Quy ước giao tiếp – Trả lời điện thoại

 

Chào các bạn,

Hôm nay các bạn xem video clip này về cung cách trả lời điện thoại nhé–điện thoại cá nhân, cũng như điện thoại của công ty trong khi làm việc. Các quy ước trong này rât thông dụng. Làm kém hơn quy ước là thiếu chuẩn. Nhiều công ty có cách trả lời điện thoại mọi nhân viên phải làm, cao hơn chuẩn trong video này. Vi dụ: “Good morning. Thank you for calling Queen Bee Fashion. It is a wonderful day in Hanoi. This is Thúy Vân. May I help you?”

Bài này có lời viết đi theo lời nói tiếng Anh, nên rất dễ để theo dõi. Nếu cần thêm thời gian để đọc hay nghe lại, chỉ cần ngưng để đọc, hay để chuột lên lằn đỏ đậm, rồi kéo chấm trắng ngược lại một chút để nghe lại đoạn vừa nghe.

Mến

It's not on the same scale of China's Great Wall but is still significant for Vietnam's past and future.

It’s not on the same scale of China’s Great Wall but is still significant for Vietnam’s past and future.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Team uncovers what it calls the “longest monument in Southeast Asia”
  • The Long Wall stretches for 127km and was used to regulate trade and travel
  • It could help redefine tourism in Vietnam
  • It’s nicknamed Vietnam’s Great Wall, by locals although it is not on the same scale as China’s

Editor’s note: Adam Bray has written extensively on Vietnam and is the first journalist to have visited the Long Wall.

Quang Ngai, Vietnam (CNN) — Nestled in the mountain foothills of a remote province in central Vietnam, one of the country’s most important archaeological discoveries in a century has recently come to light.

After five years of exploration and excavation, a team of archaeologists has uncovered a 127-kilometer (79-mile) wall — which locals have called “Vietnam’s Great Wall.”

Professor Phan Huy Lê, president of the Vietnam Association of Historians, said: “This is the longest monument in Southeast Asia.”

Sarcastic observers joked that the scene — the monotonous non-event held every five years that has become Vietnam’s 11th National Party Congress — summed up the obsolescent state of the communist party itself. For a week starting last Wednesday, 1400 delegates gathered in the capital of Hanoi to set the party’s strategy and voted out some older members of its gray-haired leadership. The outcome? Much of the same, but with a few younger faces — an increasingly rare species in a country where many business-oriented youth no longer join need to join the party. A third of the party’s 15-man politburo, the most powerful committee in the country, stepped down, some citing their ages and health concerns.

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam (Reuters), Jan 13 – Nguyen Duc Tai was on a mission one sweltering January morning in Vietnam’s commercial capital, Ho Chi Minh City.

Flush with cash from his annual bonus, he wanted to buy his wife a new mobile phone, a gift for the coming Tet lunar new year holidays. In a country where the average annual income is about $1,100, a good phone is a big investment. Tai wanted to make the right choice with his 5 million dong ($250).
