Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB As the Athletic Director and head coach of the Varsity Soccer team at Ryerson University, Dr. Joseph is often asked what skills he is searching for as a recruiter: is it speed? Strength? Agility? In Dr. Joseph's TEDx Talk, he explores self confidence and how it is not just the most important skill in athletics, but in our lives. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Tell time in german Telling time is among the practical skills that one needs to learn when trying to get familiarized with a new country that uses a different language. If you found yourself in a German city such as Berlin or Munich, for example, you will have to know how to express yourself in German, should someone approach you. For instance, a fellow traveler or even a local might ask you for the time. Luckily, the numerical system is still very much used in these areas, but if you really want to blend in and show your effort in assimilating as much as possible into the local culture, it wouldn't hurt if you go the extra mile in learning the language. The phrase Ei ist usually precedes any declaration of time. This literally translates as "It is." Here's how you tell time in the German Language. 1. Just like most other people in the West, Germans tend to split the hour into halves and quarters. You rarely hear people give the time to the minute unless it's a very precise schedule such as a train trip or a flight. The German term for quarter of an hour is viertel while the term halb is used for half. To say "half past the hour", you say halb [the hour]. 2. Most people also use the "X minutes past the hour of Y" format as well when conversing in English. The Germans have a similar way of telling the time in this way. To express the number of minutes that have passed since a certain hour, one may say nach. To say that it's 2:10, one may say Ei ist zehn nach zwei, which means "It is ten past two." 3. The same applies for the expression of "quarter past". One can easily say viertel nach neun for "quarter past nine." 4. The inverse of the "past" is of course the reference to "before" the hour. To express this, you may use the term vor. Viertel von sechs for example means "quarter before six." 5. You may also use the German version of the English "o'clock". The Germans use the term uhr between the hour and the minutes to signify the demarcation and difference. 6. Most television stations would use the 24 hour military time format. Store and shop hours are also almost always posted in this format in windows and signs. 7. There's no going around this. To know how to tell the time in German, you should be good in counting in German - or at least from 1 to 59. Here's a list that can help you get familiarized with the numbers. One - Eins Two - Zwei Three - Drei Four - Fier Five - Funf Six - Sechs Seven - Sieben Eight - Acht Nine - Neun Ten - Zehn Eleven - Elf Twelve - Zwolf Thirteen - Dreizhen Fourteen -Vierzehn Fifteen - Funfzehn Sixteen - Sechzehn Seventeen - Siebzehn Eighteen - Achtzehn Nineteen - Neunzehn If you noticed, the format for the teens was simply adding zehn to the end of the first syllable of the number in excess of ten. For the twenties, the suffix - nundzwandzig (i.e. siebenundzwanzig, acthundzwanzig) is added to the end. Twenty is said as zwanzig. For the thirties, the suffix is unddreißig. Thirty is dreißig. For the forties, the suffix is undverzig. Forty is vierzig. Finally, the fifties have the suffix undfunfzig. Fifty is funfzig. It may be a mouthful now, but with enough practice and effort to tell time every time you get the chance to do so, you will surely find it getting progressively easier.

