  • Hello everyone.

  • Because of COVID-19, you've probably had at least one online meeting or class in the past year.

  • Thanks to the globalized world, we can talk to people from many cultures via online meeting platforms.

  • In today's video, I'll give you some phrases you can use in these types of situations.

  • Let's check them out.

  • Hello everyone. Good morning.

  • Daisy, are you with us?

  • Can you please "turn your camera on"?

  • I can't see you.

  • Most online meeting platforms have a camera button, which you can turn on and off.

  • Oh, there you are.

  • Do you have the numbers for our presentation?

  • I'm afraid your microphone "is on mute," Daisy.

  • We can't hear you.

  • Like the camera button, meeting platforms have a microphone icon which allows you to speak.

  • If it is "on mute," no one can hear you.

  • Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was on mute, and, yes, I have the numbers for the presentation.

  • Can you please "share your screen then," so everyone can see them?

  • When you "share your screen," people on the call will see what is on your computer or cell phone screen.

  • Oh, yes, of ...

  • Oh dear, I think Daisy's "breaking up."

  • This expression means that you can't hear, or see well, someone on the call.

  • Can you hear me, Daisy?

  • "You've frozen."

  • This means that the video stream of the person has stopped, or is still, like an image.

  • I'm so sorry, boss.

  • I have a "terrible connection" today, and I can't open my camera or share my screen.

  • To have a "bad" or "terrible connection" means you have a poor internet connection in that moment, which causes some instability for the person to participate in the online meeting.

  • Oh, don't worry about it, Daisy, it happens to all of us.

  • Can you please "share the link" for the presentation on the chat box so I can "share my screen"?

  • To "share something on the chat box" means to type in a link or a message for participants to see.

  • Sure, no problem, here you are.

  • So, those were our expressions related to connection and online meetings.

  • Do you have any other expressions you use during online meetings or video chats?

  • Let me know in the comments section.

  • If this video has helped you, please give it a big like and share it with your friends, co-workers, or students.
