Narrator: Welcome back to English at Work. Anna is acting up as boss because Paul had an accident with a biscuit! But her and Tom are in a panic after finding a note in Paul’s diary that said ‘Socrates, IPC, final’. Could it mean bad news for Tip Top Trading? Let’s find out. Tom: It’s very odd and it can’t be good. But Socrates must mean Mr Socrates. Anna: Yes – but IPC? What’s that mean? Tom: Yeah and final sounds very… final. Hmm… I’ve got it! IPC – it must be code for imminent post closures – they’re going to sack us all! Anna: Sshh. Keep your voice down. Don’t tell everyone. Let’s check things out first, don’t say anything yet. OK? Tom: OK. Mum’s the word. Anna: Your mum knows?! Tom: No, no, no, it’s our little secret. See you later. Denise: Everything OK Tom? Tom: Oh yeah, everything’s cool. Actually Denise, it’s not. I think we’re all going to be sacked tomorrow by Mr Socrates. Denise: What?! No! I’ve got a hairdresser’s appointment on Saturday, how am I going to pay for it now? What am I going to do? I know, I’ll call Marge. Tom: (Calling across office) Hey Brian, Pete… we’re all going to be sacked tomorrow. Narrator: Erm… Anna, you’ve got a problem brewing. Anna: What? Narrator: Tom’s spreading rumours about job cuts. Everyone’s starting to panic. Anna: Oh no! I’d better do something but what shall I say? Narrator: Call a meeting quickly. Tell the team ‘there are some rumours going around that are not true’. Say, ‘I am trying to establish the facts and I will let you know as soon as I have some information’. You could say ‘I would be grateful if you hear any rumours, not to pass them on’. This can be a tricky situation and you need to handle it well. Good luck!English at Work © British Broadcasting Corporation 2012 Page 2 of 3 bbclearningenglish.com Anna: Gosh. This is hard but here goes. Excuse me, could everyone gather round please. Denise: Is this about the sackings? Anna: No Denise. Any rumours about sackings are not true. Tom: Yeah that’s right. Who told you that Denise? Denise: Hmmm… Anna: Please don’t listen to rumours. I am trying to establish the facts and if I get any information I will let you know straight away. Denise: But I heard Mr Socrates is coming tomorrow, surely he’s going to sack us. Anna: Ignore the rumours and please don’t pass them on. Narrator: Anna. Tell them to carry on with their work as normal. Anna: Right, yes. Could you please just carry on with your work as normal. Thank you. Tom: So Anna, how are you going to find out the facts? Anna: I’m going to have to call Paul – in private Tom – I don’t want any more rumours getting out. Tom: Oh yeah, absolutely. You need to establish the facts right? (Door shuts and Anna calls Paul on the phone) Paul: Hello, Paul speaking. Anna: Oh hi Paul. It’s Anna. Sorry to bother you. Are you feeling better? Paul: Much better thanks but keeping clear of biscuits for a while! Anyway, is everything OK? Anna: Not exactly. There are rumours spreading about job cuts. Tom saw a note in your diary for tomorrow that said ‘Socrates, IPC’. Paul: Hmm. Really? Oh yes. I mean, oh no! It’s not job cuts – it’s IPC - the International Plastics Conference tomorrow! And Mr Socrates is flying in for it. Oh golly gosh, I’d forgotten about that. Anna: I see. And why did you right final? Paul: Because there’s an award being given for the Best Plastic Innovation – and we’re in the final with our Imperial Lemon. It was a reminder to me to write an acceptance speech. Oh golly gosh, I haven’t written a thing.English at Work © British Broadcasting Corporation 2012 Page 3 of 3 bbclearningenglish.com Anna: Oh dear. What are we going to do? Narrator: What are you going to do indeed? But thank goodness those rumours of job cuts are not true. Tomorrow could actually be a good day for Tip Top Trading. Here’s a reminder of the phrases Anna used to try and control the spread of some office rumours: There are some rumours going around that are not true. Please don’t listen to rumours. I am trying to establish the facts and if I get any information I will let you know straight away. Ignore the rumours and please don’t pass them on. Please just carry on with your work as normal. Thank you. Narrator: Tomorrow is going to be an important day at the International Plastics Conference. Mr Socrates will be there and Tip Top Trading could pick up a prestigious prize but who’s going to write the acceptance speech? Paul: OK Anna, this calls for some urgent action. I want you and Tom to meet me at the Princess Diana Conference Centre tomorrow at 9.00.
