Comprehensive Samples

Sample 1

Thank you, Mr. Chairperson, Mr. Director-General, distinguished members of the ILO‘s Governing Body and friends. I welcome this opportunity to be here today, with an Organization which in many ways belongs to all of us workers. I can think of, in fact, no other international body that one can claim as one‘s own so unambiguously.

I have also had a longstanding formal association with the ILO. Many of my early pieces on women and technological change and on land rights were published by the ILO, as well as was the work of many other scholars. It is therefore a pleasure for me to be here on this important Symposium.

The canvas of the Symposium is very large. I will focus on two aspects of gender inequality that centrally effect millions of women as workers but perhaps have failed to receive the attention they deserve. First, the gender gap in command over property and Productive assets and, second, gender biased social perceptions and social norms.

Sample 2

I learned last May that you have to be careful in speaking to a group of professional communicators. After I conducted a writer‘ s workshop at the Toronto Conference of the International Association of Business Communicators, Janine Lichaczwrote asked me to speak here tonight and used the communication techniques I had recommended. She even included a footnote citing my lecture. I am susceptible to good communication and to flattery so I am pleased to be with you to discuss your topic for the evening, the use of language in the art of speech writing.

I suppose we must begin by shaking our heads, woefully, over the sad state of language today, whether in formal speeches, casual conversation, or in writing. Most of us in this room no doubt agree with the generally negative tone of Time Magazine‘s year-end assessment which claims “our language has been besieged by vulgarities”. But to preserve our sanity as professionals in communication of us would probably join Time in optimistically expecting English somehow to   survive and even to prosper.

Expressions on Other Occasions

Correcting the Title of the Presentation

First of all, I would like to mention that the title of my presentation should be ...

Please allow me to correct a mistake in the title of my speech which appeared in the program. Instead of... it should read...

Reading. Another Person‘s Paper

Sometimes you are selected to read another person‘s paper, as he or she is absent.

I shall read a paper by Dr. Li from Guangzhou, china, who regrets that he could not be here. The title of his paper is...

I‘m going to read the paper by Dr. Wang. It‘s a great pity that, because of a health problem, he could not be here.

I was asked by the author to read his paper. He apologizes for not being able to come here.

The next speaker, Prof. Zhang, regrets that she could not be here and has submitted her paper to me. I am not sure if I can present it as well as she expected.

I am not sure whether I‘ 11 be able to be very confident in answering specific questions. However, I am somewhat familiar with his work, so I‘ 11 try my best.

Checking the Microphone

First I want to check if all of you can hear me clearly.

Am I speaking clearly and loudly enough for those in the rear of the room?

I wonder if those in the rear of the room can hear me.

If those in the rear of the room can hear me, would someone please raise his hand?

Can you hear me clearly?

Can you hear me if I am away from the microphone?

Is the microphone working?

Chapter II Developing the Speech Text

I. Announcing the Beginning of the Speech Text

To begin with, I would like to talk about a principle.

I think it would be best to start out by looking at some pictures.

The first thing I would like to talk about is the definition of the terms which I’11 use in my presentation.

II. Shifting to the Next Main Point

Well, let‘s move on to the next point.

We will now come to the second problem.

Turning to the next question, I‘ 11 talk about the stages of the procedure.

As the second topic, I shall stop here. Now let‘ s turn our attention to the third topic.

So much for the methodology of our experiment. I would now like to shift to the discussion of the results.

Now, let‘s move away from the first part and switch over to the next part of my presentation.

That‘s all for the introduction and now we can go on to the literature review.

Next, I would like to turn to a more difficult problem.

The next point I‘d like to talk about is the feasibility of this project.

That brings me to my second point.

I am glad that we can now leave this rather boring subject of mathematic deduction and go into a more attractive one, that is the application of the formula.

Let‘ s come back to what I said in the first part of my speech.

Getting back to the subject of the problem of theoretical considerations we can find that...

I want to return to the first part of my presentation.

Now, to get back to the effect of temperature, you may be aware that the problems have been solved.

This brings me back to the question of security.

At this point I would like to refer again to the question of methods in the first part of my lecture.

I‘ll deal with it later.

I‘ 11 touch upon that point in a moment.

I shall tell you in detail shortly.

IV. Introducing the Supporting Materials

I think this part is the most difficult, so I‘ll explain it in greater detail.

I think this part of my paper is most important, so I plan to spend more time on it.

Please allow me to deal with this matter more extensively.

Being the most important part of my presentation, I will elaborate on it with more slides.

I‘ 11 expand this topic with drawings and figures.

