I think this useful article may be very helpful for both interviewees and interviewers because it help both sides visualise how interviews should run and prepare them for the best.

Why aren't my comments published here, dear The LearnEnglish Team?

Hello Educator Ashraful,

We check all comments before publishing them, which is why it can take some time before the comments you write appear on the site. We do this at least once per day and usually several times. This is our way of keeping our site free from spam or inappropriate content.

All the best,

Oh I see. That's good for all of us I believe!
Thanks, dear.

How can I download the audio

Hello mohamed elfadaly,

Look for the link under the player window. The text to find is:

Download audio 1.6MB (right click & save)

As the instruction says, right-click the link and choose 'Save as...' from the menu.

there's no link to download this audio. I have tried different brousers. What's the problem?

Hello rozhdestvenskaya

If you use a computer and right-click with the mouse, you should see an option called 'Save Audio As' (or something similar). That should allow you to download the audio.

Please let us know what you see if that doesn't work for you.

All the best

Hello mahshidbadrnia,

Due to changes at the Cambridge Dictionary, our link to it wasn't working any more, so we removed the dictionary from our pages. The good news is that you can access the dictionary directly -- just follow the link above.
