MAN: You know (1) it’s dad’s birthday next month.

WOMAN: Great idea! Where do you want to have it? At a restaurant maybe, or here?
MAN: Well, if we have it here, he’ll see all the preparations. It won’t be a surprise. And a restaurant will be
pretty expensive, I mean for a lot of people.
WOMAN: Oh, that’s true. I know! We can have it at my place.
MAN: Are you sure? It’ll be a lot of work.
WOMAN: It’s okay. I’ll make the food. I like to cook.

th
, remember?

PART 6: READING
Pay attention to the underlined words/sentences from the text. They will help you
understand the answers.



JOBS FOR THE FUTURE
(1) The world of jobs is changing, and it will change more in the next ten years. If you are
graduating from college or just looking for a new job, you’ll need information about jobs.

The big change is in jobs in technology and computers. This area will increase in the next ten
years, because we will all be online – at home and at work. If you have a degree or certificate in
computer science, you won’t have a problem finding a good job. (2) If you like this area, but you
don’t have a degree, don’t worry. A lot of companies will employ high school graduates with
good grades, and then train them to be computer specialists “in-company.”

(3) If you like the idea of general office work, you might have some problems. Computers
already do a lot of the work of receptionists and assistants. (4) But there’s no problem with the
traditional jobs of plumbers, electricians, and carpenters. People will always need plumbers and
electricians when things go wrong in their homes! You’ll need to study for a certificate, but there
are a lot of courses available.

Finally, if you want to be a doctor or a teacher, you’re in luck. At the moment, fewer people are
taking these courses, but the number of jobs is the same. So, study hard, do well in school, and
you’ll be able to choose a job anywhere you want.


























PART 7: WRITING
