Video review of Week 1

David, our lead educator recorded a video this week and looked back at some interesting talking points from this week.

David starts by greeting course participants from all over the world, including one person on a ship in the Bearing Straits! He delivered a challenge, asking everyone to notice the verb forms he uses in his video. If you’d like to know more about David’s challenge, start by watching the video for more information. There’s a clue in the previous sentence : )

He mentions Iryna Mikhno’s comment on ways to improve your English then talks about a discussion with Esmat Afify and Ricardo A. VanEgas on whether or not to include a photo with your CV. You can read more on including a photo with your CV here.

David also refers to Phra Sirichai Thummachart’s question about covering letters and suggests what to include in your letter. Read more on covering letters here and here.

David finishes by recommending that anyone who couldn’t join the educators on Facebook live this week can watch the recording of the live broadcast on step 1.3.
