Welcome back! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to spend a few minutes with us at WordMaster@Work! Are you ready to practice your skills in Business English? Let's talk about your job...
- Instead of saying, "I work in an office" or, "I'm an office worker," it's often helpful and useful to be more precise. For example, if you work in the sales department of a company, you can say, I work in sales or, I'm in sales. If you're in the marketing department, you can say, I work in marketing, etc. You can also refer to your company name or, at least, the type of company or organization you work for.
- 仕事について聞かれたとき、"I work in an office." や "I'm an office worker." という答えでは漠然とし過ぎています。もう少し詳しく、例えば営業部にいるなら、I work in sales. または I'm in sales.、マーケティングなら、I work in marketing. などと言えばいいでしょう。会社名や、少なくともどんな種類の会社や組織に属しているかぐらいは言いましょう。
