MOST STRIKING TRAITS OF PEOPLES CHARACTER

During our life we get in touch with many people. We all know a
password: “So many characters, so many people ” and it is really true.
Character is the most important thing in a person which attracts or
repulses other people. Each of us has his or hers good and bad features
of character, but some of them come to the fore that’s why we can say :
“He is a bad man , because he is rude or impertinent . And he is a good
man because he is courageous, generous, kind-hearted . I have many
friends & a lot of acquaintances and they are all different . Some of
them are very kind-hearted and friendly some are not so kind but they
are devoted friends and always help me and their friends, but they can
be very cold or indifferent to other people. Also some feature have a
double nature example: modesty or perseverance and others. Modest people
are usually polite, quite, but sometimes they tend to be too reticence.
Persevering people can become obstinate. As for me I like devotedness ,
wittiness , kindness, friendliness , in people. I think that there are 2
sorts of kind people. The first sort is really ,kind-hearted people who
are always ready to help all people in the world no matter what social
position they have The other sort who only try to look kind and
friendly. But they are friendly only with people whom they interested
in. I hate such people because you don’t know if they are really good or
only want to look friendly and I cannot trust them. A lot of things can
change a person’s character. If you are a kind man and you has grow up
with rude, cruel people you can become the like them or vice versa a bad
man can become kind. Some people have a strong character and they can
try to change and become good. For example people why often let of their
steam it is necessary to control themselves and so on. Every character
forms in the society therefore in the society determines one’s
character. Also I believe that Signs of Zodiac influence one’s
character. Every Symbol has own features common for all people born
under this symbol. For example I’m Libra ,in my Horoscope it says that
in me there are 2 persons. And other good and bad features. But I also
believe that everyone can change his character, adding more good or bad
features.

THE UK EDUCATION SYSTEM

First i’d like to criticize John Major’s position about that a good
educa- tion is not necessarily the key of success in British life.As far
as i’m concercerned i fully disagree with it.As far as Mr.Major is
concerned i suppose that he did not pay great attention to his
school-life: A school- leaver at the age of sixteen Mr.Major even
claimed a recent television in- terview that he could not remember
exactly his academic qualifications we- re.While the head of the
goverment show it their nonchalant attitude towa- rds the education all
British political parties are now talking about the education issue very
seriously indeed.In fact in recent years the subject has risen to the
very top of political agenda.In the year 1989-90 spending on education
consumed 14% of all public expenditure in the UK.And as far as our
country’s spending on education are concerned – they are less then 1.5%
of the whole public expenditure.As far as our primary schools are
concerned they are not offering the sub-standart teaching in reading
etc. The tests showed that the average Russian school-child is 4-5 years
above his or her American or English contemporary.Just the 9-class
middle educa- tion is enought to enter a good foreign univercity.As far
as private scho- ols in UK are concerned i think that they are useful
from one side and useless from the other.The costs are very high.If i
had 3000 pounds i wo- uld not spend them on my education in
school.perhaps i would spent them on the education in any univercity but
not in school.Nowadays in Russia a lot of private and independent
schools were opened.I suppose that they influe- nce better on the
moulding the personality but the level of education is lower than in
primary comprehensives.As far as education is concerned it must be free
of charge from the state or any bany or company.I also suppo- se that it
must be compulsory and every boy and girl MUST have a primary
education.But the school must accept pupils on the selective basis with
reference to aptitude or ability.In the UK childern are accepted to
school on non-selective basis but it is not correct to my mind:
intelligent,good, bright pupils must study with lazy and silly ? No.
Lets take the Soviet education system as example.There very schools for
bright children with a foreign language from the 2nd form and school for
silly and lazy with techers,who are always ill.

