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




Every time I see Philip Hart I remember David Brent from The Office, he looks like him pretty much, are you agree?
