There is lots of WORK and WORKING vocabulary in English. In this lesson you will learn some of the main words we use to talk about this topic.
I am an English teacher. That is my job. I am not employed because I work for myself.
Is English teaching a job or a career? I think it we could call it a career.
The dictionary defines career as:
an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for progress.
So, there might not be a lot of opportunities for progress but it is an occupation that can last a while.
I am normally at work about 8 hours a day. Fortunately, I have been in work most of my adult life.
Both full-time and part-time work are common nowadays.
Most people I know work full-time. That means they work about 40 hours per week.
In other words, there workweek is 40 hours.
In the past
I worked part-time when I was younger. I worked evenings at a pizza restaurant while I was at university.
By working part-time I was able to pay off my studies. No student-loan debt for me.
I consider myself to be a hard worker. and I don’t think that I am over worked or under worked.
My workload is average and I my workplace is at home.
I used to work harder than I do now. A few years ago I would work like a dog, but now like to have more free time.
I have friends that are workaholics and they work until they drop. They work their asses off trying to get a promotion. Is it really worth it?
