Interview

In an interview, a journalist (interviewer)

asks a person (interviewee) questions about a topic.

The questions can be about:

  • the person
  • his/her work
  • his/her ideas and thoughts about something

 

The interviewee answers the questions.

 

Then the interview is published, written in a newspaper or broadcast

on radio, TV, or a website.
