Lecture

Photo Emily Schmidt - Anglais en ligne et exercise d'anglais des affaires gratuit

This is Emily Schmidt. She is 28. Emily majored in 'Political Science' and minored in 'French' at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. After obtaining her bachelors degree from Yale she went on to do her graduate studies in 'International Relations' at Columbia University in New York City. It was in New York City when she got her first taste of international diversity. Major metropolises are often habitats for all nationalities. In New York City, Emily was overwhelmed by the cultural differences that varied from street to street! There were Chinese districts, Italian districts, Arab districts, Russian districts...the diversity seemed endless! Whereas some people may shy away from such diversity, Emily thought the diversity was fascinating! She was especially intrigued by the ways people of one nationality communicate with people of another nationality. Emily realized that there are many communication obstacles, both cultural and linguistic, that need attentive care in order for our diverse societies to exist harmoniously.

After obtaining her masters degree at Columbia, Emily made her mind up! Her goal would be: improving communications and knowledge between nations and their citizens. Clearly, this is too enormous a project for one person to handle, but Emily decided to do her piece. Because Emily is fluent in French, educated in International Relations and interested in politics, she decided to take a job at the American Embassy in Paris, France. She is working there now. Emily hopes that she can help coordinate communications between the USA and France. Her goal is not to integrate the American lifestyle in France, but to better communicate the French sentiment in the USA. Her job is not only to serve as an interface between nations. In fact, she is quite influential. Emily talks with and listens to the French natives about foreign policy. She reads up on and relays current events daily. And she communicates with government representatives via email and telecommunications to give advice on political decision-making. Emily finds this very rewarding.
