[BBC] [English at Work] 00 Looking for a job?

( Setting )
  1. Narrator: Hi I'm Neil. Thanks for joining me on English at Work - a new series of programmes set in an office,
  2. full of top tips to help you learn some useful business language which you could use in the workplace.
  3. In the next few minutes you can join me on an introductory tour around one of London's biggest imitation plastic fruit manufacturers, called Tip Top Trading.
  4. We're going to hear from some of the employees that work so hard to keep the business running smoothly.
  5. So come on then! Let's step into the office and eavesdrop on Tip Top Trading's possible newest recruit.
  6. I say 'possible' because she is still being interviewed for the job of Sales Executive
  7. Anna: Firstly, this job is an ideal match for my skills and experience:
  8. I've spent several years working in sales and I get on with people easily.
  9. Well, I mean, apart from the ones I don't like of course!
  10. Secondly, I know Tip Top Trading is one of the fastest-growing companies in London, and I want to be part of that.
  11. Paul: That's absolutely right. Tip Top Trading is the fastest-growing company in the plastic fruits sector.
  12. Narrator: Well said, Anna! If she gets that job I'm sure she'll be an asset to the company.
  13. The decision is in the hands of Manager, Paul, who we heard there.
  14. He's a nice guy really, a little disorganised, but when things go wrong he's got to take charge a bit like this
  15. Paul: Yesterday was not a great day. Two clients came in with serious complaints.
  16. Mrs Kumquat received a delivery of imitation bananas that were purple - not very convincing,
  17. and Mr Lime ordered grapefruits, but got pineapples. Tom! Tom: Yeah, listen...
  18. Paul: Were you responsible for these errors? Tom: Well... yes, but -
  19. Paul: Look, mistakes happen. But it seems that Mrs Kumquat left our offices even angrier than when she came in and she says she will never use Tip Top Trading again! Tom: I tried my best. Paul: Hmmm.
  20. Narrator: Ah yes, Tom! I hadn't warned you about Tom, one of the company's top Sales Executives - he's good...
  21. Tom: (on phone) Tom speaking. Yah! Frankie! So what's the latest, are we on?
  22. ... but his interpersonal skills need working on. Listen to this!
  23. Tom: My computer has crashed. I've lost my phone. And there's a big, BIG problem with my timetable.
  24. I have two meetings scheduled at the same time with two extremely important clients. I can't do them both at once!
  25. See what I mean! Now, every office needs a good office assistant - and Tip Top Trading is no exception.
  26. It's got Denise, who's there to assist, organise and sometimes make the tea...
  27. Denise: Oh sorry excuse me, here's your tea Paul. Paul: Thanks Denise.
  28. Narrator: But goodness! She likes to talk...
  29. Denise: Really! 'Denise do this! Denise do that!' I'm telling you Sharon, I've almost had enough! I get treated like I'm some kind of servant!
  30. Narrator: That's Denise! I think we'll just leave the office now and let them get on with their work
  31. So that's Tip Top Trading. There are plenty of other people we'll meet along the way...
  32. so go on, why don't you join me for English at Work from See ya!

What is lazy mode?

Foreignthinking is a game, not a test. However, some people just want to verify what they did is correct or not, not want to challenge themselves. That's why we have this new learning style.

Lazy mode is an efficient way to learn English. If you want to try it, please be our contributors as below~

How to see more learning materials for free?

In order to make this study camp keep growing, from May 2017, we decide to show learning materials for people that are welling to provide at least "one" learning material for other people. You can be our contributors with this link: How to create a new learning material.

The [BBC] [English at Work] series is also invisible in the home menu but will be displayed on the facebook fan page. Other BBC series, or new learning materials after May 2017 will not be displayed on home menu or facebook fan page.

It's also good for you to learn English while you are doing it. You will have abilities to analyze English paragraphs and to compare the difference thinking way with your mother language. So, it's definitely good to have a try.

Just keep learning, sharing, and having fun~
