Language level

Upper intermediate: B2


thank you in advance
can i say i am going to talk you as l would like to talk you in the transcript?

Hello mo hussein,

You neeed to say 'talk to':

I'm going to talk to you


In the transcript, the speaker uses the phrase 'talk you through', which has a different meaning. Talking someone through something means explaining a process or procedure to someone:

Installing the new operating system is not too difficult. I'll talk you through it.

I have completed lesson for A Design Presentation . The level I chose was Upper Intermediate B2.

The last time I gave a presentation was last week during our CEO visit to us . I talked about the target achievement , workshop through put and technician performance .

When was the last time you had to give a presentation? What was it about? How did it go?

It was in last year and our sales team needed to give the weekly sales progress report and business development info to our country manager. Each team member needed to talk about their roles and responbilities for the last week assignments. For example, I was in charge to check the whole team's overall activities and tasks completion, as a manager duties. Other team members needed to report about their customers phone calling, incoming and outgoing phone calls to handle the potential sales or general inquiries. Other member needed to report about the customer complains or requests and payment information for our shipments.

Anyway, our weekly sales meeting normally last about 45mins to 1 hour. Afterward, we had the Questions and Answers time with our Country Manager to work on new assingments for the next week.

Thank you this Listiening lession. It is very helpful strengthening my knowledge

In task 1
6. He finished the presentation with enough time to take some questions.
I think the answer should be false; because there isn't enough time at all and he is a little suspicious about they will run out of time, so that, the presenter said:
"OK. So, any questions? Feel free to also email me for further information in case we run out of time."
Am I correct?
Thanks in advance.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello corflz

You're right in thinking that the speaker suspects there may not be enough time for him to answer all questions. This is why he makes the offer for people to email him. But since the audio ends there, the only thing we know for sure is that there is some time for questions. Since the speaker didn't say there was very little time, I think it's fair to assume that there is time enough for a few questions. For this reason, 'True' is the best answer here.

All the best
