Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 8: Episode 5 | How to Plan Ahead for Phone Calls in English

Sometimes when we make phone calls with friends, we kind of just “wing” the conversation, meaning it’s just random chit chat. However, the reason why you don’t make phone calls in English, even putting them off, is because you’re afraid, right? I’ve been there. I was terrified of calling ANYONE about ANYTHING when I was younger, and in today’s podcast, I will give you some useful techniques for planning ahead.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 21 | Conversation Gambits: What Topics to Avoid

When it comes to starting conversations, it’s really hit or miss. If you talk about football with a woman, more than likely they will be clueless.

If you find it hard to start conversations, you need to take notes in this podcast and start building up the conversation starters!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 10 | Workplace Scenario: Marketing & IT Problems

Today’s podcast is going to be a situational one where you hear a couple of individuals within a company ‘pass the buck’ around. So, when this happens, you need to figure out a way to tackle the problem, and if you have someone in your department that knows how to do follow-ups, have meetings (successful ones), and others, you know they may be getting paid the big bucks. If there isn’t a manager within your company or a voice within your household who do not possess these leadership characteristics, it’s up to you to develop them and make a career out of them!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 8 | How to Initiate Conversations in Business Settings

Whether you’re at a seminar or your first-ever meeting, how do you initiate a conversation? Most of you find it daunting to do so and believe me, I was that same person back in my freshman year of high school. This was with my BAND MATES!

In today’s podcast, I’ll teach you the basics of how you can do this in the world of business.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 5 | Is Being Lazy Good Long-term?

A ridiculous author wrote a book with one of his children in regards to “being lazy is great” and how “lazing around is great for long-term health.” Well, COVID begs to differ. News media around the world was telling us to stay home and not move when in actuality, brisk walks help strengthen the immune system. Being lazy makes your body lethargic, and will very well lead to underlying illnesses. However, academics say that being lazy is great and you shouldn’t work out.  You guys know how I feel about these subjects, so in today’s podcast, I’m going to help you and identifying bulls***. Lol

Business English Podcast Interviews | Ebru from Turkey | Being Trilingual, Deflecting Perfectionism, & Growth Mindset

I was invited into a group full of Business English Podcast trainers/coaches, and I was fortunate enough to meet Ebru — a business English trainer in the UK.  Oh, there’s so much in this podcast, from her moving to the UK, to learning a lot from her father that inspired her to establish the Growth Mindset.  We also did a speaking activity to shine some beautiful life on our past experiences (relatable to IELTS Speaking Part II) and her Rite of Passage in Vietnam (such as what I had in Da Lat two years ago, too). This was a ray of light, and I hope you guys enjoy this!
