idea. We usually leave it too late.
Man: I'll take notes. Let's start with something positive. How about the fact that the MD's finally agreed to start a productivity bonus. That's good news.
Woman: Especially as it'll be right across the board. Then there's the feedback from last month's trade fair. It was very encouraging on the latest equipment that was exhibited.
Man: Yes, we should include that, especially for the design team. And something about G and Q. The board are in the process of deciding whether to go ahead with the takeover. It's not official yet, but the rumours are spreading already. Some staff know people in the other company so they'll hear about it from them.
Woman: Let's write about it, but we must include confirmation that there won't be any redundancies, at least in the foreseeable future, to avoid causing anxiety.
Man: Right. Let's do the first draft tomorrow.
Now listen to the recording again.
That is the end of Part One. You now have twenty seconds to check your answers.
