It's becoming Fall and so we are no longer on vacation. We are back at work and talk is turning to the budget and the end of the year. How can we -the company-be more profitable. Euphemisms are "nice" ways to say something that is not nice, or at the very least it is a way to hide what you mean in the words. There is also a double meaning to mixed messages. Mixed messages is when someone says one thing but there actions don't match their words.
Thanks for checking out Bauenglish, if you want to make a comment go right ahead. Answers to mixed messages: salary, relocate, double, renaming, resourcing. See you again soon.
Working with clients I hear over and over again, my English is horrible, but I have to give presentations. If you have to give presentations, practice. Think of it as that Easter or Birthday poem that you had to learn for your church, bar/bat mitzvah, Seijin-no-Hi, Khtam Al Koran, or Hamar Cow Jumping. The words seem as if they come for out of the air, but this is where preparation meets performance skills. You can do this. I've set out here a couple of common sense facts about presenting that if you follow it should be easy-peasy next time you're called upon to speak. Practice your message, your message is more important than your words.
The answers to the exercises Write for or since, for three days, since August 20th, since Friday, for two days, for a year, since three weeks ago, since noon, since Easter, since May sine 1999, since a year ago, for days and days, for a long time, since July, for six months, since a year ago, for ten years, for three weeks, since dinner time, since I was six, since last winter, since the 4th of July, since ten days ago, for an hour.
What to do to have an effective presentation: practice T, memorise F, 12pt type F, visuals T, Don't do small talk F (but it depends on you), jiggle your keys F.
What is channeling?: Channeling is when you become a source or messenger for a message that moves through you. It can come from anywhere, spirits or simply just getting out of the way of your own message.
Bonus: 7 signs you are channeling:
-You lose track of time.
-You feel energized.
-You feel enthused, but afterwards you feel exhausted.
-You enjoy the journey, you're not dependent on the outcome or anything outside of you.
-You get great feedback, people are "awestruck", its not that you do it better than anyone else, but you are in "the zone". People recognize that.
-You feel as if you have stepped outside of yourself, you are not thinking about you, but your purpose.
-You feel the need to move. You are not "stuck". Sitting still is very hard to do when you are channeling your energy.
When you are in the zone or channeling you have the energy that comes from your source which is your passion for what you do.

Finding the right words in English can be a challenge no matter the level of English that you have. Framing is laying out to your speech partner how you see the situation. Keeping a frame for a talk is also important when you need to have difficult conversations. You state what you need to talk about and why. That is your frame. We will talk about framing in this lesson.
