I met this girl at work; she's new and doing data entry so she is just copying stuff from paper onto the computer. Unfortantly she is from the Ukraine and doesn't speak a word of English. I've tried attempting to make her feel welcome around the office; yet it's hard because she doesn't understand me. What would I be able to do to brighten up her day at work and try to make her feel welcomed with that launguage boundary in the way? thank you in advance

Talk to your boss and ask what sorts of things would brighten her day around christmas? Her christmas isn't until next month I believe so you could wait until then or do something now. Give her an extra special card and a few chocolates maybe? Write a message, and then get your boss to translate it under your message for her.
