At reallife hostel. hey what’s up? so we here at reallife english  truly believe that being a confident and natural   english speaker can literally change your life.  for example, it could open up a whole new career   path for you. so in today’s lesson we are going  to be looking at 10 possible future jobs that you   could have

As a fluent english speaker. but before  we do if you’re new here, well every week we make   lessons just like this one that help you to go  from being a lost and insecure english learner, to   being a confident and successful english speaker.  if that sounds like something that you would like   for your english, then why don’t

You join our  community of over 300 000 reallifers from around   so you probably already know that english  is the global language. and this is amazing   because if you become a fluent english speaker,  it opens up all sorts of opportunities for you   basically anywhere in the world. just imagine  you could be working in

A job with people from   the pandemic, it’s become more common than   people from all over the world. just like we   looking at some jobs that you can do online and   other ones that maybe you can find in your city  or by traveling abroad. and finally it’s probably   something that you already have on your mind, 

It can be a huge benefit to be making money in   another currency, like the dollar, the euro or  the pound. so let’s get started with our list.   first up you could become a tour guide and this  is a perfect job if you love things like history   art or culture. and nowadays it’s become easier  than ever with different services

Like airbnb   giving a tour in your city for free volunteering   so that you can get a little bit of experience  and oftentimes with these kind of tours (i know   at least here in barcelona) they offer some of  these and they’re completely based on tips. so   if you do a really good job, if you go above and  beyond, then

People are going to want to give you   money. even though you’re just volunteering to  start out with. and many fluent english speakers   gravitate towards the tourism industry, so this  could be a great place for you to get started,   if that includes you. and you could maybe start  out with this in your own city and then even

Look   for opportunities abroad, so it could be a great  way for you to get some traveling experience.   and continuing in tourism you could work in the  hospitality industry. you could of course become   a restauranteer, you could be someone who works as  a waiter or a busboy or bus girl in a restaurant.   that’s the

Person who cleans up the plates after  people are finished eating. a really great thing   if you’re able to do this in a country like the  united states is you would even get tips again.   just great to look for restaurants that are in   more touristic areas and, you know, maybe the pay  isn’t that great, but you’re really looking

For   that experience to start developing your english  with people who are traveling so that you’re using   your english out there in the real world. you’re  gaining some more confidence with your speaking.   a hotel or in a hostel as a receptionist and   people from around the world. and actually i   have some


Friends who have incredible english  speaking and guess where they got their start.   they worked as a receptionist in a hostel and  this even allowed them to meet travelers and   to even make some friends that they have until  this day. something else that you could do is   organizing events, which is something that we used 

To do at reallife english. we would have these   really great big english parties where, you know,  we’d be in brazil or here in barcelona and a bunch   of locals get together and speak english with  some drinks. it’s really fun. so, i used to love   going to other events too here in barcelona. this  would be a great thing to

Look for for improving   your english in your city. but even if you don’t  have these in your city, then why don’t you be   the person who organizes it? even if it’s just  a few people getting together to have some fun   speaking english, it can be a really great way  to make connections and, again, you’re getting  

Some valuable experience that you could then use  to apply to a future job. or maybe you’re already   working in a multinational company but you just  have not had many opportunities yet to use your   english in your job. if this is the case, then i  highly recommend that you have a conversation with   your boss and you tell him

Or her that you would  be really open to any opportunities like this   which can be really great because, you know,  a lot of people have families, they don’t want   to be away from them, so if you show that you’re  interested in this, maybe because you’re younger,   open to that, then maybe those opportunities   send

You on that plane to that other place.   some of these don’t even have to necessarily be  that you’re going for a meeting or something like   that. a lot of times companies will promote their  employees going abroad for different learning   experiences, so maybe it could be attending a  conference at your company’s headquarters

Or   that you look into if your company offers   any benefits like this or even if your company  is offering these kind of opportunities digitally   to attend some sort of webinar or digital event. i  highly recommend again that you jump on it because   getting this kind of experience will give you the  skills that you

Need then to be considered for   great on your resume that you’ve attended   you can apply for a job in another country,   so if that’s something you have as an objective  in your life, then make sure that you’re taking   already have where you are right now. and,   you know, depending what career you’re in or what 

You’re studying, what you studied at university,   working remotely. especially since the pandemic,   finding that it’s much easier to find talent   from anywhere in the world than just limiting  themselves to the city where they are physically   looking into this if it’s something that you’re   getting that experience

Of working with people   in the workplace. there are tons of different   ways that you can do this. obviously you can be  directly hired by a company to work for them,   with different companies or entrepreneurs.   really help other people, then you might want   to check out some websites like upwork or fiverr 

Where you can display these skills. and you can   already be getting paid for doing those things.  if you get enough clients maybe they’ll even   give you the opportunity to travel abroad or to do  other things that you’re really passionate about.   and if you have really fluent english, one of  these potential jobs could be being

A translator.   you know, people always need to translate   documents and websites and things like this into  english and a lot of times they will even have   a person on their team who does that. you could  start your own translation business and work with   different companies, or work as a freelancer with  people

Who are just working on projects that need   to be translated. if you get really good at this,  then you could even specialize in it, you know,   get some sort of certification and even become a  live interpreter. just imagine being at some sort   of event where you’re listening and you’re having  to translate as it’s going. it
