そう言えばビジネス英語を教えてた頃、下にある教材シリーズを使ってて、チャプター毎にこう言う会話＆リスニング用の mp3 か CDがありました（レッスン中に読み上げたりも）。ふと思い出したので、自分の SMART goal と照らし合わせてプロジェクトマネージャーとちょっと話してるのを想像しながら書いた会話です（笑）。
ビジネス英語（多分英検準1級や1級辺りの方も…）の high intermediate や advanced の方向けの無料リスニング教材！今回のは実際の会話を想像していつもよりスピード上げて話してます。誉め言葉への返し方や empathy を表現する言い回し等も入ってます（が解説入れる余裕はありませんでした！ごめんなさい）。
Hi, Yumi. How’re you doing?
Busy, but good. You?
Haha! Same here. Anyway, thanks for coming today. I just wanted to check in with you to see how you were doing with your project.
Thanks. It’s going pretty well. So far, I’ve been able to post something every day, just like I said I would.
That’s great! I’ve been reading your content, and I think you’re doing a really good job.
Thanks. That’s definitely nice to hear.
I mean it. But… I am also a little worried about you. You seem a bit overwhelmed. Is there anything you might want to share with me?
Oh. You noticed, huh? Okay. I’ll be honest. Like I said, this one-post-a-day SMART goal has been a lot of fun. It’s challenging, but it’s forcing me to be more decisive and also get used to using my blog tools. Both things I wanted.
The only thing is, when I made my goal, I’d forgotten this was a busy month for my husband as well, so that means I’m a lot busier at home, too. I really feel like I bit off more than I could chew… at least without feeling overwhelmed.
Wow. Yeah. I get it. I’ve been there. Listen. You do realize you don’t have to do one post a day, right? We can change your goal. That’s why we’re having this check-in. I respect and appreciate your dedication, but I care about you, and I don’t want you to get burned out, either.
Thanks for saying that. I really appreciate you being so understanding, but I actually do want to follow through with my current goal. I don’t want to give up!
Haha! Alright. As long as you want to do it. But let’s think of a way to make things easier for you. Have any ideas?
