Which information do people have on their business cards in your country?

In our country, the advertising business is very popular as a matter of fact there is quite a number of registered company in the Security Exchange Commission a government body who regulate all official business registered in the country, so people in line with their businesses must have accurate details of the information dictate in your company portfolio especially in your business card wherein all your main contact details like landline office number, mobile number, office number, and email address as well are mention clearly to communicate properly to prospect business client in our outside the country.

In this lesson I learn to pay attention to both listening and reading text equally and combined information from both of them properly. The sentence "Megumi thinks her real name is difficult to say" should refer to the all people she has met, not only people outside her country that she has met. And, instead of thinking about people outside the country she has met, we should focus on people inside her country she has met that have no difficulties on saying her name. That is why the sentence "Megumi thinks her real name is difficult to say" has the label "false".

I have a business card from my company. I work at an e-commerce company. The information which put in my business card is first name, last name, date of birth, phone number, role, company address.

In my country, most business cards include company name, name, job position, address, phone number,and email address.

ohh I see, can I get your phone number, maybe sometime we can work together as a team, I'm a programmer..

In my country, they have names, positions, names of organization, contact numbers, email & facebook accout and address on their business card.

Yes, it is common to have a business card when the employees or employers are introducing themselves. Receiving the business card, it is mandatory to keep when you have an emergency or necessary task to contact.
