BEC Sample Interview
Interlocutor: Good morning. My name is John Smith, and this is my colleague, Mary Clinton. And your names are Li Hua and Wang Wei?
Interlocutor: Thank you. Now, first of all, we'd like to know something about each of you. Mr. Li, can you tell me about yourself?
Li: My pleasure. As you know, my name is Li Hua. I'm from Jiangsu province. I'm now studying in Suzhou University. And I'm majoring in international trade there.
Interlocutor: Thank you. Mr Li. Now Mr. Wang, can you tell me about your ambitions?
Wang: Yes. I am now a student with Suzhou University majoring in business administration. I hope I can get my MBA and join a world-famous multinational company. And after I have had enough experience, I am going to start a company of my own.
Interlocutor: Thank you, Mr. Wang. And Mr. Li, could you tell me about your ambitions?
Li: A big question for me indeed. I've never thought about it, but I bet I'll work towards a CEO of a big multinational corporation. That's my goal in life. And that's why I am spending so much time on English, business English in particular.
Interlocutor: Mr. Li, you said you're spending a lot of time on business English. Do you think business English is difficult to learn?
Li: Not exactly, though it may be difficult at the initial stage. The thing is that you need to have some business knowledge before you start to learn business English.
Interlocutor: How about you, Mr. Wang? Is it difficult for you?
Wang: Not really. You know, I like English very much, and my major is business administration. So I have always found business English very interesting.
