Jobs we'd like to do

Artur

I've always enjoyed playing computer games and I'd like to make them when I'm older. My cousin works in IT and makes cartoons and games so I asked him if I could go to work with him. I learned so much including how to draw a simple cartoon. But it was really tiring - all I wanted to do was relax at the end of the day, not play computer games! 

Mika

I love sport the most and want to teach it when I'm older. I'm good at basketball, but I need to work harder in rugby lessons so I can teach different sports. After school, I want to go to college and study sports science. After that, I want to help with after-school clubs and lessons. My uncle is a teacher so I plan to ask him if I can give drinks to the players at the American football club next week

Henri

I play a lot of musical instruments including the piano and guitar and would love to have a career in music. Last year, I received a prize for the best young musician in my town. I want to study music at university. I probably won't get work as a musician after school so I might have to get a job in a café or restaurant first. My dream is to be paid to play in a group and travel around the world.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Juan Sala - underwater scientist and film-maker!

When Juan Sala was young, he lived with his family just five minutes from a quiet beach in the south of Spain. He spent all day in his summer holidays swimming and snorkeling there. He loved watching television programs about underwater adventures in the evenings. Even then, he dreamed of filming and studying unusual fish and other interesting creatures under the sea. But he didn't actually begin to do that until he was in his twenties.

Juan describes a normal workday on his 45-meter boat: "I get up before everyone else. I have breakfast and jump in the sea as soon as I can. I usually work underwater three or four times a day. I collect and film anything that looks interesting."

"After that, I make notes about my work on my laptop and have a meal. After dinner, I'm usually so tired I immediately go to bed. My friends sometimes invite me to go to a party, but I'm always asleep by the time the fun starts."

"I work hard, but I don't need holidays. I have such fun every day! My friends often say that they would like to have a job like mine. They need to pay a lot of money to spend their holiday in interesting places, but they don't get the chance to see so many unusual creatures."

Juan is planning to do some underwater filming in the Queensmen Islands soon. "I've never visited those islands, but I know a lot about them," he says. "I've always wanted to go there. I'd like to study the strange plants and creatures that live underwater in that part of the world. It'll be a very exciting project!"
