Changing a meeting time

Changing a meeting time

Listen to two colleagues arranging a meeting to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.

Transcript

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.

Anna: Great.

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.

Hi everybody, I just want to specify regarding the task-1. I am not sure about the correct anwer for sentence 4 in the task 1. I think the correct answer should be either "Anna is sending the agenda now" or the last one "Anna will send the agenda later.". please check and let me know. thanks in advance.

Hello Muhiddin,

In the audioscript you can see that Anna says 'Did you get the agenda I sent out?' This tells us that the correct answer is 'Anna has already sent the agenda'.

 

 You can see the correct answers to all of our tasks. First enter your answers. Click 'Finish' to see your score. Then click 'Show answers' to see the correct answers.
