Now listen to a recording of a model summary.
Conduct a negotiation, involving bargaining and making concessions and accepting and confirming. Work in pairs, A and B. With your partner, choose one of the following topics:
a) negotiating advertising space at soccer matches
b) negotiating purchase of a luxury apartment in Tokyo's Shinjuku district.
If you choose the first topic, look at File cards 18A (p. 93) and 18B (p. 96).
If you choose the second topic, look at File cards 19A (p. 94) and 19B (p. 97).
When you have finished one role play, either switch roles and repeat the exercise using the same topic, or change A and B and do the other topic. This way, both parties in the pair can practice buying and selling.
See who gets the best deal.
