CSEC Spanish: Los Profesiones/La Carrera

Most topics of the CSEC syllabus require you to be able to give, seek and respond to information regarding that certain topic.

Likewise, this lesson will be broken up into questions that seek certain information and responses which give the requisite information.

A useful question is about what someone wants to be in the future.


¿Qué te gustaría ser en el futuro? What would you like to be in the future?

¿Qué quisiera ser en el futuro? What would you like to be in the future?


Responding:

Me gustaría ser... en el futuro. I would like to be a... in the future.

Yo quisiera ser... en el futuro. I would like to be a... in the future.


As you might have guessed, you add whatever profession you want (in Spanish) right where you see '...'


el abogado lawyer

el doctor doctor

el empesario businessman

(These are just a few professions. You can find a longer more complete list of professions on our SpanishDict Vocabulary list. SpanishDict's vocabulary feature is very quick and easy for creating vocabulary lists and reviewing.)


Note: When speaking about profession, the article ('la' or 'el') is not used after the verb 'ser':

Me gustaría ser dentista en el futuro. I would like to be a dentist in the future.


Another useful question is about the qualities one would need to be a certain profession.

¿Cómo es un(a)...? What is a... like?

¿Qué cualidades tiene un(a) buen(a)...? What qualities does a good... have?

Once again, just substitute the ellipsis with a profession, and ensure that the adjective (buen/un) agrees in gender with the profession.


Un(a) buen(a)... es... A good... is...

Las cualidades de un(a) buen(a)... son... The qualities of a good... are...

Un(a)... debe ser... A... must be...


After these sentences, you can add several adjectives that describe that specific profession.

trabajador(a) hardworking

analítico analytical

meticuloso meticulous

paciente patient

decidido determined

esforzado hardworking

(You can find a longer list of useful adjectives on our SpanishDict list here)
