    Me too, it was a good one

    Tuesday, June 10th 2014

      I thought it was much easier to use this application software, however the technical advice is practically a must to get better results.

      The tips to get the most out of skype were the best part of this video lesson.

      Great video, but a hands-on lesson would it be much better.

      Thanks Jade for sharing your experience using Skype.


      Tuesday, June 10th 2014

Thank you Jade.

What about Question #5? Is there a mistake in the answers? My answer “true” was wrong

Monday, June 9th 2014

    Hi! There is nothing wrong with the quiz. Jade advised not to use it, because then they can’t call you. (If the link doesn’t work properly it is on 11 minutes 33 seconds)

    Monday, June 9th 2014

      Exactly, if you put your status to ‘busy’ then they can’t call you.

      Friday, June 27th 2014

        I made the same misteke as danger86. I think it’s a tricky question. :)

        Sunday, November 2nd 2014

        If you call, then you can put busy before call.

        Thursday, March 26th 2020

    No, there’s no a mistake. Your answer is wrong because you have to set your Skype status to “available” BEFORE you start the interview. If you set your status to “busy” BEFORE the interview, the interviewer might think you’re not available to talk to him/her.

    Monday, June 9th 2014

      The first advise was to check the timezone of the interviewer. It means that yo are calling him.And to protect youself from unnecessary calls you set up the “Busy” status. Correct me if I’m wrong =)

      Monday, June 9th 2014

        You have to check the timezone, because you need to make sure that you’re going to the interview on time; you’re going to be there at the right time of your appointment, because it’s important to get a good impression by being on time. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re calling the interviewer. She says you can ignore the people who are calling you during the interview. Another thing you can do is to set up to “busy” as soon as you start the interview, not before.:-)

        Monday, June 9th 2014

          You are a Skype expert Junior! :)

          Friday, June 27th 2014

Monday, June 9th 2014

Thank you for your interesting lesson, Jade :)

Monday, June 9th 2014

Hi Jade, well I scored 8/10, two wrong answers. Firstly, on the 2nd question, because I hadn´t put a great deal of attention, to the word “shouldn´t” and I answered “use an ethernet cable….”. Secondly, on the 4th question, my answer was “… Because Skype interview and real life interview are the same”. The truth is, you don´t “shake hands” but you will say “hello”, and for me that have the same meaning, I guess.

Monday, June 9th 2014

    You have to read my questions very carefully or else these small mistakes can happen. :)

    Friday, June 27th 2014

Thumbs up! Cheers.

It’s also a good practice to close real windows.
Because people can hear the noise from them: wind, cars, dogs and so on.

Good luck to everyone on your interview :)

I just got a mistake regarding the sound query.. I thought it would be impolite to end the call and call back again.. Since the interview was already starting once you two begin conversing..
Anyway, thanks!

Thank you, it’s very helpful :-)

Sunday, February 8th 2015

Hey Jane, I just signed up on this site. And I just had a look at all the different teachers. In my opinion you have by far the most proper and nicest English accent of all of them. I really appreciate it. I also like Benjamins English, but you tend to have some special way of forming bi-vowels.. What kind of accent is that? It’s close to standard English, isn’t it? I am planning a language stay in the UK, where can I go to get this accent?
Best regards, Lukas

Saturday, February 21st 2015

Thursday, April 16th 2015

Hi Teacher, i am new comer so I saw your video and I very like it, Thanks for your support.

Saturday, May 30th 2015

Thank you for those useful Skype tips, Jade!
I’ve got a question on the expression “dramatically improve”.. Is it a common & a neutral expression? It seems that from the point of view of the semantics, “dramatically” means something bad, while “improve” on the opposite means something good.
So is it a common & neutral way (or rather a bit sarcastic) to say:
“The headset with an extending microphone can dramatically improve your Skype call quality..”?
Thank You!

Friday, June 5th 2015

Hi guys, my advise is to keep the captions on the youtube player (CC button) always switched on. It’s really useful thing, especially when you’ve some problems of understanding Jade’s pronunciation.

Friday, December 18th 2015

    If you’re visiting this site from China, all our videos are hosted on Youtube, which is blocked. You’ll have to find another way around.

i try again,but cannot open the youtube com .
i think it is very difficulty to open the web in china .
