Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.
Lucy: Hi, Anna. Do you have a minute to talk about the meeting next Tuesday?
Anna: Sure. We said 11, didn't we?
Lucy: Yeah, we did. But I have a bit of a problem with the time. Would it be possible to move it?
Anna: Oh, I see. We could postpone it to the afternoon, to 1 p.m., for example. Or bring it forward to earlier in the morning. What would suit you?
Lucy: Could we make it 9 o'clock? That would really help me. I have another important meeting in the central office at 12.
Anna: No problem. It's important you're there.
Lucy: Thanks a lot, Anna.
Anna: Do you need help with any preparation? Did you get the agenda I sent out?
Lucy: Yes, I did. And no, that's all fine, thanks. My report is ready and I'm looking forward to presenting it.
Lucy: I can tell Sven about the time change. I'll see him later.
Anna: Don't worry about telling Sven. I'll send an email to everyone to confirm the time has changed and with an updated meeting invite.
Lucy: Great. Thanks, Anna.
Anna: OK. I'm happy that works for you. We really need you there and it's good we don't have to cancel it.
Lucy: See you then. Have a good weekend in the meantime.
Anna: You too.