BRITISH EDUCATION

British education emas us to develop fully the abilities of individuals,
for their own benefit and of society as a whole. Compulsory schooling
takes place between the agers of 5 and 16, but some pupils remain at
shool for 2 years more, to prepare for further higher education. Post
shool education is organized flaxebly, to provide a wide range of
opportunities for academic and vacational education and to continue
studying through out life. Administration of state schools is
decentralised. The department of education and science is responsible
for national education policy, but it doesn’t run any schools, if
doesn’t employ teachers, or prescribe corricular or textbooks. All
shools are given a considerable amount of freedom. According to the law
only one subject is compulsary. That is religious instruction. Children
recieve preschool education under the age of 5 in nursery schools or in
infant’s classes in primary schools. Most pupils receive free education
finenst from public fonds and the small proportions attend schools wholy
independent. Most independent schools are single-sex, but the number of
mixing schools is growing. Education within the mantained schools system
usually comprises two stages: primary and secondary education. Primary
schools are subdevided into infant schools (ages 5 – 7), and junior
schools (ages 7 – 11). Infant schools are informal and children are
encouraged to read, write and make use of numbers and develop the
creative abilities. Primary children do all their work with the same
class teacher exept for PT and music. The work is beist upon the pupils
interests as far as possible. The junior stage extence over four years.
Children have set pirits of arithmetic, reading, composition, history,
geography nature study and others. At this stage of schooling pupils
were often placed in A, B, C and D streams according their abilities.
The most able children were put in the A stream, the list able in the D
stream. Till reccantly most junior shool children had to seat for the
eleven-plus examination. It usually consisted of an arithmetic paper and
an entelligent test. According to the results of the exam children are
sent to Grammar, Technical or Secondary modern schools. So called
comprehansive schools began to appear after World War 2. They are muchly
mixed schools which can provide education for over 1000 pupils. Ideally
they provide all the courses given in Grammar, Technical and Secondary
modern schools. By the law all children must receive full-time education
between the ages of 5 and 16. Formally each child can remain a school
for a further 2 or 3 years and continue his studies in the sixth form up
to the age of 18 or 19. The course is usually subdevided into the lower
6 and the upper 6. The corricular is narrowed to 5 subjects of which a
pupil can choose 2 or 3. The main examinations for secondary school
pupils are general certeficate of education (the GCE) exam and
certificate of secondary education (the CSE) exam. The GSE exam is held
at two levels: ordinary level (0 level) and advanced level (A level).
Candidats set for 0 level papers at 15 – 16 years away. GCE level is
usually taken at the end on the sixth form. The CSE level exam is taken
after 5 years of secondary education by the pupils who are of everage
abilities of their age.

The educational system of Great Britain.

The educational system of G.B. is extreamely complex and bewildering. It
is very difficult to generalise about particular types of schools as
schools differ from one to the other. The departament of education and
science is responsible for national educational policy,but it doesn’t
employe teacher or prescribe corricular or text books. Each school has
it’s own board of governers consisting of teachers, parents, local
politicians, members of local community, businessmen and sometimes
pupils. According to the law only one subject is compulsary. Such as
religious instruction. Schooling for children is compulsary from 5 to
16, though some provision is made for children under 5 and some pupils
remain at school after 16 to prepare for higher education. The state
school system is usually devided into 2 stages (secondary and
primary).The majority of primary schools are mixed.They are subdevided
into infant schools(ages 5 to 7),and junior schools(ages 7 to11). In
junior schools pupils were often placed in A,B,C or D-streams, according
to their abilities. Under the pressue of progressive parents and
teachers the 11+ examination has now been abolished in most parts of the
country. There are some types of schools in G.B.Grammar schools provided
an academical cause for selected pupils from the age of 11 to 18. Only
those children who have the best results are admitted to these schools.
They give pupils a high level of academic education wich can lead to the
university. Technical Schools offer a general education with a technical
bias and serve those pupils who are more mecanically minded. The
corricular includes more science and mathematics. Secondary modern
schools were formed to provide a non-academic education for children of
lesser attainment. The corricular includes more practical subjects. The
comprehensive schools brings about a general improvement in the system
of secondary education.

British education

I know English boys and girls begin to go to school(it is called
“infant”) at five; at seven they go to junior schools or departments; at
eleven they go to secondary schools. (After selection procedures at the
age of eleven they can study at different types of secondary shool:
grammar schools which provide an academic education oriented toeards
university entry; secondary modern schools which were originally
designed to give a general education with a practical bias(уклон); a few
secondary technics schools offering a general education related to
industry, commerce and agriculture; and schools providing all three or
any two types of education, in separately orginized streams known as
multilateral or bilateral schools). These schools consist of
denominational and non-denominational schools. I’d like to yell you
about non-denominational school. One must study there for 6 years. It’s
open to all boys and girls. There are the six years in this school.
During the first year all classes recieve the same basic core of
subjects namely English, maths, history, geography, science, French,
art, music, P.E., technical subjects & home economics. Toward the end of
the second year pupils are asked to make their subject choices for third
and forth years. Desicions on this stage are only taken after interviews
involving parents, staff and the pupils themselfs. The curriculum in 3rd
and 4th years consistsof compulsory section (обязательное разделение)
which includes English, math and an options section made up of those
subjects choosen by the pupil at the end of the second year. Optionl
cources are designed to give a sound basic education. The system of
higher education in Britain includes universities, colleges of education
and advanced cources at various colleges. There are more than 44
universities in Britain. But not all universities are equil. They differ
from one another in history and tradition. The oldest and world-known
universities are Oxford and Cambridge. A university usually consists of
colleges. The departments of the colleges are organized into faculties.
In the university students have a series of lectures, seminars,
tutorials and laboratory classes. Lectures are given to large groups of
students while seminars are much smaller than lectures. Lectures and
seminars are all one hour in length, laboratory classes last 2 or 3
hours. The academic year devides into 3 terms. First two termslast for
24 weeks; the 3rd term is reserved for classes and examinations and
lasts for six weeks. After three years of study a university graduate
will leave with the Degree of Bachelor of Arts or Science. Student can
continue to take his Master’s Degree and then the Doctor’s.

