All the way from London I’ll see you tomorrow good bye goodbye okay now let’s look at vocabulary so mr. Lewis says those new positions are in sales IT development and tech support.

So IT what does this mean well it is in fact an abbreviation and it means information technology IT is information technology and it simply means it’s the field of computing


Computing Department:

So the subject of computing example we can say I work in IT so this means.

I work in the computing department or I work in the field of IT my job is in computers another example mark is studying.

Tech support tech support this is an abbreviation for technical support.

If you have a problem with a computer awesome software then you call tech support to help so sometimes called a hotline or a helpline.


I would like to schedule another meeting with you mr. Lewis schedule and in fact this has two different types of pronunciation and this is the American pronunciation schedule schedule okay.

But there is also a British English pronunciation schedule schedule okay so here we are using it as a verb to schedule and it means to organize.

The date and time of an event or appointment example.

Let’s schedule the interview for next week and schedule can also be a noun and it means so your diary or your availability.

The manager says let’s have a meeting when are you available and Mark replies I will check my schedule and call you okay so this was the British English pronunciation.

I will check my schedule and call you and with the American pronunciation mark would say.

I will check my schedule and call you okay and finally play it by ear let’s have the first meeting.

Next Tuesday and then we can play it by ear after that so play it by ear is an idiom it’s an expression.

So it’s not a literal meaning and the real meaning is to decide how to manage.

A situation as it develops so in other words we are flexible we are not following a strict plan.

Let me give you a better example so the context is Jane and Mark are going to the cinema before the film.

They have this conversation mark asks would you like to go for a meal after.


The film Jane replies I don’t know let’s watch the film and then play it by ear so Jane is saying.

Let’s not follow a strict plan let’s not decide now.

We will decide later okay so play it by ear and the origin and literal meaning of play.

It by ear well it comes from music so to play a musical composition without reading the music so without reading the music.

If someone plays the piano or the violin without reading music then they are playing.
