What I Want to Be

Yesterday I was playing videogames in my room when I heard people screaming. I went out and saw: my neighbour’s house was on fire.

In less than 10 minutes the firemen arrived and fought against the fire for one hour until they made it. Wow! They are really brave! One of them entered the house and saved the Johnson’s dog that was trapped in the fire.

I made a decision: I want to be a firefighter when I grow up. I’ll be strong and brave enough to fight against the fire, to save people’s lives and property. I can’t wait! I can already see it in the newspaper: «Brave fireman rescues a family of four». My parents will be proud.

1. The boy’s house was on fire.

2. The boy thinks the firemen are brave.

3. He admires the firefighters.

4. It took long the firemen to arrive.

5. It took one hour to extinguish the fire.

6. The boy’s neighbours have got a pet.

7. A fireman saved the dog’s life.

8. The boy wants to be a firefighter when he grows up.

9. He wants to be as strong and brave as the firefighters.

6. Read the text in exercise 5 again and answer the questions:

What was the boy doing when the neighbours’ house caught fire? Did he want to be a fireman before that day?

Why did he decide to be a fireman in the future?

What qualities does he think are essential for being a fireman?

What can he already see in the newspaper?

Who do you think the newspaper title is referring to?

How does the boy think his mother will feel? Do you agree with him?

7. Write the answers to the following questions.

1. What’s your father’s job? What time does he start work?

2. What does your mother do for a living? What time does she finish work?

3. What would you like to be? Why?

4. Which jobs pay well in Ukraine? Give minimum three examples.

5. What outdoor jobs can you name? Would you like to do any of them?

6. Which job would you never want to do? Why?

8. Sort out the words from exercise 2 into three groups: a) jobs that people do inside; b) jobs that people do outside; c) jobs that people do both inside and outside.

Model: An accountant usually works inside. So this word goes to group a.

A carpenter can work in his workshop, but sometimes he works outside. So this word goes to group c.
