Vocabulary notes (text only) explain key vocabulary and phrases from the interview.

the best experience ever

Working with children has been my best experience ever.

Something that is the 'best ever' is the best in our life so far.  Notice the following:

  1. Summer abroad was my best experience ever!
  2. 24 hours on a bus in Sri Lanka was not exactly my best experience ever.

rehabilitation center

It's not really a rehabilitation center, but a center for disabled children.

A 'rehabilitation center' is a place people go to help them return to good health after an injury.  Notice the following:

  1. The city just built a new rehabilitation center.
  2. She spent a month at a rehabilitation center.

voluntary activities

It's the first time I did some voluntary activities.

We do 'voluntary activities' for no money.  Notice the following:

  1. I do voluntary activities on the weekend.
  2. She does voluntary activities at the rehabilitation enter.

be yourself

The instructors told me, "Just be yourself."

To 'be yourself' means to act naturally and not worry about what others think.  Notice the following:

  1. I just try to be myself.
  2. It's easier to be yourself than to act like someone else.

questioned myself

I always questioned myself before doing something.

When we 'question ourselves,' we think of reasons why we should or shouldn't do something.  Notice the following:

  1. I always question myself before I buy something.
  2. I should have questioned myself.
