school days_ like or dislike?

present occupation

do you like or dislike school days?

What is your present occupation?

  • What is the problem with the second question? Is it that you do not know the meaning of "occupation"?

Both questions are grammatically correct.

An answer to the second question could be “My current occupation is teaching” or “My present occupation is that of a teacher”. If you find that that sounds too formal and stilted, you can simply reply with “I teach for a living” or “I’m a teacher”.

Note that it is grammatically wrong to say “My current occupation is a teacher” since ‘teacher’ refers to a person, not a job or occupation.
