V. The speech model
Choosing a career is a troublesome problem because….
1. Choosing a job is very important because when you leave school you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. It’s not an easy task to make the right choice of a job.
2. Choosing a career is a troublesome problem because there are many worthy professions, but not of them are in demand now. I think, now in Russia in demand are professions connected with economics, computers, advertising business and tourism.
3. I think that one of the most difficult things is to plan one’s own future. But a person may suppose what he or she would like to do in the near future.
4. Choosing a career is a troublesome problem because life is quite difficult now, but I want to have an interesting job. I would like my work to be connected with different countries and people. I’d like to communicate with people at my work. I also hope to enter some high educational establishment and gain more knowledge and more friends.
5. Choosing a job is a troublesome problem because it is not an easy thing to choose a profession out of more than 3,000 existing in the world
6. Choosing a job is very important because it is very difficult to face the real world and I am scared what if I choose the wrong thing and feel regret a mistake in future? I realize that I should plan my life and explore my choice from every angle before jumping into the work world. There is one thing I know I wouldn’t like to be “a square peg in a round hole”.
VI. Work with the book

XI. Summing up
Summing it up I’d like to say many roads are open before you. The most important thing is to work well. The English proverb goes “He works best who knows his trade.” But it is a mistake to think that all your work is in future. Try to take an active part in life now. There are many proverbs to do with work. Have a look at proverbs and explain how you understand this or that proverb.
A bad workman blames his tools.
Плохой работник всегда винит свой инструмент
A careless or unskilled person blames his tools to excuse himself for bad work, while it is his own carelessness or lak of skill which is really to blame.
Jack if all trades master of done.
Джек на все руки мастер , а ни одним мастерством не владеет.
(За все браться ничего не делать)
A person who works at many trades never becomes really expert at any one of them. If is better to be really skilful at one trade than to have small knowledge of many.
