Mr. Day was a teacher at a school in a big city in the north of England. He
usually went to France or Germany for a few weeks during his summer holidays,
and he spoke French and German quite well.
But one year Mr. Day said to one of his friends, ‘I’m going to have a holiday
in Athens. But I don’t speak Greek, so I’ll go to evening classes and have Greek
lessons for a month before I go.’
He studied very hard for a month, and then his holidays began and he went
to Greece.
When he came back a few weeks later, his friend said to him, ‘Did you have
any trouble with your Greek when you were in Athens, Dick?’
‘No, I didn’t have any trouble with it,’ answered Mr. Day. ‘But the Greeks
did!’

Read the text and translate the unknown words.

Rose left school when she was seventeen years old and went to a college for a
year to learn to type. She passed her examinations quite well and then went to
look for work. She was still living with her parents.
A lot of people were looking for typists at that time, so it was not difficult to
find interesting work. Rose went to several offices, and then chose one of them.
It was near her parents’ house. She thought, ‘I’ll walk there every morning. I
won’t need to go by bus.’
She went to the office again and said to the manager, ‘I want to work here,
but what will you me?’
‘We’ll pay you £27 now,’ the manager answered, ‘and £30 after three months.’
Rose thought for a few seconds before she answered. Then she said, ‘All
right, then I’ll start in three months’ time.’
