Friendship is extremely important for every person because everyone needs communication and understanding.

As a proverb says, “Life without a friend is like death without a witness”.

1. Let’s talk about education. What can you tell me about studying at school?

Children in Belarus start going to school at the age of 6. They spend 4 years at primary school and 7 years at secondary school. At the age of 16, when pupils finish the 9th form, they can either leave school or continue their education for another two years.

Most schools in Belarus are secondary comprehensive but there are lyceums and gymnasiums, where pupils get more profound knowledge in various subjects.

Marks in Belarusian schools are given out of 10.

All schools have rules, such as to be neatly dressed, not to smoke or to avoid casual hair styles.

In general, pupils are satisfied with their school as they get good knowledge in all subjects.

There are always a lot of flowers, parents and guests are invited and everybody looks beautiful and excited.On the 31st of May there is also a festive parade outside the building. After exams parents organise a party for school-leavers with music and competitions.We also have a a very nice tradition called “Former pupil meeting” in our school. Еvery year former pupils come to school on the first Saturday of February to meet their teachers and school friends. There is always a very beautiful party at the Assembly Hall in the evening on that day.

2. Do you agree that schoolchildren must wear a school uniform? Why?

2. Does your school have any traditions?

Yes, it does, but they don’t differ from any other school traditions.

It’s a very difficult decision to choose the right job. Of course I want a profitable job but I also want to enjoy the profession in which I’ll be engaged. I want a creative job, no matter what the profession will be. Maybe I’ll become a specialist in business matters like my mother.

CHOOSING a CAREER

1. Let’s talk about your future career. What would you like to become? There are many interesting and useful professions and it is really not an easy task to choose the right one.

I began to think about my future profession at the age of 15. My favourite subjects at school were mathematics and English. My teachers encouraged me in my desire to become an economist. Now I know well what I’m going to do after leaving school. I opted for a career in business economics. I came to this decision little by little. It was my father who aroused my interest in that field. You see, he is a chief economist at a large plant and I often saw him work at home and discuss business matters with his colleagues. Later I got interested in the matter.

Economics is the science of making choices, which is based upon the facts of our everyday life. Economists study our everyday life and the system, which affects it. To become a good specialist in economic matters and business one must know many sciences, such as business economics, finance and credits, statistics, history of economic theory and philosophy, mathematics, as well as economic management, etc.

If I pass my entrance exams successfully and enter the University I’ll try to study to the best of my abilities to achieve my life’s ambition and to justify the hopes of my parents. I also hope that I’ll never regret my choice and get a well-paid and interesting job afterwards.

2. Does a person need to possess special qualities to become a good specialist in this or that particular field? Why? Yes, a person needs to possess special qualities to become a good specialist in every field because only qualified specialists are real professionals.

3. What questions will you ask your future employer at a job interview? What will be the working conditions? How much will you pay me? Are there any perspectives of advancement?

4. Give me some advice on how to behave at a job interview to create a positive impression on the employer. Show up for the job interview a little early. Being late is a bad first impression and can blow the job. Use your body language to convey your confidence. Speak professionally. Don’t ramble or use slang in your answers. Stay positive during the interview. Ask the interviewer some questions about the position and the company. Send a thank you note afterward. 

5. Some people think that it is necessary to have a good command of a foreign language to get a good job. Do you agree with this? It is very important for a specialist in business matters to speak at least one foreign language. It should better be English as it is the most popular language of international business communication. You’ll be able to follow business developments in the world by listening to radio and TV news, by reading newspapers or magazines, or by getting in contact with your business partners abroad.

SHOPPING

1. Let’s talk about shopping. Who does the shopping in your family? When we want to buy something, we go to a shop. There are many kinds of shops in every town or city, but most of them have a food supermarket, a department store, men’s and women’s clothing stores, grocery, a bakery and a butchery. 

I like to do my shopping at big department stores and supermarkets. They sell various goods under one roof and this is very convenient. A department store, for example, true to its name, is composed of many departments: readymade clothes, fabrics, shoes, sports goods, toys, china and glass, electric appliances, cosmetics, linen, curtains, cameras, records, etc. You can buy everything you like there. 

The things for sale are on the counters so that they can be easily seen. 

In a food supermarket we can also buy many different things at once: sausages, fish, sugar, macaroni, flour, cereals, and tea. At the butcher’s there is a wide choice of meat and poultry. At the bakery you buy brown and white bread, rolls, and biscuits.

The methods of shopping may vary. It may be a self-service shop where the customer goes from counter to counter selecting and putting into a basket what he wishes to buy. Then he takes the basket to the check-out counter, where the prices of the purchases are added up. If it is not a self-service shop, and most small shops are not, the shop-assistant helps the customer in finding what he wants. You pay money to the cashier and he gives you back the change.

My parents do most of the shopping in our family. They usually drive to the supermarket where they go to the grocery, greengrocery, meat and fish departments and buy all the food we need for our family. They usually do it once a week.

Shopping is also a chore for me. There is a small supermarket near our house so when my mum asks me I go there to buy bread or milk or something we’ve run out.

Sometimes shopping is a kind of pastime and even entertainment for me and my mother. We can spend hours walking from one shop to another in search of something special.

2. Do you like shopping? Why (not)? I like shopping because modern shopping centres do their best to prove to you that shopping may be fun. That’s why they tend to combine shopping and leisure. Besides a great variety of stores, shops and outlets one can find there theme parks with rides, amusements and games. If you are tired you can enjoy delicious food in a restaurant or just have a snack in a cafeteria or a café. 

3. What questions will you ask a shop assistant to help you to choose a purchase?  What goods can I purchase in you shop? Are there any discounted goods to buy there? Have you got a dress of my size?

4. What can you advise a person who wants to buy many things (clothes, foodstuffs, etc.) but has little time? To buy much in little time you should make a list of what you need and run through familiar stores.

5. Parents usually give pocket money to their children. How do you usually spend your pocket money? I usually spend them on something really tasty in my school canteen. But I usually go there only when I’m starving and could eat a horse.