Education

Education is very important in our life. An educated person is one who
knows a lot about many things. He always tries to learn, find out,
discover more about the world around him. He get knowledge at school,
from books, magazines, from TV educational programs. The pupils can get
deeper knowledge in different optional courses in different subjects and
school offers these opportunities. They can deepen and improve their
knowledge by attending different optional courses in different subjects.
The result of the educative process is the capacity for Further
education. Nowadays the students of secondary schools have opportunities
to continue their education by entering, gymnasiums, lyceums, colleges.
But the road to learning is not easy. There is noroyal road to learning.
To be successful in studies one must work heard. It’s for you to decide
to learn and make progress or not to learn lose your time. The role of
foreign languages is also increasing today. Thanks to the knowledge of
foreign languages one can read books, magazines in the original, talk to
foreigners, translate various technical articles. Moreover, joint
ventures which have recently appeared in our country need specialists
with profound knowledge of foreign languages like English, German or
French. To know foreign languages is absolute necessary for every
educated person, for good specialists. Our country is transferring to a
market economy. Research and innovations should improve living, working
conditions of our people. That is why it is so important to be
persistent in students. English is a world language. It is the language
of progressive science and technology, trade and cultural relations,
commerce and business. It’s the language of international aviation,
shipping and sports. It’s also the major language of diplomacy.
Geographically it is the most widespread language on earth, second only
to Chinese in the number of people who speak it hearing a foreign
language is- not an easy thing. It’s a long and slow process that takes
a lot of time and practice. A foreign language is not just a subject
learnt in the classrooms. It’s something which is used in real life
situations. There are many reasons why we begin to study foreign
languages. First of all it’s an effective medium of international
communication. I’m convinced if we are working in any brunch of science
we must read books and magazines in other languages. Learning foreign
languages opens up opportunities and careers that didn’t even exits some
years ago. Knowing foreign languages can help us to find a job in such
fields as science and technology, foreign trade and banking,
international transportation communication, teaching librarian science
and others. A more general aim is to make our intellectual and cultures.
Learning a foreign language including learning also culture, traditions
and mode of thought of different people. Of course speaking and writing
in a foreign language is a difficult art and it has to be learned.
Needless to say that English has become very popular today. About 350
million people speak English as its first language. About the same
numbers use it as a second language. It’s an official language in 44
countries. It’s the dominant language of medicine, electronics and space
technology, of international business and advertising, of radio. It has
replaced French in the world of diplomacy and German in the field of
science. As for me, I’m completely convinced that to know a foreign
language is absolutely necessary for all educated person and modern
specialists. Everything depends on our own efforts.

Education in Russia.

Citizens of Russia have the right to education which is guaranteed by
the Constitution. The public educational system in our country
incorporates pre-school, general school, specialized secondary and
higher education. Pre-school consists of kindergartens and creches.
Children there learn reading, writing and arithmetic. But pre-school
education isn’t compulsory – children can get it at home. Compulsory
education is for children from 6(7) to 17 years of age. The main link in
the system of education is the general school which prepares the younger
generation for life and work in modern production. There are various
types of schools: general secondary schools, schools specializing in a
certain subject, high schools, lyceums and so on. Tuition in most of
them is free of charge, but some new types of schools are fee-paying.
The term of study in a general secondary school is 11 years and consists
of primery, middle and upper stages. At the middle stage of a secondary
school the children learn the basic laws of nature and society at the
lessons of history, algebra, literature, physics and many others. After
9th form pupils have to sit for examinations. Also they have a choice
between entering the 10th grade of a general secondary school and
enroling in a specialized secondary or vocational school. Persons who
finish the general secondary school, recieve a secondary education
certificate, giving them the right to enter any higher educational
establishment. Entrance examinations are held in July and August.
Institutions are headed by rectors; the faculties are headed by the
deans. One has to study in the institute for 5 years. Higher educational
institutions train students in one or several specializations.

