I want to be an interpreter. It is an interesting and useful
My parents have a large library and they taught me to like
books. I like reading books. My favourite subjects in school
are English, Literature, Geography and History. My favourite
English and American writers are Shakespeare, Dickens, Walter
Scott, Jack London, Mark Twain.
Once at the class of Literature, our teacher told us that,
when translated, literary works lose much of their beauty. She
said that poetry is very hard to translate. From that day I
have a dream. I want to have my favourite books in the original
and to know the languages they are written in. So I will enjoy
the real beauty of these books.
I also like reading books about other countries and cultures.
It is so interesting to learn that other people think differently.
I want to become an interpreter because of some reasons. It
is an interesting profession because an interpreter meets people
from different countries and cultures all the time and has an
opportunity to learn much about them. Besides, this profession
is very useful because it helps people to understand each other.
