Saying it appropriately

Compare the way Emily says the word says really in two extracts from a conversation, which one shows she’s interested? (Track 12)

Get speaking

Your boss has asked to talk to you. When you hear the beep, respond to his questions according the following cues. (Track16)

Boss: I’ve got some news. I’ve just found out that they won’t renew our lease on this building, so we’re going to have to find a new office space.
You: (Empathize with your boss.)
Boss: The good thing is that we don’t have to be out until the start of next year.
You: (Echo what he says.)
Boss: And so we’ve got plenty of time to sort everything out. I’d like you to go away and do some research about potential new sites.
You: (Paraphrase what he says.)
Boss: That’s right. And we should put a bit more in the budget for rent next year.
You: (Agree with him.)
