Peter: Why don’t you get a decent job for a change?

Dick: But I like my job.

Peter: Look, digging garden is not a job for a University graduate.

Dick:But the money’s not bad and there’s plenty of fresh air.

Peter:If I were you, I’d go on some kind of course – teaching, accountancy.

Dick:Accountancy? Anything but that. It’s too boring.

Peter:Come on, you really must think of the future. Why don’t you just write a few application froms?

Dick:I’ll tell you what. I’d really like to be a doctor.

Oral Test Performance of 10 Second-Year students

Student 1:

Good morning everyone. Today I’m in front of you to tell you something about roles of a woman. People said woman are...is heart of the world, so there’s no woman the world will not exist. In my opinion, woman is always play an important role in our life, especially in modern life. First, woman help and teach the children. Although the scientists can make a child from test-tubes, but I think the role of a woman can be replaced. Woman... A child is bad or good depend much on the way the mother teach you. If you are a bad mother, your children is not good. And if you are a good mother, your children may be good at other people. .... He will do... He will do his ... well. And the second, woman is always good at doing the housework. It’s difficult for men to do all things in his house. But I think it’s very easy for a woman to cook some meals, to sweep her house and to take ... of people in her family. ... She not only know how to do it but also know how to do it well. She makes her house more ... and neatly. She takes care of whole her family with good meals. And maybe there is a woman in the house, the house.... the family may be better. Third, in our society I think woman has the same position as men. She can do anything her husband can do. For example, go to university and her profession or and become independent. She shares money to improve her... her family life. She helps her husband with his work. She share all people in work and in .... with her husband. She ... she.... People often say that behind a successful man is a good woman. And I think it’s difficult for men to successful without having the help of his wife. These are the reasons why I said that women are always play an important role in our life, especially in modern life. Thank you for your listening.
