Lesson Plan Text

develop.

Do you have any questions for us? – No, you’ve told me everything that I need to 
know, thanks./ There are just one or two things./ Yes, I have 12 or 13 questions, 
actually. 

Ending the job interview

Do you have any other questions? – No, I don’t./ No, I think that’s covered 
everything, thanks./
 Yes./ There are a few more things actually. Firstly, could I ask…?

Thanks for coming all this way. – Thanks for giving me the opportunity to come here./ 
Thanks for inviting me./ Thanks for your time.

Can you find your own way out? – Actually, I have no idea where I am. Could you 
show me the way out?/ Of course./ Yes, I can.  

Practise responding to the things above, without the interviewee being able to see the 
worksheet. 

Do the same, but with the interviewer using different wording to that which is written 
above, e.g. “
Is there anything else that you would like to ask us?” instead of “Do you have 
any other questions?

Work together to think of other ways that things on the left that the interviewer says could 
be worded, e.g. “
Shall we take you to the lift?” for the last one. The sentences don’t need 
to have exactly the same meaning as the ones there, as long as they have the same 
function. 

Underline words above which could be used to make other suitable things for interviewers 
and interviewees to say, then make other sentences out of.

What other things might an interviewer say to you in an interview? How should you 
respond?

Roleplay a whole job interview, including any questions which are suitable.
