Hello again Click Me!,

Class exercise for Wednesday:
Please Read the following exercise carefully in your buddy groups. In class discuss the email and choose your answer from the 3 options A, B, C.
You will have 10 minutes to discuss and draft the email reply. Then we will talk about it together in class for you to justify your answer. 
Company Car. You receive this email from R. Patel...
 
Subject: Delivery of new company car
 
I've completed final negotiations with the garage supplying your new company car. They'll have it ready for collection between 3 and 5 PM on Thursday 21 October, so I would be grateful if you could arrange for it to be collected at that time. They have agreed to include the sunroof, remote alarm and the CD player at the price we originally agreed. I've also arranged for your old car to be collected from the car park at Head Office on the afternoon of the same day. Please let me know immediately of any faults that you notice. When we're paying this amount of money for a car it should be perfect!
 
What do you do?

A - Collect the car yourself
B - Arrange to collect the car another day
C - Arrange for someone else to collect the car
Good morning Flex 3,
Feedback is an important part of the presentation. We are in a training program and learning by error correction and comments of colleagues is one of the most effective methods to ensure improvement.
You are members of this group for the purpose of practicing, improvoving and enriching you English abilities in a professional and practical way.
I expect all of you to take this first round of presentation exercises seriously and as part of your own personal opportunity to develop an English language training program.
I expect everyone to structure the presentation as follows:
*Personal intro
*Intro to the presentation
*Intro to the subject
*Presentation
*Summary / Conclusion
*Q & A
*Closing
Please study the web site:- focus on the slide show and no. 2 (but look around at other links to assist you:

Class exercise for tomorrow:

Please Read the following exercise carefully in your buddy groups. In class discuss the email and choose your answer from the 3 options A, B, C.

The scenario
Your name is A Shalom and you are the Marketing Manager of a company named Med Pharm. Your boss is Sara Clifton.
Med Pharm is a retailing company specialising in sales of foods and pharmaceutical products that has branches through the country.
Its head office, where you work, is in Tel Aviv and its CEO is Haim Ben Haim.
Med Pharm hired you because you are an ambitious, positive thinker who'll make things happen. Good luck!
Question 1 - Conference Confusion
You receive this email from the company CEO, Haim Ben Haim ...
Subject: Innovations in Drugs Conference 21st October
I've just had a phone conversation with Frank Fielding of Kemiko, who are the major drug manufacturing company organizing the above conference.
He tells me that there is going to be a presentation by the manufacturers ofSupranine, a revolutionary new drug for hay fever sufferers that has just been approved for sale over the counter by retailers in this country.
I've read several reviews of this new drug, and it looks set to take a very large share of the overall market.
I feel that the market in hay fever remedies is one that we have never properly got to grips with in this company, and since the size of this sector of the market expands every year, we must do something about this. We also regularly see drug sales plummet in the spring and summer months when cold remedies are not selling - increased sales of hay fever products would help to reduce this.
I've arranged a meeting with Karen for the week after the conference to discuss this, but she is on holiday the week before and therefore cannot attend the conference itself. I want you to make sure that you bring back a copy of all handouts relating to this product and any other information that you think we'll need when coming to our decision as to whether or not to market this product.
What do you do?
A - Attend the conference
B - Send someone else
C - Don't attend but order material to be sent
