    The interview usually lasts up to 30 minutes and they ask you some questions about you and your task. I think the pre-interview task aims at testing your attitude towards teaching and how you would react if a student asks you certain questions. Interviews are usually between 3pm and 6pm Spain time. You are told during the interview if you have been accepted.
    Regards.

    The course providers want to know if you have a genuine interest in teaching, and if it seems that you have a good chance of getting through the course successfully.

    If you do have a genuine interest, then you have probably found out something about it, and can demonstrate this in the interview. If you know nothing at all about English or about what teaching might involve, then they will probably ask you, "So what makes you think you can become a teacher of English?"

    They will not expect you to be an expert on anything, so don't worry too much. And dont try to bullsh*t. If you don't know something, say so.
