Happy new year, everyone!!
I haven’t imagined that I could win blog competition this month. I was surprised that William called me to inform that I won the competition. I felt that I’m very lucky to get into BBC student blog. Thank you for the opportunity to tell my stories to everyone who is learning English through BBC.
I’d like to introduce myself to you. My name is Soyoung Lee. I’m living in Seoul, S.Korea. I’ve been working for a freight forwarder, TNT Freight management korea since I joined it last year. I’m almost working in this filed around 10years.
You can ask me whether I’m satisfied with my job or not. I could say that I like sort of them but sometimes my workload is heavy to set up. Customer service is sometimes hard to follow up our shipper’s request because their focus is not the same as mine. Each shippers called every minutes that they pushed me to give instruction even if I didn’t have it yet. I’m bothering on such a huge calls and request. But I feel it's a good job because I help others who need to introduce shipping arrangement and customs regulations for exporting countries, to export their shipments and arrange it convenience.
Do you have any acknowledge about freight forwarder?
I’m handling for export & import shipment. I’m following up my customers request that they like to ship out their shipment to overseas. I offer the rate and draw up B/Ls and communicate with overseas co-workers. I’m writing e-mails in English everyday. It’s typical job to me. But my English pattern is almost same that I don’t use very many vocabularies because we communicate simple sentences.
I have to stop writing about my job because I’m feeling being presentation.
How do you learn English except learning English on BBC?
By the way, I have to say to you at first, Happy new year everyone!!
What did you do new year’s eve? Is there any special ceremony?
Tell me what you did.
We’re celebrated New year with friends and family. People’s going to city hall to enjoy fire works and The Bell tower at Jongno to listen to new year’s bell. Many famous singers are preparing the gigs for new year. Parents went to The Bell tower with children to show new year’s celebration.
I was at home with my father. We both had a dinner but I made a toast by myself. Did it sad to me? No, I didn’t feel. I wrote to my year’s resolutions while I was listening to the radio. It was nice to me because I haven’t had a time to think about myself properly. Tomorrow, I’m going to tell you about new year’s resolutions.
Tell me what’re you going to do this year? Don’t be worry about breaking it. It’s always difficult to keep on our minds but it’s much better to make for much better future. As long as you remember your plans for new year you'll do your best!!
