「出張」に関する問題を解いてみましょう。

問題 1

To: Beth Cordero
From: Dylan Winters
Date: September 10
Subject: London trip

Could you please reserve a fl ight for my trip to London next month and arrange for accommodations in the vicinity of Southland Bank? I plan to be there from October 7 to 10. Ideally, the hotel would have a business center, but I would settle for wireless Internet access. It would be great if you could fi nd a hotel with a gym.

Also, could you please make arrangements for a guided bus tour of the city on the 9th? I would prefer the tour to be over by around 3 p.m. as I’m having dinner with clients in the evening. Let me know what kinds of tours are available.

Contact me if you need more information. As always, thank you for help.

Dylan

man-921004_640

日本語の「キレる」は《堪忍袋の緒が切れる》という慣用表現に由来します。意味としては「我慢の限度を超えるほど怒りがわいた状態」のようにいえるでしょう。

「研修会」に関する問題を解いてみましょう。

問題 4

To: All employees
From: Chuck Nishida
CC: Lyle Grodin
Date: June 8
Subject: Summer Digital Media Workshop

A digital media workshop will be held during the week of July 1. Several experts in the field will be invited to instruct us on how to use digital media for better work efficiency and product promotion. Of particular interest this year is the fact that a large chunk of time will be allotted to copyright and intellectual property issues. Though probably unintended, copyright infringement has become rampant and is something that must be avoided at all costs.

Although the deadline is June 25, space is limited, so signing up early is recommended. I will be away during the last half of June, so be sure to cc your attendance requests to Lyle Grodin.

From: Jan Ford
Date: May 6
Subject: Welcome party

Hi Rick,

I’m writing to remind you that as the designated organizers, we need to start putting the welcome party together for the new employees who’ll be joining our team next month. Ideally, the party would take place the week they start, which should be June 6. Let me confirm this first with Amanda. She’ll be back at work on Monday. As for the venue, we need to think about having the party catered if we’re going to use the cafeteria like we did last year. Don’t you think choosing an off-site location would be easier? Have them include food and drinks for a set price per person? In any case, let’s get together this week to see what we can come up with.
