LET THEM DREAM! Though todays society
pressures young people to immediately select a
career, it sometimes takes time to decide what
your real aspirations are. For example, while
Brad Pitt attended college to be a news 1
___________, he is now a millionaire movie star.
Although Serena Williams has a successful career
as a(n) 2 ___________, she is also studying to

Thank you for inviting me to speak. Let me first congratulate this years graduating class! (applause) I know that you all have aspirations regarding your future careers. Im here to tell you about what could happen even if you dont secure your dream job. Take Brad Pitt, for example. He studied journalism in college. Instead of news reporting, however, he became one of Hollywoods A-list actors. Other celebrities have similar stories. Curtis Stone, host of The Learning Channels Take Home Chef, yearned to play in the Australian Football League when he was growing upuntil his mother taught him how to cook. When Jim Carrey was a kid, he wanted to make a living by lessening animals pain. Now hes starred in many successful comedies instead. Serena Williams has won two Olympic gold medals in womens doubles, but being the worlds best tennis player isnt her ultimate dream. She longs to work in a nail salon. She is even taking classes so that she can get certified to give manicures. So remember, graduates, while your original dreams may not work out, something better could come your way!

Audio Transcripts
Thank you for your participation in todays employment fair. As a career counselor, I often get asked for advice on navigating the job market. Let me start by saying that the world is your oyster. Diligent workers with good qualifications will have a rosy future. Despite this, it is of enormous importance to be down-to-earth during your search. The economys current state is alarming, and it could be a long while before it makes a comeback. Until then, recent graduates will get a harsh reality check when they discover their only extras are medical and dental insurance. Additionally, those new to the workplace will come to realize that they must work an average of nine hours more each week than their senior coworkers. And with just seven days of annual leave, ones hopes of a lengthy trip to Hawaii will be quickly dashed. However, dreams can come true! Although some of you might be let down, many of you will find that the skys the limit.

Dialogue 1 Coach Jones Andy, you arent as bulky as the rest of these guys, so you are at a disadvantage. If you want to make the team, youll need to try your hardest. Andy I understand, coach. Coach Jones Youre not going to get anywhere if you perform like last year. If you want to impress me, you must persevere in spite of your size. Andy Dont worry! I wont fall flat on my face this time.

Dialogue 2 Tommy Its been ages since I saw you, coach! Coach Jones Stop kidding around, Tommy. I saw you two days ago. Now listen up.

Dialogue 3 Coach Jones How is your twisted ankle, Billy? Billy Its almost at 100 percent. Im taking pain medicine, but the doctor said there wont be any side effects. Coach Jones I dont want you to blow your chance of becoming a professional by not letting your ankle heal fully. Billy I will absolutely take great pains to pass the tryouts. I wont let this injury deter me. Coach Jones I have faith in you, Billy. Just be careful to take care of that leg of yours.
Future in the Past We normally use the future in
the past to talk about something we thought was
going to happen. Remember that it is not
important whether or not it does actually happen.
Form Usage Example
would V. to offer or promise, to predict something He promised he would drive me to the airport.
was / were going to V. to plan or predict something She was going to be an ER nurse and ended up as a housewife.
was / were V-ing to talk about a future situation in the past I was planning to be a surgeon, but the enormous tuition costs dashed my hopes.

Future in the Past We normally use the future in
the past to talk about something we thought was
going to happen. Remember that it is not
important whether or not it does actually happen.
Usage Note As with other future forms, the future
in the past is not used in clauses starting with
time expressions such as before, by the time, as
soon as, or when. In such cases, use the simple
past. Example Dana already told Selma that
when she arrived would arrive, we would go to
the amusement park.
Perfect Modals We often use the following
structure to express the degree of certainty
about past events modal have past participle.
Perfect Modal Usage Example

Young and In Charge!
Susan Gregg Koger has always had a passion for
unique clothes and good deals. As a college
freshman, she and her boyfriend sold vintage
clothing they found at thrift stores through an
online shop they created. Although the site was
useful for extra income, they knew that if this
hobby was going to be a full-time job, they would
have to expand. They began purchasing clothing
from independent designers to carry along with
their vintage findings. Today, ModCloth has over
200 employees, and the company is valued at more

Building with Chocolate
Milton Hershey, a candy-making genius, knew what
he was talking about when he said, Caramels are
only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing.
Hersheys chocolate has been putting a smile on
peoples faces since 1900, when the chocolate bar
was introduced. Although the founder had
difficulty with his other businesses, Hersheys
has become an internationally known brand, both
for chocolate and for generosity.
Write an introduction and conclusion for the
essay about Hersheys below. Use the information
you collected above to write an effective hook
and clincher.
Milton Hershey was born in rural Pennsylvania in
1857. Despite growing up with little formal
education, Milton established the successful
Lancaster Caramel Company. He became passionate
about the art of making chocolate and began
coating his caramel candies in it. Chocolate was
expensive back then, and Milton realized that he
could find a way to manufacture affordable
chocolate so that everyone would be able to enjoy
its rich taste. After numerous experiments, he
discovered a recipe for delicious milk chocolate.
Hersheys chocolate was born!

Write an introduction and conclusion for the
essay about Hersheys below. Use the information
you collected above to write an effective hook
and clincher.
The Hersheys chocolate bar was quite
profitable, and Milton put those profits to good
use. He believed that workers who were treated
well would produce better products. Therefore, he
made improving his town a priority, spending
money to build a community building, convention
hall, and schools. In fact, Milton Hershey School
has been providing education to children from
lower-income families since 1909. Hershey, PA,
could have been a completely different place if
it werent for Miltons charity.

Write an introduction and conclusion for the
essay about Hersheys below. Use the information
you collected above to write an effective hook
and clincher.
Without Milton, Hershey, PA, wouldnt even
exist, and people would have to spend a small
fortune to get their hands on chocolate. Thank
goodness Milton Hershey recognized the permanent
popularity of this tasty treat. Imagine what we
could have missed out on!
