Fiona en Jack praten met elkaar over hun werk.

Fiona and Jack talk about their jobs.

Fiona: “Wat is jouw beroep?”

Fiona: What is your occupation?

Jack: “Ik ben politieagent.”

Jack: I’m a police officer.

Fiona: “Echt? Dat is spannend!”

Fiona: Really? That must be exciting!

Jack: “Nou, niet altijd. We moeten veel administratie doen.”

Jack: Well, not always. There is a lot of paperwork to do.

Fiona: “Hoe lang ben je al politieagent?”

Fiona: How long have you been a police officer?

Jack: “Meer dan 20 jaar.”

Jack: More than 20 years.

Fiona: “Dat is lang. Ben je door je werk veranderd?”

Fiona: That’s a long time. Has your job changed you personally?

Jack: “Ja. Ik drink nu met mate alcohol, omdat ik gezien heb hoeveel levens er door zijn vernietigd.”

Jack: Yes. I only drink alcohol in moderation now, because I’ve seen how many people’s lives have been destroyed because of it.

Fiona: “Zo erg?”

Fiona: So bad?
