08 common Interview question and answers - Job Interview Skills
08 common Interview question and answers - Job Interview Skills 1. "Tell me a little about yourself." You should take this opportunity to show your communication skills by speaking clearly and concisely in an organized manner. Because there is no right or wrong answer for this question, it is important to appear friendly. 2. "What are your strengths?" This is a popular interview question. They want to know what you think of yourself. Although this is a general question, there is a wrong and right answer. The wrong answer is a generic answer saying you are organized and friendly. Although it will not hurt you during the interview, it will certainly not help you either. Answer this question based on the type of job you are applying for. 3. "What are your weaknesses?" For this answer, you should display a weakness that can be seen as a strength. There are many types of answers that will work. Some answers will be good answers for certain jobs, while the same answer will be a bad answer for a different job. Select an answer that will work for the position you are applying for. 4. "Where do you see yourself in five years?" This question primarily depends on where you are in your career. A person with 5 years of experience will have different goals than a person with no work experience.This question is asked to see how serious a candidate is about his or her career. Some people might not know their goals, and some people might have goals of becoming rich and retiring early. Those are incorrect answers for this question. The type of answer you want to give is an ambitious answer that shows you really love your career. A good interviewer will read between the lines and find out if a person is going to be a hard worker or just a mediocre one. Being descriptive and shooting for a big goal is something interviewers want to hear. 5. "What do you know about our company?" A typical job interview question, asked to find out how much company research you have conducted, is "What do you know about this company?" Prepare in advance, and in a word, research, so you can provide relevant and current information about your prospective employer to the interviewer. 6. "Are you good at dealing with change?" Dealing with change is common in the work place. A simple yes will not be sufficient to impress the interviewer. This is another type of question where everyone will have similar answers. Of course everyone is going to claim being excellent dealing with change. You got to communicate that you are really good at dealing with change. 7. "Do you work well under pressure?" In most cases, the best answer to this question is answering yes. Working well under pressure is a good trait to have. However, I think if you answer that you work the same with pressure and without pressure, the interviewer will be more impressed. However, you will need to explain in words why this is better. 8. "How do you make important decisions?" There are many ways to answer this question, and if you have a reasonable method of making decisions, it will probably be sufficient. One answer I thought of included not being afraid of asking your manager. You can follow up by saying even the best needs mentoring, and you always want to improve. So basically, this could work as an answer, but depending on the job, you might have a better shot with an answer like my example.

Job Interview Question & Answers for freshers - Free English Lessons. Blog : http://www.learnex.in Website : http://www.letstalkpodcast.com Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast youtube : http://www.youtube.com/learnexmumbai Straight out of college and looking for a job or probably you already have an interview lined up. Here are few tips for freshers that will help to ace the job interview.You have completed your education and heading towards a new phase of life and you really don't want to goof up. So let's look at some tips to answer the most common questions asked to a fresher in a job interview. 1) Tell me about yourself..... Remember the person asking you about yourself is not someone you met in a coffee shop,if all goes well he or she will be your boss or your employer. So answers like "I love being on Facebook all day long" or "I changed 3 girlfriends in my four years of college" will not be the right thing to say. The things that you need to mention is your education background,some information about your parents or your siblings but you need not get into detail.Also you can talk about the things you like to do in your free time or something about your personality traits. 2) Why should we hire you? The purpose of this question is to see if you are really interested in taking up this job or you are here just because you are jobless or probably you want to make some quick money to buy a new smart phone. Relate the job requirements to your candidature and explain why your are a suitable candidate for this job.A company would like to hire you only if you can add some value to the organisation. So focus on your skills and how helpful can it be for what you are being interviewed. Talk about your abilities such as you grasp new things quickly or you have a very flexible attitude. These are some qualities that a organisation looks forward for in a fresh graduate. 3) Talk about your strengths: You need to prepare for this one way in advance before an interview. List all your strengths in a notepad and try to find ways to back those traits. For example " I have always submitted all my projects and assignments before the deadline date". This speaks about you being punctual. Another example :I was leading a team for a big college presentation" so this speaks about your leadership qualities. Don't boast about how goo you are but do tell the facts and do't lie. 4) Are you planning for future studies? One should answer this question very tactfully. The company wants to know if you are here for good or you will just make use of their training resources and say goodbye to them. SO if you are pursuing further studies make sure you mention it and give a reason to it. Also if you are taking distance education or part time courses its important for you to mention it as you will need to take leaves for exams. 5) What do you know about our company: Don't just wake up in the morning get dressed and go for the interview. This question is one reason to do some research about the company. Use the search tools on the internet or go through the website, see and understand what the company is into, what are their products or who are their clients and so on. Don't end up asking silly question like are you good pay masters or who are your competitors etc. Always practice your answers with full confidence, good enthusiastic tone and maintain a good body language. Make sure you give assurance to the company that you are here to build a long term relationship with the organisation and add value to it.