Indicating the Points Briefly

Limited by the time available, I can only give you a very brief account of this matter.

I don‘t think that I should describe the methods in detail, because they are included in the handout.

I will not go into detail on it.

This point has been talked about repeatedly in this symposium, so I am not going to spend too much time on it.

Let‘s go through the following points very rapidly.

I just want to outline for you what I experienced in using this new drug.

I shall not go over all these explanations. My time is running short. So I‘’11 be brief.

It is sufficient to say that these experiments were poorly designed and without controls.

V. Repairing a Slip of Tone

The first of such experiments began in 2000, rather than 1999.

May I have the lights, I mean the slides.

The temperature increased, I shall say decreased.

The population is 13 million, sorry, 31 million.

The exchange rate dropped from 2.5 to 1.8, I beg your pardon, 1.9.

The following three slides we will go through quickly without explanation.

Wait a minute, please. I want to say more about this slide.

Time is up, let‘s come to the last slide directly.

Would you please skip the next slid-e and go on to the table?

Next, next. Go ahead... That‘s it.

Chapter III Ending the Speech Text

Mr. Chairman is signaling me, I have to stop here and leave out the remaining part to spare time.

 VI. Samples

[ Sample 1 ]

We have proposed a framework of a hierarchical planning system for robots. First of all, the system is an automatic plan system that can guide the robot intelligently in terms of the environment. Secondly, it is based on hierarchical planning. The planning problem has been hierarchically decomposed into two sub-problems: global destination selection and local motion planning. And finally, the simulation and application has proved it as an effective design.

(Show the last visual)

That‘s all for my presentation. For any question to be raised, I‘m quite willing to discuss them with you at any time. Thank you, every one.

[ Sample 2 ]                                               

Finally, we can draw the conclusion: edge detection and denoising are two important branches of image processing. If we combine edge detection with denoising, we can overcome the shortcomings of the commonly-used denolsing methods and without blurring the edge notably.

Furthermore, there are many denoising and edge detection methods now. Different methods are suitable for different types of images and noise models. We can do further research on how to combine these various denoising and edge detection methods according to the content of the images and nature of noise.

That‘s all for my talk. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. I‘m quite willing to discuss them with you at any time, Thank you.

[ Sample 3 ]

That‘s all t wanted to show you about Machine Vision and one of its applications, AGV. Thank you!

[ Sample 4 ]

 (Turn to 12th ppt) OK, that is all I‘m going to talk today.

Thank you !

[ Sample 5 ]

That‘s all. Thank you!

Chapter IV Asking and Answering Questions

I. Inviting Questions

So, let‘s throw it open to questions.

Now I‘ d like to answer any questions, if you have any.

Now I am ready to answer your questions, if any.

I‘d be glad to try and answer any questions.

Are there any questions?

Any questions?

II. Raising Questions

Signaling Your Intention to Ask a Question

I want to ask Dr. bi a question.

I have a guest ion for Dr. Anderson.

Mr. Smith, I have a question to ask you.

There is a question I‘d like to ask Prof. Li.

A question for Mr. Liu.

One question, Dr. Wei.

Could I ask you a question, Prof. Li?

May I venture to ask Prof. Zhang a question?

Expressing Your Attitude

Before asking your question, you can express your positive attitude or make a comment on the speaker‘s presentation. For example,

Dr. Johnson, I was fascinated by your description of your study, but what will happen if...

Mr. Li, you did splendid work! Just one question.

Asking the Specific Question

You mentioned very briefly that you used two experiments that were the same.

Would you please elaborate on that point?

Would you be so kind as to give me more information about the method of your experiment?

Would you tell me the reason why you set such a high temperature?

Comprehensive Samples

Dr. Wang, I‘d like to raise one question. First, may I say how much I enjoyed talk. But, may I ask, do you have experience with the new method?

Congratulations, Dr. Li. I can‘t help but admire your achievement. But I want to know what‘s your attitude toward abuse of antibiotics?

I‘d like to congratulate Mr. Liu on a very interesting presentation.

May I ask you a question? How does subjective evaluation differ from objective evaluation?

First, I‘d like to say your research is very interesting. May I ask two questions? Do you see any relation between cigarette smoking and peptic ulcers? And what advantage do you expect by using this approach?

III. Response to Questions

Asking for Repetition

Pardon, I couldn‘t hear what you said.

I beg your pardon, I didn‘t catch what you said.

I‘m sorry I forgot your first question. Would you be so kind as to say it again?

I‘m not quite surge what your question is.

