Voice message from Ana from Mexico: How does Ana feel and why?
(Ana from Mexico feels disappointed, upset. She doesn’t feel well – because of her level of English)
I wrote to Ana and asked her for to tell us a bit more about her profession and which jobs has she applied for. She answered by email:
“I’m a manufacturing engineer and I have applied for these kind of jobs, such as a project engineer, process engineer and others jobs related to manufacturing.
I think I have not been accepted because the level of English they need is advanced, it is because global companies work with people around the world. It is required to talk about specifications of machines, materials, measures, tolerances, and more,especially over negotiations in money.”

I think her English is very, very good.
