Need Help In Your Video Introduction?
Whether you’re here coz you need some ideas on what to say on your intro or just chillin trying to find some inspiration for your next job hunting —whatever it may be, I know you’re up for something great.
Now, if you need a sample script for your ESL audio or video introduction, then you’re on the right page my friend.
I know what you’re thinking. I’ve been there. Trust me! Before you skip this part, you have to hear me out first. Actually, this isn’t my first post about ‘sample scripts of ESL video introduction’. It’s my second one. Why I made another one? It’s coz I noticed that my previous post went viral. Not even kidding!
I only posted two sample scripts on my older post, so now I thought of adding more to that. I’m not surprised why many people are browsing on my blogs these days. Pandemic is making our lives miserable, so now we’re busy searching for jobs and all those sort of things.
What You Should Consider Before Filming Your ESL Audio/Video Introduction
- -If a company requires you to make an intro that’s specific for young learners, that means you have to act jolly, speak in a level that a kid or beginner learner can understand. Use simple words ,not idioms. Do not take for granted the instruction that’s given to you. It may seem simple or not a big deal, but your ability to follow instructions can make or break your application.
- -If a company requires a professional intro wherein your students are adults, then make sure you submit an introduction that’s flawless. When I say flawless, it means no grammar and pronunciation slips. You have to act/look professional and sound convincing. I can’t express enough the importance of how you deliver your audio or video introduction.
- -If you’re asked to submit a 30-second or a 1-minute introduction, be sure to follow that. There is a reason why a company has a specified length of time for an intro, and it’s best to stick to the instruction rather than sorry.
- -Please do not use this line: ”What are you waiting for?”. This line is a turn-off. If you add this to your intro script, you’ll definitely sound like a broken record (coz it’s been used by so many teachers over and over again).
- -Record yourself and listen to it as many times as you can until your lines are perfectly delivered. The moment you don’t find yourself annoying when listening to the recording, then you know it’s perfect and ready to submit.
- -Your goal should be to CAPTIVATE whoever is listening or watching your ESL video introduction. You have to understand that, when you submit an intro to a company, it wouldn’t be their first time to receive an applicant’s introduction. Again, it isn’t their first time to see a video introduction from a job seeker or teacher like you. In that case, you aren’t special -so, you have to be different or at least appealing on your intro.
- -I strongly suggest that you add some greetings. Make it personalized that way your intro is catchy and genuine. For example, if you’re applying for a company that caters Koreans, then say ”Annyeong-haseyo”. If it’s Japanese, say ”Konnichiwa”. If it’s Chinese or Taiwanese, then say ”Ni Hao”. You can even add another word using their native language at the end part of your intro -like goodbye. So, what’s goodbye in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese? Well, if you google it, it’s Annyeong, Sayonara, Zàijiàn respectively.
- -When making an intro for young learners, I suggest starting with a short song that’s popular for kids. It’ll make your intro appealing this way. I think it’s cute and a bit funny to watch. You can also add simple questions like ”How about you?” or ”How are you?”. It may sound corny or too much but this really helps. If you can’t seem to pull it off, then try a different style. Be creative.
