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.
Now I dont have to participate or attending any meeting because I am not working. When I was working, I often organized many meetings and also participated in many meetings. Every friday my team used to do fill an excell spreadsheet with what we achieved and the plan for next week. Based on that, it was easy to manage my agenda. Sometimes, we had many unscheduled meetings that was necessary to arranged time to participate.
In the past I was going to meetings in an association that I was a member of, their were alot of members so we were always discussing the meeting time whether we can postpone it to a later time or bring it forward to an earlier time or to move it to another day.
meetings I have to attend it is the store meeting at my workplace and group work in university with my teammate. In such time, I usually have to arrange a reasonable balance between study and work, it is quite difficult.
I have an online meeting with my friends tomorrow that will discuss about civics presentation. Actually, the meeting will be held today, but one of my friends can't attend because he has an urgent business.
I will have an interview to join a project. Firstly, I chose 10 a.m on Saturday. But then I realized that I have to join the online classroom on Saturday morning. So I directly contacted the core team to move the meeting. And I postpone the meeting to 5.30 pm on Saturday. I hope I can pass the interview well.
I have to go to the annual meeting of “SweetyHome Industry Company Limited”.The location is near KanDawGyi Lake and is held in the evening.
I don’t have any arrangement for this meeting because I attended as a special guest.
Now I am a programmer for Agile development project. In an Agile development project, we have to attend these meetings such as sprint planning meeting, daily standup meeting, sprint review meeting, sprint retrospective meeting and backlog refinement meeting. It's not me, scrum master will arrange them.
