戒掉港式英語 面試增勝算

於多項調查中,香港人的整體英語水平於近年來都有下降的趨勢。雖然從來沒有調查針對求職者於應徵時的英語水平,但於一個那麼緊張的時刻還要使用對於應徵者們是外語的英語作答,一些平時不會犯的港式英語錯誤都會全部「衝口而出」。倘若遇上外籍主考官,緊張程度可能倍增,錯誤如發音、用詞、語法等可能令主考官對求職者的印象分大打折扣。

 

針對面試常見問題,香港公開大學教育及語文學院助理教授梁頌康博士教你正確英語答案傍身:

E:僱主

I:應徵者

 

E:What do you think about the 5-day working scheme?  

I: In my opinion, I think that the 5-day working scheme works well for most of us. 

     → In my opinion, the 5-day working scheme works well for most of us. 

     → I think that the 5-day working scheme works well for most of us. 

 

E:I don't like to work overtime.

I:I don't like to work overtime too. 

     → I don't like to work overtime either. 

 

E:Could you tell me the period in which you could start your work? 

I:I could start my work between July 5 to July 10. 

    → I could start my work between July 5 and July 10. 

    → I could start my work from July 5 to July 10. 

 

E:Can you tell me how many staff there were in your previous workplace? 

I:There were ten staffs in my previous workplace. 

    → There were ten staff in my previous workplace. 

    → There were ten staff members in my previous workplace.
