Descripción

DESCRIPTION: 

This is a project to be carried out during the course of English VI, at the Universidad Icesi. It prepares the students for a job interview in English while at the same time increasing their exposure to the four English language skills. 

The importance of preparing the students for a job interview in English cannot be overemphasized, since they will not only be interviewed several times in their lifetime, but they will also be in administrative positions in which they will have to interview job applicants in the companies where they work. In addition to this, the project offers an effective way to improve their competence in the English language.


Objetivos

OBJECTIVE: To have the students carry out an authentic, real-life task, that exercises the four language skills in English: reading, writing, listening, speaking and prepares them for a job interview in English. After rehearsing answers to typical job interview questions, students in groups produce a video in which they enact the interview.

Sesión 1

Propósito

You can learn how to improve your performance in job interviews, both as an interviewee and as an interviewer. The exercises in the following sessions attempt to do just that and to offer you evidence of your progress. To verify your progress and the effectiveness of the task you will work on, the first step requires that you write down spontaneous answers to typical questions that come up in this type of interviews. This enables you to compare them with your own answers at the end of the task. Your progress will then become evident.

Actividad Docente

The teacher motivates the students to share their videos and promotes feedback and interaction with the whole group. Rather than criticize performance during the interview itself, the teacher should emphasize the importance of participating in the production process of a video in English, about an authentic and real life situation. The teacher should also encourage the students to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses while enacting the interview.

 

Actividad Estudiante

Students observe their own performance and ask for and provide feedback from and to their classmates.

Reflection on this observation and feedback will help you measure and verify any improvement in your ability to satisfactorily carry out an interview.


Evaluación

Progress is measured by having the students write down their answers to typical job interview questions at the end of the project and comparing them with their initial answers.

The video returned by the students becomes the final assessment tool.

Here is the suggested quantitative evaluation for the entire task:
Practice with a partner with each of the seven questions proposed during the task amounts to 10% of the final grade, for a total of 70%.

Production of and participation in the video where two students interview and are interviewed by two students, corresponds to the other 30% of the task.
