1. Ein Mann und eine Frau unterhalten sich über die Anordnung des Konferenzzimmers.

2. Wie werden sie die Tische arrangieren?

3. Lass uns die Tische für die morgige Besprechung arrangieren.

4. Alles klar. Sollen wir alle Tische in die Mitte des Raumes stellen, damit sich alle
gegenübersitzen können?

5. Nein. Es wird als erstes eine Gruppensitzung geben, also lass uns die Tische in vier
Bereiche unterteilen. In einer Gruppe werden vier Personen sitzen.

6. Okay. Ich werde außerdem Notizblöcke und Stifte auf jeden Platz legen.

7. Vielen Dank. Es wird auch eine kleine video-unterstütze Erklärung geben, also
brauchen wir auch einen Projektor hier.

8. Gut. Ein Whiteboard werden wir auch benutzen, oder?

9. Nun... wie wäre es, wenn wir das Whiteboard auf die gegenüberliegende Seite des
Bildschirms stellen? Lass es uns in den hinteren Teil des Raumes stellen.

10. Ich verstehe.

2. How are they going to arrange the tables?

3. Let's arrange the tables for tomorrow's meeting.

4. Alright. Should we put all the tables in the center of the room so that everyone sits around
and faces each other?

5. No. There's going to be a group session first, so let's separate the tables into four
sections. Four people will be seated in each group.

6. Okay. And I will put some memo pads and pens on each table.

7. Thank you. And we will have a short explanation using a projector before starting the
session, so we need a projector here.

8. All right. Also we are going to use a whiteboard, aren't we? Is it fine if I put the white
board next to the screen?

9. Well... how about putting the whiteboard on the opposite side of the screen? Let's put it at
the back of the room.

10. I see.

11. And remember to bring all the stuff back after the meeting. Put two tables together and set
them in four rows.
