As I mentioned, sometimes I get a task by the phone when my English boss is outside. And he is making it difficult for me to express the task with a lot of details. Therefore I wonder which expressions or sentences to ask him to describe the task briefly and politely. Here are my expressions:
- In short, what would like me to do?
- Sorry, I am afraid that I didn't get it, could you explain it in fewer words.
- Sorry, I don't follow you, could you explain it in another way?
My boss style is very polite, so I need to be careful when communicating. Please help me out with the expressions you think will best fit.
