A request from your boss

Listen to some requests from a manager to practise and improve your listening skills.

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

Hello Sean,

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the audio. I've checked the page and everything seems to be working correctly, so I would guess that the problem is a local one: either the compatibility of your device or your local internet settings blocking certain content.

I suggest you check these and see if using a different device or changing some of your security settings helps.

It is very good question that I'd like to answer it. Actually yes, I do sometimes help other people with their work specially when they have request me.
I would like to have divided the requests 3 main categories are as follow:
1- request comes from family
2- request comes from work and colleagues
3- request comes from my friends' side
It will be interesting to know, usually I do the first, which one is most important or those are priority or shall doing the first.

I tend to help as I can, that because we are working to get the same aim and also due to perhaps one day I could need their help to solve anything

I help to my colleagues if I have the time as I take some tasks of their duties to finish on time.

Yes i do, i helped to my dougther with her homework, in ocations to my friend with their computer´s problems.

very good
thank you
