chanteclaire: What is wrong? You look gloomy.
Mark: I just got fired. I feel like I was betrayed.
chanteclaire: Stop beating yourself up. You knew they were downsizing and you were disheartened when you were not promoted.
Mark: I should not be so blue. I was going to resign anyway.
chanteclaire: Now I see the ambitious man I know!
Mark: You are right. I am not letting them intimidate me. I will find a better job!

I feel that "You knew they were downsizing" should be better.  Maybe it is your phrasing that could be better.Good reading!  I've left a 30 second recording.

I think the "ey" of "they" could be better...

"You knew they were downsizing".

Well done!

Excellent Christiane!! :)

Just a little thing only, I couldn't hear the 'h' of disheartened.

You speak clearly and crisply, each word is so very easy to understand. These days, I feel that the way some young people speak English, gives the impression that they do not appreciate the beauty of the language.It's very sad. Is it the same in France I wonder?...

Thank you very much for your encouragement,Pauline! :-)   I think that the young people sometimes speak french too quickly and swallow their words ...!  They are in a hurry...?!

Yes, it's exactly the same here, we call it 'gabbling' and there is a lot of slang and rap style talk :(

Enjoy your evening :-)
