Hi I am just recently subscribing to your channel because you sound like a very good teacher/mentor/communicator for people like myself who is struggle to speak proper English. Thank you a lot. However, there is one thing that I am hoping everyone should be aware of is the statement you made about "maintain eye contact". I am actually a qualified Social Worker here in Australia and what I learned there are some other cultures including my own culture that eye contact during a conversation is rude and intimidate. In my culture when you maintain eye contact ifs a sign of challenge ready to fight, not afraid of you. Another interesting reason why other cultures don't believe in maintain eye contact when it comes to a brother and sister relationship. In my culture you cannot look straight to your sister's eyes because if is a form of lust/intimacy/sexual/ etc... however, you can maintain eye contact when you are a boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and wife because of the special connection in between. I hope this long comment would help you understand why I disagree of maintain eye contact... by the way I like your video...thanks new subscriber...

If the candidate says that he is content with his present job. Won't the interviewer cut him dead....!? Such answers by which candidate expresses his dignity will definitely lessen the chances of being recruited, at some extent this could work in favour of candidate. What amount of indigency should the interviewee show to achieve the job?

Tomorrow a have an interview, in english ! I listen to your video several times. I did't memorise the answer by I started to speak about myself home alone :)) I know I don't have a good english, I am rather afraid, but at least is not my mother tongue, so I try to be more confident. Now i'm practicing my english by writing you a comment. Hello from Romania ! You are a great teacher ! You motivate me to improve my english. I don't give up !

Pick your moments. You have to learn where the best places for description belong, and take advantage of those moments. When: Dialogue tags, or better yet, in lieu of a dialogue tag. The average novice writer will write dialogue like this: “I hate you,” he said. A more experienced novice writer may write, “I hate you,” he said just before he slammed the door. An advanced writer realizes that the dialogue tag is unnecessary as long as the reader is cued as to who is doing the speaking, as in: He opened the door slowly, his gloved hands tight on the knob. “I hate you.” Though he walked out with a veneer of calm poise, he slammed the door behind him. Openings, to set the scene. Many novice writers go totally overboard and will describe the setting at the beginning of the book in great detail. They may even write a prologue about the distant history of their world to give the reader an even better grasp of the setting. I’m against this practice, but it is absolutely essential to set the scene in the openings of books, chapters, etc. so that the reader can be immediately immersed in the world. To fail to describe the setting in an opening leaves the reader trapped in what’s known by pro writers as ‘the white room.’ This may sound like a contradiction, but it’s not. You have to open with the world described through the character’s senses, preferably all of them, preferably while the character is under stress. Every bit of description should drip with that character’s personality and opinion. Even if the character isn’t included in the first words in a physical way, their personality can be present: The zen-like sitting room with its single vase taking up an entire shelf, and the unrelenting OCD perfection of a tiny coffee table placed just so on a grass matt, was probably someone’s idea of simple living, but the only place to sit looked too clean for a human being’s ass. Maybe an angel could live there, or a photographer if he kept to the edges of the room and never disturbed anything. During ‘breathers’, but don’t stop the action because you’re so in love with the moment. Breathers usually occur after a devastating plot point. The character(s) take stock, doubt their abilities to go on, heal, despair, etc. A lot of times these scenes come off better if there’s little or no dialogue. A great movie example is the shawarma scene after the big end-of-movie battle in The Avengers. No one says a thing. They just chew. Breathers are a great time to get deep into the body of your pov character. You can exploit every ache and pain, every cut in the heart and mind, every offensive stench in the alley or the lingering perfume of a dead lover mingled with blood and oil. But do keep the scene moving along. I see a lot of breather scenes with the character sobbing and hopeless at the beginning, and by the end of the scene they’re still sobbing and hopeless. Enact change. Build the tension. Make sure that the scene begins and ends with different emotions, different options, or fewer or more options. You can use descriptions to highlight different aspects of the setting to help bring your point across. For example, in the alley, at first the character may be up against a wall still damp from a vagrant’s piss, but by the end the character may notice light at the end. It’s headlights that belong to a familiar VW bug with a rusty, dented door. The door opens, and she says, “Let’s go.”

HELLO SWEETIE and THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK WITH ANOTHER RELEVANT AND APPRECIATIVE video lesson !!!!! I have to "tell you something about yourself" and that is the truth about what i think and what i feel about you. You are knowledgeable enough about this subject to discuss it intelligently and usefully . . .and you are 1000% right...... You are not a person whatever ,no ,no ,no, no.YOU ARE THE MOST RELIABLE, THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND THE MOST TRUSTWORTHY TEACHER I KNOW.... YOU ARE "MY EVERYTHING".Yes, that's right. You are such a great guy with such beautiful eyes (oh ,i love them more then you think )and i have to confess that YOUR COUNTENANCE IS MILD AND PLEASANT AND HAS A HIGHLY INTELLECTUAL EXPRESSION !!!!!!! You're in my DNA sweetheart and every minute ,every hour i miss you more! Well, that's it, there you are ,i hope you're not mad on me for telling you that , AS ALWAYS STAY MELLOW YOU TOO and i'll see you next time.

Plus, as we've discussed earlier, one or two 'mild swearings' wouldn't go amiss.:-) Seriously, I've listened to you with great excitement even though I'm looking forward to retirement rather than a new job interview. But you gave us a great tip, which is always valuable for me, and yet I tend to forget about it: when (in certain circumstances) an Englishman asks you a question, you need to know the answer he expects, and not the answer you want to give. A typical example, to begin with, is 'How d'you do?" or more modern "Alright?' And I need to make my statements shorter. Now.
LetThemTalkTV (1 месяц назад)
ha ha, yes, you are right I should have used some mild swearing. Maybe in part two. I'm honoured that you watched the video even though you have no need for a new job. I agree with you about about getting the answer we expect. An interesting point and I'll bear it in mind. Cheers.

Great video content! Forgive me for chiming in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you heard the talk about - Schallingora Information Investigation Scheme (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a smashing one off guide for learning what you need to say to get hired in a job interview without the hard work. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my best friend Jordan finally got great success with it.
