I learned the importance to have an interesting conversation. When different points are treated and them are connected in a main issue. The candidate was authentic and shared his points of view while listen and answer the questions. He demonstrated interest and capacity for identify the most relevant aspects in sports teaching.

Hi. I'm preaty sure the this day will come. An interview is a complicated task for native speakers too. Because there is always something behind, a reason for an interview. It makes people nervous. I think those guys who conduct interviews crack lots of jokes about it.
Thanks for a very cool format of a lesson. This is really impresive but we need more desperately.

yes I4D like to do an interview in English in the future, because speeking english is my pleaser on first and I wish to speek flountly this language without mistakes .

Yes, I will do this in the future, becouse if I learn so hard like right now I will be able to do everything in english not included break my shy to make mistakes when I will talking with other people. In this video and other like this I learn how to pronouncing some words and I can feel near-real conversation.

Unfortunately, an interview is not my cup of tea not just in English. I don`t like it but I understand it is very important to be able to know how to answer the questions. From this video, I learned one thing I need to be confident when I am in an interview.

Yes, of course. Those who want to improve their English, their oral comprehension, etc.... We should do an interview like this. Moreover, in this video, Jack’s answers are really interesting and teach us how to give a good answer and speak well during an interview. This is the best way to improve our English. Then I learned a few words like “blood”, “fit”, “fairness” and “self-esteem”. I hope that for this new year, there will be a little more videos at this level because there are not enough videos for those who want to improve their way of speaking.
By the way, thanks for making this video.

I´ve learned new words and i love this video it´s so helpful .Thank you for wonderful sharing!

I've learned from that video. Especially I had catch about, how to do make a good answers in the interview. I also have got some new vocabularies in their conversation. And I try to do pay attention for Jack's body language in his interview.
