Well, there's not much choice under the current circumstances. That's true but what do you prefer? Do you like working at home or working in the office? Hmmm, that's a difficult question to answer. I mean, I like being in the office. I get to see everyone, it's very sociable and we get to work together, Feifei! Yes but, surely you enjoy working at home too - it's quiet and you don't get those annoying interruptions. Errr, that's true - and I can eat as many biscuits as I like... without people complaining! Well, I think 'blended working' is the way forward for you. Ooo, 'blended working' - what's that? 'Blended working' is a new expression that describes a mix of working at home and working in the office. It's another way of describing flexible working. Let's hear some examples... New technology has helped me with blended working. I can now do many of my tasks at home. Our company is introducing blended working - it will help with my work-life balance and provide more desk space in the office. I've asked my boss for a more blended approach to working - let's hope he agrees! This is The English We Speak from BBC Learning English and we're learning about the phrase 'blended working', which describes a mix of working from home and your place of work. So how do you like the idea of this, Rob? It sounds great. So how many days can I work at home? Well, 'blended working' means being flexible so it benefits you and the business. It's happening more and more but it doesn't work if you're not self-motivated. Self-motivated? I certainly am and working at home is great - I could work in my pyjamas! Hmmm, just make sure you don't wear them to the office. I won't. Bye. Bye, Rob.
