Philip Hart and Marcia Boardman discuss which candidate to appoint.


Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the transcript at any time.

Task 1

Comprehension task

Put the ideas into the order they were expressed in the video.


Task 2

Business notes

In the seventh video in the series Marcia and Philip discuss and compare the two interviewees before making the decision about who to give the job to. In doing this they use a number of adjectives to describe the characters of Daniel and Sarah, such as convincing and arrogant. Adjectives can often have a positive or negative connotation – here are a few more adjectives that could be used to describe someone in an interview situation:

Positive: Convincing; Self-assured; Confident; Well-prepared; Sincere; Ambitious

Negative: Unconvincing; Arrogant; Overconfident; Unprepared; Insincere; Over-ambitious




I abolutelly agree with the choice

Thank you very much it's very important, with this video we learn english and how to do best interview.

These videos have been of great importance to improve my learning English and complete tasks also help in understanding and vocabulary

Hi, i am a new member.
I am trying to improve my level in English both writing and speaking. thank you for this helpful site.

That videos are very helpful for me, I'm looking for a job in the moment and I'm learning lots of things that I need to do in an interview.

Why I can not play the video?

Hi suheri,

I'm sorry that you're not able to see the video. Could you tell us a bit more about what happens? For example, do you see an error message of some kind? If so, what does it say? Also, what kind of device (computer, mobile phone or tablet) are you using, and what operating system and browser?

With that information, we should be able to solve this problem.

Best wishes,

The LearnEnglish Team

I like those videos on British Council. They are helpful for improving my Listening and office conversation. I'm looking forward to new episodes coming soon.

This is just perfect for me, i am not going to ESL courses anymore so, I believe i've gotten the right page with videos and exercises just in time. Thanks a lot.

I could understand the words in the video pretty well.
Seems I have made some progress on my listening practice during the past six episodes...
Hopefully we can enjoy more episodes coming soon. Thanks!
