Tram and Tan are my colleagues. We are laboratory technicians in the pharmaceutical company. We have known each other and have been close for 4 years. Tram is plump and curly hair. Tan is fit and short hair. Both of them are full of energy girls, helpful, and friendly so I like them very much.

Dear team.
From the audio above :
Jani: Don't worry about it. For now it's just good to put some faces to names.
The question is :
What does it mean 'put some faces to names' ???
Thank you very much team

Hello fahri,

Jani had heard the names of these people, but never met them. Now that she's meeting them, she can match the names to their faces ('put their faces to names'). In other words, from now on, she can imagine them with their real faces when she thinks of them.

All the best,

Kirk

Thank you very much for your answer. That's very clear. Thanks again

I describe Amanova A. as a head of the department of languages. She is usually well dresses and has blond hair. Kinjemuratova Z is often dressed formally and is responsible for study work. Baymuratova S is a tall and serious girl with long hair. She is in charge of spiritual lightening work at the department.

Oh, it's a tough task. I have lots of colleagues and they all very different. Some of them came to our company just after their graduation. They are young, inexperienced but persisted. Most of them don't have families so after work they are free like a bird. Maybe they spend their free time in cafes or pubs. I would do that in their place ))
Some of my colleagues are much older than me. A few of them even have grandkids. They are good specialists with great experience but sometimes they are slow-starters. It's hard to motivate them to learn something new. They think they already know everything ))

I describe for both, how they are and what they do.

My colleagues are very helpful and kind to everyone. And I am happy to be and work near them.
