Stories of answering calls from abroad

Stories of answering calls from abroad We are basically a small business doing business only in Japan so we have no direct overseas involvement whatsoever. I don't speak any foreign languages and my daughter traveled to the U.S. for the summer vacation last year. I'm not sure if you've ever heard of a company that doesn't have a website but I'm sure you've heard of a company that doesn't have a website but I'm sure you've heard of a company that doesn't have a website. I've had many occasions when I've answered the phone from overseas and the other day I got a wrong number from France. There is no such thing. Therefore none of our employees have language skills. I myself am not a very good English speaker and I was very nervous when I received a phone call in English and had to answer it. At first I had no idea what they were saying but when I asked them to speak slowly I could understand a few words. It seemed that an employee of a client company was in trouble in Singapore and he had contacted me from a business card that I happened to have in my bag. I was only able to get a very general hearing but I was able to find out the name of the company we were dealing with so I was able to handle the situation. As we will continue to develop our business in Japan it is unlikely that we will receive such a call in the future. Still I realize that the time has come when it is better to have language skills. I once received a call from an overseas branch office at a previous jobI once received a call from an overseas branch office at a previous job. I could understand what they were saying but I couldn't get a reply. They asked me to speak in English but I didn't know what kind of reply to give. So to get through the situation I asked someone who was good at English to take over the phone. He was not an employee but a part-timer but he answered in a neat manner which really helped me. I had never received a call from an overseas branch office before so I was surprised. It is often said that Japanese people understand what is being said but the words don't come out and I thought that was exactly the case. It is also said that there is a lack of communication. I am glad that I was able to make it through because there was someone there who could speak English but I would have been a little scared if there had not been someone there who was good at English.
