Transcript

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.


B

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.


C

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.


D

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.

The full name, phone number, email, company's name, position are usually written on the business cards in my country.

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,
Kirk
