Transcript Snapshot

Hey amigos y amigas, you are listening to the English Made Simple show, this is episode number 2-0-5, number two hundred and five, numero dos cientos cinco.

Welcome to the English Made Simple show, this is Milena from and you are listening to the episode two hundred and five!

What is up guys and girls? What is up?

In today’s fun episode we are going to learn how to POLITELY interrupt someone in a business meeting.

I recently coached someone who was anxious about speaking up in business meetings. My student was too self-conscious of speaking his mind and sharing his point of view during a business meeting.

So I’ve prepared a few pages of potential phrases that he could use the next time he is in a business meeting. We were practising these phrases together so that he could become more comfortable saying them.

I kept the resource and I am willing to share it with you this month, the month of November. You can get access to these phrases when you visit

Inside the resource you will learn: how to interrupt a business meeting politely and ask for clarification on anything that you might have missed, you will learn some assertive phrases that won’t make you appear arrogant when trying to get your point across (trying to voice your opinions or get your point of view across), and you will learn how to politely interrupt someone in a business meeting in a polite manner but also in a casual manner, a more informal manner.

And above all, this resource will help you expand your vocabulary

This resource is for you if you use English for work or if you are a business owner, someone who is self-employed and who engages with English-speaking clients in meetings, then this resource is for you.

This is also for you if you are about to attend a job interview in English.

Again, that link was – there are about 3 pages worth of phrases for you to learn.

I don’t know if you noticed, I used the word “engage” just now. This is for you if you engage with clients in English… we learnt from Weon Inteligente in the last episode, the word “engage” means to be involved, participate and be active.

OK… cool bananas!

And in today’s episode I am going to share a couple of these phrases with you.
