In this chapter, you'll learn the vocabulary needed when arranging or attending a meeting in China. You'll learn how to say you don't understand if you find yourself lost. You'll learn how to identify any tasks that are assigned to you, such as preparing the annual report, and giving a presentation.

At the office, Dani asks Leo how did he think the planning meeting went. Leo says it was good but he didn't understand everything. Dani says she told Jack she'd fill Leo in on any items he didn't understand. Jack asked Leo to present the annual report in English. He also wants Leo to send the document to him to review by 6pm.

You may not always understand everything spoken when you attend meetings in China. Try to stay looking alert and interested and observe the dynamics of the meeting and the body language. If meeting someone for the first time, a brief gentle handshake is best. Always have a business card ready if meeting a client or associate for the first time. It is normal to carefully exchange business cards at the beginning of a meeting.
