Only say positive things about the country you are going to. Make it sound like it is flawless and perfect. Don't offend your interviewer by pointing out their country's faults, no matter how true they may be.

3. Can you explain what's your motivation for teaching?

You're going to need to dig deep for this one. Is it because you want to do something rewarding? Fulfilling? Make a difference? Maybe you feel a calling to teach abroad, and you can't ignore it.

4. Tell us why do you want to come to [insert country name here]?

Make sure you answer this interview question by saying positive things about the country you want to work in. Talk about people you know who have visited and loved the country, or your own previous trips to the country. Don't mention how it is a convenient place for you to use as a base to visit other countries.

5. Tell us how do you like to spend your free time?

Don't say that you like to spend it at bars getting drunk. A better answer would be to say that you are planning to spend your free time in [insert country name here] by visiting different places around the country and learning about its culture.

Tread lightly here and make it positive. Give a specific example from a previous job or teaching experience and how collaborating with higher management resulted in a better outcome.

Here, you can talk about how it is extremely important to be patient, and be sure to tell each and every student about how they can learn at their own pace without any judgement whatsoever.

The interviewer is wanting to find out not just about your experience, but that you know there is a difference between teaching adults and teaching traditional students. I suggest making this clear in your response.

9. Where do you see yourself in a few years as Online Teacher?

Another typical question is where you'll see yourself in the future. This is again one question that engages discussion and is used to further allow the respondents to open up about their hopes, dream, and expectations, and how they hope to manage those in the immediate future.

10. Tell us how would you describe your teaching style?

If they are looking for a ‘friendly, positive teacher', then say that you teach in a friendly, positive style. Also mention how you care about every student and will do whatever you can to help any student.
