  3. What are you going to do once you graduate?
  4. What is your dream job?

Student 1:

  1. Yes. Ever since I was a little girl I knew I liked English and reading. I entered this major because I wanted to study literature but now I know for sure that Linguistics is my thing.

  2. Yes. My dream is to know all I can about languages and to keep studying this until I die, so yes, as long as I’m studying languages I’m living the dream.

  3. Everything! I’ll probably start by getting a teaching degree but after that I’ll like to keep on studying linguistics and maybe carry out some research.

  4. Editing dictionaries seems kind of fun to me.

Student 2:

  1. Not really. I’ve never had a dream so I couldn’t say this was it.

  2. No, since I don’t actually have a dream.

  3. Probably study translation.

Student 3:

  1. Yes. I worked really hard to get in here.

  2. Yes! I spent all of my senior year at school daydreaming about studying this

  1. Kind of… At first I thought about entering the Hispanics major but after thinking it for a while I decided to apply to this major instead.
