Conversations In English That Help Language Learners With English Comprehension ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/conversations-in-english-12/
Working from home has gone from being rare to commonplace during the pandemic. There are positive and negative aspects to this new way of working, and in today’s English lesson we will focus on the positive. This contemporary and topical English listening lesson is full of useful conversational English vocabulary and phrases. Remember to listen to the conversation several times using spaced repetition.
Working from home is not a new idea, but until the pandemic came along and forced many people to stay home and work, it was never really an idea that employers felt comfortable with. No employer could afford to take the risk of trying working from home on a large scale and see the experiment fail. So the idea remained an idea that employers could not afford to try, and we continued to travel to work in offices and change remained unlikely.
Now, because of the pandemic, businesses do not have a choice and are conducting the experiment, anyway. Businesses in the UK have had the British taxpayer pay the bills for staff working from home, and now 18 months later the experiment nobody could afford before has finished and what are the results? Well, they are interesting and you will need to listen to the podcast to find out more.
The thing that’s been positively surprising to people is that people are more productive working at home than people would have expected. Some people thought that everything was just going to fall apart, and it hasn’t. And a lot of people are actually saying that they’re more productive now.