EDUCATION IN RUSSIA

Secondary education is mandatory in Russia. Children start school at the
age of 6 and finish at 17 . As a rule, a child attends the school
located in the neighborhood,the one which is the closes to home .
However , there in big cities there are also so-called “special” schools
, offering more in-depth studies of the major European languages (
English , French, or German), or the advanced courses in physics and
mathematics, and children attending one of these may have to commute
from home. There are no school buses in Russia. The first stage of
education is elementary school for grades 1 through 4. The second is
secondary school for grades 5 through 9 . Upon graduation from secondary
school ( which is not the equivalent of having completed their secondary
education ) , students are given the choice of either continuing to
attend the same school (high school; grades 10 and 11 ), or entering a
vocational school or trade school. Both vocational school and trade
schools are meant to provide one , long with the certificate of
secondary education, with a number of useful skills ( e.g. , those of an
electrician, technical, or computer operator ).One attends the former
for two years, and the latter for three or four. Haveing completed one’s
secondary education, one can either become part of work force or go on
to college ( ” institution of higher learning ” ). There are
universityes and so-called “institutes” in Russian . The former stress a
more teoretical , fundamental approach to education , while the latter
are more practice oriented. There are no medical schools or departments
with in the structure of Russian universitys . Future doctors attend
medical institutes. There are no degrees in Russian equivalent to those
of bachelor’s or master’s. Students spend approximately five years in
college or six in a medical institute. To be admited to an institution
of higher learning , one has to pass a series of oral and written tests.
Grades in the certificate of secondary education are also taken account.
Entry to higher education is quite competitive. Some college departments
( philologist,foreign languages-especially English,law, journalism )
have dozens of applicants for one prospective student’s position. The
same is true of medical and theatre institutes. Up to the present,
neither college students nor schoolchildren have had any say in the
selection of courses they had to take. Everyone has studied according to
uniform series of guide lines approved by the Ministery of Higher
Education . Evidently , this situation is going to change in the near
future. Education in Russian has until recently been free on all levels.
College students with good grades were rewarded with a modest stipend .
All institutions of higher learning were subsidized by the government .
Now that the country is changing to a market-place economy, the system
of education is also bound to undergo profound changes . The first
private scholls , gymnasiums and lycees, have already been founded in
Moscow and St. Petersburg , in an attempt to revive the pre-1917
traditionals of Russian educational system with its high standards of
excellence.

Education in Russia.

Everyone in our country has the right to education. It is said in our
Constitution. But it is not only a right, it is a duty, too. Every boy
and every girl in Russia must go to school, that is they must get a full
secondary education. So, when they are 6 or 7 years old they begin to go
to school. There are thousands of schools in Russia. There are schools
of general education, where the pupils study Russian (or a native
language), Literature, Mathematics, History, Biology, Geography, Music,
Foreign languages. There is also a number of specialized schools, where
the pupils get profound knoledge of foreign languages, or Maths, or
Physics. After finishing 9 classes of the secondary school the young
people can continue their education at different kinds of vocational or
technical schools, colleges. They not only learn general subjects, but
receive a speciality there. Having finished a secondary or a vocational,
or a technical school, young people can start working, or they may enter
an institute or a university. By the way, some people think, that
professional trainings makes it easier to get a higher education. As for
high schools, there are a lot of them in our country. Some of them train
teachers, others – doctors, engineers, architectors, actors and so on.
Many institutes have evening and extra-mural departments. That gives the
students an oportunity to study at an institute without leaving their
jobs at plants or factories.

