Hello! My name is David. I work for a construction company. I started working for this company in 2004. We build roads, dams,
bridges and things like that. At the moment my company is producing a plan for a new motorway. I usually work in the road
department, but this month I am working in the department that builds bridges. So my whole working day is different just now. I
normally spend a lot of time outdoors because I have to go to the construction sites. But with this new project I spend a lot of time
in the workshop. Now I am testing a model of one of the new bridges. I enjoy it a lot because I have learned a lot of new things.
