Who's who in the office

Who's who in the office

Listen to two people talking about the people in their office to practise and improve your listening skills.

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



Jani: Welcome to the department, Yuki. Let me show you around and tell you about your new colleagues. I'll introduce you to them all later.

Yuki: Great. Thanks. So, who are those people over there?

Jani: That's the order management team. Luciana deals with the new orders. She's the one with short, dark hair.

Yuki: In the purple dress?

Jani: Yeah, that's right. You'll probably work closely with her while you are learning about our ordering process.

Yuki: Got it, thanks. And who's that over there? The guy who's on the phone?

Jani: Oh, you mean the one by the window? In the green shirt? Ah, that's Ian. He's the marketing director. And that's Maria beside him. She's responsible for the internal IT systems.

Yuki: OK, I'll try to remember all of this. I should probably be taking notes!

Jani: Don't worry about it. For now it's just good to put some faces to names.

Yuki: OK, great – and who do I talk to about setting up my mobile phone with email access? Is that also Maria?

Jani: No, you need to talk to Sebastian who works in communications. He can help you. That's him over there, next to the printer.  

Yuki: Thanks. I'll introduce myself to him later.

My office manager, Alexander is small person, likes different electric transport like scooter or bicycle. My hr-manager, Nikolay is a bit fat guy, looks like armenian, but he is russian. Matvei is backend-developer, he rides the motocycle like me. I've got one more backend-develop, Andrey. He encourages russian offence to Ukraine... silly guy, still don't understand how he could become a developer.

I have five colleagues in my team. Cynthia is one of my closest colleagues. She has short dark brown hair, and I get along with her the best because we have similar responsibilities. She is in charge of drafting, modelling, and project coordination. Chris is another colleague who is in charge of estimating and procurement. He is my alumni, so we are close as well and have collaborated on some projects. The other two new colleagues are Edwin and Jamie, who mainly do drafting and estimating work separately. Edwin is polite and smart, Jamie looks very young and beautiful even she is a mother of a 7 yers old daughter. As their mentor, I guide them to adjust to the new environment, so we communicate frequently. Our team leader, Manager Leo, is responsible for production cut lists and coordinating between the production team and our drafting and estimating team. He has a serious face and takes his role very seriously.
