    2. Empathy
    3. Resoluteness

  • Well-put, @MichaelCarey Nice to meet here in this course :D

  • Nice to meet you here @ReneHaseth Landscape photography interests me too whenever I explore a place

  • Street photography is my style too. Nice to meet you here @ElizabethHoskins

  • Hello everyone, I am Duc from Vietnam, an Asian country. I have taken photos for a while so i really want to learn its basics again to improve my photography skills set. It was great meeting you guys here :)

  • Hello everyone, I am Duc. Every time I have chances to explore new places, I am fascinated by its harmonious design, which took me here to learn with all of us. I don't know when but I would love to apply the theory of design elements and principles into opening my own store concept. In addition, it might be useful for me to take pictures of buildings, coffee...

    Hello everyone, we all know how crucial sleep is in our lives but due to screen time and other kinds of distractions, some of us hardly get the required amount of sleep nowadays. Therefore, I'm here to delve deeper into this scientific topic, which I can share helpful and practical tips to other people in the future

  • Agree

  • No matter where you live or work, being surrounded by like-minded and cheerful people certainly affects our well-being and positive energy every single day

  • In fact, I did enjoy the course more than I expected because it's just right for me.
    - To remind me a set of practical tools for example SWOT model, STAR method, elevator pitch and SMART goals and more
    - I am particularly keen on the topic of promoting our (personal) brand on the social media during the second week, which also provides some very helpful...

  • @JuliaUdalova thanks for sharing, I think we will learn more together by the end of this course. The basics definitely help! It was nice meeting you here

  • Yes, employability is also about the way we present our knowledge and skills set, personal qualities to potential employers

  • In my opinion, employability could be defined as work-readiness or job-readiness skills set (or the fundamentals of our job performance and workplace success)
    The following article is quite helpful in order to understand this term a bit more

    I agree with the given point that by looking at the big picture, a career can be one or many jobs (depending on our personal interests and opportunities) and more long-term.
    FYI:

  • For me, it will be the right combination of the expanding and episodic career style because I always want to keep my career options open and of course available at a specific stage. More importantly, I feel good with my choices and keep learning new things

  • Hello everyone, my name is Duc from Vietnam.
    Let's say im not happy about my current career at the moment therefore i would like to join the course in order to learn the basics again and get myself updated.
    I am particularly interested in the idea of building my personal brand and ways of communicating my core values.
    Happy learning to all of us :)

  • I can cook for a few people and am a good listener too.
    I would love to become more organised, better with money and time

  • In my opinion, our answers to these questions should be relevant and be able to convince the employers that these strengths can help us achieve important goals and results at work

  • I wanted to achieve quite the same thing as you @MariaClarke
    Sometime I got lost with my screen time and couldnt do what I should do in that moment

  • Hope you can get sth useful from this course @EmilyClark Nice to meet you here!

  • What I have learnt from these examples is that critical thinking is about providing more evidence and putting the issues into the wider picture
    I find the See Also section and particularly the Notes to editors in the article quite helpful

  • Greater than because we suppose with his first good impression and postive feeling towards him

  • I spent some days at the hospital to take care of my Mum.
    When I was small, i was a patient for one week after my surgery
    The fact is that the hospital is not comfortable as our homes so we need to do our best to keep fit in my opinion

  • To sum up quickly, the critical thinking model consists of 3 elements (applying in any order you want) which is to ask meaning questions:
    - Description
    What?
    Where?
    When?
    Who?
    - Analysis
    How?
    Why?
    What if?
    - Evaluation
    So what?
    What next?

  • I can put this concept simply: thinking CRITICALLY (the quality of your thoughts or what really matters in such cases) about issues, facts and evidence.
    The video did explain so well with concrete examples

  • I have to say there lots of practical tips from this video but let's learn more about the STAR method and then answer any interview questions with your own words and a positive body language

  • Hi, I am Duc from Vietnam. I join this course to help others learn how to use English in the contexts of hospitals and healthcare, which is very vital in emergency cases. I hope I can learn many new things by the end of this course. It's lovely meeting other participants from all over the world :)

  • Want to join again too. At least, I will finish the First Woman before the next run. Thank you again, both of you

  • @InekeFioole yes i should finish reading this book this year. Thank you for all of your comments :)

  • I think a person in a bad mood is hugely different from a bad-tempered one (it's more about behavior pattern)

  • The second video in See also section is super helpful in my opinion
    One takeaway she mentioned is good steady eye contact and good posture!
    After all, how we present ourselves during the interview can show how much efforts we put into the preparation step

    Her word choices are so wonderful that i can understand more about the plot, characterisation and want to read this book. Thank you for this compelling interview

  • And Mr Holmes is very popular in our times from books to screen but still quite mysterious maybe all the time

  • I like characters who have both good and bad sides. It's a bit contrasting but they seems to represent us human beings more accurate :)

  • Spot on @maddien It's sometimes really challenging to choose one from your list I think. Because we have so many things we like about one character: their journeys, their thoughts, their quotes, their actions and so on.
    In certain cases, I cannot explain why I liked them from the first place :')

  • That sounds very interesting to explore the perceptions of women with strong personalities in my opinion @NaomiFajilan

  • I have to say this is one of the most comprehensive cooking courses on the Futurelearn up to date.
    For me, the takeaways from this course are very handy and refreshing on the topic of healthy cooking. From now on I know what to buy and cook for myself and my loved ones in order to stay healthy
    Thank you very much for designing this wonderful course and your...

  • I think that's a great idea to use leftovers and learn something new @GodelieveA

  • I find a pouch or a magnetic strip somehow wonderful to store my knives
