People are so career-obsessed nowadays that they spend their whole life to achieve their goals. While climbing the career ladder or expanding their business, people don’t notice really important things around them, such as their family, nature, some pleasant trifles, possibilities to travel or just to read an interesting book. When they come to their retirement age they start to regret that they couldn’t see real-life priorities. Nowadays a career break or sabbatical is getting more and more popular as people don’t want to miss an opportunity to be happy right here and right now but not after accomplishing one more business project. This worksheet will help your students learn more about such a trend as a sabbatical, they will expand their vocabulary on this topic, develop their listening and reading skills and, of course, they will practise speaking for fluency.
