Nikola, I didn’t win anything in the sushi competition. I’m really disappointed.
Don’t be sad. Great sushi chefs from around the world come here. You did your best.
I didn’t get a prize, because I didn’t prepare well enough.
Don’t say that, Borys. You should be proud of being here.
Thanks, Nikola. I’ll learn more techniques and come back again next year.
That’s the spirit. You’ll definitely get a prize someday!
Jonas, sorry I’m late. Just as I was leaving the office, the boss told me he couldn’t attend the party.
So, you are going to welcome the new employees?
OK. Let’s get this show on the road!
Hi, everyone! I’m sorry to have kept you waiting. Now, without further ado, let’s give a very warm welcome to our three new recruits. Jonas. A toast, please!
To a bright future for our company. Cheers!
Hi, Andrew. How was your weekend?
It was great. I went to Hirosaki and saw the cherry blossoms.
Oh, that’s one of Japan’s best cherry blossom spots.
Right. And the castle makes it even more special. How was your weekend?
Good. As it was sunny, we decided to have a barbecue. All the shogi club members attended.
That sounds enjoyable too.
Yes. Sota, our club leader, played shogi on the grill with the shrimp.
As you know, we’re having the company-wide meeting next week.
Yes, you must be very busy preparing for it.
You can say that again.
Do you need any help?
Actually, I do. I need to make a presentation, and I want to include some background music. Could you find me something suitable?
Sure. What kind do you need?
Something very upbeat. I want to impress our sales staff.
OK, let me think about it.

I’ll call you back as soon as possible.

Just as I was leaving home, the phone rang. It was my mom.
She got a flat tire and asked for help. That’s why I’m late.
