■ Write the headings of the table on the board. Check students' answers by asking individuals to list the phrases under the correct headings. Students can find the phrases in the texts to see them used in context and to check the meaning.

Exercise 10


■ Read through the instructions and example questions with the class. Elicit more yes/no questions from the students and write prompts on the board, e.g. Do you work with your hands/with animals/meet a lot of people? Are you paid a lot of money? Is your job dangerous? The class can ask up to twenty questions and can guess the job at any time. Tell students that if they do not know the word in English, they can describe what the person does or give the name of the job in LI and ask you for a translation.




1 made his living 2 offered a job, turned down the r^er/turned it down 3 found it impossible 4 grown :-amatically 5 close properly


■ In pairs, students make their own sentences using three or four of the remaining phrases from Exercise 7 (do well, get stuck, get the sack, try hard, become self-employed, provide inspiration). Monitor, helping with vocabulary if necessary and pointing out any errors for students to correct.

■ The pairs then form groups of four or six and read each other's sentences.

Exercise 9

■ Look at the vocabulary networks for do and make and the example items with the class. Check that students understand what to do.

■ Students complete the networks with the words from the text.

■ Check students' answers and write the two networks on the board.


do: your best, something about it, work, a job

make: somebody scared, a complaint, a (big) mistake, people

think, money

■ In pairs or small groups, students add more expressions to the networks. Check answers by asking students to add expressions to the networks on the board (examples are: do homework/a favour/housework and make trouble/a mess/a promise).


■ Students work individually, writing five to six sentences using some of the expressions in the network. Monitor and help students correct any errors.

■ Students then form pairs or small groups and read each other's sentences.

■ In turn, each student reads aloud one of their sentences to the class.


30 Dangerous Jobs----------


■ To talk about photos.

■ To practise using the vocabulary of jobs. « To practice raakwq reported statements.


This lesson deals with reported statements. We present the bask tense changes as well as the changes that certain time and place expressions undergo (such as here, now, last year, last month, yesterday, today, next year). We do not deal here with the issue of when we do and when we don't use backshift. However, teachers may warn students that we don't use backshift when what we report is still valid, i.e. the context/situation hasn't changed or when we believe in what we report, e.g. He claimed his job is as creative as an artist's means we believe in what we report; if our report is He claimed his job was ..., we signal that we don't necessarily share this opinion.

»■ Short of time: give some exercises for homework, e.g. Exercises 9 and 10.

>■ Plenty of time: do the Options.

»- 2 classes for this lesson: break after Exercise 4.

Before you start Exercise 1

■ Check that students have the vocabulary to identify the jobs (A fisherman, В police officer, С construction worker). In pairs or small groups, students discuss the questions about the photos.

■ The groups then feed back to the class.

Exercise 2

■ Students read through the Key Words and check the meaning in the Mini-dictionary. In pairs, students discuss which are the five most dangerous jobs and put them in order.

■ The pairs report back to the class and see what similarities and differences there are in their choice of five dangerous jobs and the order of them. Encourage students to explain their choice and give examples of dangerous situations for the jobs they have chosen.

■ Students turn to page 131 and check their list. As a class, students discuss whether any of the information surprises them.

О Exercise 3

■ Play the recording once for students to read and listen for general comprehension.

■ Then play the recording, two or three times if necessary, for students to listen and complete the interview.

■ Check students' answers by asking individuals to read aloud the sentences containing the missing words.

■ To practise giving advice for interviews.

■ To practise using the language of job interviews.

■ To practise asking polite questions.

■ To roleplay an interview situation.

Resource used

Cassette/CD. Troubleshooting

Some students may be less confident than others when roleplaying an interview for a job and may be helped by being given time to plan and privately rehearse their role(s).


This lesson focuses on interviews common in Britain, either for study or for work. Interviews are normally conducted in a formal, neutral style with questions being asked politely. Politeness is important when asking the interviewer to repeat or explain something. Students need to identify any differences in their own country.

The quote is by Katherine Whitehorn, a popular British journalist and writer in the 1970s/80s.

■ If students disagree about the answers, encourage them to argue their case, e.g. some students may feel that it is acceptable to take notes in some interviews but not in others.

Suggested answers

Students may decide that sentences 6, 8, 9 and 10 are things definitely not to do at an interview.


■ Elicit more advice from the class of what to do and what not to do before and during interviews.

Exercise 3

■ Students look at the photo of Oliver at his interview for a holiday job and discuss how well they think he is doing, giving their reasons.
