Double-click on any word for an English definition, or translate:
What's your job? and What do you do for a living?
The Beginner version of this clip contains only "is" and "are" with names of jobs.
The Pre-Intermediate version uses the present simple ("do" and "does").
The answers in the first clip are limited to "I'm a mailman", for example, but NOT "I deliver mail".
The second version includes "Do" in the question, with verbs in the presest simple tense in the answers,
for example "I deliver mail", or "I work for a TV sation".
The Exercises are based on clips from both versions.
