English at Work:The crisis

2014-04-01 15:18[BBC] 来源: 浏览: 次 评论:
Narrator: Here we are again at Tip Top Trading, where Anna\'s interview for a sales job has been suddenly interrupted. Office assistant Denise has entered the room, looking very worried. What\'s wrong? And will Anna have any suggestions that might help?

Denise: I don\'t know what to do!

Paul: So what\'s the matter Denise?

Denise: You know the PowerPoint presentation?

Paul: The one we\'ve been preparing for the last two months?

Denise: Yes.

Paul: The one that\'s very, very important and that we need this afternoon?

Denise: That one.

Paul: Aha.

Denise: We\'ve lost everything!

Paul: No!

Denise: I had it on a USB stick, to transfer it, but the stick has vanished!

Narrator: Right Anna, now is your chance to help them find solutions to the problem. You\'ll need phrases like:

Can I make a suggestion?
Why don\'t you...?
Have you tried...?
Maybe we could...?
How about...?
I have an idea!

Paul: But don\'t you have it saved on your computer?

Denise: No, it was taking up a lot of space, so I deleted it.

Paul: So you have lost the only copy we have.

Denise: Yes.

Narrator: What idiots! I\'ve never seen such a disorganised office. Go on, you\'d better help them, Anna.

Anna: Can I make a suggestion?

Paul: Yes, please do!

Anna: Why don\'t you try looking in your recycle bin? It might still be there.

Denise: I did. It isn\'t.

Anna: Have you tried asking your colleagues if they\'ve seen the memory stick?

Denise: I did. They haven\'t.

Anna: How about looking through your rubbish bin to see if you threw it away by mistake?

Denise: (getting shirty) I don\'t do silly things like that!

Paul: All very sensible suggestions Anna, thank you.

Anna: Maybe I could do a big office search for you...? I\'m good at finding things.

Denise: There are confidential documents in this office – non-staff are not allowed to see them.

Paul: Now, now Denise. Why don\'t you drink up that nice tea?

Anna: I have an idea! Did you ever email the presentation to anyone?

Paul: Golly gosh, you did Denise! You emailed it to me to proof-read. It\'ll be in my inbox somewhere. Good thinking Anna!

Denise: I was just about to suggest that myself.

Paul: Problem solved. Thank you Anna!

Anna: Pleasure.

Narrator: Well done Anna!

Paul: Right, now please leave us Denise. Anna and I will continue our interview. Would you like a biscuit Anna?

Anna: Thank you. Oh, what\'s that?

Paul: Oh golly gosh, the USB stick! It was mixed in with the plate of biscuits that Denise brought in.

Anna: It\'s wet!

Paul: Yes, I think maybe I stirred my tea with it at one point. Oh well. Now, where were we...?

My goodness, it\'s 11 o\'clock! I have a meeting right now! I\'m afraid I\'m going to have to go. But I\'ve made my mind up about you anyway. I suppose you\'d like to know if you\'ve got the job?

Anna: Yes please!

Narrator: Ah - Stop right there! I\'m sure everybody would like to know if Anna\'s got the job – but everybody\'s going to have to wait until we\'ve heard her helpful phrases once again:

Can I make a suggestion?
Why don\'t you try looking in your recycle bin?
Have you tried asking your colleagues if they\'ve seen the memory stick?
How about...?
Maybe I could do a big office search for you...?
How about looking through your rubbish bin...?
I have an idea!

Paul: Anna, we need someone who can think on her feet and who is a first-rate people person. Someone who sees solutions, not problems... someone like you! So if you want the job, it\'s yours!

Narrator: Ah, now think carefully Anna – do you really want to work for these people? They seem a bit... disorganised.

Anna: I would definitely like the job! Thank you!

Narrator: So be it. Join us again next week for Anna\'s first day as a sales executive at Tip Top Trading.
