It's Sarah's first day. Philip and Marcia show her around.

Do the preparation task first. Then watch the video and do the exercises. You can also read the transcript.

Hello Tomato251,

Philip tells Sarah about a couple of meetings that she must attend every week, but otherwise, as Marcia explains, how Sarah organises her time is up to her, i.e. Sarah decides her timetable otherwise. For this reason, Sarah doesn't really have a timetable - only two or three hours a week doesn't really count - and so number 5 in the Comprehension Task is false. I've copied the relevants parts of the transcript below.

I hope that clears it up for you.

All the best,

Philip Hart: Now then, I’ll tell you about your schedule – there’s a sales and marketing meeting every Monday, as well as a meet-up with the various heads of department on Thursday afternoons, just so we know what we’re doing...

Marcia Boardman: Other than that, how you organise your time is up to you...

Sarah Timms: That’s fine – I’m a good time manager! 

Thank you that is good i hope to learn english in few time

Hi, i can not see video

Hello Gafurjon,

I was just able to see the video, so I don't think it's a problem with LearnEnglish. I'd suggest you download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash player. This usually solves most video problems. If it still doesn't work for you, please tell us more about what happens and what kind of device and browser you're using.

Good luck!

All the best,

Hello learner14,

We are too small a team to be able to provide feedback on users' writing. I'm sure that a colleague or friend or family member of yours who knows some English could help you. Good luck with getting the rise!
