This week we talked professions and debated the ups and downs of our jobs and the jobs of our dreams.
This week, learners can try an activity about Preparing for a Job Interview, How The Economic Crisis Made Me Change My Job, Talking About Work Conditions, or about Professional Babysitters.
For original version try the short film The Job or a David Sedaris radio story about working in a morgue.
Learners can read a text about responding to job ads or a fill in the balnks reading exercise about jobs.
For original version, try an article about a teenage undertaker or about an Egyptian man turning rubbish into gold.
This week for writing, please write a job application letter. This could either be a real letter if you're searching, or respond to this prompt:
You have seen the following job advertisement in your local youth centre. Send a letter to Mr. Johnson, the activity leader, saying why you are suitable for the job.
ACTIVITY CO-ORDINATOR WANTED! (Weekends only)

Write your letter of application in an appropriate style.
