ЕГЭ 2015. Английский язык. Сборник заданий

Interviewer: If society only works on faith like you say it does, what do you think is holding our society to­gether today?Interviewee: Well, the faith that holds our society to­gether is faith in the system; it's faith in a lot of things. It's faith in the Constitution, faith in the government, faith in the President, faith in Congress, faith in your local police officer, faith in the institutions and that they're doing the right thing. Once you lose that, the so­ciety falls apart, because people don't believe in it any more. And it's the glue that holds this society together, or anything, really.

Interviewer: What do you think are some of the great­est challenges facing teens today, and what can they do to overcome them?

Interviewee: Well, I think the hardest challenge you'll face is to figure out what you want to do with your life.

And it's interesting, because society has not built in an adequate system to deal with that, and it is the key decision. We have let people float and land and stick to something. Most young people don't get any exposure to the kinds of opportunities that are out there. I think the one thing young people can do is travel as much as pos­sible, have as many experiences as they can and associate with many professionals in various fields. As they work they get a sense of what kinds of jobs and opportunities are out there, which are endless. Most kids have a very, very narrow scope of what they think is available. When they go to college opportunities grow a little bit, but the endless variety of kinds of work you can do and careers you can have is amazing, and it's important you find something you really enjoy doing.

Interviewer: What advice can you give a young person who wants to be a filmmaker?

Interviewee: Well, I would say you have to be persis­tent first of all, because it's a very hard thing to get into, and it's very hard to make it because the odds are against you. So, you have to really love it; kids who get into it because they think they're going to make a lot of money or be famous or tell a lot of people what to do all the time will never make it. But if you're obsessed with film and you love to tell stories and you love working in that medium, then that will give you the strength to be persistent and make it happen. 276

Interviewer: Thank you very much that you have found time to answer teens' questions.
