An inspiring story for learning English

文章 Michael-liu »

知名手工肥皂LUSH倒閉,老闆葉長錄避不見面,根據業界消息,2年前就出現財務危機了,最後一次公開露面是在半年前,後來就銷聲匿跡,連熟悉他的媒體記者都聯絡不上他,後來在林口燒炭自殺還好獲救,但是那也不是他第一次因為財務問題的壓力而輕生,葉長祿目前積欠給銀行有5、6千萬,業界甚至還指稱他也跟地下錢莊借錢,每個月光是利息錢就高達9百萬,只不過他的財務問題,員工都蒙在鼓裡。

(中間省略)

一箱箱手工皂,本來替葉長祿打下手工皂傳奇事業,他其實學歷不高只有高職畢業,15歲的時候還曾經替父親送貨賣農藥,服完兵役之後進入日商滿心公司。

1990跳槽精品代理商藍鐘當總經理,2000年成立亞洲麗達代理LUSH,一個高職畢業生沒出過國,靠著自修說著一口流利英文,不只當上精品商老總,甚至另立門戶在業界蔚為傳奇,業界感嘆葉長祿衝太快,分店一家家開,結果碰上金融風暴,卻沒有明快處理,一拖再拖才會落得今天這樣的難堪的窘境。

So, studying aboard or not is not really a critical factor in having a good command of English. The point is how much efforts you make.

Another moral of this story is that financial management is consequential for the operation of a company. :P

Let me put it this way...

Fluency is the first base,

Articulate is the second

and Eloquence is the third.

But with effort and little bit of luck, almost anybody can hit it out of the ball park.

I couldn't agree with you more, gentlemen. It's not necessary to go overseas to achieve a good English, but paying effort/attention is indispensable and that's my humble opinion. :ssmile:

You mean, why go overseas, when overseas can come to you?

I think you can say it. Take a good use of technology can also help to upgrade English ability.
Still we will go different places in the world carry different funtions, but when it comes to language learning, it is always the same old saying " You Reap What You Sow"
