Interview: in Spanish

Hello Spanish speakers,

Interviews are something we all have to go through, so I think it is very important I am able to carry out an interview in Spanish too. (In the future, I hope to work in a Spanish speaking country)

I am going to answer the below questions. I am going to improvise, so I expect to make many more mistakes than usual. So as usual, any tips you have for me would be much appreciated.

 

Cuentame sobre ti...

Que opinan tus compañeros sobre ti?
Qué has estado haciendo durante el último año para mejorar su conocimiento?
Qué prefieres, trabajar en equipo o trabajar solo?

Ok, me imagino que "Buenos días" es mas formal que "Buen día". "Buen día" se usa mas entre amigos?

Te adjunto este video para ayudarte a diferenciar los artículos indefinidos en español. El uso de "UN" o "UNA" lo marca el género de la palabra en español, algo dificil para los no nativos en españa jejej de todas formas muy bien trabajado Edmun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5VgzvuUnqc

Muy útil este video. Creo que lo que debo hacer es volver a visitar unos ejercicios de gramática que nos ensenan de los los artículos indefinidos.
