Planning a career — фонетический текст


-Well, Robert, have you made up your mind yet what you want to do when you leave college?

-Oh, Harry, surely he’s a bit young to decide on his career? He hasn’t even got to college yet.

-Not at all, Nora. It’s wisest to decide in good time. Look at me or example. I really wanted to be a sailor but now I spend my days sitting at a desk in a an office. Yes, it’s silly to train for the wrong job. And after all, Robert will be going to college soon.

-Now if I were a man, I’d be a farmer. To see the crops growing – that’s my idea of a good life.

-Yes, and to see the money rolling in is more important still.

-Well, that’s not the way I look at it Dad. It’s the job I care about, not the money.

-Maybe not, but you’ll learn to care about the money too, when you’ve got a family to keep.

-And of course Peter, well, he’s keen to be a racing motorist or else an explorer.

-Oh Peter’s not old enough to make up his mind about such things.

-Well, you haven’t answered my question yet, Robert. What would you like to do?

-Are you sure you don’t want to be a farmer, Robert? Or a market gardener?

-No, I’m sorry Mum, but I don’t want to at all. I’d rather be a civil engineer. I want to build roads and bridges.

-Not ships? Isn’t it better to be a shipbuilding engineer?

-Look here, is it my career we’re planning, or yours?


-All right, all right, there’s no need to loose your temper. But you’d better win that scholarship first.
