I 3. Ask me whether I liked school when I was a pupil.
Did you like to go to school in your childhood?
(Did you like your school when you were a pupil?)
What was your favourite subject?
Who was your favourite teacher?
Did you have classes on Saturday?
How much time did it take you to do your homework?

I 4. What ideas from Belarusian school can you advise a teacher from Great Britain to use in British school?
I donít think itís a good idea to be intrusive. First of all, Iím not a professional person in the sphere of education. Secondly, it would be more reasonable to have some kind of experience of real British education. And only then, if I were asked, I would be able to suggest something.
I 5. Today some young people think that having a good education is not very important. Do you agree with them?
It all depends on many things. Those people who think that having a good education is not very important, have their own plans. Some girls want to be good mothers and have big families. Other people think that manual professions do not need good education. In this case they are mistaken. To my mind all professions need special education. Nowadays only highly qualified workers can deal with rather sophisticated equipment and computers.
It has always been important to have a good education. Unfortunately, these days the values have changed and a person with a good education very often canít find a place in the society.
WellÖ It is partly true. If you are ready to limit your ambitions to being a driver, itís up to you to do so. You neednít go to college to become a good driver, do you? If you are a little bit more ambitious, you have to understand the ideas behind most of things in life. If you want to be a politician and you know very little about how many things work in politics you might scrape through, but your sheer luck wonít last long. You stand no chance of gaining some place of power if you are not able to use it effectively.
In my opinion it is very important to have a good education nowadays because we live in a fast changing competitive world. It is extremely important to be able to find your place in this world to be able to adapt to constantly changing conditions. Deep knowledge of in different spheres can help you to understand the world around you and yourself, can help you get a well-paid, prestigious job with good working conditions, job promotion. Most professions require qualifications or even a degree. A good education can become the foundation of your career. Good education develops your ability to find information , to think creatively in order to solve problems. What is more good education can help you bring-up your own children and help them with their schoolwork. While studying you will be in touch with intelligent, cultured, original people, which is a very beneficial experience. If you have a good knowledge of English you can communicate with people from all over the world and get a lot of interesting information, read books and watch films in the original. To sum it up it is very important to have a good education.
