"I've just come back from Tokyo," she said. I knew she had been interviewd for a job in Japan. The company she aimed for had offered round-trip airplane tickets and a single room with fancy dinner. I thought she might be a promissing candidate, but she shook her head and said she was the most hopeless interviewee among five Korean women. She was doing well in the college and her remarks are always intellectual. She is kind, affable, and discreet. What's more, her Japanese is flawless. "We are eager to learn and happy to pay anything to achieve something important." Well, she might be right. Otherwise she couldn't have acquired the ability to speak impeccable Japanese. I must follow her example.
