New Foreign Girl

There’s a new foreign girl who started a week or two ago. Unlike our last foreign couple (Svetlana and her boyfriend) she isn’t shy. She puts herself about and will talk to anyone. I was messing with one of the printers yesterday, when she came up behind me (bearing in mind that she hadn’t spoken to me before now), and said “Hello” quite loudly, so I couldn’t ignore it. I don’t know where she is from, I should have asked really, but I bet that’s all she gets from everyone else. She then went on to ask me all about the printers and what I did, without much chance for me to get a word in edgeways. I’m not knocking her attitude, she obviously wants to be friendly and speak as much English as she can. It’s just a bit odd after Svetlana being so reserved.

That's good that she has the confidence to talk to strangers and practice her English.

How does she get on working in the office, where she may not understand everything?

She has a remarkably good understanding of English and sems to get on fine with most things.
