I stayed up late reading Scott Thornbury. I had diphthongs written all the way up my arm. I had memorised definitions of lexis and discourse. In the end, though, my interview wasn’t so scary. It lasted about an hour, and was structured in this way:
- Free writing about my expectations of the course (15 minutes)
- Language questions: did I know my passive from my active, and my conditional tenses?
- Teaching questions: what textbooks do I like, for example
- Teaching practice: five minutes to prepare, five minutes to do it
Hope that helps you. I’d say anyone who had been teaching for a few years, and had a reflective approach to teaching, would do well because it’s aimed at uncovering your strengths rather than your weaknesses.
