23 月 Lesson31 努力をねぎらう
Yes, let’s learn how to communicate effectively in business.

Hello, and welcome today’s program. We’re so glad you turned in.

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


You seem to have enjoyed the internship with us.

My highlight was making the video. That was great.

I could tell. The content looks so professional. You must have put a lot of effort into it.

That’s encouraging. But I want to improve. Would you mind telling me how I should strengthen my capabilities?

Well, I know you’re good at economics. But what if you learned more about foreign cultures?
Consumer behavior patterns do change with the economy. But cultural differences can affect them even more.

You’re absolutely right. Thank you for pointing that out.

*Well if you use “I could tell,” it’s generally talking about something you witnessed in the past.
Whereas “I can tell” is talking about something right in the present moment.

I can tell:  今見ていることについて言う
Hmm. Right.
