英语电话面试或者一面的第一个英文问题很有可能是“introduce yourself”或者“give a brief introduction of the work you are doing/you did" ， 所以在参加面试之前不妨写一下怎么介绍自己，怎么介绍自己简历上写过的项目等，然后可以反复阅读然后自己说给自己听来做下事前准备。
听不懂不是什么大问题，不懂装懂才是问题。当听不懂面试官说什么的时候可以大胆的说“sorry, I didn't follow you, can you please repeat it”，这个不会降低面试官对你的印象，因为面试的一个很重要的部分是考察你的交流能力。而听不懂礼貌的让人重复也是个不错的交流能力。而且现实工作中由于要和不同英语口音的人交流，听不懂是很正常的，这个时候不能卡壳，不能面面相觑，不能不懂装懂，而是立刻礼貌的要求别人重复。这里强调的一点是一般工作中我们让人重复不太会总是说pardon，这个词比较急促，听起来不是特别礼貌。
尽量把每一句说的流利，但是句子和句子之间可以加停顿。比如用语气词uh，或者and, well等来表示你在斟酌怎么表达你要说的内容。比如“This part of improvement, uh... ..., I was one of the main contributors. And.... ... I've been driving it even further afterwards "。 这种停顿不但不会影响别人对你的英文的观感，反而会让人觉得你稳重。
