Hello everyone!At the moment I am just studying Software engineer at university.I like it very much.

Hi there !
I'm a speech therapist in Romania. I enjoy treating people who have difficulty speaking. I work especially with children from 5 to 9-10 years old. Most of them either don't pronounce very well one or more sounds of language, either have troubles in writing or reading at school. I work with small groups of children and at the end of the activity all pupils receive homework which they have to do with their parents or grandparents. If they work after my advice and guidance, the progress won’t be late to appear in a relatively short time. I love working with children and seeing how their pronunciation get better and better every week.

Hi everyone. I'm in an internship so this is my first job. I'm a waitress at a restaurant in Vietnam. It's a buffet restaurant so it's really busy. But I have learnt many new things at there. I can practice speaking English with my foreign customers everyday. But a thing I don't like is I'm not comfortable with my shoes. I have to stand 8 hours per day, my feet have really hurt everyday. I asked to change other shoes but my manager didn't allow me to do. So I think this is the worst thing at the restaurant.

Hi! I am Ángel i am an actuary I have work for a health company for two years. I like my work because I can prove all benefits of our solutions through cost-benefit and cost-effective models, in addition to this, I love that my knowledge can help indirect to patient. In the other hand, I dislike the lack of planning in some projects because this causes delays or reprocesses.

Sometimes I like my job and sometimes I don’t ... it depends how things going on

My position as a machinist assistant and conductor of goods train as well as my work in general can be interesting but there are disadvantages here like in other one as well. On the one hand I like my position due to every my working shift is a journey, I drive on train from one city to another without being stuck in some office all day. Plus, this work is paid quite well. On the other hand, a shift is out of 12 hours can be at day as well as at night that making my job to be very hard and harmful the same time.

Hello!
Carolina said: "Only five more hours to go."
Could you tell me please, what does it mean?
And why five? If I am right in understanding they discussed that they planned to meet at about seven o'clock and at that moment it was quarter past seven.

Thanks in advance,
Marina

Hello!
Is the 6th sentence in the task 1 written correctly? I thought I can say Emily's friend or friend of Emily, not friend of Emily's.

Hello Dmevko,
The form "friend of Emily's" is quite correct. It's called a "double genitive" or "double possessive" and is the grammatically same as forms such as 'a friend of yours' or 'a friend of his".

"Emily's friend" and "a friend of Emily" are also quite correct. Note that if you use a pronoun then the possessive is always used, so we say "a friend of mine" and "a friend of his" but not "a friend of me" or "a friend of him".
