    Re: Eligible/Fitted/Apt/Qualified/Up to?

    As a Brit and mentor, but not a teacher, my thoughts are as follows:

    Do you think Mike is eligible for the job that you´ve just offered him?
    Whilst Mike might be qualified as a ladies hairdresser in the UK, he may find himself inelligible for an equivalent job in the Middle East, as males are not allowed inside many ladies hairdressing/beauty salons here.

    Do you think Mike is fit for/suited to/suitable for the job that you´ve just offered him?
    He appears to be light on experience in some critical areas.

    Do you think Cecil is apt/appropriate for the job that you´ve just offered him?
    He may have been trained in welding, but don't you think that he is, perhaps, just a little too effeminate to be apt/appropriate for working in a shipyard.

    Do you think Mike is qualified the job that you´ve just offered him?
    He may have a University degree, but it's in Music, not in Engineering

    Do you think Mike is up to the job that you´ve just offered him?
    He doesn't appear to have the "get up and go" that we need.

    Hope these few thoughts help - with apologies, in advance, to those concerned about "political correctness"!

    Regards
