First of all I want to tell you some words about the building where our flat is located. It is an eighteen-storey tower of flats in the south-west of the city. There is a park with three ponds not far from it. Ours is a cosy three-room flat on the fourteenth floor. The sitting room with a wall-size window facing the park is quite large. In this room there is a furniture unit. There is a TV-set, a
Our family is neither large nor small. There are four of us: my mother, my father, my brother and me. It is an average Russian family. My father is 47 years old. He is an engineer. He works in the office of an engineering company. He is always busy. He has very little free time. He likes his job and there are chances of promotion. My mother is a teacher of music. She works a lot. She does her
I My every day activities are quite routine. They do not differ much from those of any other pupil of our country. My working day begins at 7 o'clock in the morning when I get up. I do my physical jerks, wash, brush my teeth and comb my hair. Then I have breakfast. For breakfast I usually have toasted bread, fried eggs, corn flakes, tea or coffee and some jam. At ten to eight I leave for school. I go to
I think I can make a long speech about my school. I went to one and the same school for eleven years. I started schooling when I was six and finished my secondary education at the age of 17. It was school number 2 in Novogrudok. It was one of those ordinary schools that you would see in quite a number of small towns. I mean the building first of all. It's a three-storied building, rather plain from
My native town is Voronezh. I am proud to be its citizen. The history of Voronezh is bound up with the history of Russia. The first mention of Voronezh can be found in the Russian chronicles dated back to the 12-th century. At that time a multy-towered fortress was erected on the right bank of the Voronezh River to shield off the Russian land from the nomadic tribes.
As you know, many people like to live in the very centre of big cities, others prefer to live in the suburbs or even on a farm in the country. I live in the town of Novogrudok. I am fond of this place and I am always eager to describe my native place. I was born there and I have lived there all my life. Novogrudok is situated to the West of Minsk. It's not far from Minsk. You can get there in two hours by
I would like to tell you all about my home. Firstly I must tell you that I live in the small town of Novogrudok. It is an ancient township of Western Belarus, but within recent twenty years some new residential areas have sprung up around the town's old centre. We live in one of such newly built areas. We moved into our new flat five years ago. Ifs a four-room fiat on the third floor of a five-storied
Hobby is a special interest that people do in their free time. Everybody has his/her own hobby. As for me I prefer reading poems and short stories. I believe that fiction literature is one of he best ways of expressing feelings and thoughts. They usually mean more if they are raised to the level of art.
I Friendship is one of the greatest things in the world. Nobody knows how to define it in a proper way. I think that friendship is the highest spiritual achievement of men. I believe that a person can be happy if he or she has a true friend. I have a lot of good friends but my close friend is Jane. She is going to enter the Law Department this year. Jane is a very interesting person. I enjoy spending
It is certainly English. My English teacher was the person I loved best at school. Her lessons were always interesting and instructive. She always spoke about the importance of learning foreign languages. She used to say that a foreign language is very important. With the formation of independent states, it is important for the development of international contacts. More and more direct contacts are
