BIZ TALK

Using English for business purposes can be challenging. Typically speaking business English is more formal than the language used in everyday situations. However you need to consider not only the use of the language, but also the culture when using English in a business environment.

Interviewing can be a stressful situation in your own language, let alone in a second language. The most important things to help you when interviewing in English are preparation and practice.

It is important to know how you will respond to typical interview questions such as "What is your greatest strength/weakness?" and to practice your responses, but NOT memorize them. Whenever possible use examples to support to your answer. Try to use positive expressions and tone and demonstration your confidence in your answers. Finally, don’t forget to smile! Smiling will also help you to stay relaxed and natural in your interview.
