UNIT 1. THE WORLD OF OCCUPATIONS
1. Listen to the dialogue. Make up a similar one and then act it out with your classmate.
Richard: How did you get into modeling, Stacy?
Stacy: Well, when I graduated from drama school, I moved to Los Angeles to look for work as an actress. I went to auditions every day, but I never got any parts. And I finally ran out of money.
Richard: So, what did you do?
Stacy: I got a job as a waitress in a seafood restaurant. While I was working there, a customer offered me some work as a model. Within a few weeks, I was modeling full time.
Richard: Wow, what a lucky break!
Stacy: So, Richard, what did you do after you graduated?
Richard: Well, I majored in English literature in college …
Richard: … so when I graduated I tried to make my living as a writer.
Stacy: Oh! Really?
Richard: Yeah. See, I’ve written a novel and I’ve sent it to eight different publishers, but they all … huh … rejected it. Would you like to read it, Stacy? I have it right here with me.
Stacy: Well, I’d love to read it, Richard, but not right now. Ah, so do you have a job or anything?
Richard: Oh, yes. I’m in sales.
Richard: Actually, I’m a sales clerk in a hardware store. But when my novel sells, I know I’ll be a best-selling author and I’ll make lots of money … When we meet next time, everyone will be reading my novels…
Focus on Grammar Future Continuous
The last sentence of the previous exercise introduces a new tense form for you. It’s the Future Continuous tense form. We use this tense form to express:
1) Interrupted action in the future
We use the Future Continuous tense form to indicate that a longer action in the future will be interrupted by a shorter action in the future. Notice in the examples that the interruptions (marked in italics) are in the Present Simple, but not in the Future Simple.
• I will be watching TV when she arrives tonight.
• I will be waiting for you when your bus arrives.
• He will be studying at the library tonight, so he will not see Jennifer when she arrives.
The interruptions may also be mentioned by specific time.
• Tonight at 6 PM, I will be eating dinner.
I will be in the process of eating dinner.
• At midnight tonight, we will still be driving through the desert.
We will be in the process of driving through the desert.
In the Future Simple a specific time is used to show the time an action will begin or end. In the Future Continuous, a specific time interrupts the action.
2) parallel actions in the future
We use the Future Continuous to express the idea that two actions will be happening at the same time. That’s why we say that they are parallel.
• Tonight, they will be eating dinner, discussing their plans, and having a good time.
Note in the example below that the parallel time clause action (marked in italics) is in the Present Continuous, but not in the Future Continuous.
• While Ellen is reading, Tim will be watching television. In the negative form the negative particle not is placed after will.
• At midnight tonight, they will not (won’t) ___ be driving through the desert. In the interrogative form will is placed before the subject.
• Will they still be driving through the desert at midnight tonight?
2. Put the verbs in brackets in the Future Continuous tense form.
1. At this time next week I ___ (sit) in the plane on the way to New York to start my first job.
2. Don’t call me after 2 pm tomorrow. I ___ (work) with my friends on our test results.
3. If you want to see Liza tomorrow afternoon, you will have to go to the school. She ___ (take) a test all afternoon.
4. The mechanic ___ (repair) my car this Saturday. His mother-in-law is arriving on Friday.
5. While the plumber is fixing our water taps, I ___ (read) a newspaper in the kitchen.
3. Sort out the following personality adjectives under the correct headings.
ambitious, analytical, competitive, loud, sociable, affectionate, critical, confident, bossy, sneaky, athletic, manipulative, stubborn, selfish, generous, cooperative, sensitive, shy, talkative, independent
4. Put the verbs in brackets in the Future Continuous tense form.

5. Make the sentences in the previous exercise negative and interrogative.
6. Write a description of your character type. Use the words from exercise 3. You may add up more features of your own. Then write what occupations might be appropriate for you.
Model: I am quite ambitious, competitive, and critical. At the same time, I’m rather sociable and cooperative. But sometimes I can be a little stubborn and too loud.
I think I could make a good manager. The job of a flight attendant could also be suitable for me.
