    I have an interview in about two weeks and I have to prepare a presentation using a visual aid or prop- what would you suggest? I'm having trouble to think of one!

    Also, as it is languages, they will be testing my fluency in the languages I want to teach- through a written task- what topics will be included in this part of the interview and will they be asking me some questions during the interview in the target language(s)?

    You will definitely be asked questions in your languages during the interview and these will be regarding teaching. As for the presentation is it a teaching presentation as if you were teaching something to a class? If so choose something easy to prepare and deliver. A simple grammar point, hair and eye colours, animals and show how you would follow this up; what activities you would get the class to do next to practice and embed this new knowledge.

    We had to write in our strongest language - 500 words, about a memorable experience or teacher. Include past tense, present tense and future tense and opinion verbs as well as sophisticated vocabulary.

    All questions regarding teaching were asked and answered in English.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for both replying! If you can remember, what questions were asked and what universities were they that you interviewed for?

    Thank you replying!
    If you can remember what type of questions were asked? Just in preparation.