Adverbs those often cause difficulty -  still, yet, and already. - English Grammar lesson
Adverbs those often cause difficulty - still, yet, and already. - English Grammar lesson Take the quiz : http://www.learnex.in/adverbs-those-often-cause-difficulty-still-yet-and-already Three adverbs that often cause difficulty are still, yet, and already. They are all used when actions are going to happen, or are expected to happen, or were unexpected around the present time. Here we go into more detail about the difference between still, yet and already. Still Still - Still is used to talk about an action or situation which continues to the present because it has not finished.It often refers to something happening for a longer period than expected. Still is followed by a verb and sometimes by an adjective and it goes in the middle of a sentence. Examples - Do you still live with your parents? I'm still upset with your behavior. It is still raining. Yet Yet - We use yet mostly in questions and negative sentences. Using yet shows that we are expecting something to happen or has happened. Yet comes at the end of a sentence or a question and is used with present perfect. Examples Has he finished yet? Have they seen the film yet? They haven't paid yet. Often we use still and yet together in a sentence to explain why an action is being continued. Examples I am still going to the college because I haven't passed my last year yet. We still don't know who will be our new boss. The owners haven't told us yet. Already Already - We use already to talk about things that have happened often sooner than expected. It goes in the middle or at the end of a sentence just before or after a verb and is commonly used with the present perfect or past perfect. Already is also used to show surprise. Examples She's fixed it already. Have you both met already met? It's 12'o clock already? I hope this lesson clears your doubts about when and how to use these adverbs.
Difference between - Even though, Even if, Even when & Even so - Free English lesson
Difference between - Even though, Even if, Even when & Even so - Free English lesson Link to Test : http://learnex.in/difference-between-even-though-even-if-even-when-even-so/ When a strong statement is made, the statement is often followed with an example containing "even." The word "even" adds shock, surprise, or excitement to the example. Even Though / Even When / Even If "Even" can be combined with the words "though," "when" and "if." It emphasizes that a result is unexpected. Study the following examples and explanations to learn how these expressions differ. Examples: Even though John studied very hard, he still failed his English tests. John always studied hard. But, unfortunately, he failed the tests. Even when John studied very hard, he still failed his English tests. Bob occassionally studied hard, but it didn't really make a difference. Every time he studied, he still failed. Even if John studied very hard, he still failed his English tests. John didn't normally study very hard. But in the rare situation when he did try to study hard, he still failed the test. IMPORTANT These expressions are not always interchangeable; the context of the sentence will affect your choice: "Even though" is used when something is always done or a fact is mentioned. "Even when" is used when something is occasionally done. "Even if" is used when something is rarely done or just imagined. Even So "Even so" is very much like the word "but" or "however." "Even so" is different in that it is used with surprising or unexpected results. Examples: She is loud and unfriendly. Even so, I like her. She is loud and unfriendly, so it is unexpected that I like her.

