実ビジ・ディクテーション:9/13:Brand Ambassadors in Action(5)

Collins says students ambassadors can earn up to several thousand $ a year and requiredacquire skills that help withtheir job research after graduation.

She also says there was confusion in athe past about what was ethical.And thethat reputable companies now make sure their ambassadors are open to their activities.

However one student told Umemura she thought companies were taking advantages of people's desire to help their friends

Disoriented;

A disoriented person is confused about where they are , where they are going, what they are doing

I got very disoriented myself on one of my first days at colleadge

All the buildings looked the same at night and I couldnt figure out where I was or how to get to my dorm.

Anywhere from to:

Anywhere, anything within this range, Collins says is saying.

A hotel room can cost anywhere from 10 thousand yen to 50 thousand yen, you might say.

Or the company plans to hire anywhere from 20 to 30 new employees

Win-win scenario:

Lyons uses this to mean a situation where both of 2 sides benefit.

For example I just saw an article that said direct yen, yuan trading between Japan and CHina would be

win win for both countries.

I've also heard this use in situations where 1 person or party has 2 good choices.

Imagine, you're trying to choose between 2 different cars.

Both have good mileage and other fetures, so it's a win win situation.

Either choice would be fine.

Make a point of:

This means making sure to do something you're considering important to treat a certain action as essential.

You might make a point of returing emails within 24 hours, for exsample. Or make a point of taking the stairs instead of the elevators.

Disclose:

This is to make something known, reveal it.

Cabinets menbers disclose their personal assets every year for example.

Or a company will get in trouble if it doesn't disclose all they think ofits income.

Right.And you'll often see the term, full disclosure, which refers to being completely open and honest about someghing or

revealing all the facts.

Push:

In this case, push means attempt to get someone to buy something or accept it.

It can be a noun, for exmaple,

XY electronics is giving its new computer a big push with an enormous ad campaign.

Strike a balance between:

Achieve a balance between two things, Lyon's saying, achieve a compromise.

Businesses try to strike a balance between making a profit and protecting the environment.

Company and employees try to strike a balance between working and family.

Forthright:

If someone's forthright, they are direct and honest.

Imagine a seminer are unti ownership on entrepreneurship opening one's own business.

Hopefully the presenters wouldwill be forthright about all challenges and riks involved.
