"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Hi @jessy50 ,
    Nice to meet you.
    I think you'd better say: "I had studied Radiography and then worked as a radiographer from 1997 until 9 years ago."

    Have you another occupation, now?
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,554 mod
    Hi @bymoh ,
    Nice to meet you too.
    Where do you drill petroleum?
    On an island?

    BTW; maybe it's better to say: "I have been working as a petroleum drilling trainer at The Algerian Petroleum Institute since June 2016."
