  • Daniel:
    So, that's the tech side covered. There's just the details of the shipment deadlines to sort out.
  • Daniel:
    We need to make some changes. Beata, I'm already late for another meeting. Can you bring Clarice up to speed?
  • Beata:
    No problem. Leave it with me.
  • Beata:
    As Daniel said, I think there is a problem with one of our shipment dates. Here we are: April 17th. That's when the delivery is supposed to leave your factory, isn't it?
  • Clarice:
    Yes, four weeks from now.
  • Beata:
    And the container will arrive on the 28th of May?
  • Clarice:
    That's the plan.
  • Beata:
    The trouble is that one of our deadlines has been moved forward, so we need at least some of the components by the 10th of May.
  • Beata:
    I should have the details here. Ah, yes, these ones. The new schedule would mean we need at least one shipment early, probably by air.
  • Clarice:
    Hmm, difficult. That will put a real strain on the budget. We plan to ship everything by sea. It was going to be part of a consignment for the UK.
  • Beata:
    There's no flexibility, I'm afraid. We really need the components earlier. Two weeks earlier, in fact.
  • Clarice:
    Okay, I understand your position. I think we can do it. Just let me recalculate the budget. There'll be additional costs.
  • Beata:
    But is that really our responsibility? The original shipment was due in by the 9th of May. You changed it to the 28th.
  • Clarice:
    That was all cleared with Daniel. Arrangements have been made.
  • Clarice:
    If we had known otherwise, we would have shipped earlier.

This activity will help learners eliminate problems with these functional words by giving them immediate feedback on the mistakes they are making. It will also help students develop their use of more natural, varied and complex sentence structures.

TIP: Say the sentence out loud. Notice the types of mistake you make often. Focus on those types of errors. (singular/plural, subject-verb agreement, article use, prepositions, gerunds and infinitives, noun clauses, adjective clauses, word order, and word forms.)

Daniel: The thing is, I'm going to be really busy on Jessica's new project for the next few weeks, so I need Beata to do the day-to-day work on the Diab Sensor.

Daniel: I'm sure she'll be able to stand her ground and deal with the various issues, but if she does have problems, I'm still the project manager and she knows that my door is always open, apart from when I'm having my lunch break. That's my time.

Beata: Daniel mentions that he would like me to speak to Clarice about the new requirements. I'm sure I can handle it; I've worked with sub-suppliers and clients on many other projects and Daniel is always close by in case I need him.

Daniel: Clarice, good to see you. This is Beata. She'll be taking over from me as your main contact on the Diab Sensor. As you know, Clarice is our main sub-supplier on the project. Her company will be sending us almost all the components. She's almost as vital to the project as I am.

Clarice: No one could be as vital as you, Dan. Very pleased to meet you, Beata.

Beata: Likewise. I'm looking forward to working with you.

Daniel: I have a meeting room booked. Shall we?

Daniel: So, that's the tech side covered. There's just the details of the shipment deadlines to sort out. We need to make some changes. Beata, I'm already late for another meeting. Can you bring Clarice up to speed?

Beata: No problem. Leave it with me.

Daniel: Great.


Beata: He's so busy today. Well, we all are.

Clarice: It looks that way.

Beata: Anyway, as Daniel said, I think there is a problem with one of our shipment dates. Here we are: April 17th. That's when the delivery is supposed to leave your factory, isn't it?

Clarice: Yes, four weeks from now.

Beata: And the container will arrive on the 28th of May?

Clarice: That's the plan.

Beata: The trouble is that one of our deadlines has been moved forward, so we need at least some of the components by the 10th of May. I should have the details here. Ah, yes, these ones. The new schedule would mean we need at least one shipment early, probably by air.

Clarice: Hmm, difficult. That will put a real strain on the budget. We plan to ship everything by sea. It was going to be part of a consignment for the UK.

Beata: There's no flexibility, I'm afraid. We really need the components earlier—two weeks earlier, in fact.

Clarice: Okay, I understand your position. I think we can do it. Just let me recalculate the budget. There'll be additional costs.

Beata: But is that really our responsibility? The original shipment was due in by the 9th of May. You changed it to the 28th.

Clarice: That was all cleared with Daniel. Arrangements have been made. If we had known otherwise, we would have shipped earlier.
