InEngland, children always begin to go to school at the age of five or six. Afterfinishing their ninth grade, some of them go to high school to continue theirfurther education, and some of them go to vocational school to learn somepractical skills.
Vocationalschools are much more interesting than high schools, for there are manydifferent classes in the school, like mechanics, electronics, car-repairing,computer-programming, nursing, accounting, and so on. At vocational schools,students usually have classes in the morning, while in the afternoon; theyoften go outside school to practice. Some of them work as cashiers in theshops; some of them work as waiters or waitresses in the restaurants; some ofthem work as tour guides to show the visitors around the city. Sometimes theyalso go to the factories. The old workers often teach them how to operate themachines. Most of them are very hardworking. When they graduate from school,they will have gained some work experience, so they will have more opportunitiesto find a good job.
