Thank you for your valuable information, I don't have depth knowledge about my communication skill, from year 2009 I am managing in UK with my communication skill in College and University, I don't know how to check my communication skill is professional or not. If you know any website for testing communication skill like that, Please guide me.
To be brutally honest with you, if your written communication in a professional context is anywhere near the quality of writing in your posts, then you need a lot of work on grammar and composition. If you can find any courses on basic English grammar and composition at a local university or college, then you should definitely take some.

Communication skills are vital in any role, and you need to be able to speak/write English clearly, as well as understand it.
With regard to interviews, you should expect to be asked questions about your skills and experience i.e. everything you have claimed to know about in your job application. Think about the questions you would ask to find out if somebody had the skills you claim to have, and then think about how you will answer those questions. If you don't have all the skills required for the new job, you need to be able to explain how you will bridge that gap if you get the job. Find out something about the company as well, because the recruiters will expect you to know something about them, and it will also help you to prepare some intelligent questions about their business/systems when they ask you "Do you have any questions for us?".
Finally, don't waste time learning scripted answers to specific questions. Be prepared to respond to a wide range of questions about your skills/experience, and listen to what the interviewers are asking - they may not be asking you the question you've prepared for. An interview should be a conversation between professionals who are trying to answer a simple question: are you the right person for this job?
