Questions for Host Families

25. july 2013 at 7:12 |  11th Month
Hmm,

Ještě mě napadlo, že bych mohla napsat otázky, nebo spíš body, které jsem použila při interview s rodinama. Myslela jsem si, že by to někomu mohlo pomoc, při vymýšlení otázek či jen jako inspirace. Každý chceme vědět něco jiného a každý máme své priority. Omlouvám se za nenávaznost otázek, ale měla jsem popsaný papír úplně všude, vždycky když mě napadl nějaký bod, tak jsme ho někam připsala. Když jsme měla interview musela jsem hledat ty body po celém papíře. Takže promiťe předem. Tak si to nějak poskládejte.

Jenom nějaké záchytné body.

Doufám, že to někomu pomůže, protože mě otázky pomohly. Každý máme svou vlastní hlavu a určitě se dá toho vymyslet víc. Navíc, pokud tam ta chemie je, tak konverzace se rozeběhne úplně sama.

Moje rada je - NEBÁT SE a MLUVIT !! Hlavně se usmívat. Pokud něčemu nerozumíte, nebojte se s zeptat znovu, nebo aby vám slovíčko zopakovali. Američani jsou hodně trpělivé a hlavně vstřícní, takže se nebojte a ptejte se. Tady jsou nějaké omluv.

Sorry, I don't understand. Can you repeat please?
Can you speak slowly please?

Tyhle otázky jsem zkopírovala z naší facebook skupiny, takže se omluvám, jeste to někdo vezme osobně. Chtěla jsem se podělit takhle. Nevím, kolik lidí v naší skupině je, ale možná je dobře sdílet s ostatními. Třeba oni potom přispějí se svými otázkami.

Přeji hodně stěstí všem, kteří právě procházejí obdobím interview. Držím palce a nebojte se. Štěstí přeje připraveným.

Break a leg !
