Currently, Vietnam's logistics businesses are quite professional and efficient, but in fact only meet 25% of the market demand and only stop at the level of providing individual services, some of which segment of this important service chain.

This is also a solid foundation for product development and market share is growing. Investment in research and development activities will create a qualitative transition in the operation of the enterprise. Because of the early recognition of the role and importance of R & D in the operation of the company, the Company's leaders have had a strong investment
strategy for this division to bring R & D into the forefront for the breakthrough development of the business. In addition to the strong investment in facilities, the operating model has been reformed accordingly. The company has created the best incentives and conditions, is assigned many important functions and tasks to be able to assume the role as the key to the successful development of the company. With regard to human resources, in order to have enough qualified staff to meet the needs of a specialized research unit, in addition to planning training to improve the level of available staff, the recruitment and promotion policies are applied regularly by the company to attract high quality human resources from the outside to work.

PART II. INTRODUCTION ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP PROGESS AT THE COMPANY 2.1 Tasks to be performed during the internship Over the past month, being honored to work with our R & D staff is one of the things I feel most happy about. With the knowledge in the field and the course of import and export quite stable, but not much exposure to the specific work in a business so early I found quite difficult. However, the leadership of Research and Development Department has been very sympathetic and created good conditions for me to fulfill the tasks assigned. - Closing export orders to foreign partners: Due to the advantages of knowledge of Business English and knowledge of import and export, I was assigned by the management to contact with foreign partners and customers: garment enterprises such as Singpore New Trend, Old Thery, Burberry, North Land, Zara, ... After training the basic knowledge of culture in the business and the big partners, - Contact suppliers:
Raw material is one of the important factors to create a product not only good quality but very reasonable price. As the source of raw materials in Vietnam is less and higher, the company has to look for reputable suppliers from countries such as China and India to produce products. My task in the first month was to inform the suppliers of the material as well as the quantity and time of the requirements. - Participate in product research and development project in summer of 2018: In addition to contacting the customer, I was also involved in supporting the new product development project of the 2018 orientation business with the task of studying the statistics that the business has studied, collected to meet the tastes of customers to bring products closer to consumers. For me, a fourth-year student who has not had a lot of work experience has been entrusted by the trust and trust that the management showed such a great job. The best chance is not only to learn new things from my co-workers, but also to try and develop myself in a positive way. 2.2 Difficulties and lessons learned 2.2.1 Difficulties in the work process. - Arrange time: Due to not having much exposure to work in the office with 3 jobs are proposed each other. In particular, each country has different time zones, leading to a number of issues related to job placement. For example, if Vietnam's office hours are from 8am to 11h30pm, however, when you want to contact some US customers, they end up working late. Similarly, some countries that have a lunch break culture different from Vietnam so we should avoid bothering them during lunch break is also very noticeable when conducting business with them. Similar to the business culture, holidays in some foreign companies are different: for example, when they want to lend their applications to customers in India on Friday, it is their holiday. We also do not contact as well as negotiate. After some time not arrange reasonable time frame to lock the application for the customer has led to some complaints from the customers as well as the management. I also drew lessons for myself and was advised by some colleagues in
the room to allocate reasonable time with the Excel table to work and monitor my progress and see the effect clearly. - Skills of major: We can see that besides the great source of knowledge in the university, the knowledge of the subject is far greater than that, and I realize that his professional knowledge of product development is not good. Therefore, we have not come up with many good ideas and creativity as some colleagues. Especially in a field like Garment, I need to be really sharp and creative. Each business has its own strengths and weaknesses. During the internship at the R & D lab, you need to understand some of the types of data and how to handle them as efficiently as possible. - Problem solving: With the time to familiarize with the business is not much, not familiar with the work situation is very diverse, complex. Sometimes, with situations that the partner or supplier has given me, I couldn’t deal directly with them at that moment, but must explain that i will report and ask the management again to respond them as soon as possible. While this may not be a mistake in the job, however, the customer's confidence in the performance of the staff in the department will be reduced. With the encouragement and help of dedicated colleagues in the room so i also made positive progress and more new lessons. - Language in communication: Although this is not the most difficult part of the internship process, it is one of the most important things to note in the course. Most of the staff in the room are older than me, their knowledge and personality will be different and i also need to be very careful when dealing with colleagues. Avoid discussing weaknesses about your hometown, age, appearance, or even their lack of knowledge without sharing the sincerity. Businesses have the culture of the business, but in which each individual also has their own qualities we should respect them in the best possible way. In my opinion, anyone entering any organization has certain difficulties and needs to be changed to improve. Therefore, I hope that in the future with the support
of my colleagues I can better fulfill the tasks assigned to the Research and Development Department at Pan Pacific during the internship. PART 3: PRACTICALUSE OF ENGLISH AT THE TRAINEESHIP. 3.1 The reality of using English in VietPan Pacific Pan Pacific is a business company as well as having many international cooperation relationships with many countries in the world. The company uses English, Vietnamese and Chinese to conduct business. However, English is considered the most used language, the most important. In terms of the overall size of the business with all the parts, English is used quite commonly in some departments with specialized terms with basic communication requirements. However, not really good and often so it does not create a completely working environment in real English. - Speaking and listening skills: Because most of the employees are Vietnamese, there are only 3 Chinese employees so the staffs in the company communicate with each other in Vietnamese. Due to the fact that the work conditions do not require full communication in English, the ability of the majority of employees to speak English is very low or they are unable to communicate in English. In addition, some departments working with foreign partners such as R & D department, sales department have high requirements for the employees working here with international standard framework such as: Toeic 550 or higher or IELTS 6.0. From the dynamic working environment, integration and listening requirements of the staff of these departments must be especially high when negotiating with customers, the accuracy of the listening skills is higher. - Reading - Writing skills: Similar to Listening and Speaking skills, literacy skills are used frequently in foreign partner - related departments for administrative - office work. There are a lot of employees in the R & D department that need to use English as: contact with customers, suppliers, negotiation, order entry, contract writing and editing, information notification ... In the above mentioned departments, their reading and writing skills are relatively good and can be accomplished effectively.
With the rapid change of information technology, with the goal of extending the product network of enterprises to many countries around the world, the popularization of English for employees or management is what the company has set during the last 5 years. Officers of departments are assigned to take courses in English for specific professions. In addition, recruiting staff also set clear criteria specific to the English level of applicants. 3.2 Solutions for the shortcomings of using English in VietPan Pacific. The requirement of using English is imperative, while the staff of the company does not really have enough knowledge. The board of directors of the company has introduced many solutions to improve the quality of English with some specific forms such as: - Recruitment with high English requirements: In order to avoid affecting the quality of work as well as training time, this can be a very good way to search, filter the quality of the staff of the company. - Training: Every year, management helps employees in the business to learn English to encourage employees to improve their professional skills and English language skills. In this way, the company gets the support of the staff but will spend a lot of money and time. - Self-study: Due to frequent English-language work (contact with customers via mail and phone calls, paperwork, etc.), staff can improve their English through this work. In this way, the ability to progress is long and time-consuming.
PART 4: PROPOSED RESEARCH ISSUES After a one-week and three-week training course at research and development department, I noted a number of language-related issues at this company, particularly language barriers. It affects the progress of work as well as the quality of work for each individual. I want to spend my next three months working here to study: "Barriers to using English in VietPan Pacific" as well as drawing lessons in language and development and the ability to use your language in the future.
