众所周知,香港高校面试环节难度大、淘汰率高,一些高考状元就是因为面试环节发挥不理想而被拒。因此,港校面试也被称为继高考之后的“第二大战役”,能否成功进入理想的香港高校,胜败在此一役。那么,香港高校面试环节主要考察学生哪些能力,考官更愿意听到考生什么样的观点,怎样表达更能打动考官呢?带着这些问题,北外港大面试培训班的老师与外教Bill进行了面对面的交流。Bill是一位资历丰富的港校面试官,有着多年港大面试培训实践教学经验。在交谈中,Bill就如何行之有效的备考,怎样表现能够赢得考官青睐等考生关心的问题道出了不少锦囊妙计。

 

以下为采访实录:

问题一:

Q: We know you have been such an experienced interviewer yourself, and also you have been teaching this kind of training courses for so many years, could you share some information with us, with the parents, and also the students? So the first question might be how do you normally organise your training courses?(您本人是一位经验非常丰富的面试官,同时也讲授港大面试培训课程多年,您能否和我们分享一下您的经验?首先,您是如何安排面试培训课程的?)

Bill:Usually what I do is to make sure students understand what the interviewer is trying to get at. In other words, what the interviewer is looking for? If you understand what the interviewer is looking for, it helps you figure out how to answer these questions.(我首先会确保学生明白面试官希望询问哪些问题。如果你能够明白考官会从哪些方面考察学生,那么你就会清楚如何得体的回答这些问题。)

So the interviewers are really trying to answer three questions: can you do the job, can you succeed my university; second, do you really want to go to my university or just any university? So you have to show your commitment to that school, and the third question is trying to answer are you a good fit? are you this kind of person who is going to interact well with other students here, and with the faculty, and with the classroom, and outside the classroom situation. That's the general framework. Then we start drilling down these very specific behaviours, such as how to be a member of a group, how to work with the others, how to build on ideas, how to get your own ideas out to, because you know students were shy, so you need to give them a little pushing in order to get the right ideas out. So those are some of the things I focus on. (面试官主要考察三方面的问题:第一,你是否胜任这项任务,你能否顺利完成大学学业;第二,你是否非常希望到我们这所大学学习,还是任何一所大学都可以?你应该展现出自己对所选学校的执着。第三,你是否是一位合格的候选人?你是否能够与老师、同学相处融洽,是否能够适应不同的环境?这就是基本的框架。接下来,我们通过具体练习不断精进大家的技能。例如,如何成为小组当中的一员,如何团队合作,如何构建观点,如何表述自己的意见。学生通常会比较害羞,所以老师需要鼓励、激发学生,让他们充分展现自己的观点。这些就是我们在课上关注的一些内容。)

I also place importance to let students know what kind of language to use, to support them, to draw out their colleagues, for example someone is not speaking, draw that person into conversation. So these are this kind of interpersonal skills I think are important for students so they can be successful in school and get the most out of that experience. (我同时也会让学生明白准确使用语言的重要性。如何表述,如何【在讨论中】帮助别人,如何【在讨论中】帮助小组成员脱离窘境。例如,某位成员一直很沉默,如何让他/她参与到讨论中来。这些属于人际交往的技能。我认为这些技能对学员而言非常重要。他们通过掌握这些技能,可以顺利完成学校生活,受益匪浅。)

Now aside from those, there are also questions interviewers are likely to ask students, such as what is your greatest weakness, which is a fun question, right? So we go through, again, what the interviewer is looking for, how to answer the question. Several things I tell students need to do, they need to take inventory of their skills and accomplishments, and to be willing to them a little story with each one of these things. So when the interviewer asks a question, the student can respond and say for example. The best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour. So the stories are very very important apart from the narrative.(除了前面提到的这些内容,学生们还应该整理一下自己这些年获得的成绩、训练的特长的清单,然后通过讲故事的方式呈现这些内容。当面试官提出一个问题,学生可以配以例证进行回答。了解过去,可以更好的预知未来。因此,你给面试官讲的这些故事是相当重要的。)

