In today's programme Simon and Jean invite our students to sit in our special 'Hot Seat' to practise interview skills. Think about a job you would like to do. Then imagine you are in the Hot Seat and answer these questions. Try to speak in English for two minutes in response to each question.

"Tell us why you would be an ideal candidate for this job."

"Can you tell me about a time when you were involved in a successful project? How was it a success and what was your role in it?"

"Can you tell me about a time when you had to persuade somebody to do something for you? What did you do to try to win them over?"


在今天的节目中,Simon 和董征主要教授的几个方面如下:

How to structure your answers

The best way to answer interview questions is in a clear and structured way with a short conclusion. How does our Business Expert Keith Dugdale structure his tip about body language? You can listen again to the clip by clicking the link further down this page.

Getting your delivery right

Speaking too quietly or hesitantly can send the wrong impression. In the programme, our producer William Kremer gives a perfect demonstration of how NOT to give an interview answer!

Business Vocabulary

In the programme we listen again to Keith’s tip about using business vocabulary. Do you know what the following terms mean?

To set objectives
To prioritise your time
To focus on outcomes
