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, you need provide these information such as Full name, email, mobile number, company name, job position, company phone number, web,... to make a namecard

It's depending from situation. If required some minimum-only name, but sometimes all kind about name, company, position.

Greetings to all from Argentina.

I have a question:

In task 1 the choice of "Megumi thinks her real name is difficult to say.
" That's not true ?

Hi guillermot,

Megumi herself doesn't think her name is difficult to say; it's some other people who find it difficult.

It's a tricky question!

All the best,
LearnEnglish team

Hello Isabela, I'll explain, when she introduces helself, She say.
But people who are not from my country think it's difficult to say my name.

The question is : Meguni thinks her name is difficult to say.
Is false because those who thinks is difficult are people from another country.

It's false, because Megumi thinks that her name is difficult to say for the pleople that are not from her country.
