  Mr. Kim: Welcome to our company. My name is Kyu Kim.
               I'm in charge of export department. Let me give you my business card.
  Mr. Smith: I'll give you mine too.


  Mr. Kim: How was your flight?
  Mr. Smith: Not bad, but I'm little tired.


  Mr. Kim: Here's your schedule. After this meeting, we will visit the  factory and
               have another meeting with  the production manager. 
               And you'll be having dinner with our director.


  Mr. Smith: Could you arrange a meeting with your boss?
  Mr. Kim: Of course, I've arranged it at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.


  Mr. Smith: Well, shall we get down to business?
  Mr. Kim: Sure, did you receive the sample we sent last week?
  Mr. Smith: Yes, we finished the evaluation[평가] of it. 
                 If the price is acceptable to us, we would place trial order now.
  Mr. Kim: I'm very glad to hear that.


  Mr. Smith: What's your best price for that item?
  Mr. Kim: The unit price is U$12.50 FOB Pusan.  [FOB = free on board]


  Mr. Smith: I think the price is a little high, can't you reduce the price?
  Mr. Kim: I'm afraid  I can't. U$12.50 is our
rock bottom price.
              If you purchase more than 10,000 per order, we can reduce to U$12.00.


  Mr. Smith: Well, I'll accept the  price and place initial order of 10,000pcs.
                 By the way, can you accept L/C(letter of credit)?
  Mr. Kim: Sure, when do you want them shipped?


  Mr. Smith: Can you deliver the goods by Mar. 31?
  Mr. Kim: Of course.   
 


Pronounciation Clinic

 

/nd/, /nt/의 동화

/nd/, /nt/가 모음 사이에 오게 되면 /d/음이나 /t/이 /n/음에 동화되어 거의 발음되지 않습니다. 다시 말하면, /d/나/t/음이
/n/과 같아져서 거의 발음되지 않거나 생략되는 경우가 있습니다. 그러나 주의할 점은 /nd/, /nt/다음에 강세가 오면 원래음대로 /nd/, /nt/를 발음해야 합니다.
