    Sorry, Fairylord would like to add additional questions for better understanding.


    How about, bachelor degree OR bachelor's degree?


    Does "B" and "b" make any different?

    Why are you referring to yourself in the third person?

    Yes, you're correct, or you could say "With a B.A. in" (or a B.S., if that's your degree.)

    Sir, I'm poor in english. Not really understand for the highlighted statements.

    Did you mean why I stated out like third person?

    If I would like to tell the interviewee that I have a bachelor's degree in property management, isn't it should be sound in that way?

    When you say "I" it's the first person.
    When you say "Fairylord" it's the third person.

    When you talk about yourself, it's more common to use "I."

    I was wondering - this is normal.
    Barb_D was wondering - this is not as common.

    Use "bachelor's degree."

    OR

    Use "B.A." or "B.S." depending on what your actual degree is.

    Thank you, Sir.

    I get what you meant. I presented in that way because I thought that was the polite way to talk with others.

    Is that a wrong English or just not common?


    Please advise in advance.

    Hmmm...may be I should open another thread for this subject. Hope Sir don't mind to give feedback in that new thread entitled "Fairylord" and "I", I am Fairylord.
