    Firstly, thank you Emma for your teaching, secondly, That’s my question too. I chose the third option, but it is wrong.

    Friday, August 23rd 2019

    The answer to question 3 has been fixed. Sorry for this.

    Saturday, August 24th 2019

    I though the same thing too.

    Monday, March 16th 2020

    The first option is related to your possible past experience…

    Saturday, April 4th 2020

You should be specific i think is the correct one.please i need more improvement in this lesson.

Annie, the person whose comment is above o maybe below mine. I think you are right the answer for the number 3 question is wrong, maybe they did it on purpose 😏😏😏, because in number one answer they ask you to tell something that already happened in the past. Well that’s what i think 😆…

Friday, August 23rd 2019

Hi Emma. Me too, think about question 03 that the phrase how would you deal.. is a situational question. Am I right?

Friday, August 23rd 2019

I got 9/10 and wrong at number 6. But I think the answer: told my supervise and find out a solution together is the better answer. Thank Emma

Friday, August 23rd 2019

So I got, 8/10, It´s good.Thank Emma.

Friday, August 23rd 2019

Hi emma. Excellent class. However I don’t understand why in question # 3 the right answer is the first option. Can you explain that ?

Friday, August 23rd 2019

I would like more example about Foreign Trade area interviews

Friday, August 23rd 2019

Thanks Emma for a interesting lesson. I had a problem with a question no 3. Maybe you will explain it when you have a time. Thank you!!!

Friday, August 23rd 2019

    You were right! The incorrect answer was marked correct, but it’s fixed now.

    Saturday, August 24th 2019

Dear Emma! I’m sure it’s not your fault, but the answer to question 3 is wrong. Obviously, the correct answer is ‘How would you deal with an angry customer?’, not the first one, ‘Describe a time when you had to make a difficult decision.’, which the system gives as the correct one. Thank you for your time and effort,

Saturday, August 24th 2019

    The correct answer at the question 8th is grammatically wrong. Would cannot be with the conditional if. I am almost sure about that. Here the second conditional is applied because it is talking about situational questions. In other words unprobable situations.
    Have a look and you will see.

    Monday, March 2nd 2020

Oh I got 9/10. Thanks Emma. However I thought an interview question that has a line that says “describe a time when you *had* to make a difficult decision is suggesting you talk about your past experience which I thought it’s a behavioral interview question, because it’s assumed it happened sometime in the past. I don’t know but please kindly shed some light on this. Thanks.

Saturday, August 24th 2019

Emma, could you please comment question number 3?

Saturday, August 24th 2019

9/10 I understood very well your explanation about situational interwieww questions , there are england teacher for me are verye dificult to undertand, but i think that i need to hear them.

Tuesday, February 25th 2020

Thank you so much teacher Emma for this lesson. It missed me too much to have a lesson like this one.

However I have a doubt at the answer of question 8 and it´s the next one: Is the conditional IF with the modal WOULD? As far as I´m concerned i was not taught like that. So, Should the part of the answer not be in past simple instead? It means: If i were able to get the assignment…..
I wait for an answer to this doubt as soon as possible.
Thank you so much again.
Have a good one
