Speaking

The long holiday for me is not special, because I am afraid of to go some place, because they will always crowded, I contacted with my classmates who have a good relationship for a long time. Except this activity with my classmate, I just went to office to do something for my job. For the last two days of the National Holiday, I need to go to the factory to talk about some details for my order and ask teacher to tell me how to measure the size of the some components. I need to finish that before 8 October.

I have two types of gatherings in my life, one is classmate gathering, one is buddy military gathering, we gather together rarely. I have a plan on 2020, I will go to an exhibition on metal production in Europe. But I not check about which country will have some specific exhibition, I want to visit it to know how to organize and how to connect with foreign customer in exhibition. If I keep this level about speaking, I can imagine the people say “what did you say?”

Revised

The long holiday for me was not special, because I am afraid of to go to some crowed places, because they will always crowded, I contacted with my classmates to have a gathering. Other than this gathering with my classmate, I just went to the office to do something for my job. For the last two days of the National Holiday, I needed to go to the factory to talk about some details for my order and ask the teacher to tell me how to measure the size of the some components. I need to finish that before the 8th of October.

I have two types of social gatherings in my life, one is classmate gathering, one is military buddy gathering, we gather together rarely. I have a plan in 2020, I will go to an exhibition about/regarding metal production in Europe. But I haven’t checked the country that will host some specific exhibitions, I want to visit it to know how to organize and how to connect with foreign customer in exhibition. If my speaking skills cannot improve, I can imagine people asking “what did you say?”
