Speaker A: I think it’s a great thing for teenagers to have part-time jobs. When I was a teenager, I worked in my local shop on Saturdays and Sundays. It was difficult finding time to fit in all my schoolwork and socialising with friends, and sometimes I really didn’t want to go to work. Especially when I could have been having a lie in instead! But, in the end, I think it taught me about responsibility and good time management. These are important skills that people need to learn when they’re young, so that they can be successful adults.
Speaker B: I’m so lucky to have a job that I really enjoy. Lots of my friends ended up getting jobs that don’t really like, just because they get paid a lot of money. I work as a zookeeper, so I don’t get paid a lot, but when I wake up in the morning, I can’t wait to get into work and see all the animals. My favourite are the monkeys, they can be so funny! I love spending the day looking after them and seeing the silly things they do. I think that feeling is worth a lot more than money.
Speaker С: Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve always wanted to be a lawyer. Some people think it’s a boring job, but to me, the idea of helping people in need and seeing justice done has always seemed exciting. When I was at school, I studied extremely hard to achieve my goal. While my friends were hanging out around town and skateboarding, I was at home doing my homework. All the hard work has paid off though, now I’m studying law at university and next year I’ll hopefully start work at a local law firm. It’s everything I ever wanted.
Speaker D: My mum is a nurse at a hospital in the city. She works really long hours and often comes home late at night, or early in the morning. It’s hard for her because it’s a really stressful job. She has to look after lots of patients at the same time, not to mention dealing with their families. But she always makes sure that she’s happy and cheerful with the patients, so that they don’t get upset. I’m really proud of her for doing a job that helps people. One day I’d like to follow in her footsteps.
Speaker E: The best job I ever had was when I was twenty and I worked at the local cinema. It didn’t pay a lot, but I had so much fun there. I got on really well with the people I worked with, so going in to work every day was more like hanging out with friends than actually having a job. Also, I got to sit in the cinema and watch all the latest movies for free. It was easy, fun and I got to see all the big blockbusters! I only worked there for two years, but it was a blast.
Speaker F: I worked hard every day for over forty years. I was never late for work and I always did what my boss asked of me. I finally retired when I was 65, so now I don’t work at all anymore. I thought that I’d be happy not to have to work, but actually I was bored with nothing to do all day. So, I decided to start volunteering at a local homelessness charity. I give advice to young homeless people on how to get jobs and succeed in the workplace. It’s nice that all my years of experience are finally being used to help others.