Using   I, me, my, mine, and myself correctly – English Grammar Lesson
Using I, me, my, mine, and myself correctly – English Grammar Lesson. Take the quiz - http://www.learnex.in/using-i-me-my-mine-and-myself-correctly If you’re confused by the words I, me, my, mine, and myself, you’re not alone! In this lesson, you will learn the difference between them and when to use the right one. I and ME I is the subject – the person who does the action in the sentence. Only use “I” when you are referring to yourself in the subject of the sentence. In other words, you are the one taking action. I gave John the book. Me is the object – the person who receives the action in the sentence. The pronoun “me” should be used when someone else will perform the action to, or for, you. John gave me the book. OR: John gave the book to me. When there are more than one subject or object people do get a little confused , so we will see how to use it correctly John and I saw Jane at the party. John = subject I = subject Jane= object The teacher called Jim and me. The teacher = subject Jim = object me = object MY and MINE Use my before the word, and use mine after the word. Remember my is always followed by noun where as mine replaces the noun. John is my friend. John is a friend of mine. Those are my glasses. Those glasses are mine. MYSELF The pronoun “myself” should only be used when you are performing the action on yourself. No one else can do anything to yourself. The word myself is used in two cases: When you do something to yourself Eg) I accidentally cut myself with the knife. For emphasis - when you want to emphasize the “I” Eg) I baked this cake myself! BY MYSELF The expression by myself means alone: I went out to dinner by myself.

However in this English lesson Niharika brings you five important things to avoid while you are learning to speak English. Website : http://www.letstalkpodcast.com Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast Youtube : http://www.youtube.com/learnexmumbai Don’t be ashamed to speak up Many English learners are quite embarrassed and feel shy to speak English, important thing to note here is if you are going to feel shy and embarrassed to speak English, how would you practice the language?, how would you become fluent? Even if you have limited vocabulary, your pronunciation is not that great, your accent is not perfect, don’t worry, just speak up, you are gradually going to improve. Don’t be frustrated with yourself. Getting frustrated is not uncommon, it happens with all learners, but if constantly start feeling frustrated you are not going to learn English. There are time when you are not being able to describe things effortlessly , there are times you wouldn’t get the right vocabulary when you need it the most, just don’t bang your head, relax you will improve as time progresses. Getting frustrated just won’t help. Don’t take things personally. While speaking in English you might come across situation where people don’t understand you at the first go, maybe because of your sentence structure, your pronunciation, or even your accent. Please understand there are people with different accents across the world, they speak English with a touch of their native accent. If someone doesn’t understand you accent at the first go, it’s okay, you can repeat it for them, just go slow and you would get it right. Don’t compare yourself with native English speakers. The biggest mistake that English learners make is they compare themselves with native English speakers. Many learners start to think, I have been learning English for a long time, but still I don’t speak like the native ones. The best thing is to be happy with the level you have achieved, you are still learning and one fine day you will speak as native speakers do. Keep up the good work going. If you get fluent, don’t be arrogant. It happens, once you get fluent in English you start getting to feel that edge over other learners and you start insulting them. Arrogance will not lead you anywhere, remember you never inserted a chip in your brain to learn English, it’s a learning process, some are slow learners, everyone in this world is different and have varied pace to learn. Be patient with new learners, don’t insult them, rather encourage them to speak up, share the experiences you had during your learning process. I hope you have enjoyed this English lesson and remember the points I shared with you to avoid while learning to speak English.

Difference between - Problem, Trouble & Issue - Free Spoken English Lesson
Difference between - Problem, Trouble & Issue - Free English Lesson The words "problem", "trouble", and "issue" are very close in meaning. What's the difference bewtween them? The answer is quite complicated, actually! Let's look at the meaning of each word and some of the ways that they're used: The meanings of "problem", "trouble", and "issue" The word "problem" is connected with the word "solution". A problem is something negative that needs to be solved. Some bad things that happen can't be called "problems" because they're unsolvable. For example, if you broke your leg, you probably wouldn't call your broken leg a "problem". The broken leg can't be fixed. On the other hand, figuring out how to get to work with a broken leg is a problem. "Trouble" is less connected to solutions. It's more connected to negative feelings that you get when bad things happen. "Issue" is associated with difficult decisions and disagreements. We use "issue" in a similar way to "problem" or "trouble", but it also has another meaning. It can mean a topic that people are talking about or disagreeing on. Social issues and political issues are examples of this kind of "issue".

