Student Book P.37

 

Read what four teenagers wrote about their plans and ambitions 10 years ago. Then answer the questions:

 

Name: Helen Carter                                                                                                                          Age: 17                                                                                                                                           Home : near York, England                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I lived on a farm in the North of England and  my ambition is to be a country vet. In other words, a vet who mostly looks after farm animals. Next year, I’m starting my A-level courses, which take two years. I’m going to do chemistry, physics and Mathematics. The following year, I’m going to apply to all the veterinary schools in England. I’m also interested in wild animals. In ten years’ time, I hope I’ll either be working on farm in the countryside here in England or in a safari in Africa.

 

Name: Lioyd Coleman                                                                                                                           Age: 17                                                                                                                                                   Home : Memphis, USA                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        My father is a lawyer and I want to work in the same area. When I leave school, I’m going to study law. I want to specialize in criminal law and become a courtroom lawyer. I like the idea of working in a courtroom and persuading a jury that my client is innocent. Law isn’t a subject at my school, but I’m going to apply to law school next year. In ten years’ time, I imagine I’ll be working as a lawyer and making a lot of money!

 

Name: Hussein Al-Mossawi                                                                                                                                        Age: 18                                                                                                                                             Home: Cairo, Egypt                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I’m leaving school at the end of this year and I’m going to university here in Cairo to study medicine. Eventually, I would like to be a heart surgeon like Magdi Yacoub, the famous Egyptian surgeon who works in England. In ten year’ time, I hope I’ll be working in a hospital- either here in Egypt or in another country.  

 

Name: Madeline Patrick                                                                                                                        Age: 16                                                                                                                                          Home: Sydney, Australia                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     I’m leaving school in two years’ time and I haven’t a clue what I want to study! I’m going to take a year off and travel round the world. I particularly want to visit Europe and the Middle East. Then I’ll come back to Australia and study something- maybe I’ll become a dentist, like my mother. I have absolutely no idea what I’ll be doing in ten years’ time.

 

Now answer the questions:

 

1- Who wanted a job that would allow them to work in the open air?

………………………………………………………………………

2- Who wanted to help sick people?

………………………………………………………………………

3- Who wanted to do something similar to one of his parents?

………………………………………………………………………

4- Who wanted to take some time off before deciding what to study?

………………………………………………………………………

5- Which of them had a clear idea of what they wanted to do?

………………………………………………………………………

6- Which of them didn’t have a clear idea of what they wanted to do?

………………………………………………………………………

 

Now read what three of the people wrote 10 years later. Which of the four wrote these words?

 

……………………

……………………

 

   I’m very amused now when I think about what I was planning to do when I was a teenager. Things went according to plan for about a week! When I left school, I was going to spend a year travelling, so I decided that the best way to do this was to become an airline flight attendant. I thought I would do that for about a year. Well, here I am, ten years later, and I’m still  a flight attendant ! in fact, I’m a chief flight attendant with our national airline, and I love every minute of it! And do you know what I plan to do next? I’m going to train to be a pilot!

Ten years ago, I had a very clear idea of what I wanted to do, but that was before I got the chance to travel. When I left school, instead of going to university, I decided to go to Europe when I reached Paris, I completely fell in love with the place and I stayed. I worked as an English teacher for a year, before going home and studying law. But what I really wanted to do was return to the Middle East. So now I’m back in Beirut and teaching  law at the university.

I remember what I wrote about my plans and it’s amazing how things can change! I was offered the chance to work in the famous Bronx Zoo in New York. When I got there, I fell in love with the city and have lived in New York ever since. I got married seven years ago and I’ve got two children, Sandy and Alex. In three years’ time, when Alex goes to elementary school, I’m going to apply to go to veterinary school again. It’s ten years later than I expected but- better late than never!
