English at Work – Episode 62: Anna’s decision



Transcript of the podcast

Narrator: Hello again and welcome back to English at Work – the drama about life at the plastic fruit production company called Tip Top Trading. You may remember Anna, the company’s newest and brightest sales executive, was offered a promotion and a marriage proposal at the same time. She’s taken time out to think about her reply but everyone in the office really misses her

Tom: (Pouring his heart out) I dunno Denise, I’d be good for Anna, I think we would be been a perfect pair. Mr and Mrs Darcy… it sounds good


!Anna: I’m back

.Tom: Anna! I…we weren’t expecting you

.Anna: Yes I can see – perhaps you could tidy up your desk Tom

Tom: Very funny Anna – still trying to be the boss! So did you have a good trip? Did you get some head space

?Anna: Eh

Narrator: He means time alone to think about the things you want to think about. Tell him you’ve been chewing things over – it means you’ve been thinking about your proposals and say I have come to a final decision

Anna: OK, well it’s true; I have done a lot of thinking. (To Tom) Tom, I did have some head space and a chance to… chew things over

?Tom: Yes! Yes! And

Anna: And I’ve come to a final decision. The answer is ‘yes’. I accept. There’s no doubt really… I should give it a go… I need the experience… and besides, what’s the worst thing that can happen

.Tom: Oh Anna. I’m so happy. You won’t regret your decision

Narrator: Hmm – is Anna really saying ‘yes’ to Tom’s marriage proposal or has there been a misunderstanding
:Here are some of the phrases we’ve heard today

I’ve had a chance to chew things over
I’ve come to a final decision
I’ll give it a go
You won’t regret your decision

Narrator: Find out if we can look forward to Anna and Tom’s wedding in the next episode of English at Work. Bye
