Matt: Mom, we talked about different jobs in class today, and I’m surprised about the jobs some of my friends want to do.
Mom: So Matt, what do you want to do?
Matt: You know I love cooking, so I’d like to work in a famous hotel or have my own restaurant one day.
Mom: Great idea. What job does Maria want to do?
Matt: She wants to work at the hospital. Her mum’s a nurse there, but she wants to take care of people’s teeth.
Mom: That’s a good job. Mateo wants to be an engineer, doesn’t he?
Matt: Not now, he wants to show tourists around different places in Spain.
Mom: Oh! And Emma?
Matt: She’s always helping her mom out. Remember, her mom’s got a clothes shop in town? And, she wants to do something in fashion and create new styles for people to wear.
Mom: She’ll be good at that. Does Amy still want to work in theatre?
Matt: Not right now. She told me she wants to write articles for the local newspaper first.
Mom: What about Harry? I heard he’s moving to Los Angeles next year.
Harry: Yes, he wants to be a big Hollywood star one day.
