A:Hi,how was the marketing meeting?销售会议怎么样？
B:Hi.It was awful. Ithink I put forward some great ideas, but none of them were accepted.
A:I'm surprised to hear that. I thought you had some very good suggestions.
B:So did I.I ran the ideas by a few people before the meeting and ideas seemed to have the supports of those people.
A:So what happened in the meeting?
B:One or two people didn't take my ideas very well.That was to be expected. The worst part was the people who said the ideas were good before the meeting didn’t support me during the meeting.
A:I wonder why not.We could always revise the suggestions and take into account any objections.
B:That's good advice, but I'm notconfident that even revised proposals will be accepted.
A:May I make a suggestion?
B:Sure. I'm open to any reasonable suggestions.
A:Is there a chance you could contact the client confidentially and see what they think? If they like your ideas, perhaps they could put them forward as their own proposals. You won't get credit for the ideas, but the client will know they were yours.
B:I'm not sure that's a good idea.
A:Go on. Take a chance. You could just pitch at your idea. The client should be smart enough to take the hint.
Nancy: You've been working with us here in China for a few months now. Are you still feeling culture shock?
Marry: Yes, a bit. But it's much better than the first few weeks.
Nancy: Remember the first time I took you to eat real Chinese food? You barely touched anything!
Marry: I know! I was scared! A lot of the food here is very different from my home. And the Chinese restaurants in NewYork are very different from here.
我知道！ 我被吓到了！这里的很多食物和我家乡很不一样。 纽约的中国餐馆和这里有很大的不同。
