Making a decision

Listen to a meeting in which colleagues make a decision to practise and improve your listening skills.

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

In the office where I work, we usually share our perspective or opinion about a specific topic, listening to all the perspectives and in the end, our boss makes a final decision with the best opinions or perspectives that we already gave in the discussion.

In my workplace, all decisions made by our department supervisors however they will ask and collect our opinions first, and then they will get approval from our manager, eventually, we will have a briefing of the action or decisions that they made to let us know.

I prefer to stay neutral

In my Job, decissions are very centered on few people, because in the public sector, there are a lot of reviews for each project and budgets.

My coordinator asks our opinion and decides alone what to do.


Emiko says: "we need to decide between us", but the correct way would be "among us". Am I wrong?

Thank you

Hi rerre,

In this context youl could use between us, among us or amongst us. All are correct and there is no difference in meaning.



The LearnEnglish Team

Where I work decisions are made by the top management and then communicated to employees.

There are three forms:

1. After of analysed a research.
2. Based us in previous experiences.
3. Taking in count development of process.

Usually, everybody is giving their opinion and then we can discuss and make a decision
PS. Hello Kirk, I would like to ask you if the sentence below is correct?
'' The coronavirus interrupted my business."
Thank you
