I think I've learned a lot from this interview, especially after I did exercises which helped me understand the subject and caused that I didn't have to learn by heart served vocabulary.
I've got to know that during interview it is important to speak confidently. It has given me plenty of useful tips, for instance when you have no idea about what to talk with examiner to use sentences like "Let me think; That's an interesting question; It's difficult to choose one in particular". Moreover it's shown great, we can even say sophisticated words generally connected with sport and school goals like "keep physically fit; good for mental well-being and self-esteem; the lesson of teamwork, discipline and fairness."

well, i guess yeah. I have always been interested in language specially English. I have learned many good sentences and also that it is important to be confident and talk not too fast and not too slowly when you are in an interview.

I liked the participating aspect in this video.I've learnt that you shouldn't give general answers but rather you should be specific. I also enjoyed the activities that accompanied the video.

I want to live in my beautiful country, but if I were a famous sportsperson, I would interviewed. I have learned how to say: on one hand and on the other hand.

If I pass my school entrance exams, there will be a interview in 2 weeks. This video is quite helpful for me actually. I think I've learn the following:
1.Talk in well-structured.
2.Show confident and passion during the interview.
3.I can say " it's my pleasure" after interviewer said " Thank you for coming ". ( I always just say thank you to the interviewer at last.

It depends on where i decide to go when I grow up. I didn't learn anything in particular watching this video except for some possibly some phrases.

Yes, I think so. I learn to use different types of words not just "and, so, then" . Also to not speak too fast or too slow. And more.

I am certain that I will have to do an English interview in the future because I plan on moving to another country when I get a bit older. I learned that I have to speak slower so that I don't mess up as many times as I did.

Hi gianggiagn

Thanks for the tips, very clear!
By the way, may I ask a question about 1)?
Could you tell me what speed you think is appropriate? :)
For example,
a) Largo (48-56)
b) Langhet (60-66)
c) Adagio (69-70)

Looking forward to your reply✨

I have learned from this video that :
1) Do not speak too fast or too slowly
2) Give long answers as possible
3) Use " I think, I believe,...."
4) If you haven't had ideas about what you are going to talk to the examiner, you can use " Hmm, let me think/ That's an interesting question/ It's difficult to choose one in particular.. ( but not too many times )
5) Use good expressions " keep physically fit/...good for mental well being and self esteem.../ the lessons of teamwork, discipline and fairness...
6) Be confident !
7) Smile and say "thank you" to the examiner after finishing the interview.
