More Talks With My Students, Cnt'd

I am giving an oral exam in Spanish. The assignment is to talk about your ideal job.

Student: I want a job with a very good salary.

Me: How would you define a good salary?

Student: A good salary is above the minimum wage.

I don't know whether to be glad that students have such realistic expectations or to be sad that their hopes are so minimal.
