3. Find the mistakes and correct them.
 
I would like to be a top football player. If I am a top football player, I would be very famous and have a lot of money, and everyone would love me. I will be on television all the time and play at lots of different stadiums and in different countries — this would be fantastic! I love sport and I love to play football, so I am thinking about trying to join the national team when I am older. It is difficult because so many people want to be top football players, but if I find the chance, I would take it. But because top football players are famous they cannot do normal things like normal people. If a top football player will walk down the street, everyone runs to him and asked him for his signature. So maybe I do not really want to become a top football player. But it is nice to dream about what it is going to be like!

5. Read the paragraph. Underline the correct words in parentheses.
 
I want to learn to speak English really well. If someone speaks English well, they (have – will have – would have) a better chance to find a job or go to university. If I (will pass - passed – pass) all my exams in English, I will look for a job in tourism or at an international company.But I need to practise a lot and do my homework regularly. Unfortunately, I did not study hard last year and so now I am taking extra classes. If I had studied more last year, I (will not - would not – do not) have needed to take extra classes this year. I think that people who speak more than two languages have an even better chance to find a job or study at university. If I (will have - would have – had) more time and money, I would like to study French as well.
