実ビジ:9/6:Brand Ambassadors in Action(2)

Umemura and Collins describe the respoisibilities of a brand ambassoder, which include assisting customers,encouragnig them to petronaize a certain company, and creating brand awareness.

Umemura says H and B provide such services at universities as helping students move in and giving welcome dinner.

Activities that appeared to leave a good impression of the company.

Lyons asks about the benefits of establishing ambassadors toat colleages.

Imply:

This means to hint at some meaning to suggest that meaning

without saying it outright such as "are you implying that I lied?"

without actually saying that I lied.

Freshmen:

First year college students, in other words.

The singular is freshman man. Second year students are sophomores.

Third year students are juniors. And fourth year students are seniors.

And the US uses these names for high school students as well.

Because high school is also a four year system there.

And I'd say Freshman is most commonly used to refer to students, but it does appear in situations like ,

a freshman senator, meaning a senator in his or her first term.

dorm:

This is short for dormitory, and I'd say dorm is more common than the long version.

Frosh: This is short for "freshmen." I've also seen, Soph- Soph for sophmore

but mostly in headlines, use for space reasons I think.

I personally wouldn't use these words much in writing or speaking.

Come away with:

This measn to leave some experience with a certain impression or result.

Imagine, you attended an excellent seminer on personal finance.

You could say,

I came away with a lot of information on how to save for retirement.

reach out:

Make a special effort to help someoen or communicate with them, as if

youwe were literally reaching out yourour hand.

PriestsPolice sentand no profit organizations mymight reach out to troubled young people, for example.

There is also noun, out reach, as in, Tokyo police have launched an out reach program to help troubled kids.

Cash-strapped:

If I am cash-strapped, I don't have enough cash, I mean, I am in need of it.

We also say, be strapped for something, as in,

I can't take a vacation this year, I'm really strapped for cash.

Or imagine someone asks you to lunch,

you might reply, I am sorry, i can't I am really strapped for time today.
