Let's Learn English 2- Lesson 1: Budget Cuts:

AnnaHum. Oh! “Important meeting. Everyone must come.” Well, back to work! And my boss has called a meeting. I wonder what it's about. Maybe we're all getting raises! Ooo, there's Jonathan! Maybe he knows.
Professor BotHi! I'm Professor Bot! This video is all about work. People talk about jobs and things that happen at work. Your assignment is to find as many work words as you can. Don't worry, I'll help.
AnnaSo, Jonathan, what do you think today's meeting is about? The email sounded important.
JonathanWell, I have heard people in the building talking about budget cuts.
AnnaOh! Budget cuts? Wait, who has been talking about budget cuts?
JonathanMark in Accounting.
AnnaMark in Accounting? That's one person. That's not “people.”
JonathanI know, but Mark knows everything that goes on at The Studio.
AnnaThat is true. But wait, look at us. We shouldn't gossip. That's how rumors start. We'll just go to the meeting and see what happens.
JonathanYou're right. No more talk about budget cuts.
AmeliaBudget cuts? Oh no!
AmeliaI just heard Anna and Jonathan talking about budget cuts.
KavehThat must be what the meeting is about. When there are budget cuts, people lose their jobs.
AmeliaNot you. You're a good reporter.
KavehAnd it's not you. You've done a great job as a videographer.
AmeliaI can't go back to being a detective. Criminals scare me!
KavehAnd I can't go back to being a teacher! High school kids scare me!
Professor BotDid you hear any work words? They talked about a lot of jobs. You can make the name of a job by adding an ending to a verb! Kaveh reports, so, he's a reporter. Amelia used to detect, so she was a detective. If you teach, you're a teacher. And a videographer….uh, I think you understand. Back to the story.
KavehPenelope, have you heard the news? Today's meeting is about budget cuts.
PenelopeThat's awful! What should I do?
KavehUpdate your résumé. I’ve already updated mine. I’ll see you at the meeting.
Ms. WeaverHello everyone! Quiet, please. Quiet, please!
Ms. WeaverThis meeting won’t take long. Then you can all leave.
Ms. WeaverWhat is wrong with everyone? You look like I'm going to fire you. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Seriously, what is wrong with everyone?
AnnaExcuse me, Ms. Weaver?
Ms. WeaverYes, Anna.
AnnaWell, everyone has been worrying about, you know … We’ve been worrying that you are going to fire us!
Ms. WeaverI’m not going to fire any of you! No! The reason for this meeting is to tell you what a good job you’ve been doing and give out new assignments. Budget cuts have been happening. But only one person has lost their job -- Mark in Accounting? Now, let’s talk about those new assignments.
Professor BotMs. Weaver's team is doing a good job! How did you do? Did you find all of the work words? Here's a list you can check.
