Hello, language learners! Today we are going to talk about what Gen Zers want from work. Gen Zers are the youngest generation in the workforce, born between 1997 and 2012. They are very interested in working for organizations that have a positive impact on society and the environment. They also want to have a good work/life balance and a diverse, inclusive and supportive workplace. Gen Zers are not afraid to speak up for their values and to reject work assignments or employers that they feel are unethical or harmful. They want to be empowered to drive change through their individual work and to have a say in the decisions that affect them. Gen Zers are holding their employers accountable and expect them to put purpose at the heart of their business. What do you think about Gen Zers' expectations? Do you share them?

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.
Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure.

Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.
Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