Difference between - 'Clean out', 'Clean off', 'Clean up' & 'Clean away' -  English Grammar Lesson
Learn to speak fluent English -- Accent Training, Correct Grammar usage, Idioms, Phrases and vocabulary with example sentences. Before Ceema explains the differences between "clean up", "clean out", etc. here's a warning: if you don't already know these phrases, it's a bad idea to learn them all at the same time. If you already know these expressions and you'd like to figure out exactly how they're different, Watch on! Spaces and messes When you talk about cleaning, you're talking about two different things: the space that you're cleaning the mess that's in that space You can use each form of "clean" to talk about either cleaning the space: eg. We need to clean up the living room. ORcleaning the mess that's there: eg. We need to clean up those dirty dishes. The different forms of 'clean' You "clean out" the inside of a space that has a large mess in it: clean out the refridgerator clean out your car clean out your desk You "clean off" a flat surface: clean off the counter clean off the whiteboard clean off your windshield You "clean up" a room or a larger area: clean up your bedroom clean up the city clean up after the concert clean up your hard drive "Clean away" is different from the others because you only use it to talk about the messy things that you're cleaning, not the space that those things are in: clean away the dishes clean away the mud clean away the broken branches 'Clean' by itself What about just using the word "clean" by itself? It usually means to clean the most obvious part of something. For example: clean the toilet This means to clean the inside of the toilet bowl. clean the floor This means to clean the surface of the floor. If using the word "clean" by itself would lead to any confusion, use one of the other phrases instead. For example, instead of saying "clean the cabinets", say: Can you clean out the cabinets? Or: Can you clean off the cabinets?

How to speak effectively over the phone? - English lesson - Telephone skills
How to Effectively Communicate over the Phone? Effective communications over the phone require clarity of speech, knowing what you want to convey, and a willingness to engage with someone using good listening skills and prompts. This article provides some of the basics required to effectively communicate during a phone call. 1.Answer the phone specifying who you are. It can be disorienting for a caller when they don't know with whom they're speaking. Try to have a bright, happy voice when answering too, as this gets the conversation off to a good start. 2.Speak clearly. Pronounce your words well and try to avoid mumbling, gushing, or speaking too quickly. If the person on the other end is hard of hearing or speaks a different language from your own, speak slowly and either raise your voice or speak more clearly than usual. 3.Use words that make sense to the person you're speaking with. It doesn't make a lot of sense to speak teenspeak with an elderly grandmother. She isn't necessarily going to "get it". Adjust your language to fit the listener. 4.Use good & descriptive language when you are trying to evoke images in the listener's mind. If you need to describe something well, try to choose words that identify its shape, color, size, etc. 5.Write down important points before making a call. If you're worried that you'll forget something when you call someone, or that you'll get tongue-tied and not say what you meant to, write a prompt sheet before the call and keep it in front of you. Refer to it if you get flustered during the call. 6.Repeat important points during a call.

