hello everyone I'm Nick Shepherd welcome

this is a listen and repeat video hope

you find it useful hello all you lovers

of English today I'm talking about work

what is work my definition of work is

simple it's doing something that

somebody else needs whether you're

building computers serving in a

restaurant looking after children

working for the government whatever it

is you do you're doing something for

other people and those people pay you

directly or indirectly a lot of people

think that work is a bad thing working

conditions can be bad but that's not

about the work work is also bad if you

do too much of it or do it the wrong way

or for too little money but it's not the

work itself that is bad it's the way the

work is organized I have done different

kinds of jobs in my life from working in

the mines to teaching managing teachers

are now making videos mostly I have

found some satisfaction in my work and

as a teacher and video maker I have felt

happy I feel I am doing something

however small to make the world a

slightly better place for myself and

others whatever you do in your work you

are helping other people surely that

must be a good thing now it's your turn

I'm going to play that again this time

with gaps and you can repeat what I said

phrase by phrase ready here it is what

is work

my definition of work is simple

it's doing something that somebody else

needs

whether you're building computers

serving in a restaurant

looking after children

working for the government

whatever it is you do

you're doing something for other people

and those people pay you

directly or indirectly

a lot of people think that work is a bad

thing

working conditions can be bad

but that's not about the work

work is also bad

if you do too much of it

we'll do it the wrong way

or for too little money

but it's not the work itself that is bad

it's the way the work is organized

I have done different kinds of jobs in

my life

from working in the mines

to teaching

managing teachers

are now making videos

mostly I have found some satisfaction

in my work

and as a teacher and video maker

I have felt happy

I feel I am doing something

however small

to make the world a slightly better

place

for myself and others

whatever you do in your work

you are helping other people

surely that must be a good thing okay
