Three teenage business people

Noa Mintz

Noa started a business when she was 8, holding art classes for children. Two years later, she began a party planning business for children. She thinks that went very well. She doesn’t think that because she was very young, the business wasn't exactly perfect. These days, she is sure that she knows what she's doing, as she has a business that finds staff to look after other people's children. She also pays someone to help her with the business.

Mikaila Ulmer

Mikaila has opened a company called Me and the Bees. It sells lemonade, which is made with local honey. The drink is sold in several shops in Mikaila's home town and online, and some of the money is given to nature groups that work with bees and other insects. Mikaila also shows children and their families how to get ideas to make money. She says, "I think I've got lots of good advice for them."

Jessie Chong

When Jessie was really young, her parents told her that she should find something that she loved doing. She's happy she did because she thinks everyone should love their work.

Would you like to be an astronaut?

You don't have to be Superman to fly in space. Many men and women from many different countries have done it. For example, the European Space Agency (ESA) now has 14 astronauts from 8 different countries.

The first thing is this - you need to be sure it's the job that you really want to do. It requires a lot of hard work and several years of study at university before astronaut training even begins. Most people start this between 27 and 37 years of age. Many astronauts also train to become pilots first.

Astronauts come from all over Europe and the world, and it's important that they can speak the same languages. They have to speak English, and they are given Russian lessons. Some also learn another language, for example, Japanese, as a number of astronauts are Japanese speakers.

If you are still at school and you'd like to be an astronaut when you're older, it’s not too early to start developing the skills you will need. Playing video games is a great thing to do, as it helps you to think quickly and clearly. This is what you will need to do when you travel in space.

Another good thing to do is sports, especially team sports. They make you fit, of course, but more importantly, they help you learn how to do things together with your colleagues. So, maybe planning a game of football for next weekend isn't a bad idea?

The first paragraph says that

  • lots of people can be an astronaut.
  • there are astronauts from all countries.
  • only 14 people from Europe have become astronauts.

The writer says

  • you need to be a pilot before you become an astronaut.
  • it is important to know that being an astronaut is right for you.
  • when you start training to be an astronaut, you must be between 27 and 37.

Which languages do ESA astronauts know how to speak after training?

  • English and Russian
  • English and Japanese
  • English, Japanese and Russian

Why can playing video games be useful if you want to be an astronaut?

  • There are many video games about space travel.
  • Video games can teach you to think fast.
  • Video games help you to understand how computers work.

How can sports help you to become an astronaut?

  • They help you to get fit.
  • They give you something to do in your free time.
  • They help you to work well with other people.

Read the passage and choose the correct word to fill in the blank.

The oldest university in the word

In other words, there has been one there almost 1,100 years. The University has had many famous international students the years including the great traveler, lbn Khadun. The University was started by a woman, Fatima al-Fihri, and a long history of teaching women and activities for women's education.

Lecturer Hisham Mahmoud believes this helps female students concentrate during their studies. Before joining Al Quaraouiyine, Dr. Mahmoud was a scientist, but he decided to his career and work in education. The University's students all do well. After finishing at the university, many students will continue their at universities in America and Europe.
