Lesson 33
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 today’s program.

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

I’m pleased to be able to accompany you to Europe. But quite frankly, I’m a bit nervous about negotiating with TV shopping companies.

I understand. They’re tough negotiators. But we always look for mutual benefits. If we’re well-prepared, we don’t need to be worried.
