B. MATERIAL DESCRIPTION:

Learning objective 1.1:


Education

a) Subjects
You can do/study these subjects at university but not always at school.
- Medicine (to become a doctor)
- Engineering (to become an engineer)
- Economics ( to become an economist0
- Business studies (to become a businessman/woman and go into business)
- Law (to become a lawyer)
- Architecture(to become an architecht)
- Psychology (to become a psychologist)
b) Studying at university

Some students go to university because they enjoy studying, others just want a
qualification (something that you get when you are successful in exam). First, however, you
have to get good grades in your final school exams to get a place at many universities. You
can then study for/do a degree (do a course at university). If you complete the course
successfully, you get your degree (also the word for a university qualification) and receive a
certificate (a document that shows you have completed a course successfully). In the UK,
most degree courses last (continue for) three years, although some take longer, e.g. medicine
or law.
Teachers at university are usually called lecturers, and most of the teaching is done
through lectures (the lecturer talks and the students listen). The most senior lecturers have the
tittle Professor. Students doing arts subjects, e.g. English or history, will spend time working
in the library and writing essay (short pieces of writing on a particular subject). Students
doing science degrees, e.g. physics or chemistry, will probably spend a lot of their time
working in a laboratory (infml lab).
c) Postgraduate degrees

When students are doing their first degree, they are called undergraduates. When they
complete their degree, they are graduates. Some graduates go on to do (do something in the
future) a Master’s,e.g. in the UK an MA (Master of Arts) or MSc (Master of Science). These
are called postgraduate degrees. The longest one is a PhD (Doctor of Phylosophy) when
students do research (make adetailed study of one particular subject) for at least three years.

Learning Objective 1.2:

Hotel de Rounge

The hotel is located near the louvre, Notre Dome and top department stores in the heart
(centre) of Paris. Hotel facilities include: room service (staff will bring food and drinks to the

satellite TV (TV with many channels from different countries), air conditioning, direct-dial
telephone, mini-bar (a small fridge), and personal safe (a box to keep money and valuable
items in). Bathroomcome with a bath or shower and hair dryer.

b) Staying in a hotel

Rooms are often available (you can find one) during the week, but many hotels are fully
booked (all the rooms are taken) at weekends or during the holidays, so you may need to
book a room in advance (arrange/plan to have a room; syn reserve). When you arrive, you
check in at a reception (say you have arrived and get your room key); at the end of your stay
(the period of time you spend in aplace), you check out (pay your bill and leave the hotel.

is magnificient (very good or very beautiful), but it’s always packed (very crowded)
with tourists in the summer.
- Sao Paulo is a lively place (full of life and activity), and there’s plenty (a lot) to do in

- St Petersburg has lots of historic monumets (important places built along time ago)
but the Hermitage Museum was the main attraction for me (something that makes
people come to a place or want to do a particular things).

Note: we use worth + noun/-ing to say that it is a good idea to do something or go


somewhere.

morning- I got a very angry person on the phone!

Computers can store (keep) large amounts of information, but when you’re working it
