  1. Organization moment.

  2. Warm up.

We discussed many interesting topics at our English lessons. We spoke about education in Kazakhstan, Great Britain and the USA. It is important to get knowledge and good education if you want to be successful in life. Youth is the time of taking decisions and making choice. Today we’ll talk about an important problem you’re going to face very soon. It’s the choice of your future profession.

What professions do you know? Let’s have a brainstorming.


What have you got? Read your list of professions.

  1. Presentation of the new words.

Today you will be able to learn more words denoting jobs and professions. See the video and remember the words.

A).(An animated song https://www.youtube.com “People in my town”)

B). Repeat after me:

firefighter car mechanic pilot postman police lifeguard nurse

judge chef [´ƪef] waiter actor astronaut go down

  1. Consolidation of the new words.

1). Try to use the new words in your speech. Answer the questions:

  1. Who fights with fires? – A fighter.

  2. Who mends cars and changes tires? – A car mechanic.

  3. Who helps people in the court? – A lawyer.

  4. Who asks what you want in cafes and restaurants? – a waiter.

  5. Who teaches children at school? – a teacher/

  6. Who plays on the stage? – an actor.

2). Well done. Now I want you to read and guess the riddles:

A person who cuts men’s hair, sometimes shaves them, and who usually works at the barber’s (A barber).

A person who works in a hospital and helps doctors to cure sick people

(a nurse).

A person who sells things and food for people (a shop assistant).

A person who writes interesting stories and novels (a writer).

A man or a woman who cooks meals (a chef, a cook).

3). You know many words denoting professions. Look through the words in the box and pick up synonyms:

lawyer programmer job secretary profession career architect occupation journalist model work

Job, profession, career, occupation and work are synonyms. Do you know the difference between them? Let’s look up in the dictionary:

A job is the work that a person does regularly in order to get money.

A profession is a job that needs special training, often a university education and brings a high social status.

An occupation is a job or profession.

A career is the series of jobs that people does in his or her life, usually in one and the same field.

A work is something a person does as a job to get money.

4). Phrasal verbs.

While listening to the song “People in my town” you heard the question “What is going down”? Can you translate it?

To go down is a phrasal verb which means «быть приемлемым для кого-то». So the question “What is going down you”? from the song means «Какая профессия подходит тебе»?

There are some more phrasal verbs for you to remember:

to look at – посмотреть на

to look for - искать

to look through – просмотреть, бегло прочитать

to look after – ухаживать, присматривать

to look up in – посмотреть, искать в каком-либо источнике (словаре, справочнике)

Translate the sentences into Russian:

  1. Don’t look at me so angrily!

  2. I am looking for my glasses and I can’t find them.

  3. Look through the newspaper. There are many interesting articles about people of different professions.

  4. Nurses look after sick people in hospitals. They help them.

  5. If you don’t know the word look it up in the dictionary.

5. Relaxation.

You have worked very well. It is time to relax. Let us listen to one more song about people’s jobs.

(An animated song https://www.youtube.comOccupation song”)
