“I will give recommendations BLANK dot dot dot” or “BEEP first problem with this is its
price full stop”) until your partner guesses the missing word. They can only guess once
per sentence. If you run out of example sentences without them guessing correctly, read
out just the important part of the sentence, give them other hints, or make up more
examples. You can use the same section more than once if you haven’t used all the
examples there yet.

Can I check that back?/ Can I read that back?
Anyway, we have to leave this room at six, so shall we get started?
