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.

Recently, in my country, business cards usually contain information such as full name (sometimes with academic title), occupation, phone/WhatsApp, email, and office address.

Honestly, I didn't see much business cards in my life. But I'm sure that there usually are data (?) like Name and Surname, what position someone occupy and phone number.

In my country, we have many different visit cards. Traditional ones are made of paper, and more modern ones are a microchip. Both have the name, surname, company name, address, email address, and phone number and for microchips personal connections to social media.
