CUT 2

Culture tips: Leaving a Message.

Larry: Culture tips.
Eliz: Hello again, We're here with Gary Engleton, our business language expert. Let's look at our e mail questions, Gary.
Gary: Okay.
Eliz: Well Gary, today we have an e mail about a very important aspect of using phones.
The question is,"Sometimes when I leave a message, the person I'm calling gets incorrect information.”
What can I do to prevent problems?
Gary: That's a very good question.
The key word in the question is “prevent.” You have to prevent problems from happening.
Eliz: How do you do that?
Gary: Well, with a good receptionist, it's very easy. A good receptionist will ask you if you like to leave a message. Then the receptionist will repeat everything that you say.
Eliz: So a good receptionist confirms all information.
Gary: Yes, that's right.
Eliz: What if you get a poor receptionist?
Gary: Well, first, you may have to say,"I'd like to leave a message,” if the receptionist doesn't offer to take a message. And if the receptionist doesn't repeat all information, then you have to confirm it.
For example, after you give the receptionist the name of your hotel, you can say,"Would you like me to spell it?” or “Would you like me to repeat that?
Eliz: That's good advice.
Gary: Another tip is to speak slowly and pronounce everything clearly. For telephone numbers, break the numbers into small groups, like 415...234...46...98.
You can avoid problems by confirming all information.
Eliz: Gary, thank you again for your good advice.
Gary: My pleasure.

CUT 6

Gary's tips: Leaving a Message.
Larry: Larry's Tips.
Gary talks about how to leave a message.
Eliz: Now it's time for Gary's Tips with Gary Engleton!
Gary: Hello, Elizabeth.
Today we'll focus on how to leave amessage.
Notice how Ms. Milton uses “Could” to make polite requests:

Milton: Could I speak with Mr. Webber, please?
Receptionist: I'm afraid Mr. Webber isn't here right now. Can I take a message?
Milton: Yes, of course. Could you please ask Mr. Webber to call me back before 5:00 today?
Receptionist: Yes, of course.

Gary: The receptionist also uses the polite form “Could” and “Would” to ask for information.

Would you please spell your last name?
Milton: Certainly. M I L T O N.
Receptionist: That's M I L D O N.
Milton: No, M I L...Tee! as in TEN..O N.
Receptionist: Oh, M I L T O N.
Milton: That's right.
Receptionist: Could I have your telephone number please?
Milton: Yes. 877 30 88

Gary: Notice that the receptionist made a mistake in spelling Ms. Milton's name. But that wasn't a problem because she repeated what she heard and then Ms. Milton corrected her.
Notice that Ms. Milton used the expression “T as in TEN” to help the receptionist understand how to spell her name.
Let's listen again.

Receptionist: That's M I L D O N.
Milton: No, M I L...Tee! as in TEN..O N.
Receptionist: Oh, M I L T O N.

Gary: So always be sure to confirm all information when you are leaving a message. You will save yourself a lot of trouble!
Well, that's all the time we have.
Thanks for joining us today for Gary's Tips. We'll see you again next time.
Eliz: Thanks, Gary.
