    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at University of Victoria.

    Interview

    This was for a summer hire at the English Language Centre (ELC). Just a 3-4 week contract, only mornings. I was told to arrive 20 minutes before the interview, and was handed a piece of paper that said I had to come up with a lesson plan for one of two options: one was present perfect, one was conditionals, for a certain group of students and a certain level of English. I was told to prepare for a scenario so I wasn't expecting this exactly, which is why I'm sharing this to give others a heads up! (Maybe this is normal in the industry; I'm new to it)
    The first part of the interview was explaining how I would teach that lesson; not a demo, but explaining what you would do and why. Then they proceeded to questions. Some of the questions were quite wordy so I struggled to keep it straight what I was being asked (was also very nervous).
    The interviewers were pleasant or even kind. There were three of them, including a head teacher, director and associate director.
