Interviews can be awkward and nerve-wracking at the best of time. However, imagine having an interview for an important job or internship in a language which is not your own, such as English! Whether your internship is in the USA or the job is with an English-speaking multinational, I provide tips, role-plays and practical advice to non-native English-speaking candidates to improve their chances of success at interview.

Essay Correction Service

Sometimes students are too busy to attend English classes regularly. However, they still feel that it is essential to practise their writing skills, as writing is one of the most challenging of the four skills. So, in response to this need, I have decided to offer an essay correction service to those who want to maintain and improve the English writing style. In this service, you will get: correction of grammar, correction of spelling and punctuation, improvement of sentence flow, improvement of vocabulary.

How to improve your English

1. Work out what kind of learner you are. Are you a reader, writer or speaker? Whatever your focus is, develop a learning strategy to help you progress.

2. Need help? Get help! If there's something that you don't understand, don't ignore it - ask your English teacher for an explanation. Remember: there are no marks for pretending to understand when you don't.

3. Revise, revise, revise! Sadly, there aren't many of us born with photographic memories. So do make sure that your factor into your study times a revision slot to help consolidate your learning.

4. Try to factor in regular breaks into your daily study programme, as it isn't recommended for students to study for more than 45 minutes at a time. Have a 10-minute break, stretch your legs and get some fresh air - it will help.

5. Tempting as it may be, try not to be in a hurry to move up a level. Focus on fully consolidating what that level has to offer before moving up.

6. Watching DVDs rather than TV is much better as a learning resource for a lower-level learner of English. DVD has a replay and subtitle function to allow you to catch any information you might have missed the first time.

7. For advanced learners, however, watching TV is more demanding as it only gives such students one chance to hear something correctly. This is particularly useful as it provides great practice for speaking to native English speakers so that you don't need to ask them to repeat themselves.

8. Try reading graded readers to increase your word power and structure awareness. Feel a sense of achievement when you turn the last page!

9. If you can't get a hold of graded readers, try children's books! Although the grammar and vocabulary are easier, such books provide a good alternative to the graded reader.

10. If you are studying a particular grammatical concept (e.g. the passive voice), search newspapers to see if you can recognise it and the context in which it is used.
