Choosing a Career

   Let me introduce myself. My name is Masha, I have left school this year. It is my dream to become a student of the English department. I want to study English, German and maybe French.
   Knowledge of a foreign language opens a new world for us. If you know a foreign language, you can speak with foreigners and it is a way to better understanding. If you know a foreign language you can read books in the original, and it is a way to better understanding of other people's nature and culture.
   In our country children study different foreign languages. At school I took up English. I read stories by English, American and Australian writers. It has become my habit to read English books in adapted form every day. I learn poems and do a lot of grammar exercises.
   Now I know I must work hard to master English. Studying the English language under the guidance of the University teachers I want to learn much about the history of words, their origin and usage in ancient times. For example, the word «window» is made of two very old Anglo-Saxon words, such as «wind» and «eye». The word «window» means «the wind's eye». It tells us of the time when a window was only a hole in the wall, and the wind used to come through it.
   When I finish my studies, I'll begin teaching in a secondary school. I think I'll enjoy the work greatly. Teaching is a noble profession. In modern times all kinds of specialists need foreign languages in, their work — teachers, doctors, engineers and people in many other professions.
   If a specialist doesn't know a foreign language he can't use all the foreign books which he needs in his work. I want to teach my pupils to read English books in the original, so they won't depend on translations.
   I hope I' ve chosen the right profession.

Выбор профессии

   Позвольте представиться. Меня зовут Маша. Я закончила школу в этом году. Моя мечта — стать студенткой факультета английского языка. Я хочу изучать английский, немецкий и французский языки.
   Знание иностранного языка открывает нам новый мир. Если вы знаете иностранный язык, то можете разговаривать с иностранцами и это помогает лучше понимать друг друга. Бели вы знаете иностранный язык, вы можете читать книги в оригинале и это помогает лучше понять характер и культуру другого народа.
   В нашей стране дети изучают различные иностранные языки. В школе я изучала английский язык. Я читаю рассказы английских, американских, австралийских писателей. У меня вошло в привычку каждый день читать адаптированные книги на английском языке. Я учу стихотворения и делаю много грамматических упражнений.
   Я знаю сейчас, что я должна много работать, чтобы овладеть английским языком. Изучая английский язык под руководством преподавателей университета, я хочу многое узнать о происхождении слов и их употреблении в давние времена. Например, слово «окно» состоит их двух древних англо-саксонских слов, таких как «ветер» и «глаз». Слово «окно» означает «глаз ветра». Оно говорит о том времени, когда окном была дыра в стене, и через нее часто дул ветер.
   Когда я закончу учебу, я начну преподавать в общеобразовательной школе. Я думаю, что получу огромное удовольствие от работы. Учитель — это благородная профессия. В наше время всем специалистам надо знать иностранные языки — учителям, инженерам и людям других профессий.
   Если специалист не знает иностранный язык, он не может пользоваться всеми книгами на иностранном языке, которые ему нужны для работы. Я хочу научить моих учеников читать английские книги в оригинале, чтобы они не зависели от переводов.
   Я надеюсь, что сделала правильный выбор.

Lincoln was one of the most famous presidents of the USA. He was born in the family of a poor farmer in 1809 in Kentucky, but soon his family left for the wild forestland of Indiana.
