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?

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.

I'm going to do my itlets spoken test the day after tomorrow and I just began to prepare it yesterday. I plan to study all the speaking skills conversations on this website in two days, though the vedios can't played in my area I think the materials can help me a lot.
What I learned from this conversation are:
have always loved doing something
easy job vs challenge, work with
first of all, secondly, finally
do sport, keep physical fit, mental well-being,self-esteem
important life lessons, team work, discipline,fairness (treat people right)
let me think. It's an interesting question. such setences can give me some time to think.
on one hand, on the other hand (by the way there's a mistake in the task 1 about these phrases, I think)
make a big impression on me, in my blood
enjoy competitive element, want to be the best, not as confident, reward for trying their best. not all about winning

at last, for instance, actually can be used in the end of a setence in oral English.

Hello BING70

Good luck on your test! I also wanted to recommend TakeIELTS, where you can find lots of useful tips to help you prepare.

All the best

Yes, Sure I should do an interview in my nearest future in English.
Because I using British council for my English learning skills
I understood, how can I attend an interview

I am sure that I will do an interview in English in the near future because of IELTS exam. As we know, in part 1 of speaking we need to answer for some questions about ourselves. And I can say this video very helpful for preparing speaking skills.

It is very important to be confident, and have a self esteem. And be truly yourself, and say what you really think from the bottom of your hart. And not trying to be someone else, or pretend that you are someone else.
