Business cards

Listen to four people talk about their jobs to practise and improve your listening skills.


Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.



A: Hello, Doctor Miller. It's nice to meet you.  

B: Please call me Peter.

A: OK. Are you a medical doctor? It must be helpful when you sell medical equipment.

B: Actually, no. My doctorate was in electronic engineering, but it's still helpful for me when I sell our equipment.


Good morning, everyone. I'm happy to be here today to tell you about our new project. My name is Alessandro Rossi. I'm the project leader on the Starlight programming project.


Pleased to meet you. Here's my card. My real name is Megumi Tanaka, but people who are not from my country think it's difficult to say my name, so I use another name, Meg, when I'm working internationally.


Hello, everyone. My name's Andres Mulligan. I'm very happy to be joining this team for the next few months and learning more about research and development.

In my country people use their full names, designations that they serve for companies, and most importantly their contact numbers and email addresses on their business cards. They write everything in English. People sometimes mention their company addresses, business concerns on the backside of the business cards. It is important to have a business card for an employee in my country.
