    In this week's Premier Skills English Podcast, we go back to Rich's football-themed cafe. He's decided that he needs to do some advertising and wants to hire an airship to fly above his cafe. The problem is that this is very expensive and he will have to negotiate a good price. The language focus is on adjectives to describe different negotiating styles and phrases connected to three important negotiating skills. In this week's task, we want you to decide who is the best negotiator: Jack, Rowan or Rich? Don't forget to listen to the end of the podcast because we have a new football phrase for you to guess.
