(Đọc văn bản và trả lời các câu hỏi dưới đây bằng cách chọn phương án phù hợp nhất A, B, C hoặc D.)

Becoming a teacher demands not only knowledge in an academic field but also a personal commitment to lifelong learning, and enthusiasm for sharing knowledge with other people. To become one of those noble educators in the USA, one has to satisfy several basic requirements.

First and foremost, it is a prerequisite to have a bachelor’s degree in education.

In the event that a candidate already has a bachelor’s degree in another field, a teacher preparation program is needed. But that is not all. Almost every school in the USA understands that real classroom teaching experience is a vital part of a teacher’s training. Before taking over a class, a person typically needs to complete a training program, including working as a supervised student teacher.

People who want to become university teachers need higher degrees. Getting a master’s degree is a necessity, but if it is gained too early there may be concerns that the candidate lacks the real-world experience to go with it.

In fact, very few schools want to hire novices with little classroom experience and even if they are accepted, those newly-trained educators are usually very ill-paid. One wise solution to the issue is for future postgraduates to start working as teachers before going on to gain their master’s degree.

Besides knowledge and experience, certain personal qualities are also required. A teacher should be positive, prepared, focused, and most importantly, patient. Being a teacher involves being aware of the fact that learning can sometimes be hard work, even for the most motivated students. Also, teaching can at times be tiring and frustrating so a teaching candidate has to practise being patient with themselves.

In short, as in other careers, teaching requires a combination of qualifications, experience, and personal qualities. Teaching candidates meeting the mandatory requirements are always in demand in the USA.

Audio script

Today, we are going to talk about the reasons for the killing of elephants in Africa.

Like much of the world, we all know that the African elephant is a seriously endangered species. A booming Chinese middle-class with an expensive taste for ivory, poverty in Africa, and most importantly, weak and corrupt law enforcement means more elephants are being k I led than ever. As a result, some 30,000 African elephants are killed each year, more than 100,000 between 2010 and 2012, and the pace of killing is not slowing.Tanzania recently announced that its elephant population has fallen from 110,000 to fewer than 44,000. Locals, including poor villagers, are killing elephants for cash. Even if they are caught, the penalties are too light to act as a real deterrent. Park rangers are often the only force opposing the killers, but their numbers are small and they are ill-equipped. They are troops on the front line of a violent battlefield which affects the whole ecosystem of the world.
