Learn techniques to understand American colleagues in conf calls--save time, money, and embarrassment!

1. Use an agenda, that you prepare BEFORE your conf call. This makes it easier to follow the discussion.
2. Use what you already know about the context to help you understand. DO NOT try to understand every word. This makes it more difficult and tiring.
3. Ask for clarification. In the episode, you get 3 expressions to ask for clarification the same way native speakers do (because sometimes we don't understand too!)
4. Transcribe the conf call (or at least the most difficult / important parts). I recommend the site rev.com for quick, inexpensive transcription services.
