This is a reading worksheet for intermediate and upper-intermediate students. It starts with a speaking warm-up where students are to discuss a few work-related quotes. Next, they move on to a speech which Bill Gates gave to a group of teenage students. The speech is a bitter-sweet set of rules on life. There is a mini dictionary attached, as well as a vocabulary practice part. All my students really enjoy this text, I hope it will be useful to some of you!
