T: Sure. And what is the best way to prepare for any job?

T: The first profession you came across from your childhood is the profession of a teacher. We don't realize the importance of it. Nevertheless when you come to the conclusion that you like communicate with children and teaching is your choice. The best way to know this profession better is to have a talk with a teacher. So we are going to do this just now.
St.1 you will be … and
St.2 will be…
Journalist: Good morning and welcome to our programme "Worldly Wise". Today our attention turns on teaching. Many young people consider teaching as a career. It's not surprising: after your parents the teacher may be the most important person in your life. With all the teachers you meet you think there isn't anything you don't know about the work. The teachers must be devoted to their work and privately think, though they may not like to admit is openly, that they serve humanity doing the most vital job of all. Susan Brown is a teacher of English in one of secondary London's schools found time to come and take part in our programme.
Get ready to ask questions, pupils.
T: Please to meet you friends.
St.1: Why have you chosen teaching as a career?
T: Well, as for me, I made my choice long ago. My choice of this occupation didn't come as a sudden flash. If you like people, you will like teacher you must be genuinely interested in what you are doing. The most important things in the world are awareness and learning - wanting to know every day of your life more and more. Because every time you learn something new you become something new. A teacher catalyzes in his pupils the burning desire to know and love the truth and beauty.
St.2: Who has influenced your choice of professional?
T: My parents, my English teacher and of course, my love of English. During all school years English was favorite subject.
St.3: Teaching is a very difficult job, it is not well paid. Besides most jobs can be done within the usual office hours from 9 to 5, but teacher's work is never done. As far as I know evening are mostly spent making exercise books and preparing for the next lesson. It is quite a stressful job and a bit boring to my mind.
T: Nothing of the kind speaking about boring. It's the most noble and rewarding job. Can you imagine your life without teachers, ah? Yes , that's impossible. There are of course two categories of teacher teachers who have a job and teachers who have a calling. There are teachers who can't wait for wait of the day to begin.
St.4: John Steinbeck once said a great teacher is a artist and you know how few great artists there are in the world. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts.
T: You are absolutely right. That's why humanity has the deepest respect for teachers. Teachers do not only teach their subjects, they develop their pupils intellect, from their views and characters, their altitudes to life and to other people. It's a great responsibility to bring up children. I think that's the reason why teachers are deeply respected.
St.5: What qualities do you think are necessary for a good teacher?
T: Oh, many of them. First of all a good teacher should know perfectly the subject he teaches, must be well-educated and well informed, because an ignorant teacher teaches ignorance, a bored teacher teaches boredom. Teachers should be understanding and patient, must be kind. A teacher must love children and respect them.
St.6: I am fond of English. But I think that teaching is hot for me. Which of professions require the knowledge of foreign language?
T: there are a lot of professions for which a good knowledge of a foreign language is absolutely necessary, but I must say that many of them deal with people, for example: an interpreter, a translator, a diplomat, a journalist as well.
Journalist: Time of our programme comes to end. Thank you…. for coming.
T: Summing it up I'd like to say" Many roads are open before you. The most important thing is to work well. The English proverb goes " He works best who knows his trade". But it is a mistake to think that all your work is in future. Try to take an active part in life how. Good luck to you. Thank you.
