Taking part in international meetings can be daunting. We understand the importance of understanding different accents, using appropriate language to give your opinion, asking for others’ opinions, interrupting someone politely, summarising, paraphrasing, and the role of intonation. We are here to help with all of that and more.
Meetings are not only about language but also about culture. Which of the following would be appropriate when speaking within a British context?
No / I’m afraid that’s not acceptable
You must call me / Please call me when you get a chance
What seems to be the problem? / What’s your problem?
I disagree / I’m not sure I agree
This is not entirely correct / This is wrong
*starts talking while someone else is still talking* / Sorry to interrupt, but I must say that…
