직장에서 미팅이나 출장 등으로 인해 새로운 사람들을 만나게 되는 일이 자주 있으신가요?

업무 관련 미팅 시작 전 자기 소개도 하고 Small talk로 먼저 시작하는 것이 좋습니다.

Dialogue: 1 
Joanne: How was your trip? 
Ginny: It was quite busy on the plane and I nearly missed my connection in San Francisco. But otherwise, I didn’t have any real difficulties. 
Joanne: Have you had problems with a flight before? 
Ginny: Oh yeah. Once I was stuck in the airport in Singapore for almost a whole day because there were problems with the flight. But it’s a fantastic airport and there’s so much to do that it was actually a really good time.

Dialogue : 2 
Joanne: Do you know any good places to eat around here? 
Ginny: Yeah, if you can handle spicy food, there’s a Mexican place that does the best chilli I’ve tasted outside of Mexico.

Joanne: How long have you been working for ABC company? 
Ginny: Only about a year or so. I’m still learning the ropes really. 
Joanne: What did you do before this? 
Ginny: I worked in sales for a software company for about seven years. It was really interesting, but I find this job more interesting and more of a challenge.

Dialogue: 4 
Joanne: Is this your first trip to New Zealand? 
Ginny: No. I came here with my family on holiday a long time ago. I see there’s been a lot of expansion in Auckland since then, but it’s still a really beautiful place. 
Joanne: What did you see when you were with your family? 
Ginny: We went on a road trip down the North Island from Auckland to Wellington. It was wonderful. We spent a lot of time camping and on the beach.

Dialogue: 5
Joanne: What do you do when you’re not working? 
Ginny: I do a lot of running. I’m actually in training for an ultramarathon next year. 
Joanne: How long have you been training for the ultramarathon? 
Ginny: I did a marathon just over a year ago and really enjoyed it. About two months later, I read about ultramarathons and decided to see if I could push myself to go further.
