Work
I work on Saturdays and in the school holidays. Saturdays are busy because that’s when everyone goes shopping. Our shop sells clothes and accessories for men, women and children. I work in the children’s department. I work during my summer holidays when I’m not at university. I like my job, but lots of people don’t like coming to see me because they hate dentists. My job is very difficult, but I like it because I love flying. I work in a hospital in the city centre. Related:  The Future

learnenglishteens.britishcouncil I have just started my placement as an English Language Assistant in the Parisian suburbs. I was struck by how rich a city Paris really is; the architecture of the buildings and the large amount of luxurious monuments, such as the ‘L’arc de Triomphe’ and ‘Notre Dame’ completely embody the city’s rich reputation. I was also very surprised at how different the suburbs are; in the UK, traditionally, the suburbs are the richest part of a city but here, it is the complete opposite. The schools that I teach in are located just outside of Paris and are not as wealthy as the ones found in the centre of the city. However, the pupils that I teach are so eager to learn my language. I found this a little different to the UK; I always enjoyed my language lessons at school but I cannot say that I had the same enthusiasm as these pupils. For my first lesson I brought in some postcards and souvenirs to show my pupils what my hometown is like in the UK.

If you've got the money ... | LearnEnglishTeens “If you’ve got the money ...” Now, you may or may not know that Jamie-T’s famous lyrics actually continue like this: “If you’ve got the money, I think it would be funny-oh-oh-oh, To take your girl and spend a bit of your cash for me” But it’s the first line alone that I’m really interested in; “If you’ve got the money”... Don’t get me wrong, I’m a strong believer that ‘money doesn’t buy happiness’ but I do think that it takes a huge weight off your shoulders and helps to provide a sense of peace and security, especially for the future. But the lyrics “if you’ve got the money” transport us into a dream world where money is no object and subconsciously force us to think of every single decadent thing we would do and buy... Yet, whilst a world with an abundance of money would be great, I can’t help but think that a world without money would be even better. However, the video really did make me think.

I have had many face-to-face job interviews before, and normally I don’t get particularly nervous. However, for a telephone interview, where I couldn’t see the interviewer, I was very apprehensive! My friends and family helped me prepare by asking me lots of questions before the interview. I was especially worried about being asked to do a maths question on the spot, because maths isn’t my strongest subject! My best interview was for my job at a café-bar at university. I like writing, and so filling in a long application form doesn’t bother me. In the future, my dream job is to work for a company I like, in a strong team of people, and to enjoy it!

The best job in the world | LearnEnglishTeens Once again the organisation which promotes Australia, Tourism Australia, is advertising the best job in the world. But this year, they have six jobs going, all for six months, with a great salary and extra spending money. If you think one of these is your dream job, you have to make a 30-second video explaining why you are the best person for the role. But – be warned. Thousands of people will be competing for each post. The job of 'outback adventurer' is for someone with a passion for outdoor life, and in the Northern Territory there are plenty of wide-open spaces. Like the idea of 200 days of sunshine every year? Another island job is as 'wildlife caretaker' on Kangaroo Island in South Australia. Maybe you are not quite so keen on the great outdoors and your talents are more journalistic. Are you a foodie? Finally, a fantastic job in Sydney.
