Band 9 Model Answer
It’s difficult to predict the future as to what job will dominate the labor market but I’m pretty sure that teaching English as a foreign language can be one of the hottest professions in the upcoming years. And, to be honest. I’m working hard on improving my English teaching skills to prepare myself properly for this golden opportunity.
Teaching English requires patience and perseverance and if you’re an impetuous and bad-tempered person, then this noble profession is not cut out for you. In this job, I will have to get exposed to people of different educational and cultural backgrounds! some of them might be too stubborn to be a good listener or simply they’re too lazy to acquire any knowledge. The two qualities I have mentioned is my strong suit. Actually, I have been employed as a teaching assistant and somehow learnt about the art of imparting knowledge find encourage students to actively participate in the lessons without being fed up with teachers’ lectures. On top of that, although I’m a bit impulsive and strict with the students, I think this characteristic can be tackled over time and that being not too lenient with the students means I care for them pretty much, doesn’t it?
At the moment, teaching social subjects like Literature or History admittedly doesn’t guarantee a lucrative income. Yet it’s not the same for English as it’s an international language and is a prerequisite for international students or those working in multinational corporations. So, I speculate that in the foreseeable future, the job as an English teacher will promise a bright future.

Do people who have different levels of income feel happy about how much they earn?
This is a fascinating question, really. The discrepancy in income levels generally reflects the degree of happiness a person may feel.

On the contrary, if people can’t take their mind off stuff like how’ to earn a living to support their family financially, definitely they sense no happiness in this life.
What do you think employers (or supervisors) can do to help motivate their employees to perform better at work, besides giving them a pay raise?
There is a number of ways that bosses or supervisors can adopt to raise their employees morale and enhance the overall work productivity apart from offering them higher salary. I guess the most effective approach would be for companies to organize annual excursions so that their workers can socialize with one another and cultivate team spirit while they can escape from the stress for a while. The second one is that more a flexible working schedule should be brought in as this would allow workers to have more quality family time and a worry free set of mind at work.

As many companies give a low pay but require them to work harder, young people have no choice but quit their current Job mid look for other positions that can give them some sense of satisfaction. Another reason for job-hopping is that some people can’t find a suitable work environment and try different workplaces to find out their own interests, which is really important for long-term commitment
Would you like to apply for challenging jobs or common jobs?
