What are your general comments?

"Interviewers do not have to read file before they interview you. Both of mine did. First interview was brief because interviewer very quickly turned it over to me to ask questions. That was a bit of a surprise. Second interviewer was a very charming man who asked straightforward questions about my experiences and even tested my language skills. Overall a low stress and enjoyable day that lets you really gain insight into the school, its environment and the students that go there. " Report Response