 

问题二:

Q:Ok, thank you, really a lot of information for students to digest. As for the HKU interview training, I'm sure they will learn more than the language skills here. And they can apply them in their real life scenario later. (谢谢!您给学生提供了非常多的有益信息。我们都知道,北外的港校面试培训不仅关注语言点,学员可以将培训课程学到的技能应用到日后的实际生活当中。)

Bill:Yeah, they are going to be going through interviews for their entire life. So I think this is a pretty nice programme because they really cover the basis and experiences in these areas.(的确。这些学生们日后会经历各种各样的面试。我觉得这个培训非常棒!因为培训内容涵盖了基本的面试技巧,也让学生们有机会实际体验面试流程。)

 

问题三:

Q:So you have been teaching this kind programme at Beijing Foreign Studies University for such a long time, how do you think, do you like this kind of job and what's the fun inside?(您执教北外港校面试培训已经多年,您是如何看待这份工作的?您喜欢这份工作吗?是什么让您坚持这么多年?)

Bill:The fun is when the kids start 'Oh, that's what I'm supposed to do' and then take notes. Then they start asking questions. And when they are asking questions, it's really great because I know they are really involved. And I like the questions they asked. Because it shows that they are really trying to focus on what it takes, what it means to be successful, so it’s fun. So in every class it is a little different, every class is full of personality, that also makes the training more interesting.(当听到学生说:“哇,原来我应该这样做”的时候,并且看到大家不停地做着笔记,这真的很有趣!接下来,学生们会提出各种各样的问题。我非常喜欢大家提问题,因为这意味着他们完全参与到了教学活动当中。我喜欢学生们提出的各种问题,因为这些问题可以帮助他们思考如何在面试中脱颖而出,如何取得成功。这些都非常有趣!每个班的学生都与众不同,多样的个性让培训充满了乐趣!)

 

问题四:

Q: Yeah, I can tell clearly that you really enjoy teaching this course. I understand that lots of students after receiving your training, they achieve a high score and a very good performance in the real interview of HKU. So at this time of this year, students are going to take their real interview, the test, the big moment, can you say something to them, the good wish, good luck?(听得出来,您非常喜欢这份工作,乐在其中!根据我们的统计,许多经过您培训的学生都在真实的港校面试中取得了上佳表现。今年的港校面试在即,同学们即将奔赴考场,您有什么祝福的话送给同学们吗?)

Bill:Yeah, the thing is if they can relax a little bit, and we talked a little about how to relax, they are going just to be fine because they are really well-prepared. In the interview, the interviewer is not trying to trick them, the interviewer is trying to want the student to succeed, and the HK interviewers are just like the other interviewers, they want these kids to succeed. So knowing that, you know, really I think, helps you when you are answering questions.

(只要大家能够适当放松,他们一定会取得优异成绩的,因为大家已经做了充分的准备。关于如何放松这一点,我们在课上也有提及。面试过程中,面试官不会故意刁难某人,港校的面试官和其他所有面试的考官都是一样的,他们都非常希望各位能够通过面试脱颖而出!他们希望这些孩子能够顺利前往港大就读!一旦知道了这一点,一定会有助于你在面试过程中合理的回应面试官提出的各种问题。)

 

问题五:

Q:So that means after they receive the proper training from us, and also being very confident in themselves, you are pretty sure that they can make a very good performance in their interview.(所以大家经过参加北外港校面试培训的专业训练,同时对自己充满信心,您认为大家一定会在面试中取得理想成绩的,是吗?)

Bill:I think generally speaking, that’s true. They should be able to do that.(的确是这样的,这些学生具备这个实力!)

 

结束语:

Q:Thank you so much for your time and once again thank you for your hard work.(非常感谢您接受我们的采访,再次感谢您在教学中的辛勤付出!)

Bill:My pleasure. I really enjoyed this.(很荣幸有机会参与到北外港校面试培训当中。我真的很喜欢和这些学生共同学习,并见证他们的成长!)
