Job Stories

Classes 3A and 3P recently wrote about their current or past jobs. Read an example below from a Class 3A student and take the quiz afterwards to test your comprehension:

My Current Job

Cecilia Amaya

I am a home health aide. I work for Premier Home Health Care. I am a person who likes to help others. I enjoy spending my time with people who need my help. My patient is a nice person; every day he is waiting for me happy with a smile when he sees me. He just speaks Italian and English, so I try to practice my English with him. It’s funny because he corrects me every time I don’t pronounce a word correctly. His family is nice to me. I feel like one of their relatives.

I enjoy my job and enjoy practicing my English with my patient. But the first day I felt nervous because I didn’t know who my patient was. But days later, I felt better because he is a good guy. Some days we play bingo and sometimes he talks to me about his life. When he was a child he lived in Pennsylvania with his parents and eight siblings.

We also do exercise and watch TV shows and TV news in English. When he feels sad, we look at photos and he tells me about many trips he took in his life. He went on many cruises and went to many different countries. He was a person who did everything himself but now he needs help all the time because ten years ago he had a bad stroke. But day by day he tries to exercise, take medication, feel happy, enjoy time with his family, and be more optimistic about his life. God bless him and his family. I hope I can work a long time with him.
