Read and translate the text. Answer the following questions.



Many teenage girls want to be stewardesses. They think it is a lovely job. The money is very good and you can travel cheaply all over the world – when you have free time. I live in a flat with a stewardess and I know that her job is very difficult and tiring. Louise never has time for anything. She often has to rush to the airport at five o’clock in the morning. She never knows exactly where she will be at any time. Her plans are never definite until the last minute. Every time I see her she is running, with a suit-case in one hand, looking at her watch.

Last week on a flight from New York to London all the cabin crew were busily serving meals and drinks to the hundreds of passengers. There were some children jumping up and down in their seats shouting for more orange squash. Then the chief stewardess noticed a strange smell which was coming from one of the kitchens on the 747. “What is that smell?” she asked Louise. “It’s the roast beef cooking,” Louise replied. “But we are not serving roast beef in its flight,” the chief stewardess said.

“I know,” Louise explained. “But I am going to have a dinner party tonight and I won’t have time to cook it when I get home!”
