    Read the test and write the correct paragraphs (1- 4) next to the headings (a–d).   Holiday adventures Are you on holiday? Are you thinking about what to do this summer? Here at Teen Life we love holidays and we’ve got some great ideas for you on how to spend these long, hot days!1 If you want to work as part of a team and don’t have a problem with hard work, then you could look for a job in a hotel. The summer holidays are also busy times for hotels. Many managers look for new staff in July and August. These are the busiest times in the hotel year. Why not read your local newspapers and look online to find a hotel job this summer? 2 Do you want to learn English and have fun at the same time? There are English schools all over the UK and it’s a great way to make new friends and practise your English every day. The schools also organise day trips to exciting and interesting places so you will have a lot of great photos to show your friends when you get home! 3 Have you ever walked through a rainforest? Have you ever seen animals like lions and tigers and elephants? It’s true that it costs a lot of money to go to these places, but it is also possible to find work in many exciting countries. You don’t get any money for this, but you will see some great sights! If you are strong and good with your hands, you could help to build a school or a hospital in Africa! 4 Does all this sound like very hard work? Do you want to have some time off? Maybe youshould just relax and enjoy a long, beach holiday, hanging out with your friends. It’s holiday time – enjoy yourself!
