INTERVIEW   インタビュー、面接


  • An interview (noun) is a formal conversation where someone is asked questions in order to see if they are qualified (for example, for a job) or in order to get certain information (for example, for a news story).

    To interview (verb) someone (for example, a job applicant) is to ask them questions in an interview. To interview WITH someone (for example, an employer) is to answer questions in an interview.
  • interview (名詞)とは、例えば、仕事などに適任かどうかを見極めるため、あるいは、ニュース記事などで確かな情報を得るために質問を行う、公式な会話、つまり、面接、インタビューのことです。

    動詞として使う場合には、2通りあり、interview +人は、「~(人)に質問する」という意味です。例えば、interview a job applicant なら、「(採用面接で)志望者に質問する」という意味になります。一方、interview with +人 は、「(インタビューで)人に答える」という意味です。例えば interview with an employer で、「雇用主の質問に答える」という意味になります。
