I know the course is not going to be easy, but I'm going to work really hard. I hope I'll pass it, so wish me luck! "

I recently finished bartending course in Rome and I'm very excited at the moment, as I'm getting a full-time job in my uncle's bar next summer. "
C Natasha Wilkins is a 16-year-old schoolgirl from Scotland.
"I'd like to work as a doctor because I like helping sick people. It's not an easy job though, as doctors have to be hardworking and careful.

Text 2 Read the article about teleworking and match the topic sentences (A-D) to the paragraphs 1-4.
E On the other hand, teleworking has a few disadvantages. F In conclusion, I believe that teleworking will change the way we work in the future. G Teleworking is a fresh and new type of employment. H Working from home has many advantages.

The Pros and Cons of Teleworking
1 It allows people to work from home using their telephones, modems and computers and communicating with their employer and co-workers through the Internet. Teleworking can make the way we work easier and less stressful, in conclusion at the same time, it can cause several problems. 2 Firstly, it allows employees to work in the relaxed atmosphere of their homes. This means that they can plan their working day in a more productive and convenient way. Also, teleworking is less time-consuming. People do not need to commute to their jobs and, as a result, they have more time to work effectively. Finally, teleworking can have a positive effect on the environment. If people in large cities work from home and stop using cars and buses, there will be less traffic and therefore less pollution.
3 But, some employees find it difficult to concentrate at home. This problem actually makes their work harder and more stressful. What is more, people who work at home may feel lonely at times, because they are not involved in the everyday life of an office. This can lead to unhappiness and boredom. 4 F It may have a few disadvantages, but I believe it not only offers people the opportunity to work in a new and original way, but it benefits our environment too.
