Okei muchas niñas me han preguntado, sobre una lista de preguntas que habían visto por ahí para las llamadas con las HF, se que la primera llamada da miedo, pero ustedes relájense y sean ustedes mismas/os, no se presionen, igual tengan en cuenta que su HF sabrá que ustedes pueden estar nerviosas/os y que el inglés es su segunda lengua, así que no tomarán muy en serio si tienen errores al hablar así que respiren y traten de no auto-sabotearse :)
Les comparto la lista de mi amiga INDI! :) Ella ganó el concurso en México a mejor video au-pair y es una niña linda, así que si tienen dudas, además de que pueden preguntarme a mi, pueden preguntarle a ella :) Ahora bien, dando click en su nombre van a su blog :)
