Language level

Advanced: C1


I'm getting better at my skills. Tks.

This part is very hard for me to understand I could do with some help

Hello Rashy

This page is C1 Advanced level which is the most difficult level we have on the site. Have you tried the B1 Intermediate and B2 Upper Intermediate listenings? It could be a good idea to try those first and slowly build up to Advanced. If want to keep working at C1 level, have you tried reading the transcript as you listen?

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Best wishes

Thanks for your reply I understand the other sanctions I was on begginers level when I started this course but in this sanctions I don't understand meaning of some words finds very difficult to understand and feel boring as well repeating the process hope to hear from you soon

Hello Rashy,

I would recommend the same thing as Jo: try a section with a lower level. You should be able to find the meanings of most words and phrases on this page in any good online dictionary such as the Cambridge Dictionary.

If there is a specific word or phrase or two that you can't find in the dictionary, we're happy to help, but please try the dictionary first.

All the best,

Well, this is interesting .as on my side, I just have to get to know the company well before the appointment.lucky to me this always serves me a lot .plus logical questions that we all know . But I think getting to know the company in detail prior to the interview appointment day has been a success story as long as I can say in my life .Thank you team

This site has assisted me a lot since I joined it. Thanks for this opportunity given to people to develop themselves.

Hello Babatunde,

Till today I have got the 2 real and serious interviews, first in 2018 and the second one in 2019. Both of them were applying as a teacher to the online schools. Before my first interview I had been sent the instructions on how to get prepared, because actually that was not a usual interview - I must have prepared a lesson and led it. So, I read instructions and conditional, then I prepared the lesson, both interviews were successful.

There are several activities postulants could do to ensure good performance in an interview.
Personally I undertake the followings

Practising by recording myself - Improve intonation, gestures and posture.
Revising company website - get a review m whose will be your potential new employer.
planning your commute - head off to be rushing

And above all, feeling relaxed and knowledging the interviewer is another individual like you.