English Lesson - Learn the difference between 'So', 'Very' & 'Too' ( Speak Fluent English)
English Lesson - Learn the difference between 'So', 'Very' & 'Too' ( Speak Fluent English) Take the quiz : http://www.learnex.in/difference-between-so-very-too In this English lesson let’s take a quick look at some popular words that can often be used in the same way: very, too and so. Very In English communication the word 'very' is used quite often. ‘He is a very good cook.’ ‘He is very good athlete.’ Also, as you can see – the position of ‘very‘ comes after the indefinite article ‘a‘. Too ‘Too‘ is generally used to indicate something is very (!) negative. ‘It’s too cold out to play.’ ‘She’s too bossy.’ “He’s too strict.’ Of course, as languages have a mind of their own, we could also say: ‘He’s too funny!’ Here we should see, due to the context – that ‘too‘ is being used in a positive manner. So Well I don’t know about you, but it’s too soon to stop now. Although I’m so hungry, I’m quite happy to continue writing. After all, it’s very good practice for me too! "So" has many meanings and uses, but the one that is similar to "too" and very" is: "to this extent" or "this much" or "as much as it is. For example, if we want someone to speak less loudly, we say: "Don't speak so loudly." Here, "so loudly" means: "as loudly as you are speaking right now." (We do not use "too" or "very" in this situation, but we can use them in some other situations, as will be explained below.) Other examples: Don't hold it so high. I can't see it. Bring it down a bit. ("So high" = as high as you are holding it.) How could I have been so stupid! ("so stupid" = as stupid as I was at that time in the past.)
Modal verbs - Can and Could - English Grammar lesson
Modal verbs - Can and Could - English Grammar lesson : In this lesson Rachna explains the difference between 'could' and 'can' when expressing possibility? Most of the time it is clear from the context, but use of can can also express possibility (rather than ability). For example, giving advice answering the question: How can/could I improve my English? You can/could listen to the radio, watch TV and read the newspaper. Both are possible. Students want to know when to use 'could' and when to use 'can'. Similarly, How could I improve my English? is more a request for advice, whereas How can I improve my English?is more a factual question about available options. (But of course we can also answer this question by giving advice.) Can and could, like the other modal verbs, have developed quite a range of meanings and uses. You ask how to explain the difference, and explanation can certainly help, but learning all the ins and outs of these verbs is a long process which requires plenty of experience, observation and experiment. Watch this video lesson to understand when to use Can and Could. Enjoy!
Using ‘Used to’ and ‘would’ with Past actions – English Grammar lesson
Using ‘Used to’ and ‘would’ with Past actions – English Grammar lesson When we speak about past actions, we use ‘used to’ and ‘would’. At times, they are used interchangeably. In this lesson, you are going to learn the usage of ‘used to’ and ‘would’ with reference to the past. Used to: is used to speak about repeated actions in the past, that no longer happen in the present. Example: I used to play football every weekend. (‘would’ could be used in place of ‘used to’) Example: We did not use to watch TV. (‘would’ could be used in place of ‘used to’) It is also used for a past state/condition. Example: I used to be an engineer, but now I am a teacher. (‘would’ can’t be used in place of ‘used to’) Example: I used to like rock music, but now I like jazz. (‘would’ can’t be used in place of ‘used to’) Would: is used to speak about repeated actions in the past, that no longer happen in the present. Example: When I was young, I would play football. (‘used to’ can be used in place of ‘would’) Example: When I was in college, my mother would call me daily. (‘used to’ can be used in place of ‘would’) Note: ‘Would’ can’t be used to talk about a past state/condition. It can be used only to talk about past actions. Example: I would be an engineer, but now I am a teacher. (incorrect) Example: I would like rock music, but now I like jazz. (incorrect)

