Step 2. Find an article in a newspaper that deals with one of the restructuring measures mentioned in the book. Make notes on what you read and summarise the main points, so that you can repeat the story for a colleague who doesn t have access to the original article. Step 3. Work with a pair and take turns in summarising the main ideas of your articles. The listener should write notes while listening. Remember to help the listener by e.g. adding structuring language. Step 4. Find a new pair and tell the story that you just heard to them based on your notes. The listener should again take notes and repeat the story that you just told to a new pair. Step 5. Repeat the last piece of news that you heard to the whole class and see if it had changed on the way. 13 1_4_EXTRAS

16 7. EK business trend survey See p. 52 a) Vocabulary Take a look at the vocabulary list at the bottom of the page 52 and see if you already know the words in Finnish or if you can come up with the meaning by reading the definitions. Finnish 1) balance figure 2) carry out 3) Confederation of Finnish Industries 4) employ 5) forecast 6) increase 7) input 8) major turn 9) moderate 10) output 11) peak 12) prediction 13) prospects 14 1_4_EXTRAS

17 14) respondent 15) stable 16) survey 17) trend b) Word Explanation It is sometimes said that badly spoken English is the most common language in today s global business world. Whatever the case may be, it is still evident that it is not enough to know all the fancy words in English but it becomes increasingly important to be able to explain terms and concepts in a simple enough manner so that the other person understands what you are talking about. Playing word explanation games provides good practice for this. Form small groups. Each group takes the following table, cuts it in pieces and takes turns in picking up a paper slip and explaining the word to others. You can add your own words to the table. Do not use the words in the paper but find a way of explaining the word so that the others can guess what it is. The winner is the one who guesses most words correctly! 15 1_4_EXTRAS

21 9. Trend expressions On the grid, draw a simple line graph of your own any topic. Create and label the horizontal/vertical axes to fit your topic (time frame, quantities etc).

23 10. Linking cause and effect In your business studies you will see that events and actions are frequently linked with their cause and effect and that you will need to show this in your assignments and presentations.

Here are some examples below: EFFECT TO CAUSE The rise in sales was due to the reduction in price. Volkswagen s fall in profits was caused by weakening demand in America. The improvement in the was brought about by Nokia s profit forecast. Helsinki stock market The current economic is the result of the sub prime crisis. slowdown Strike action resulted from threats to close the factory.
