Conversación con un Amigo - Lectura en Inglés
Stacey: Hi Toni, how have you been? I haven’t seen you in months
Toni: I know, it has been too long! I have been fine thank you, I have recently started working as a psychological assistant which I’m really enjoying. What have you been up to since we last spoke?
Stacey: I have finally enrolled onto the post graduate criminology course I was telling you about, I’m really glad that I went ahead with it now
Toni: Of course, I remember you saying you wanted to do it but worried about the financial side of it. How did you get around that?
Stacey: I managed to get a loan through my bank with a low repayment rate, so I was able to cover the cost of the course with the loan and I will be paying it back in instalments
Toni: That is a great idea. I was thinking about doing a distance learning course but because of my work commitments now I’m not sure I would have time
Stacey: It is always an option you could consider in the future. I have had to take on a part time job to help me financially; I don’t think there are enough hours in the day to get everything done!
Toni: It will be difficult but it will all be worth it in the end. What were you hoping to do after you graduate?
Stacey: I would really like to get a job within the Probation Service. Remember I did some voluntary work there a few years ago, and I really enjoyed it
Toni: Yes I remember, it was during our second year at university. How time flies.
Stacey: I know it feels like just yesterday when we started at university. I enjoyed my time there though, I am glad to be back to studying again, I’m always at my happiest when I am in education
Toni: Good for you, you have found something you are good at and enjoy doing. I would love to study again but I was very lucky securing my job
Stacey: A psychological assistant is a brilliant role, it will give you plenty of experience working in the field. Are you still hoping to become a counsellor?
Toni: Yes I hope that eventually I can work my way up to owning my own business, offering therapy and counselling to young people
Stacey: Well good luck, I’m sure you will achieve it. Make sure you stay in touch, I have to go now
Toni: I will keep in touch, and good luck with your course, bye!