Become a personal esl trainer Teaching English to adults or younger students is one of the fastest-growing careers in the field of education. You can become a personal ESL trainer whether you currently are a certified teacher or not. Here's how to become a personal ESL trainer: Learn what you'll need to teach. Just because you can speak English doesn't mean you are ready to teach it to others. Remember, those you are teaching will be learning English later in life than you probably did. They will need more than simply your ability to hold a conversation in English. You'll need to be prepared to explain the parts of speech, how to conjugate verbs, and other language information you may not know as a native English speaker. Get training. Even if you have this information on the English language already, you may want to consider training to become a personal ESL trainer. Becoming a certified teacher brings opportunities to work within the school system, though you may not need this certification if you plan to work independently. Though no certification is required, you do need to be 'qualified' in other ways, such as having a good grasp of the English language and an awareness of the differences between other languages and the English language. Find clients. You may want to start with those who already have solid English knowledge, but want to work on their practical skills,before taking on any beginners who do not speak much English at all. Advertise as you would any small business. Many ESL students can be found around the country, particularly where large groups of immigrants reside. There are also opportunities for becoming a personal ESL trainer in a foreign country. Test your clients. You'll need to develop a test, at least oral, to determine your new client's approximate level of English comprehension. Ideally, test listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills individually. You will find that many clients come to you with solid overall knowledge of English, but are lacking in one or more of these areas. They may have knowledge of English from formal school settings, informal learning, or both. Be sure to ascertain what they hope to get out of their sessions with you, too. Focus on individuals. When you become a personal ESL trainer, you must focus on your client's individual needs, rather than trying to follow a standard training plan with every student. Being an ESL personal trainer is a lot like becoming a fitness trainer. Work on your client's weaknesses with targeted strategies while reinforcing strengths. Teach grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. These are the building blocks for learning any language. Learning correct pronunciation in a foreign language is a lot harder than many native speakers realize. Though these come naturally to many native English speakers, remember that your client has not lived in an English-speaking environment their whole lives. Practicing tongue-twisters is a good way to teach pronunciation. Use real-life teaching materials. Selecting appropriate lessons and materials for each student is a crucial factor in your student's success. There are books and worksheets designed particularly for ESL students, though real-life teaching materials are often the most effective. Depending on your client's goals, these can include ordering food at a restaurant, writing a business letter, listening to the radio or television, reading the newspaper, holding a conversation about a specific topic, or any number of other exercises. Plan for activities that focus on reading, listening, writing, and speaking. Hiring a personal ESL trainer allows your student to get personal, one-on-one instruction individually tailored to his or her needs and knowledge. It is your job as the personal ESL trainer to ensure that your client gets everything they can out of your lessons.
Write a standard resume
A well-written resume is your gateway to success. While a lot of aspects in your career depend on your day to day output, for you to have a shot at that career, you need to have a neat, precise and accurate resume. It is not an option to undersell or oversell yourself in resumes since both things can do harm to your long-term career. If you are just graduating from college or it would be your first time to write your own resume, then you need to read the steps below so that your resume will follow what is commonly expected and at the same time, showcase your talent and skills.
Materials that you will need:
clean sheet of paper
updated photograph of you (in full color)
pen and paper or your favorite word processing tool
Get yourself a modern resume template. Most word processing applications have built in resume templates that you can choose from. Choose one that best reflects your style while still adhering to the principles of good resume writing. The format should be easily readable, with font size set between 10 and 14. If you are not satisfied with how the templates look, you can alter their format and style further. Writing down the basic information – your contact details. Every resume is only as good as the contact information attached to it. All of your achievements will be useless if the recruitment arm cannot contact you. You need to place your complete and updated contact information on the upper portion of the resume for easy spotting. Make sure that the phone number is written in international format so that if your resume will be forwarded to international recruiters, they can easily contact you. Setting your goals and objectives for the job search. This section of the resume shows your goals and why you are applying for a job now. It can read, “a fresh college graduate seeking a challenging training experience in the field of industrial psychology” or something like this, “a passionate product manager looking for a competitive environment where he can use his 5 years of product and brand management experience.” This opening part of a resume sets the tone on how you can potentially fit the company’s family. A good technique is to slightly change the objectives section by looking at the job description of the spot you are applying for, and placing the keywords in your own goals description. Providing a summary of your work and educational background. As an added help to the resume reader, which can spell the difference between an interview appointment or your resume going straight to the trash bin, you can place a short enumeration of your past work experience and educational attainment. In this section, you need not say more than the duration of your stay in the school or company, covered dates and the name of the school or company, followed by your designation. Enumerating your work experience, starting with the most recent. You then need to enumerate in detail your work experiences, with your most recent work at the very top. Write your job title along with a brief description. Key points are the main accounts that you handle, who you report to, how many you are in the team and how you interface with the rest of the team. You can also place how you take part in decision making in the company, as well as achievements and awards that you received. A very useful tip is to include your salary range while you were still working and the reason why you left that group. This is very important so that your interviewer will already have a clear view of your work experience even before your interview.
When you have listed all of your job experiences and schools you have attended, list a couple of professional references and then proofread, print and send.