I didn‘t quite get the last point of your question.

You mean, there may be some mistake in the calculation?

Are you referring to the significance of the difference?

Are you suggesting that the temperature might have affected the results?

If I understand you correctly, you are saying/asking...

I didn‘t quite catch that.

Could you go over that again?

I‘m not sure what you‘re getting at.

Welcoming the Question

Welcome the question by saying "thank you" or commenting on it saying "That’s a good question" or "That‘s a challenging question."

This is a very good question.

Thank you for that question.

I‘m glad this question has been brought up-

I appreciate that question.

This is a hard question.

This is an interesting question.

This is a big question.

I‘d be delighted to answer your question.

I‘ll try to answer this question very briefly.

In answer to your question, I would say that...

I can only provide a partial answer to that question.

Let me try to answer your questions one by one.

My answer to your first question is...

May I answer your second cjuestion first?

I have only a partial answer to your question.

Thank you for that question. This is a challenging question and I‘m afraid I can only provide a partial answer to it. Anyway, I‘ll try my best to answer it.

Repeating or Paraphrasing the Question

Questioner: Have you tried it on human bodies?

Presenter: This gentleman would like to know whether we have tried this on human bodies.

Responding to Difficult or Challenging Question

Question: So what happens if the new budget isn‘t approved?

Answer (1): We‘ve spent two months preparing the new budget. It‘s a good budget and we‘re confident we‘ll get approval to put it into practice.

Answer (2): There is too much supposition in the question for me to give a sound answer.

The following are some other examples of answers to challenging questions:

Perhaps in another year or so we can answer that question, because these studies are now in progress.

We are now working on this problem and, if you agree, I‘ll answer your question in a few weeks.

The only answer I can give at present is to wait a few more years, at which time something better might ultimately come out of all our efforts.

I think it will be possible to answer this question when more experiments are completed.

The answer to this question needs further study.

I hope I will be able to answer your question later.

Responding to Improper Question

I appreciate your interest in my research, but I just don‘t want to talk about it now. Let‘s talk about something else.

I‘d rather not say.            

Why do you want to know?

Sometimes you can relay the question back to the questioner. For example,

Before I answer you that question, let me ask you: where do you think we should have the project?

In this way, sometimes you encourage the questioner to answer his or her own question, e.g. "What do you think? Are people prepared to pay an extra $ 2 for faster service?"

Responding to the Questions You Do Not Know

If you don‘t know the answer to a particular question, simply admit that you don‘t know. Say something like this:

 "I‘m sorry. I don‘t happen to know the answer to that question, but I‘ll be happy to check into it for you."

Here are some further examples:

I don‘t think I can answer your question.

I wish I could answer your question, but unfortunately I have no good answer.

I‘m not sure that I can answer your question. What I‘m going to say is not quite an answer to your question.

Another technique to cope with the situation is to direct the attention to another expert who may know it or you can use the audience. Ask if anyone could help the questioner and hence it won‘t be necessary for you to admit that you do not know the answer. See examples below.

I think that question could be better answered by Dr. Liu than by me.

I think perhaps Dr. Chen would be better able to answer this question.

Prof. Li would be a better person to answer your question since he has done a lot of work in this field.

Fortunately, Prof. ‘Ma, who is an authority in this area, is ‘here. I think no one is more suitable than him to answer your question.

Dr. Sawyer is perhaps in a better position to tell us something about it.

Perhaps my colleague Dr. Emery here has some better ideas.

I think it would be better if Prof. Wu were to make some comments on this matter.

Avoid using the following expressions to embarrass the questioner:

"I‘ve already answered that but you obviously weren‘t listening." Instead say something like "I‘m sorry I didn‘t explain that clearly."

Avoid talking to one questioner. Look towards the other, side of the conference hall or room and indicate that there is another question. Suggest that as there are several more questioners,‘ yon could discuss his or her question in more detail after your talk.

Referring Back to the Questioner

Having finished answering questions, you should check that the questioner is satisfied or further elaboration or explanation is called for. The following expressions might be helpful.

Did I answer your question?

Did I answer you satisfactorily?

Did your question get answered?

I don‘t know whether this answered your question.

I don‘t know if this is a satisfactory answer.

I hope this may serve as an answer to Dr. Li.

I hope this answers ~0ur question.:,        

Sometimes when question lime is over and ff time permits, you can restate, your main proposition, including any good comments from the audience and ignoring adverse questions or remarks. Thus, you demonstrate that you are confident mid can cope calmly with controversy.

Remember that your last words to the audience will be retained longest and you are expected to behave in a professional manner.

