The result of the interview test is as follows;

SHORT SPEECH-----------------------21/30

INTERACTION-------------------------21/30

GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY----------10/20

PRONUNCIATION----------------------12/20

TOTAL : 64/100

What is disappointing is my low GRAMMAR and VOCABULARY score. It's because when I'm so nervous, I can't be careful about these things. This means I still can't speak with perfect English grammar naturally, which I still have to keep working on.

The topic I chose was something like " whether online advertisements are effective or not". Yes, this question is very easy to answer.

My speech was something like this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think it's very effective due to following 2 reasons:

First, online advertisement can be exposed to a lot of people, which contributes to the sales.

Including me, we always tend to do net surfing, especially due to the prevalence of smart phones. Actually in my case, I often check my smart phone while commuting, and sometimes, I impulsively buy something online. I assume that this is the case to many people.

Secondly, online advertisement is very easy for users. When we buy something or get some services at brick and mortar, we really have to go to the place, which costs transportation fee and takes time. However, when it comes to online advertisements, in short, online shops or services, you can not only save these things most of the time, but also, the buying process is very easy.

For these reasons, I definitely believe that online advertisements are effective.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually when I said " Brick and mortar ", I fluffed:P

These below are questions. Actually there were 3 questions, but i forgot 1 of them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.What is the disadvantage of Online Advertisement?

A) There are a lot of scams online trying to steal your information. Actually I, myself, became a victim of that. My credit card number was stolen by someone. I didn't notice that until my credit company called and informed me about that.

They told me that, though I forgot the amount, their record showed that I had bought very expensive stud earrings or necklace, and this was not what I was likely to do. Anyway, this credit company saved me.

2.Is a lecture for elderly people about online shopping important ?

A) Absolutely yes. Actually my parents often use the internet for online shopping, but they used to be not so careful about scams and something like that. So, I told them to be careful. My brother also sometimes stops by them, updating their Fire wall, something like that.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Just to pass Eiken Grade 1, you don't need to use high level words.

Even though the content is kind of childish, you can pass it.

For this interview test, I bought this book, but it was useless.

Acually, it was because the speech examples are so immaculate that I think not many people can follow them.

Also this book didn't help me so much...
