17 火 Lesson30 やる気を引き出す
I’m Kellie Holway.
Welcome to business communication in simple English.
Yes, let’s learn how to communicate effectively in business.

Hello everyone, welcome to our program. We’re so glad you turned in.

Okay. Let’s listen to today’s business scene.


This three-minute video is designed to introduce our Japanese product range to overseas web visitors.
So, what kind of tone should we use?

Perhaps an informative tone, because we need to educate web visitors first.

I prefer a dramatic tone. We should impress the visitors with touching stories.

Either one should work in this case. Please brainstorm together over the next two hours. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. You’ve done a great job with the blogs. So keep up the good work.
