Drug Testing Agreement



Listen to the story of a young lady who went afoul of the law. Research the underlined words and translate the drug testing agreement. Add the underlined words to a term list. Terms may appear on the written or oral exam. Then, record your interpretation to practice sight translation (an oral translation of a written text). All three practices increase the possibility that you will pass the oral exam. Linguee can serve as a starting point for research.


Greta stole $4oo from her mother’s purse. She already missed over a month of high school. Cash in hand she ventured to the local park to purchase methamphetamine (speed, chalk, tweak, gak, Tina) from an undercover officer. Her scheme resulted in two charges; truancy and possession of controlled substances, a minor drug offense. The local magistrate imposed a year probation and random drug screening. Her probation officer will reassess the case periodically to determine compliance with the guidelines. Any violation of the probation conditions subject Greta to return to court.
