Instructions for a Short Video about yourself The video must have two parts (or you can film two different videos) and must be no longer than 5 minutes in total. Part 1 In the first part we will ask you to talk about a topic of your choice. The objective is to have a more complete impression of yourself besides the information you give us on your application form. It is important to note that we don’t expect this to be formal in any way. It is for the purpose of getting to know you better. Just loosen up and talk away. The topic that you choose should be something that you feel comfortable talking about, that is interesting to you or that you feel passionate about. If you need help for your video, Joaquín Núñez –CII Teach Argentina Director- will be happy to send you some tips. Part 2 For the second part of the video (or second video) you should film yourself showing some personal skill that you think will be useful at the schools or at the immersion camps. If you can play a sport that is not played in Argentina (hurling, cricket, American football, etc) you should film yourself playing it or trying to teach us how to do it. If you can play a musical instrument or sing, we would be delighted to listen. If you do art of some kind, it would be great to get to know your work. If you are a good actor/actress, you could do a small performance for us. We would also love to see some dancing, storytelling, stand-up comedy, games (classes or demonstrations) and interesting presentations about your country’s history, culture, traditions or strange hobbies, etc. The idea is to see you in action, having some fun and showing us a little bit more about yourself. Useful tips • Loosen up! • Take this opportunity to explore your creative side, as this is the first of many opportunities that the CII Teach Argentina will invite you to do so. • You can film it as many times as you like before sending it, so don’t worry about not getting it the way you wanted the first time round. You can also film it in small parts and then paste them with a video editor. • We don’t expect you to be dressed formally for the video. • If you feel that we have left something out on the application form that you would like to tell us about, please do so. • Make sure you find the video interesting and enjoyable at the end.
