Percakapan - In a job interview
Bram : Look at the one who is being interviewed. He is very confident in answering all the questions. I think he has a job experience before this.
Joni : Maybe you’re right. The way he appears and he acts shows that he has a lot of job experience. By the way, how is your feeling now?
Bram : To tell the truth, I’m very nervous and worried that I will fail in this interview. You see, I haven’t had a job experience at all.
Joni : So am I. Seeing a confident man like him makes me down. I feel that my performance is much worse than his.
Bram : Anyway, feeling pessimistic won’t help us now. So, be optimistic!
Joni : Good idea!
Percakapan - Secretary
Fitri is Mr Apryan Siregar’s secretary. She comes to Mr Siregar’s room to ask for his signature on some reports.
Fitri : Here are some reports to be signed, Sir.
Mr Siregar : Any call or message for me?
Fitri : No, Sir.
Mr Siregar : (While giving the reports which have been signed). Please send an email to Mr Melson Santoso from the Ancient and Modern Art Gallery. Tell him that our company is interested in his designs. Ask him to attach us his latest designs and send a copy of them to Mrs Nisa Fauzi. Emphasize that we look forward to his immediate reply.
Fitri : All right, Sir. Anything else, Sir?
Mr Siregar : Yes, Fitri. Write a memo to all our employees that there is a new policy. All the employees have to attend Friday Fresh at 7 sharp in our indoor hall. There will be a direct disciplinary action from me to those who do not attend it without a good reason.
Fitri : Then, is it going to be a must, Sir?
Mr Siregar : Absolutely, yes. Most of our employees seldom have their self-exercise. I intend to reduce the health insurance cost. And Friday Fresh is the starting point. All of us have to obey this policy.
Fitri : Including you, Sir?
Mr Siregar : Yes, of course. The leader must be a model.
Fitri : That’s kind of you, Sir! When will it start, Sir?
Mr Siregar : Next Friday, at 7 sharp.
Fitri : Fine, Sir. I’ve got that. Anything else, Sir?
Mr Siregar : That’s all for now, I think.
Fitri : All right, Sir. I’ll do my work right now.
Mr Siregar : Thank you, Fitri.
Fitri : You’re welcome, Sir.
