Not bad!

Thank you Team. The lesson was great!

Well guys, about the third question from Task 1 I would like to comment the following:
Phil asks explicitly for a “five years' relevant experience, in an international company”, not necessarily an international experience.
I´ve worked for a multinational for a while and yet, I haven´t been expatriated. Therefore, I´ve worked for an international company but I did not have an international experience!
Could answer B be the right one? “a higher degree and five years ‘experience?”
Many thanks

Hi hermann.mathow,

You have clearly understood the conversation, so I would say that yes, your answer is correct. 'five years' international experience' isn't the best wording -- I'll change it to 'five years' experience in an international company' to clarify what is meant here.

Thanks very much for taking the time to ask about this.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