Learning foreign language

Foreign languages are absolutely necessary for us no-wadays because of
our growing international contacts with all the countries of the world.
There are many reasons why we begin to study foreign language. One of
them is to be able to communi-cate with other people who use this
language. We may be planning to travel in one or two countries where the
lan-guage is spoken. If we know the language of a foreign country, we
can talk to its people and understand what they are saying to us. If we
are working in any branch of science, we naturally wish to read
scientific books and magazines in other languages. Making business
nowadays also means knowing foreign languages because of the gro-wing
international business contacts. Knowing foreign lan-guages helps people
of different countries to develop mutual friendship and understanding.
We can also make our intellectual and cultural horizons wider through
con-tacts with people of another culture. It is also very inte-resting
to read foreign literature in the original. We can also read foreign
newspapers and magazines and to un-derstand films in foreign languages
without any help. Learning foreign languages is compulsory in all the
secondary and higher schools in our country. English is a very popular
language. People use it in many parts of the world and there is a lot of
business correspondence and literature in English. I think, it is very
important to know at least one fore-ign language – English, German,
French, Spanish or any other one.

LEARNING FOREIGN LANGUAGE

The great German poet Goethe once said: He who know no foreign language
does not know his own one. Learning foreign languages is specially
important nowadays. Some people learn foreign languages because they
need them in their work, others travel abroad, for the third studying
languages is a hobby. Every year thousands of people from Russia go to
different countries as tourists or to work. They can not go without
knowing the language of the country they are going to. A modern engineer
or even a worker can not work with an imported instrument or a machine
if he is not able to read the instruction how to do it. Ordinary people
need language to translation the instruction or the manual to the
washing-machine or a vacuum-cleaner, medicine or even food-products.
Some people are as a rule polyglots. Historians diplomats need some
languages for their work. If you want to be a classified specialist you
must learn English, the language of international communication. English
is one of the world languages. It is the language of progressive science
and technology, trade and cultural relations, commerce and business. It
is the universal language of international aviation, shipping and
sports. It is also the major language of diplomacy. Hundreds and
hundreds of books, magazines and newspapers are printed in English, most
of the world’s mail and telephone calls are in English. Half of the
world’s scientific literature is written in English. English is spoken
by more than 350 million people. Geographically, it is the most
widespread language on earth, second after Chinese. It is the official
language of the UK, the USA , of Australia and New Zealand, it is used
as one of the official languages in Canada, the South Africa. Millions
of people study and use English as a foreign language. In our country
English is very popular. It is studied at schools, colleges and
universities. Learning English is not an easy thing. It is a long
process and takes a lot of time and patience. But to know English today
is absolutely necessary for every educated person. I want to know
English because it’s interesting for me to know foreign countries, their
cultures and tradition. English will be of great use in my future
profession connected with computers.

Learning foreign languages

Somebody said: “English is a language that came from nowhere to conquer
the world…” These words are really true and I will prove it. Firstly I
would like to talk to you where English comes from. English is a member
of the West Germanic subgroup of the Germanic branch of Indo-European
language family. Secondly I would like to dwell on some of the chief
literary works written in English language in different periods.
“Beowulf” is the most important poem in old English. It is remarkable
for its sustained grandeur of tone and for the brilliance of its style.
The Canterbury Tales were written by Geoffrey Chaucer, “the father of
English literature”. He added tremendously to the prestige of English
language by using it instead of more fashionable French spoken at that
time. The third is the King James Bible. It exercised enormous influence
on the development of the English language. It remains a classic of
English history. But the most important contribution was made by William
Shakespeare. Shakespeare’s influence on everyday English speech is
great, people all over the world quote Shakespeare. The English language
arrived in Britain on the point of a sword. That is why there are so
many loans in English language. In 1940 Winston Churchill wished to
appeal to the hearts and minds of English-speaking people. It was the
time of Patriotic war and that it why he used the plain bareness for
which Old English is noted. His purpose was to show the independence of
English language and English people. It was his celebrated passage which
helped people to fight. Now I would like to tell you about Standard
English and Regional accents. Received pronunciation is the form of
British English pronunciation used by many educated people in every part
of Britain. It is thought of a standard form and is often used by the
BBC. It is also used in teaching English in many parts of the world. The
King’s of the Queen’s English is a good correct English as it should be
spoken. Accent is the sound of a person’s pronunciation of the language.
It shows where a person comes from and what class he or she belongs to.
Cockney is the way of speaking English and it is known as the London
dialect. Rhyming slang is a way of speaking, ordinarily popular among
cockneys in which a rhyming phrase, or a part of it, is substituted for
a standard word. There is a standard form of the language and some
dialects in our country too. To my mind, every country needs a standard
form of the language because of the contact between people of this
country. But there are a lot of loanwords in every language nowadays.
Every day for example in advertisements we can hear and see new,
incomprehensible, bad words, and they become widespread among the
population. In conclusion I would like to say that now there are more
than 60 countries that speak English as the dominant or official
language. My purpose is to show you why the English is a world language.
The present day world status of English is the result of two factors:
the expansion of British colonial power, which peaked towards the end of
the 19th century, and the emergence of the US as the leading economic
power of the 20th century. English is the chief language of
international business and academic conferences, and the leading
language of international tourism. English is the main language of
popular music, advertising, home computers and video games. Most of the
scientific, technological and academic information in the world is
expressed in English.

