Hello dear Allen and Torsten,

The first thing she recommended was for us to coordinate all the people whe were involved.

There is a typing mistake "we", but my question to this sentece is if I could say: "we are getting involved", in case the whole event isn't plant at this time of stage?

Thank you in advance,
best wishes

Hi Judith,

Thanks for pointing out the typo. Yes, it's all right to say 'We are getting involved' in the sense that we are beginning to become involved or on the point of becoming involved.

Alan

Test No. incompl/advan-60 "Working Well", question 1

The boss was appointed in the hope that she would be able to ......... results.

(a) find
(b) seek
(c) achieve
(d) manage

Test No. incompl/advan-60 "Working Well", answer 1

The boss was appointed in the hope that she would be able to achieve results.

Correct answer: (c) achieve

Dear Alan, once more

i'm confused with this one..."in the hope" in this sentence. as somebody (appointed- translation into german) "was appointed to consider if somebody is able to achieve results". please could you clarify it for me.

In the hope... #5 (permalink) Thu Jan 29, 2004 16:04 pm   In the hope...
 

Hi Judith,

The sentence means: They appointed her because they hoped she would be able to achieve results/make the company successful.

Another example: We created this website in the hope that people would be able to try the tests

Any good?

Alan

dear Alan,

your example with the website is clear, but i'm still unsure about the boss.
so could i say "The boss appointed her in the hope that she would be able to achieve results" and it would have the same meaning?

best wishes

I think the correct word is listen. Listening means having someone to pay attention to what you are saying and hearing lacks of this.
