Exercise 4 LISTENING 46

1 It’s a very interesting job because every day is different. I love animals and

helping animals is my job – so I’m really happy about that. I see a lot of cats

and dogs, but sometimes snakes and spiders too …

2 I work at a large school in London. There are about 900 students. My subject

is history. We’re studying ancient Rome at the moment …

3 I studied English at university, then I got a job with a magazine. It was a

magazine about cars. Boring! Then I saw a job advert for a newspaper in

London, so I applied – and I got the job! It’s much better – I love it.

4 I work in a hospital in Manchester. It’s hard work – I work very long hours –

but it’s interesting. There are sixty of us at the hospital – that includes all the

nurses. The best thing is helping the patients.

5 I studied chemistry at university. Now I work for a very large food company.

It’s great because at school, chemistry was my favourite subject, and now

I’m forty-five years old and I’m still doing chemistry every day!
