Hello Kirk,
Thank you very much for your sugestion!
All the best to you too.

Yes, I think. In particular because I am interesting in working in an international environment. Yes, I learnt the quality needed to be a good PE teacher.

This is the first lesson from the website. I think it is a good example for interviews.

Hi! Is my first lesson from the website too. Have you had a interview like this before?

Well, I have done some previous interviews in English, so I'll definitely have some more in the near future. This conversation was really interesting to watch, I found some of the phrases pretty useful, and I'll definitely put them in practice with no doubt.

Good lessons.
And very helpful.

yes this is clear to me i might have to do an interview in English as soon .
i think this video is useful. i like remember some sentences such as:
"let me think it's difficult to choose one thing in particular"

Actually, I don't think I might have to do an interview in English soon, because neither I am looking for a job nor I need it. Maybe it might be useful to me when answering some questions in the speaking section of my English test. However, I have learnt from the video how to structure my talking in order to present strong ideas in a simple way.
