Who is your boss? What is he like?

He sounds like a really intelligent person. Could you please tell me how long you have known and worked with him?

I've worked with him for only about 2 months. Before assigned to the current project, I had a career interview with him. I heard the project members needed to use English every day. However, I am not good at English especially speaking and said to him I felt concerned about working well. Then he said, "Don't worry. If you don't understand what the other people say, it is okey to ask them to repeat. Everyone will help you, of course I do."

The most impressive word is we are not subcontracted but should be in advisory position. I think what his word means and what I should do to be a reliable consultant. One of the things I've decided to do is learning English so that I am able to communicate smoothly with foreign people.
