Reconciliation Idioms

Step 1

Study the PowerPoint to learn this week’s idioms.

Step 2

Now that you are a little more familiar with the idioms, listen to the dialogue. Can you hear the idioms in the conversation?


Now, read the script of the dialog. Listen to the dialog again. This is one of the best ways to build your listening skills!

Alex:Hi Jay, how are you? How is work?
Jay:Hello Alex, meh… same old, same old, I suppose… I am a little unhappy at work right now. I guess I am sick of always toeing the line.
Alex:I hear you! I used to be like that. I’ve been thinking what to do to take the edge off and I came up with two strategies how to go with the flow.
Jay:Oh, do tell…
Alex:First, learn how to make amends when you are wrong. And ask for others to do the same when they do you wrong.
Jay:Easier said than done…
Alex:True, but it works. You want to hear my second strategy?
Alex:You need to learn how to roll with the punches. Be flexible and don’t take things too personally!
Jay:That is a good one, I guess I can try that one.
Alex:Try both, I promise it will make your life at work easier! It worked for me, let me know if it works for you too.
Jay:I will. Thank you Alex!
Alex:Happy to help! Good luck!
Jay:Thanks! Bye, Alex!
Alex:Bye, Jay!
