The passage is ok,tho some of the words I cant really pronounce them properly. Was prepared for writing tho(practise very hard for the past few days), but there is nothing abt writing, or if it involves maybe I am too lousy that they wan me to leave and gone case for me. The interviewer is nice and friendly.

It was in a room with groups of ppl having individuals interview, the translation is not that difficult coz I think everyone in the room are able to read them. Maybe you can ask you sis to help when she's done:) I finish my interview less than what was expected so I dunno much too. Just had oral passage and translation about in flight svc PA.

Passage and PA Translation

Postby Pretty_Peeps » Mon, 24 Mar 2008 5:28 pm

The passage is English i hope? And the on spot PA translation is from English to Chinese? Do hope there is no Chinese passage...

Oh I think there's most likely no chinese writing involved from reading all past postings. If forum accurate, singapore based crew only fly to shanghai that require Chinese... My 2 cents worth. So think positive gal!
U CAN MAKE IT!!!

They said by April 8 or 9 will call us if we are selected. If no call means not selected, no mails. Tt's all. I dun think tt is a hint that I will be called, just a normal information.