After a month's diet, his jeans became too loose for him . 2. His pet dog is on a loose. (break free) The use of a word is based upon its role in a sentence-how it is used in context. These three are just some of the words that are always used interchangeably without realizing/knowing it.The key is to identify the words function in a sentence and then find out which word fits the role.
07 reasons - Why your English speaking isn't improving - Spoken English tips
07 reasons - Why your English speaking isn't improving Do you feel like you're becoming better at speaking English? We at Let's Talk Institute often get emails from our subscribers saying something like this: "I need help. I've been studying English for a long time, but I don't feel like I'm improving. What do you suggest?" Here are some of the most common reasons that I think people "get stuck" and don't improve. Reason #1: You don't spend enough time on it. Improving your English ability requires a lot of time. To keep improving, you need to spend at least one hour every day practicing. If you have a busy life and only study on the weekend, it's going to take a very, very long time to become fluent. You've got to do it every day. Even spending ten minutes a day is better than nothing. Reason #2: You're too passive. When I was a kid, I used to think I could learn in my sleep. I read a book in which a character became a genius by listening to lessons while he slept. I thought that was a great method! Unfortunately, learning doesn't work that way. You don't learn much just by sitting back and passively absorbing language. You have to actively work on it. Speaking is one form of active learning. But there are ways to be active even if you don't have anyone to speak with: Try to guess how someone's going to finish a sentence. Remember new words that you hear and look up their meanings.Talk to yourself...and so on. Reason #3: You don't review. This is a big one. A lot of people don't review enough.When you review something before you've forgotten it, it sends a signal to your brain that says "This is important! Remember it!" So when you have a choice to learn something new or remember something that you've almost forgotten, go for the review! Reason #4: You rely on your native language too much. Explanations of English written in your native language can be fun to read. They allow you to easily understand things that would be too complicated to have explained for you in English.But a translation or an explanation in your native language only gives you knowledge about English. It doesn't give you practice. Imagine that you're trying to create strong connections between different pieces of English. Putting your native language in between them just gets in the way. Reason #5: You're focused on "mistakes". A lot of English learners want to know when they've made a mistake. The thinking goes that if you can fix all of the mistakes, what's left will be perfect.But here are some reasons why you shouldn't focus on mistakes:There are a lot more wrong ways to say something wrong than right ones.Focusing on mistakes makes you feel shy, which makes you speak less. Some of the mistakes people point out aren't really mistakes. Reason #6: You don't put things in context. When you learn a new word, the first thing you should find out is not "What does it mean?" but rather "When can I use it?" Context is super important. That's why every letstalkpodcast lesson starts by describing a situation. That's also why I suggest learning phrases rather than words: you need to know how words fit together with each other as well as what they mean. Reason #7: You're too advanced. When you first started learning English, you probably improved very quickly. That's because it's easy to learn the most common English words and grammatical structures. In fact, 75% of spoken English is made up of less than 400 words. As you improve, you start to move on to less common words and expressions. Unfortunately, there are a lot of them. Learning them all is a slow process.In other words, it's natural to feel like you're slowing down. That's a sign that you're really getting good!
The Past Perfect Tense (I had gone) - English Grammar lesson
The Past Perfect Tense (I had gone) - English Grammar lesson Generally there is a lot of confusion between using the simple past and the past perfect tense. The past perfect tense always has a verb in the past participle form that is followed by ‘had’. The past perfect tense is used when you want to say something happened before another past action. If two actions happened, the action that happened first comes in the past perfect, and the action that happened second, takes the simple past form. Example 01: When I reached the station, the train had started. (‘had started’ is the past perfect tense. This shows, first the train started and then I reached.) Example 02: Jane had read a lot before she went to the zoo. (‘had read’ is the past perfect to show that it happened first. Example 03: Before the installation of the new software, productivity had been low. Example 04: After I had had my dinner, I completed my work. (first I had eaten my dinner)

How to use articles 'a', 'an', and 'the' in English?  - Basic English Grammar lesson
How to use articles 'a', 'an', and 'the' in English? - Basic English Grammar lesson English articles ("a", "an", and "the") come before nouns. They help to communicate which thing you're talking about, similar to words like "this", "my", and "all". And they're confusing to a lot of English learners. Articles are really, really hard! If your native language doesn't use articles, they can be really confusing. The truth is, you might never completely master articles. Most non-native English speakers don't, even know if they're quite fluent and have spoken English for a very long time. That's mostly OK. Mistakes with articles don't usually get in the way of communication. Your listeners or readers will usually be able to figure out what you mean by guessing whether you meant "a thing" or "the thing". So while you should try to improve your skill with articles, you shouldn't worry much about them. This video lesson by Niharika will clear your basic doubts for using articles correctly.

