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.

Soumis par Jamie le mer 11/12/2019 - 12:51

Someone can tell me how to do the reading text after the transcript

Hello Jamie

The reading text shows you the text on these four people's business cards. We are working to make them look more like business cards, but I'm afraid for now this is the way they look.

It would be good to compare what the business cards say to what the speakers say in the audio -- sometimes they provide more information. You need the reading text to answer some of the questions in the tasks.

All the best

In task 1 I think the answer here should be (true), isn't it? Megumi thinks her real name is difficult to say

Hello Marwa

Megumi says that other people find it difficult to say her name, but she doesn't think that herself. It's a small difference, but the way she says it, it is false.

All the best
