What job do you want to do when you are older? (children’s texts)
There are a lot of interesting and useful professions. I am going to become
a teacher. I suppose my future profession to be one of the most important nowadays.
To teach and to bring up children is the most important and noble thing, to my mind. I am eager to get the proper education to be able to do my best to teach my future pupils my favourite subject. I'll try not only to help them to master it. I'll try to help them to become good and clever people, to be honest, kind and noble.
Children are our future and I want them to be really good and educated people. Of course, the profession of a teacher is not an easy one. It demands a lot of knowledge, a lot of tenderness of feeling and sometimes a lot of patience. But I hope, that I'll be a good teacher and that my pupils will like me and my subject.
There are many interesting and noble professions. I want to become a doctor.
I like this profession and I am eager to get a medical education and work at a hospital. It is a good tradition in our family. My mother is a doctor, and I want to be a doctor, too.
Day by day she takes care of her hospital patients, she treats them well. She is very attentive. Every day she comes into wards asking patients, "What do you complain of?" She wants all people to be able-bodied and she tries to treat her in-patients in a proper way. Sometimes she advises her in-patients to go to sanatoriums after leaving the hospital.
My mother tells me a lot of true stories about doctors, their profession, and their aid for people. I respect my mother. I like her profession and I have a dream to be a doctor too.
3. There are a lot of different trades and professions, and each one must choose the occupation in which he or she can best develop one's own talent and abilities. Our society needs well-educated people. Nowadays the profession of an economist has become one the most useful, modern and interesting.
An economist exercises different functions. He or she can determine the structure of an enterprise and calculate costs as well as probable profits. An economist analyses the condition of the market and prospects for its development in the future. His or her practical use of electronic computers is a must. The activities of an economist at an enterprise range from bookkeeper control the financial state of an enterprise and perform a lot of useful calculations. A manager is an actual administrator. Having a good command of the economic situation in the region and the demands of the market a person with an economist's diploma may establish his own business, or he may become a partner of a joint venture. It is very important for an economist to know a foreign language, especially English.
But to become a good economist one must work hard and get not only theoretical knowledge but also great practical skills
