Mai: Hi, Jim. How're things? You look very busy!
Jim: Oh, I'm surfing the net. I'm trying to find out what options are available for school leavers.
Mai: So what do you want to do after you finish secondary school?
Jim: Hmm.... I don't know, so I'm searching for websites offering career advice so that I can come up with a plan.
Mai: Do you plan to go straight to university or join the workforce without pursuing further study?
Jim: Well, I want to go straight to university, but I'm also thinking of applying for a temporary job in the summer.
Mai: What kind of job are you looking for?
Jim: I'm looking for work in marketing companies. I'd love to do smartphone marketing.
Mai: I see. You want to gain work experience, and save up some money for university.
Jim: Exactly. I've secured a university place to study economics. And how about you? What kind of career are you looking for, Mai?
Mai: Well, I'd love to work in a hospital. I want to become a doctor.
Jim: Then you'll have to study medicine.
Mai: Right. And I want to go to a medical university in the UK. You know, I took the IELTS two weeks ago, and I'm looking forward to the exam results from The English Language Centre at the British Council.
Jim: Great! Have you been in touch with The English Language Centre?
Mai: Yes, I have. They said they would send me the results next week. If I get a band score of 6.5, I'll apply for a scholarship and study in the UK.
Jim: Good luck! And remember to practise your English more often.
Mai: Thanks a lot. I'll try my best to. I want to speak English as fluently as you.
Jim: I hope that your dreams come true.
Mai: Thank you very much, Jim.
