When most people interview for a job they get very nervous.

Being nervous for an interview is

natural but if you're prepared you'll feel more confident and you'll be more likely to get the job.
Read the following tips on job interviewing and try them on your next job interview.

Before the Interview

Make a list of a few of your strong points that you want to emphasize in the interview. Think of
things that make you good at that job. For example, “I am a patient person” or “I have
experience in this kind of job.” These points are going to be things you need to remember to talk
about in the interview.

Get your clothes ready. Plan what you are going to wear. Make sure it is clean and ironed and the
shoes look good.

Call for directions to get to the place where the interview will be. Drive there a day or two before
the interview to make sure that you know how to get there.

Research the company. Look for information about the company on the Internet or talk to
people you know who work there. The more you know about the company, the more informed
you will be in the interview.

Practice interviewing. Have a friend pretend that he is the person who will interview you. Have
him ask you interview-type questions and practice answering them with confidence.

During the Interview

Arrive to the interview a few minutes early.

When you meet the interviewer (person who is interviewing you) make eye contact, smile, and
give them a firm handshake. It's important to make a good first impression. Most interviewers
make a judgment about you in the first five minutes. Make sure it's a good impression!

During the interview speak with confidence and sit up straight.

Make sure you talk about the strong points you put on the list you prepared before the
interview. Work them into the conversation in a natural way or use them to answer one of the
interview questions.

After the Interview

Thank the interviewer for the interview.

Go home and send them a thank you note and put it in the mail immediately.

My Wonderful Family (A1)

I live in a house near the mountains. I have two brothers and one sister, and I was born last. My
father teaches mathematics, and my mother is a nurse at a big hospital. My brothers are very
smart and work hard in school. My sister is a nervous girl, but she is very kind. My grandmother
also lives with us. She came from Italy when I was two years old. She has grown old, but she is
still very strong. She cooks the best food! My family is very important to me. We do lots of things
together. My brothers and I like to go on long walks in the mountains. My sister likes to cook
with my grandmother. On the weekends we all play board games together. We laugh and always
have a good time. I love my family very much.

Human body parts and organs

It goes without saying that humans (mammals identifiable as those that stand upright and are
comparatively advanced and capable of detailed thought) have pretty remarkable bodies, given
all that they've accomplished. (Furthermore, an especially intelligent human brain produced this
text!) To be sure, humans have overcome predators, disease, and all sorts of other obstacles
over thousands of years.

To fully understand and appreciate these accomplishments, let's take at some of the most well-
known parts of the human body!

The head, or the spherical body part that contains the brain and rests at the top of the human
body, has quite a few individual organs and body parts on it. (It should quickly be mentioned that
hair occupies the space on top of the head, and the ears, the organs responsible for hearing, are
located on either side of the head.) From top to bottom, the eyebrows, or horizontal strips of
hair that can be found above the eye, are the first components of the head. The eyes are below
them, and are round, orb-like organs that allow humans to see.

The eyes make way for the nose, or an external (sticking-out) organ that plays an important part
in the breathing and bacteria-elimination processes. Below that is the mouth, or a wide,
cavernous organ that chews food, removes bacteria, helps with breathing, and more. The mouth
contains teeth, or small, white-colored, pointed body parts used to chew food, and the tongue,
or a red-colored, boneless organ used to chew food and speak.

The neck is the long body part that connects the head to the chest (the muscular body part that
protects the heart and lungs), and the stomach, or the part of the body that contains food and
liquid-processing organs, comes below that.

The legs are the long, muscular body parts that allow humans to move from one spot to another
and perform a variety of actions. Each leg contains a thigh (a thick, especially muscular body part
used to perform strenuous motions; the upper part of the leg) and a calf (thinner, more flexible
body part that absorbs the shock associated with movement; the lower part of the leg). Feet can
be found at the bottom of legs, and each foot is comprised of five toes, or small appendages that
help balance.

Arms are long, powerful body parts that are located on either side of chest, below the
shoulders;arms are comprised of biceps (the thicker, more powerful upper portion), and
forearms (the thinner, more flexible lower portion). Hands, or small, gripping body parts used for
a tremendous number of actions, are at the end of arms. Each hand contains five fingers, or
small appendages used to grip objects.

The aforementioned shoulders are rounded body parts that aid arms' flexibility. One's back is
found on the opposite side of the stomach, and is a flat section of the body that contains
important muscles that're intended to protect the lungs and other internal organs, in addition to
helping humans perform certain motions and actions.
