    Hi there, just discovered your channel through Vicki Hollett. I love your style and the way that you subtitle the tricky parts with text in French (my focus is German speakers but a very transferable approach) I loved the animation thought bubble too, cute!

    chupala kristina!!

  11. January 12, 2017 at 10:33 am —

    I will use it in my Pre-Intermediate English course. However, I must admit the examples sound boring. You could redo it showing how to phrase things in a more oral way. That's what learners of English need. Your examples read as texts, not as presentations.

  12. January 12, 2017 at 10:33 am —

    hi madam….I am kichu from India… I subscribed your channel because to improve my communication skills in English… when I talk with someone in English there is some starting trouble will occurred… so I can't end up with smoothly… but I will try my best…

  15. January 12, 2017 at 10:33 am —

    Thank you for your good ideas ..

  16. January 12, 2017 at 10:33 am —

    Gotta say though, the idea of telling a story is a bit clever. Not that I actually tried it yet, but I can see how someone who is good at telling stories might have an advantage there.

    But what if the only job experience that you have is doing volunteer work at High School?

That helped who I am today, I don't know but this is how I successful I was

  23. January 12, 2017 at 10:33 am —

    Miss Christina, I was so impressed about what youve shared with us. I am a fresh graduate and I want to get a job at this moment, but the problem is that I'm not good in English, Rather the usage of the words , I get tounged tied, If someones ask me.

  24. January 12, 2017 at 10:33 am —

    Absolutely terrible examples. This is how someone who has no idea what the company / HR wants to get out of this question imagines this should be done.
    You need to get a lot more specific than this, you have to list specific experiences, specific examples, specific achievements, specific goals, and specific reasons why you want to work for this company. Nobody is interested in your childhood, especially not if your story is just "I wanted to work in a big company".

  25. January 12, 2017 at 10:33 am —

    This would be helpful for my job interview in school tommorrow. My skills in english will be tests and I'm glad our school practicing this type of preparations before we get our job career. Thanks Ms. Cristina!

    I grew up in Taipei City in Taiwan . When I finished college I knew what I wanted to do . I wanted to study in the U.S. and that was it . So I enrolled in a M.A. TESOL program at Eastern Michigan University .
    Later on , I decided to start teaching English because I realized that English is an universal communication .
    The message of this program convinced me to take action . It helped me to arrive where I am now . That's why I'm very excited about the possibility to work with you . I'd love to help my English learners with new approaches and make their lives easier . The right mindset with the right way can make a HUGE difference . And I am eager to be a part of it . Thank you .
