Hi,
I found following sentences at the homepage of a company.

mission : help our customers become successful companies. Attract successful companies to become our customers.
 Policy : we pursue “zero defects” anddo the right thing right for the first time” .
I think that the “do the right thing right for the first time” is not proper.
Should it be “do the right thing right first time.” or “do the right thing right from the first time.” or “do the right thing right from the begining.” ?

Would you give me your comment?

I tend to agree with you. The way they write it sounds to me like they've never done it right before and will try to do it for the first time.
Hi,
Here's another comment.

mission : help our customers become successful companies. Attract successful companies to become our customers.
This idea seems a bit 'circular'.

eg I become your customer. You help me become successful. You attract me to be your customer again. You help me be successful, although I'm already successful. etc. etc. etc.

Best wishes, Clive

Hehehe... is this what they call virtuous circle?
Hi,
Maybe.

Let me comment on how to 'write' the sound of laughter.

You, and many people on the forum, write Hehehe...

To me, as a native speaker, this seems like sniggering.

Normal, friendly laughter is usually written as Hahaha. . .

Best wishes, Clive
My version is often Hee, hee, hee!

How does that strike you?

Emotion: smile

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Well, I've always associated hehehe (pronounced with a schwa Emotion: smile ) with a small laughter while hahaha a big one. Jim's version sounds more like a giggle to me, but then again I'm not a native speaker of laughter... sorry, English Emotion: smile
Hi,
Hee, hee, hee strikes me as furtive laughter.

It was hehehe that I thought looked like a snigger.

I recommend a wholesome, healthy, clean-cut Ha, ha, ha.

Let's leave Ho, ho, ho for Santa Claus.

I'm amazed there's such an elaborate taxonomy of laugh words.
I've always taken all of them as more or less interchangeable.

Emotion: big smile<<< That represents "ha, ha, ha", I suppose?
