This is the second part of our Business English Pod series on training and development vocabulary and collocations.
Good training is crucial for any company, big or small. How can we expect people to do a good job if they don’t have the right knowledge, skills, and tools? Providing employees with these tools is a key function of training.
And training is what we’ll be talking about today. We’ll be looking at some important vocabulary and collocations related to training. Remember, collocations are natural combinations of words that native speakers commonly use. There are no clear rules to collocation, only patterns. When you learn a new word, you should try to learn what other words are used with it. For example, you might think that “crime” is a useful word to know, but it will be difficult to use it if you don’t know that we usually use the verb “commit” before it, as in: “commit a crime.”
培训是我们今天将要谈论的话题。我们会来看下与培训有关的重要词汇和搭配。搭配是母语说话者使用的词汇的自然组合。对搭配没有明确的限定，只有模式。当你学习新词是，你应该学习和它搭配使用的其他词。比如，你知道“crime(犯罪)”是一个有用的词，但如果不知道用commit动词和它搭配，构成“commit a crime(犯罪)”，你就不会用这个词。
In the last episode, you heard many useful training collocations. We listened to Jeff, who works in HR at an engineering firm, talk with David, who has just given a presentation on new approaches to training. We heard Jeff explain how his company wants to improve their learning and development program. Today, David will explain more about learner-centered training.

2) What does David say another company has recently started?
3) What is David’s biggest piece of advice for Jeff?内容来自 听力课堂网：http://www.tingclass.net/show-8462-244410-1.html
