TOEFL iBT | Speaking | Student Success | 28 In Speaking: Collection of Audios

You guys asked for it, I delivered it! In today’s episode, there will be a number of different audios that I had told my student to send me for homework. She first joined my webinar a couple of weeks ago, then bought some coaching hours, and ultimately achieved a 28 in the speaking section of TOEFL, becoming a pharmacist in my native United States.

So, I decided to make a collection of it all, put it together, and have you guys listen to what a 26-28 sounds like (this was on coaching hour number 4 and we had a three-hour session just 36 hours before her test).

I hope you enjoy this!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Sales | Patience & Execution

It was a turbulent month (June).  So much good happened, but there were also high-los.  One issue I had this month was my expectations and how high they can be sometimes, ultimately fueling disappointment when it doesn’t go my way.

Well, let’s just say I gave away a webinar for free to a student. This particular student had a key to another door.  This student had an even more unique key to another door. And the person on the other side of the door had a master key to Eldorado.

It’s not set in stone (as of the end of June), but if this goes through, this will be the most successful business acquisition of my early training career!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 13 | Empathy At Work

Idiomin someone’s shoes
Definition: imagining yourself in the situation that someone else is in.

This is called empathy.  Although the majority of the world lacks empathy, it could be developed by putting yourself in the same position.

When was the last time you complained about something at work? What happened? How was your complaint dealt with? Were you happy with the outcome? Sometimes in business, it’s impossible to keep everyone happy all the time. Sooner or later, an eruption will happen. Customers will probably get angry, employees may complain about how they’re treated, etc. How you deal with these is crucial for business, and in today’s podcast, we discuss just that!