 


Chapter V Talking During the Break

I. Useful encouraging phrases to show your interest and to stimulate the flow of conversation

B: That doesn‘t matter. Dr. Abel? Isn‘t he the keynote speaker tomorrow?

A: Yes, that‘s right. He‘s the American scholar on Electronics. Mr. Li should have picked him up, but he had an accident yesterday morning. Nothing serious, but something was wrong with his car.

B: Well, what‘s new in your department since I left?

A: Oh, nothing, really. How are you enjoying the work?

B: Oh, it‘s very interesting, I must say. I‘ve learnt a lot. Perhaps we‘ll find time to talk about it. We‘ve had some interesting results.

A: Would you like to have dinner with me?

B: Yes, that would be very nice.

One Participant Being Introduced to another Participant

A: Dr. Kerridge, may I introduce you to Dr. Hyman?

B: Glad to meet you. 

C: Glad to meet you too.

B: I‘m pleased to meet you at last. I‘ve heard so much about you from Dr. Liu. I belive you‘re doing research in the field of statistics.

C: That‘s right.

B: I was most interested to hear about your recent paper on descriptive statistics. Do you think you could let me have a copy?                  

C: I‘d be delighted to. In fact, I‘ve got a few. spare copies with me. I‘ll bring one with me tomorrow.

B: Thank you very much.

B: Yes.

A: Let me introduce myself. I‘m Li Hong from China.

B: Nice to meet you, Mr. Li.

A: Nice to meet you too. I‘d appreciate the chance to talk to you some time.

B: That‘s very kind of you. What do you think of the morning session?

A: It‘s been most interesting so far, hasn‘t it?

III. Additional Samples

[sample l]

A: Excuse me, could you tell me where Professor Dubrovik‘s talk will be held?

B: I beg your pardon?

A: I didn‘t quite understand the announcement in the plenary session.

B: I‘m sorry, but I didn‘t quite understand you. Would you mind repeating that, please?

A: I would like to know where Professor Dubrovnik is.                           

B: Ah, Professor Dubrovnik! He‘s in Room 203.

A: Thank you very much.

B: Not at all. Do you know, Dr. C, I believe my English is getting worse, not better.

C: No, no, Dr. B. I‘m afraid I didn‘t understand that gentleman either.

B: Well, thank goodness for that. Now, where is that new interdisciplinary group meeting?

C: I think they said in the small room next to the main lecture hall.

B: Ah, yes. There it is. Thank you.

C: I‘ll see you later for lunch, then. I hope you enjoy the morning session.

B: Thanks. I‘m sure I will. Same to you!

C: Oh, Dr. B.

B: Yes?

C: If you wait for me after the session, I‘ll come and pick you up.

B: Fine, I‘ll do that.

 [ Sample 2]

A: Ah, there you are, Dr B! How did your meeting go?

B: It was very interesting, but I must admit, I found some parts very difficult to understand.

A: Oh, why was that?

B: Well, a lot of members in the group used specialist vocabulary, and it wasn‘t always easy to understand what they meant.

A: Yes, I know what you mean. I often have the same difficulties at conferences like this. Sometimes I have the feeling that they are speaking a foreign language, even though I know that they‘re using English! I‘m sure I would have had the same trouble if I‘d been in your group.

B: Still, I got a lot out of the group discussion, and I‘m looking forward to the afternoon session.

A: Good. Now what about a drink? All this talking makes a man thirsty!

B: Good idea! It‘s my turn, I think.

B: Oh, you are Dr A. I‘ve known you by name through a number of papers on... I‘m so    glad to meet you. I think our work may be similar and I‘d like to hear your views.

A: I‘ll be very glad to do so. But first I‘d like to ask a question. How did you separate these two fractions? Did you use an ordinary chromatographic method?

B: No, it‘s not that simple because their retention times are very similar. That makes it difficult to find a really appropriate separation column.

A: How did you manage it?

B: We used a kind of trick which turned out to be surprisingly successful. The trick was to use an optically active urea lattice which forms a diastereoisomeric pair when mixed with the material .to be solved.

A: I‘m not familiar with the urea technology. I‘d like to hear more...

B: May I have one of the leaflets?

A: By all means. Here you are.

B: Thank you.

A: I wonder if you could send me a publication copy of your paper when it‘s ready.

B: Certainly, I’ll be glad to do so; May I have your home address?

A: Of course. Let me write it for you.

B: Please put it in my notebook, if you don‘t mind.

A: Please keep me informed of the progress of your work.

B: Goodbye !
