Sau đây là phần Culture Tips: Dealing with Receptionists:
Mách giúp về Văn-hóa: Cách nói với nhân viên giữ máy điện thoại.
Khi ta gọi điện thoại cho một công ty lớn, ta phải nói gì với người giữ máy điện thoại?

- Chữ khó:

RECEPTIONIST=người giữ máy điện thoại.
TO CALL=gọi điện thoại; make a telephone call.
To answer the phone: trả lời điện thoại.
I'm returning his call=tôi trả lời điện thoại ông đã gọi cho tôi.
The receptionist will put you on hold=nhân-viên giữ điện thoại sẽ bấm nút xin ông giữ máy chờ. [Cũng nói HOLD ON, hay PLEASE HOLD = xin giữ máy, chờ]
HANG UP=gác máy điện thoại.
Identify yourself=hãy nói bạn là ai, tự giới thiệu (tên, làm ở đâu).
That makes sense=điều đó có lý.

CUT 3

Hello again. We're here with Gary Engleton, our business language expert. Let's look at our e-mail questions, Gary.
Gary: All right.
Eliz: We have an interesting question today about using telephones in business. A listener writes: “When I make a telephone call to a big company, what should I say to the person who answers the phone?”
Gary: That is a very good question.
At big companies, the people who answer the phones are called receptionists. You have to tell the receptionist who you are and who you want to speak with. You may also have to give some information about the purpose of the call [mục đích của cú điện thoại].
Eliz: Could you explain that again?
Gary: Sure. Here are the three things you should do. First, be sure to identify yourself and the name of your company. Use the expression: This is...”

For example, when I call, I say,"This is Gary Engleton from Culture Tips.”
Next, tell the receptionist who you want to speak to.
The best way to say is,"I would like to speak to... and the person's name.
Eliz: That's not so difficult.
Gary: Then, you can give some information about the purpose of your call. This is especially important if the person may not remember who you are.
For example, you could say,"I met him in Hong Kong last year and he suggested I call when I come to town.”
Eliz: Yes, that makes sense.
Gary: One more tip. If the person called you first, be sure to say,"I'm returning his call.”
Eliz: What happens next?
Gary: After you give your information, the receptionist will put you on hold. That means that you have to wait while the receptionist tries to find the person.
The receptionist will usually say,"Please hold” or “One moment, please.” While you are on hold, you may hear music or just a period of silence. Don't hang up!
Eliz: Thanks, Gary. That was very helpful.
Gary: I'm always glad to help!

Trong phần tới chúng ta nghe Gary Engleton mách cách đề nghị hẹn gặp. Những câu cần để ý như: Could we meet at....? How about...? How does that sound? (Chúng ta có thể gặp lúc...Thế còn....được không? Như vậy được không?)

CUT 7

Larry: Gary's tips.
Eliz: Now it's time for Gary's Tips with Gary Engleton!
Gary: Hello, Elizabeth. Today I'll be talking about how to make suggestions. In the Business Dialog, Mr. Bliss asks Ms. Milton to suggest a day for their meeting.
He asks her,"When would be convenient?” Listen to the conversation.
Notice how Ms. Milton uses the expression “Could we meet...” to suggest a day for the meeting.
Milton: I'm calling to see if we can arrange a meeting. There are several matters I'd like to discuss with you.
Bliss: Okay, when would be convenient?
Milton: Could we meet tomorrow?
Bliss: Yes, that's possible.
Gary: Saying,"Could we...” is way to make a suggestion. Another good way to make a suggestion is to say,"How about...?” Let's listen.

Bliss: What time would be convenient?
Milton: How about 2:30?
Bliss: Fine.
Gary: You can also make a suggestion by mentioning a time, and then asking “How does that sound?” Listen to the conversation between Mr. Epstein and Mr. Blake. Listen for the expression “How does that sound?” or “How's that sound?”
Epstein: Ah, I'll tell you what. I'm free after eleven o'clock. How's that sound?
Blake: That sounds fine with me.
Gary: Thanks for joining us today for Gary's Tips. We'll see you again next time.