How to use the verb 'Suggest' correctly? English Grammar Lesson ( ESL)
How to use thew verb 'Suggest' correctly? English Grammar Lesson ( ESL) It's a common problem that with English learners: a lot of people use the word "suggest" incorrectly. In this video lesson Niharika explains how you should use it. The thing to remember is that you suggest an idea, not the person that you're making your suggestion to. In other words, this is incorrect: I suggest you to apply for a job there. ( wrong) Instead, say one of these: I suggest applying for a job there. I suggest that you apply for a job there. You may also hear sentences that are similar to the last one, but without "that": I suggest you apply for a job there. In this sentence, it may seem like you're suggesting a person instead of an idea. But if you examine it more closely, you're suggesting the complete idea that "you apply for a job there": I suggest (you apply for a job there). One other thing to remember: don't use "to" after suggest: I suggest to apply for a job there. Here are some other examples which use "suggest" correctly: I would suggest waiting a few more weeks. He suggested I give you a call. Didn't you suggest bringing in a consulting firm? So do you suggest that we go forward with the surgery? Now that you know how to use "suggest", here's a bonus tip: the word "recommend" works exactly the same way!

Present Perfect tense (We have gone) and Simple past tense (we went) – English Grammar Lesson
The difference between Present Perfect tense (We have gone) and Simple past tense (we went) – English Grammar Lesson Take the quiz : http://www.learnex.in/present-perfect-tense-we-have-gone-vs-simple-past-tense-we-went/ In this lesson, you will learn the difference between the present perfect and simple past tense. Often, people get confused when to use the above sentence structures. The Present Perfect tense: is used to speak about an action is completed in the present time period. This structure is always linked to the present time period and cannot be used to speak about an action that was completed in the past. It is also used to speak about an action that has no specified time. The verb is in the past participle form. Example 01: I have watched three movies this week. (‘this week’ is the present week. Use the present perfect tense with terms like ‘today’ ‘this morning’ ‘this year/month’) Example 02: I have completed my graduation. (time not specified) Example 03: My uncle has gone to New York three times. (We use the present perfect because he exists in the present and so far he has gone to New York thrice) Example 04: I have lived in London for seven years. (I still live in London in the present, till date) Negative Sentences: Use ‘not’ in the negative. Example 01: I have not seen John today Example 02: I have never eaten Chinese food. (till date I haven’t eaten Chinese) Questions: Place ‘have/has’ before the subject: Example 01: Have you ever watched a horror film? Example 02: Have you read ‘the secret’? The Simple past tense: is used to talk about a action that was completed in the past. The verb is in the past form. Example 01: I watched three films last week. (last week is a past time frame and so we use the past form ‘watched’) Example 02: I lived in London for seven years. (we use the past ‘lived’ as I no longer live in London in the present) Example 03: I completed my graduation in 2013. Example 04: My uncle went to NY three times. (here we use ‘went’ because he no longer exists in the current) Negative sentences: Make negatives using ‘did not/didn't’ followed by a verb in the present form. Example 01: I didn't see John yesterday. ( not ‘didn't saw’) Example 02: I did not have pizza last night. Questions: Use did before the subject to make a question. Example 01: Did you read the news paper yesterday? Example 02: Did you call me last evening?

04 tips to handle Group Discussions effectively - Free English lessons The group discussion panel is testing to see whether you are able to present your point of view in a logical manner, if you are interested in listening to others viewpoints about the same subject and whether you are able to conduct yourself with grace in a group situation. Let’s look at 4 B’s which you could use to get through a group discussion in an impressive way: 1) Be yourself – Be yourself, be as natural as possible. Do not try to be someone you are not. In an attempt to be someone else, your opinions will not be portrayed. 2) Be a good communicator – Be confident, while speaking maintain eye contact with all participants. Also keep nodding when others speak, it shows receptivity. Facilitate contribution from others, allow others to speak too. 3) Be assertive – Be assertive, yet humble. You need to respect the other participants’ viewpoints and avoid aggressive hand movements in the event you disagree with a viewpoint. You should not interrupt another when speaking, but be patient and respectfully disagree if required. 4) Brownie Points: Earn some brownie points by impressing the evaluator. You could grab the opportunity to speak first, don’t shy away if you know the topic well. If you are not too familiar with the topic then the wise thing would be to wait and listen attentively to a couple of participants speak and then you could find an opportunity to speak and build on that. As much, as it important to speak, listening actively and attentively is also a great skill to use at a group discussion. You could also use quotes, facts/statements, everyday life examples to express a clear chain of thoughts,this could help you to score well too.
