Goal

Let’s start the lesson with some reading. You can read it on your own, or play the audio and follow along.

Once you have finished, you can go to the next step.


You will have a hard life!

Patricia: Son, I am so proud of you: You passed all your exams. And with such good marks! You can choose any career you want. What are you going to do?

Jared: Yes, well, it’s good that you ask. The truth is, I know exactly what I’m going to do. But you won’t like it.

Patricia: Why wouldn’t I like it? All I want is for you to be happy, Jared, you know that….

Jared: Okay, then I’ll tell you: I am going to be a bus driver.

Patricia: You mean as a temporary occupation, don’t you?

Jared: No, I mean forever. But first, I’m going to do a sabbatical, and then I’m going to take the exam to get my bus driving licence.  

Patricia:  I can’t believe what I’m hearing…. Why don’t you become a computer engineer, an architect, or a builder, anything but a bus driver? Do you realize you’ll have horrible shifts

This is insane … What about your friends, what are they going to study?

Jared: John is going to study fashion, he wants to be a clothes designer and Sophie is going to study marketing.

Patricia: See, normal choices. I’ll call them and get them to make you reconsider your choice.

Jared: You said you wanted me to be happy.

Patricia: But you’re not going to be happy as a bus driver, Jared. It’s going to be a lot harder than you imagine. Night shifts, long hours, complicated customers, you’ll have a hard life!

Jared:  Hahaha! I was just teasing you, Mom. Actually, I’m going to be a singer.

Patricia: what?…
