English coversation between Manager and new joinee in the company

III. Alice has taken up a summer job at Curious Market
Research Bureau. She meets the manager of ‘Wonder looks’,
a firm manufacturing mirrors:

Alice : I’m Alice Caroll. I’m on a summer job at Curious
Market Research Bureau.

Manager : Please be seated.

Alice : Dormouse is planning to introduce a unique printer.
Before launching their product, they’d like to have a
feel of the field. Can I ask you a few questions in this
connection, please?

Manager : Yes, please proceed.

Alice : How many printers do you have in your office?

Manager : We have seven.

Alice : How many inkjet and how many laser?

Manager : Three laser and four inkjet.

Alice : What make do you have right now?

Manager : Three HP and four Canon.

Alice : Do you have a printer cum copier cum scanner?

Manager : Yes, we do have.

Alice : What about a 4-in-one – printer, scanner, copier and

Manager : Yes, we do have one of that too.

Alice : Now this product that Dormouse is launching, is a

Manager : What is that?

Alice : It can print, copy, fax, scan, skim and skip.

Manager : Skim and skip?

Alice : Yes. You see, you have a Board meeting in 10
minutes. There’s a 40 page report in your system,
which has just been mailed to you. You ought to go
through it before the meeting. The skim facility, skims
the entire matter, skips all unnecessary /additional
details, puts together the overview alone in bullet
format and gives you the hard copy – maybe a couple
of pages – all in twenty seconds flat. This saves a lot
of time, ink and paper. Doesn’t that sound interesting?

Manager : Yes, it does.

Alice : Would you like to buy one, when it is launched?

Manager : Yes, we would. But, what would be the cost?

Alice : You could skip that question. It would cost the same
as your 4-in-one.

Manager : How sleek would it look?

Alice : Skip that too. It’s as sleek as your ‘Wonder looks’.

Task 1: Practise the above conversation taking turns.

Task 2: You work for a Market Research Bureau. A herbal
company would like to launch a new range of beauty
products. Interview a few college students as to whether
they would buy it.
