“Choosing a profession is not an easy task.” – Discuss the problem.

Pupils work in groups of 4 and discuss this problem. After discussing the problem in groups, one representative from each one expresses their opinion giving proofs.

Group 1: It’s really difficult to choose a profession. There is a wide choice of professions. More than 2000 jobs and trades exist in the world. . It’s important not to make a mistake. Each job requires some special personal qualities, skills and responsibility. Your job should be enjoyable and rewarding. It must be in demand in present and in future.

But unfortunately not all professions are well-paid.

In pairs make the list of professions which are the best-paid and the worst-paid in your country.

What is the situation like in the European countries: Sweden, Spain, France and the UK?

While – listening stage

Listen to the text and answer the following questions:

1.What are the best-paid jobs?

2.Who receives the lowest pay?

3.Is there the difference in pay between men and women?

4.What are the major differences between four countries?

Woman : Hello and welcome to Jobwatch. A survey by the European Union of salaries in four member countries was published yesterday. This is the first major study since 1978 and it looks at salaries in Sweden, Spain, France and the United Kingdom. Data about other member countries will be available shortly.

The best-paid jobs in all of the four countries are those held by managers, basically those people holding positions of responsibility in business. Managers on average earn a lot more than the next group , professionals. Professionals include doctors, lawyers and teachers.

The lowest pay is received by workers in hotels and restaurants, especially in the United Kingdom. After that come manual workers in agriculture, construction, etc. The next worst-paid group of workers are those who operate machinery or work in factories.

One important finding is that there is still a big difference in pay between men and women. Women receive between 13 and 25% less than men, for doing exactly the same jobs. Women managers do particularly badly , receiving only two thirds of the pay of their male colleagues. Younger women and women in low-paid jobs are closer to being equal to men.

There are also major differences between the four countries. Sweden has the highest average earnings but French managers and professionals earn more than in the other three countries. The lowest wages are in Spain, followed by the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom is the country with the biggest pay gap between men and women. France is the country with the biggest difference between high- and low-paid workers.

5. Speaking.

T: Imagine you are adults and do different jobs. You are representatives of different professions. You are flying in a balloon over the sea. And the balloon is slowly drifting towards the sea. It can carry only one person whose profession is the most important.. Others have to jump out of the balloon. So just one can survive. You must persuade that your profession is more important than others.’ The rest of the class must save all the people proving the importance of all professions.

8 pupils in turn tell about the importance of their jobs ( they tell about the professions of a doctor , a teacher, a lawyer a computer programmist, a psychologist , a scientist, a farmer). The rest of the class discuss the problem how to save all people in the balloon , they prove that all professions are important.

III. Summing-up.

We’ve spoken a lot about different professions. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Students tell about what they want to be in future.

S1: I want to be a fire fighter because I want to save people’s lives. Firefighters have to be brave and strong as their work is dangerous. I work out twice a week at the gym because I want to be ready to pass the entry test.

S2: I want to be a teacher to teach and bring up children. The profession of a teacher is noble and important. A teacher gives knowledge, develops pupils’ intellect, forms their views and characters, their attitudes to life and other people.

S3: I want to become a journalist. This profession is very dynamic; you can always find something new. You meet different interesting people – actors, singers, sportsmen, artists. It’s a great experience.

S4: The profession of a psychologist is very useful nowadays. They help people in difficult situations, in time of trouble. They help them to overcome and solve problems. They can give a good piece of advice. They help when you don’t find understanding in your family or at work when you feel unhappy. That’s why I want to be a psychologist.
