Hello Yshc,

I'm afraid we had a few technical problems with the exercises but everything should be working correctly now.

It was ok. I usually listen twice to be sure I understand the whole video.

I like the videos, the conversations were easy to follow. It is also good to show 2 different types of interviewees. This will help the young job seekers on how they present themselves in an interview.
Many thanks to the whole team.

I once worked for a major bank in Japan, and I remember the day I had a job interview at the bank. I think the procedure of the interview was more casual and simple than this video, and it was already decided that I would be hired but gave me an interview just for formality. It's a rather sad memory of mine since I had to resign the bank because of my mental problem, and after that I learned that I'm not a person to belong to an organization but to do something by myself, which led me to become a translator of English, my present job..

The video content it is really good. I guess the 2 candidates are good ones, but the man looks more confident even answering Mrs. Marcia at the phone. Looking forward to next episode!

What does "a week tomorrow" mean? Can we just simply state that "tomorrow" alone?


Hello Kyaw Kyaw Thet,

'a week tomorrow' means 'a week from tomorrow', in other words, eight days from today. If today is Sunday the 14th, it means Monday the 22nd.

All the best,

In this video, Sarah is more excited than David but it will be the first time she makes a presentation and she is not sure to pass.

The job interview here seems to me very complicated and well-designed. I used be an interviewer at a company for some candidates for joining us, but the interview was more simple, I mean just a couple of general questions only.

That's very cool locking forward next episode
