Now listen, and fill in the spaces.
Man: Hello. Joe Fischer speaking.
Woman: Joe, it’s Wilma here. Can I have a word with you about the e-commerce website?
Man: Of course. How did the interviews go?
Woman: Well, we recruited an excellent business analyst this morning - he’ll join the team in a week or so. There’s still a gap for a software engineer, though, and we’ll have to fill that as soon as possible.
Man: I’ll ask around and see if anyone is able to transfer from other projects.
Woman: Thanks. Also, do you think you could produce a report for senior management by the end of the week? They’d like an idea of the timing of the project.
Man: No problem. What else should I include?
Woman: Let us know exactly what hardware you’ll need. The budget already allows for that.
Man: OK - anything else?
Woman: Yes - when you describe the project, would you make sure you spell out the objectives in clear, straightforward language? Certain members of the Board have their doubts that it will bring about the results we promised.
Now listen to the recording again.
