Eliz: Today we’ll listen to the last part of your negotiations with Mr. Blake.

But we still needed to deal with the issue of training our workers.

Gomez: So, Mr. Blake, when we first put these machines in operation, can you send over a group of advisors...
... technical advisors who speak English and can train our engineers and workmen?
Blake: Certainly, Mr. Gomez.
In fact, we have some engineers in a language training program now.
They could come over within a few months and be available any time you need them.
Gomez: Great, great. That sounds good.
Larry: Listen to these sentences.

Eliz: Can you send over a group of advisors?
Can you send over a group of advisors who speak English?
Can you send over a group of advisors who can train our engineers?
Eliz: We have some engineers in a language training program now.
They could come over within a few months.
They could be available any time you need them. (pause)
Eliz: Mr. Gomez, why was training such a concern?
Gomez: Well, with high-tech equipment, training is always a major worry.
Uh, robots have to be operated properly or they’ll break down.
If that happens, repairs will delay production.
Any delay in production is very expensive.
Eliz: So that’s why you asked about technical advisors?
Gomez: Yes, I wanted to make sure that someone would be available to train our workers.
Eliz: Mr. Gomez, thank you for talking to me today.
Gomez: I enjoyed it.
Eliz: Let’s take a short break.
