It's great to talk with you all,and I like English so I write in English to share my experience in communicating with foreigners.
After working as an international salesman for +10 years,I beleive English speaking ability is very important for us,this is a priority,so we should study and practice our ability frequently.Now for young people,everyone has a smartphone,so we can use this facility to learn English everyday.
Usually I use Apps of ChinaDaily to read engislih news,moreover CGTN is a fabulous platform to listen english news.
Like the old sayings told,practice makes perfect,after we stick to studying english for a long time,our ability will improve a lot.
On communicating with foreign customer,Linkedin is a good platform for us to search all our customer,although Facebook,Twitter and Youtube are blocked in China.
After we know customer on Linkedin,we can use Skype to call them and talk business with them.
Maybe somebody will ask how to get contact on Linkedin,we can use google to search foreign rival's website and send them our promotional mails,usually there is be 4-5 replies in 100 mails.This is the way I did business with my customers.
Although my customers are our competitors,but we can offer them better products,then they would like to do business with us.
Sisters and brothers,hopt to communicate with you all in Chinese or English on international business.
FOBSHANGHAI is a marvelous platform for all Chinese international salesman to communicate,I also grew up on this platform.
So I would like to help the freshman and hope we can improve ourselves together
