Hello Kennedy, I certainly  believe that working in a office requires to be a neat person and very organized, because is not easy to open your mind or concentrate in a dirty place. 

Beside, it does not say  anything  good about you, if you are not an organized worker.

Regards.

Hello Kennedy! Welcome to Lingora. Great to hear you like the idea of Lingora. Native English speakers will always be willing to help you make progress with your speaking and writing skills in English, so make sure you keep posting texts and audios of yourself practicing!  

I agree with both you and Kennedy - it is very important to be organised and tidy when working in an office. If you are messy and disorganised (as I sometimes am haha) you will end up losing things and annoy your boss.What kind of company do you work at? Do you have to work long hours?

The recording cut out so it was difficult to hear what you'd said at one point. Your speed and accent are quite good. As a native speaker, I might say it like this: I like my job but sometimes it's difficult as my boss likes everything to be extremely organized. Personally, I like to work in the back office with my customers. And you?

One cultural note, we usually think of the back office as being the place without customers, only employees.

Hi!

Thanks for this!

Just be careful with your tenses; when you say 'How was it going?' in your title, do you mean 'How is it going?' If you're talking in the present tense, 'is' is the correct term.

In terms of my own role, I work in a fast-paced office and I have to prioritise my workload on a daily basis in order to stay on top of it.

Thanks,

Becky :)

Hi Kennedy!  I'm Ros and I work as a one-to-one English teacher.  I love my job because, like you, I love working with people.  Patricia is right - a back office is usually an office that the customer doesn't see.  You could just say "the office" but you need to put in the definite article ("the

Say:  "I already have job" because you are describing a job in general and saying that you have one.  When you say "We'll", the comma between the "e" and the "ll" is a contraction of "We will".  I think you meant to say "Well" (without the comma!).

When you say "is difficult" try saying "it's difficult".  This is a contraction of "it is".  You need to use the subject pronoun "it" here.

Finally, I've added a recording of the word "neat".  We pronounce it as "neet" (so ignore the "a" sound!).

It's really good to hear from you.  I'm so happy you like e-lingora and that you have found a place where you can practise your English skills!
