Welcome back!

We'll be spending this week touring the industrial plants of manufacturing's biggest players. It takes bold leadership and relentless determination to grow a business to the point where it assumes a global presence. But it all starts with one of these, doesn't it?

Today's Lesson


  • A product is one of the goods or services that a business makes or provides.

    To produce something is to make it or grow it (for example, on a farm).

    Production is the act of producing something, or the amount of something produced by a company, country, etc.
  • product とは、企業が製造、提供する商品やサービス、つまり、製品のことです。

    produce とは、何かを作る、または(農場などで)育てる、つまり、製造する、生産する、という意味です。

    production は、何かを製造・生産すること、または企業や国などが製造・生産するものの総量のことです。
