Yes ofcourse, I think in the future I'll do an English interview, this is because Am planning to apply scholarships for my Master's degree and some of the sponsors conduct interviwes for selected applicants before offering them a scholarship. Through the video I'v learned that people should choose the job they have passion with, also job seekers must have a good knowledge about the job they have applied during the interview. They also shud have a clear and short answers.

I agree. By the way, what is scholarship do you want to apply?

Fact is that we are good prepared, so you have all answers in your head. You have to tell the most important, and you mustn't speak too long. I think is good experience to have interview like that. You have to be self-esteem and courageous mostly. You have always tell the truth, for instance what grades you had in school or something similarly. I am confident that these facts work on every interview.

we should talking with short sentence and prevent from making the interviewing tired,and try to give complete information via our short sentence....

Great exercises that I will be introducing my students to. I'd love to see more of these at all levels, and the same kind of thing in a more adult/ business context too. Are there any plans to expand on the current videos available?

Hello okeroker

More videos designed to help learners to improve their speaking skills are indeed in our plans, but I'm afraid it's going to be quite some time before we're able to publish them. In the meantime, you can find a few more videos at each level (though not in a business context) in the LearnEnglish Teens Speaking section. If you're not already familiar with them, you might also want to check out Starting Out, You're Hired, Word on the Street and Britain is GREAT.

All the best

First of all, I really love British accent. And I've spent several months practicing it. I've made some progress. And I hope I can do well in using expressions and communicate with others more fluently in English.
Secondly, I learned quite a lot from this episode, such as the words and expressions used in an interview.
Thanks for the team.

I think I might have to do an interview in English in the future, because I want to find a better paying job and also promote in my caree. First of all you should be confident, calm and honest with your future boss. Secondly you should tell about your caree plans, working experience and goals. Finally, you should be in good mood and polite.

that was an easy exercise! i really loved it.

I don't think I will do an interview on English, but you never know. I learned from this video, that you have to be focused and prepared on an interview and of course, you mustn't think too much on the answer.
