Sample Writing
  • Dear Derek,
  • 1. I have just heard from the Dalaba Tourist Company, and they have given me the job! Thank you very much for your introduction to them.
  • 2. I was sure I had not done very well in my interview, so the news that I had got the job was quite unexpected.
slide3
3. I went for the interview two weeks ago at the company’s office in Baker Street, and I was very nervous beforehand, but even more so when I saw that there were three people in the room.
  • 4. First of all, they greeted me in French and I was so surprised that I replied in English. If I had not been so stupid, I would have realized that they were going to test my languages.
slide4
5. I managed to keep up a conversation with them, first in French and then in German, but then they began to question me on my knowledge of Europe; I have visited very few places in Europe and I felt very ignorant when I told them this.
  • 6. Still, it seems that they were impressed by the fact that I was able to describe those places that I had visited in some detail.
slide5
7. I had to pretend that I was in a place I knew and talk about it as I would have done if I had been describing it to a party of American tourists.
  • 8. One question I was sure I had answered wrongly was : “What would you do, if you were traveling in a coach which had a breakdown?”I replied that I would immediately hire another one.
slide6
9. I decided afterwards that I would have been much more sensible if I had answered that I would have sent for a breakdown lorry from a garage; but it seems that they will go to any expense in order to spare their clients any inconvenience.
  • 10. Still, obviously you went through this kind of interview yourself and you won’t want to hear any more about mine; I start work at the beginning of November, and I hope to see you some time after that.
  • Yours,
  • Michael
