AIt's very nice of you to invite me.
BI'm very glad you could come, Mr. Liu. Will you take a seat at the head of the table? It's an informal dinner, please don't stand on ceremony... Mr. Liu, would you like to have some chicken?
AThank you. This is my first time to come to a Chinese restaurant. Could you tell me the different features of Chinese food?
BGenerally speaking, Cantonese food is a bit light; Shanghai food is rather oily; and Hunan dishes are very spicy, having a strong and hot taste.
AChinese dishes are exquisitely prepared, delicious, and very palatable. They are very good in colour,flavour,and taste.
BMr. liu, would you care for another helping?
ANo more, thank you. I'm quite full.
BDid you enjoy the meal?
AIt's the most delicious dinner I've had for a long time. It's such a rich dinner.
BI'm so glad you like it.
AThank you very much for your hospitality.

so as to guarantee the training effects. Through the training, we should know that the corporate culture and spirit are the most important things in a company. Our newcomers can really grasp the essence of the corporate culture and spirit. So the new staff can fit into our company and do jobs well.
