Zamenjevanje besed job in work je zagotovo ena najbolj pogostih napak slovenskih govorcev angleščine. Večkrat slišimo: I go to job/I start my job/I finish my job …, ker v slovenščini gremo v službo in le redko rečemo, da gremo na delo. A v angleščini je to napačno, ker se odpravljamo na delo.
  • I start work at 7 o’clock.
  • I usually finish work at 5pm.

Primer 2:

  • I got a job as a fashion designer at Lucas.
  • I got a work as a fashion designer at Lucas.
Pravilen odgovor:
I got a job as a fashion designer at Lucas.

Z besedo job označimo svoje delovno mesto, poklic, s katerim si služimo kruh – računovodja, zidar, učitelj …
  • I found a really good job as a sales manager at Vodafone.
  • I’m looking for a new job.

Primer 3:

  • I’m busy – I have a lot of job.
  • I’m busy – I have a lot of work.
Pravilen odgovor:
I’m busy – I have a lot of work.

Beseda work ima mnogo širši pomen, saj se lahko nanaša na kakršnokoli delo, ki ga opravljamo, in ne le na našo službo.
  • My work is very exciting.
  • Have you done any work today?
