English level for Ryanair interview

Hello to everyone!
i got the license and Iím ready to start working in some airline!
the problem is my English level..i mean, I have tea level 4 but you know for the interview is different!

last month I went in Dublin for 2 weeks to improve my English and my level in the classroom was intermediate! The question is...in your opinion, is too risky to try a Ryanair interview only with intermediate level? Maybe they want people with upper intermediate and advanced..isnít?
thanks

Honestly? In theory, it would be very important and it is indeed, but from how you have written your message it does not seem your English is that bad. Even if you have a very heavy accent, it is not a problem as long as you can carry on a conversation and speak without too many breaks in between. At the end it is all up to you and how you feel. More so during the interview. And it might take 2 weeks or 6 months to get a call so try to use English as much as possible in your everyday life, and that means watching movies and series in English and reading if you can't afford to go an English speaking country.

And it's not only important for Ryanair. Just saying...

One more thing: if Ryanair like you but deem your English level not up to standard, they will tell you that in the email, ask you to work on it and give them a call again after six months.

Have you heard some of the local Dublin crew? they would struggle meeting that one.

İf I were you, I would study any time everywhere, this is not only about the Ryan air, maybe you don t have to be perfect but at least you should explain exactly what do you think. mostly, English not main language for people in the word. however English is the main language around the world. you can watch English movie, serial movie, aircraft investigation (especially national geographic) read about the aviation books. I m totally sure you will develop day by day then you feel ready for every interview.

Good Luck!!

Try it - best advice.
If itĎs enough theyĎll tell you, if not...well, then at least you know it and can work on it. BTW that local Doblin-Slang (sic) is definitely not English as far as I can tell

PS: Please stop using Ą!ď after every sentence...makes me kind of nervous reading that

Someone told me that Iím ready..someone told me to take more time to improve. The truth is that at the moment I canít say easily all what I think in my mind. But I have to find another way to explain something.
i would like to know which level they are interested in.
im not talking about TEA level. I mean general english..like elementary, pre intermediate, intermedieate, upper intermediate or advanced.

what do you think? I need to knows it before applying because I canít do the interview with this doubt.

thanks

As long as you're able to carry a conversation in English without too many breaks in between and grammatically correct, regardless of how heavy of an accent you have, you meet that requirement.
