会議で反対意見を述べてみよう

Expressing disagreement at a meeting
日本人は賛成意見より反対意見をぶつけるのが国民性もあり難しいことですが、海外でははっきりと自分の正直な意思表示をしないと、優柔不断な人と言うよりは逆にStrangeな人になってしまうので気を付けましょう。

What do you think of my ideas?

I don't think your idea is effective. We should try to search better way.

自然な表現

I don't think your idea is effective. We should try to search for a better way. 

1. Use "search for" before the object of "search".
2. Use " a" when mentioning one type of "way".
Are you sure? I have done all the research on this and all the data I found was in line with my idea. Please take another look.

Unfortunately, I have say yes. Look the bar graph that you prepared. This show only three past years sales result but we have to consider longer span. I know you used to work at venture company but here is stable company. We have to more precise data to our shareholders.

Unfortunately, I have to say no. Look at the bar graph that you prepared. This shows only sales for three past years but we have to consider a longer span. I know you used to work at a venture company but this is a stable company. We have to give more precise data to our shareholders.

1. Use a "to-infinitive" to express what must be done (had to be done).
2. Use "at" to indicate a point or thing seen.
3. Use the singular verb form with the singular noun "the bar graph".
4. Use " for" before the period of time something happens.
5. Use 'a" when mentioning one period of time.
6. Use "a" when mentioning one type of 'company".
7. Use "this is" to introduce a description of a place.
8. This means to hand over something.
I see. How many past years should I take under consideration when I am doing the research? What do I need to change, in your opinion?

Thank you for understanding. We need 10 past years of data at least. I'm sure you need time to remake it. How long do you need? I think you need only improve about the graph.

1. Do not use "about" after the verb "improve".
Well, if it is only the graph that needs improving, I could do all the research and finish it in a few days.

Sounds good. I'm afraid, I said hard request to you but please understand it due to my expectation. I think you will be a important person in our company.
