''Hello everyone. Today I'm going to explain our new sales plan to everybody. This year, our main focus is on opening new markets. Next, we have a lot of concrete work to do, but the most important thing is for everyone to work hard together. Let's go for it!" What do you think?
bùcuò 。dànshì nǐ tài yánsù le 。nǐ yào lājìn hé tīngzhòng de jùlí 。
Good. But you're too serious. You need to reduce the distance between you and your listeners.

Oh. Then I'll try it again. ''Hello everyone. Today I'm going to explain our new sales plan to everybody. I feel very honored. This year, our focus is on opening new markets. Next, we have a lot of concrete work to do, but the most important thing is for everyone to work hard together. Let's go for it!"

Hmm. Much better than the last time. But at key points, your tone can be a little more emphatic. For example, ''the new sales plan," ''everyone working hard together."
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
