Definitely I will have job interview in English language in the future. what important thing that I have learned form this video is being more confident express suitable answers to cover the question precisely.

Yes I might have to do an interview in english, this language is important to practice my profession even if we are not in an english-speaking country.
When I watched this video, it clear that we have to well prepare our interview. For example, Jack gave good and interesting answers, the perspectives to motivate students to do sport.

Hello it's m'y first comment. I am very happy to use your website. Good evening to all

I learnt how to answer questions related to an interview

Hey sir,
I am living in Belgium. Is it forbidden for me to play the video? because I cannot open it.
I need help!

Hello again Zabihullah

The video works for me and there should be no problem in Belgium that I'm aware of. I'd recommend you update your web browser and try a different device. Our videos sometimes do not play on older browsers or devices.

All the best

I have had several interviews when I was living in England. Now I want to return to study.
Where can I found more exercises like this one? I mean, speaking exercises not about interviews.

Hello Momo26

There are a few more videos at this level on LearnEnglish Teens (follow the link) and I'd also recommend you visit our Listening section at this level, where there are 12 pages with audio. They are not focused on developing your speaking skills, but you could use them or any other our audio or video resources (there are lots in General English) to improve your speaking.

To do this, you could choose six to eight sentences from the audio or video that you think would be useful in your speaking, either because they are difficult to pronounce or because they could be useful in different conversations. For example, on this page, 'Well, first of all, we all know it’s important for our health to keep physically fit' or something similar could be useful in many places.

Practise saying that phrase over and over again until it's easy to say. Check your pronunciation with the recording. Then do the same thing with the other phrases or sentences you've chosen. Do this a couple of times a day for several days, until you can remember and say them all confidently.

Write them down in a notebook and then choose another set of sentences from another listening and follow the same procedure. Gradually, you will build up your speaking fluency and vocabulary, and improve your pronunciation and listening.

Let us know how you get on with that!

All the best
