6 minute English © bbclearningenglish.com 2009 Page 1 of 4 BBC Learning English 6 minute English Mr Smith or John? Jackie: Hello, this is 6 minute English. I’m Jackie Dalton and with me today is Neil Edgeller. Hello, sir! Neil: Sir! Very unusual, you don’t usually call me ‘sir’, Jackie! Jackie: I don’t, usually - I usually call you Neil, don’t I? Neil: Yes, you do. Jackie: And that’s because we’re colleagues and the way we interact in the office is pretty informal really – it’s quite relaxed, we’re just use each others’ first names. And the reason I called you ‘sir’ is because the topic of today’s programme is formality, or lack of formality at work. So, do you work somewhere where you can behave in a relaxed way around colleagues, or do you have to be very polite and maybe a bit distant? Is there a dress code? Neil: Yes a dress-code is the rules for what you should wear in a certain situation. So if a restaurant has a ‘no jeans’ policy, or dress-code, it means you have to wear smart trousers, you’re not allowed in if you wear jeans.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
