First of all I’d like to say that Learning foreign languages is especially important nowadays.
Some people learn languages because they need them in their work, others travel abroad. Every year many people go to different countries as tourists or to work. They may not understand that countries language, therefore they have to know english, the language of international communication. Scientests, diplomats, politicions have to know english very well, because they need foreign language in their work. So, a modern and a cultural person must learn foreign languages. They are socially demanded, especially at the present time when the progress in science and technology has led to an explosion of knowledge.
english language is needed as the main means of information exchange of the people of our planet. Today english is the language of the world. It is the major international language of communication in such areas as science, technology, business and mass entertainment. It is also the major language of diplomacy and the universal language of International aviation, shipping and sports. Half of the world’s scientific literature is written in english. It is the language of literature, education, modern music, international tourism.
I’d like to finish by saying that english today is absolutely necessary for every educated person, so if to talk about myself I will study it very atentively in the future too.
The choice of the future profession is a very delicate topic. A young boy or girl has little knowledge about the world of grown-ups. But if you listen only to other people advices without considering your tastes, preferences, talents and character, it will be only you to be blamed for the wrong choice. It is so difficult to decide, and you should keep in mind that wrong choice will result in many problems both for you and your family.
Choosing a profession you should take into consideration many factors.
The first is your talents, gifts, abilities. If somebody is good at languages, likes reading and writing, writes poems or articles for the school newspaper, he can make a good journalist or writer. But if the person is good at science and mathematics but can`t connect few words his writer`s career is impossible. So you should think not only about pros of the future job but also about if you manage to do it well.
Moreover, it is necessary to realize the advantages and possible disadvantages of the profession you have chosen. The profession can be well-paid , can give you freedom to create and be very interesting, but it can at the same time require your traveling a lot, learning Chinese or working late. If these conditions are not acceptable for you, choose another profession. To my mind the worst situation – to be torn apart between your job and your nature. It seems to be better to choose something simpler, something that will not irritate you every day.
As for me, question of choosing the future profession perturbs me greatly. After long doubts I have decided to become a hotel administrator, my future plans include opening my own hotel, recreation company abroad or something like that, as I am good at languages, I like communicating with people from different countries, having various cultures. Why have I chosen exactly this occupation, not a translator or guide which are also connected with language knowing? Simply because I would like to access power, not be dependent and feeling inferior to others. So, personal freedom in one of the most important factors for me.
There is a time when you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. It happens differently. Some people start thinking about it very early. They usually choose one profession and try to study as hard as they can in order to get the speciality they’ve chosen. So these are the purposeful people. Other people begin to think about their future profession later, when they finish school. It’s understandable. Leaving school is the beginning of independent life, but isn’t it better to prepare for this life earlier?
A few years ago it was difficult for me to give a definite answer about my future profession. I wanted to be a computer programmer. I was becoming interested in computers every day more and more. I’ve studied informatics for a couple of years, and I was successful. There are a few reasons why being a computer programmer is a really good profession. Firstly, there are fyture prospects for this profession these days, in a modern world of technics. Also, I would earn a lot of money. I was thinking that there is no doubt about my future profession, but I was wrong. My doctor said that computer programming is harmful profession to eyes. He said that if I am going to do it for a long time my vision will get really bad. I couldn’t be a computer programmer so I had to think of another profession.
After a couple of years I became interested in the sea and especially in geography. It was like a new world for me. Since I was a little boy I have dreamed about working on the sea. I was dreaming about that kind of job because my city in Lithuania was a seaport and I enjoyed watching the ships coming and leaving the port. I started to study geography and sciences more in order to become a mate and maybe one day a captain of the ship. I’ve heard that mates earn a reasonable amount. Some of them become very rich. And besides I would like to work on the sea and travel around the world, so I will connect two things: profit and fun.
The profession is chosen. And now I have to study very hard. I’ve chosen not the easiest way, and I know that. But I will do my best. I will study as much as I have to and even more. I hope that I will finish school with high marks, enter university, graduate from it, and then I will have the speciality with which the doors will be open for me everywhere.
Some people can argue that becoming a mate isn’t the best choice. I respect everyone’s opinion. But sooner or later, everyone has to choose his future profession. And may your choice be right!
