  • Hello again and welcome to English at work.

  • It's another day at tip top, trading on hopefully a happier one.

  • Following Dinis is bad news about her job.

  • I wonder if Tom and Anna are about to get the same bad news.

  • It's really awful having to let a member of your staff go.

  • But that's the situation we're in, I'm afraid.

  • And now you're gonna let us go on you.

  • Honestly, Paul, I've given my life to this company and, quite frankly, un disappointed.

  • No, I'm angry at your decision.

  • So your biscuits?

  • Well, Tom, that's what I think of tiptop trading.

  • What?

  • Hold on, Tom.

  • I think you're a bit confused.

  • Are not sacking you too?

  • I need to talk to you about plastic vegetables.

  • You know the Opa gene idea.

  • Oh, I say you're not sacking us.

  • Sorry.

  • Pull our buy you some more biscuits.

  • So what was it that you had to say?

  • Plastic vegetables.

  • Yours and Anna's idea for a plastic obey gene.

  • I like it.

  • It's good.

  • So I need you to develop a prototype we can use to show our potential clients.

  • Well, that's great.

  • So where do we get the prototype made upstairs on the fourth floor.

  • We have a great development team who can magic up some amazing designs.

  • They're magicians now, Anna.

  • They're just developers who make things out.

  • Plastic.

  • Thank you, Tom.

  • Look, why not go and have a chat to them now and get the ball rolling?

  • But we know making balls.

  • I'll come on and I'll explain.

  • See a po to get the ball rolling.

  • He means to get the project moving along.

  • Developers can design and make models of your products, which you can show and develop, but you need to give them clear and specific instructions.

  • Let's see how Anna gets on.

  • So this is the development team.

  • All right, George, you up for a footie on Sunday?

  • Great.

  • You met Anna before?

  • Hello.

  • We've come to talk vegetables.

  • Try the greengrocers.

  • Very funny yet.

  • No.

  • We need to talk Plastic.

  • Oh, Beijing making mate.

  • It's our new big idea.

  • Easy.

  • We can just remote the design for the imperial lemons.

  • Can they, Anna?

  • Is that what you want it to get what you want?

  • You need to explain exactly your requirements, but what shall I say?

  • Tell them exactly what you were thinking by saying I have a specific idea in mind on.

  • I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on how to improve my ideas.

  • Andi, I'd like to use your design skills to produce a fantastic product.

  • I see.

  • Okay.

  • Time for me to take control, George.

  • This is quite a special project for us, isn't it, Tom?

  • Oh, yeah, Right.

  • Absolutely.

  • So we want to get it right.

  • And I already have a specific idea in mind.

  • Oh, great.

  • Sure.

  • Tell me more.

  • Well, based on a really or vision, I was hoping it could be 20 centimeters in length using great one plastic resin with a black purple color.

  • Andi Ah, 30 degree curve on that site.

  • Does that make sense?

  • Yeah.

  • Court Clear.

  • Obviously, you are a designer, so I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on how to improve our idea.

  • Well, it looks very impressive.

  • Already cost Tom when you get her from.

  • He didn't get me from anywhere.

  • Now I'd like to use your design scales to develop a fantastic product that I can show everyone.

  • Okay.

  • Uh, yes.

  • I'll get on to it straightaway.

  • Excellent, Tana.

  • Sometimes it's important to take control and say what you really want, but in a positive and encouraging way.

  • Thes air the phrases that Anna used.

  • I have a specific idea in mind.

  • I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on how to improve my ideas.

  • I'd like to use your design scales to produce a fantastic rode up.

  • There's one more phrase to use to make sure things go to plan.

  • If someone's making something for you, that is.

  • I need to sign off your designs before they go into production.

  • That means approved the plans before anything is made.

  • Off you go, Anna.

  • So when will you have to defines?

  • Ready, then hopefully by tomorrow morning.

  • Is that okay?

  • That would be great, but I will need to sign off your designs before they go into production.

  • That way there won't be any mistakes.

  • Well, they're cranky, Tom.

  • She's a bit bossy.

  • She's a Percy.

  • Can't really be ever softy.

  • Now, come on, Tom, fetch my thinks.

  • We need to go and sort out and living person for Denise.

  • Oh, yeah, Right.

  • Of course.

  • See you, George.

  • Who?

  • I think Tom's that pussycat.

  • Let's hope the designs come out.

  • Well, that even more important is Denise his last day at work tomorrow.

  • How's everyone going to code?