Learning foreigner language.

More and more people realize that every educated person should know a
foreigner language. The most popular language now is English. English is
a world language. It’s the language of progressive science and
technology, trade and cultural relation, commerce and business. It’s the
universal language of international aviation, shipping and sports. It is
also the major language of diplomacy. Hundreds and hundreds of books,
magazines and newspapers are printed in English and real all over the
world. 75% of the world’s mail and 60% of the world’s telephone calls
are in English. Half of the world’s scientific literature is written in
English too. English is spoken by more than 350 million people . It is
the official language of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and
Northern Ireland of the United States of America, of Australia and New
Zealand. English is used as one of the official languages in Canada, the
Republic of South Africa and the Irish Republic. It’s also spoken as a
second language speakers in many parts of Asia and Africa. The number of
second language speakers may soon exceed the number of native speakers.
In Russia English is very popular : it is studied at schools, colleges,
universities, and sometimes even at nurse schools. There are also other
languages that are popular in the world. For example Chinese, the first
language in the number of people who speak it, is used by over 1000
million people, it means that out one of every five people in whole
world speaks Chinese. Another popular language is Arabic, which is the
official language of several Asia’s countries ( Iran, Iraq, Syria,
United Arab Emirates and others). Learning a foreign language is not an
easy thing. It is a long and slow process that takes a lot of time and
patience. But to know languages today is absolutely necessary for
everyone. I want to know foreign language because I have always been
interested in foreign countries and their cultures. You know I think
that who doesn’t know a foreign language , doesn’t know his own
language.

Learning languages

The problem of learning languages is very important today. Foreign
languages are socially demanded especially at the present time when the
progress in science and technology has led to an explosion of knowledge
and has contributed to an overflow of information. The total knowledge
of mankind is known to double every seven years. Foreign languages are
needed as the main and most efficient means of information exchange of
the people of our planet. Today English is the language of the world.
Over 350 million people speak it as a mother tongue. The native speakers
of English live in Great Britain, the United States of America,
Australia and New Zealand. English is one of the official languages in
the Irish Republic, Canada, the South African Republic. As a second
language it is used in the former British and US colonies. It is the
major international language for communication in such areas as science,
technology, business and mass entertainment. English is one of the
official languages of the United Nations Organization and other
political organization. It is the language of the literature, education,
modern music, international tourism. Russia is integrating into the
world community and the problem of learning English for the purpose of
communication is espicially urgent today. Learning a foreing language is
not as easy thing. It is a long and slow process that takes a lot of
time and patience. But to know English is absolutely necessary for every
educated person, for every good specialist. It is well known that
reading books in the original , listening to the BBC news, communicating
with the English speaking people will help a lot. When learning a
foreign language you learn the culture and history of the native
speakers. One must work hard to learn any foreign language.

HOUSE OF MY DREAM

Everyone likes dreaming. It helps us to overcome the difficulties of our
daily routine. As a rule, people imagine they have a lot of money, their
own family, happy family and full social life. I’d like to tell you
about the house of my dream. I’d like to have my house abroad. May be in
America, because it’s rather warm there all year round. I want my house
to be near the ocean. I don’t want to have it in town, because there is
little fresh air and a lot of litter on the streets. I’m likely live
there with my husband & my child. I imagine my house has 3 stories. Near
the front it has a facade with columns & steps up to the front door.
There’s also small balcony in my house. The windows are in the shape of
arches. Through them you can see a wonderful view. There are lots of
palm trees and flowers around the house. And there is nothing like
walking in the shade of these trees & listening to the whisper of waves.
The sun is shining, the birds are singing their sweet songs. Oh, it’s
lovely to wake up in the morning in our house & see the sun shining
through the window & hear the far-off plash-plash of the ocean. As you
come through the front door, you find yourself in a large hall with an
open fireplace, which is unusual. One of the doors leads to the living
room. This room faces the south, so it’s very sunny & has a lovely view
of the whole valley. In the middle of this room there’s a thick carpet.
We have little furniture in this room. On the left there’s a sofa &
small table near it, on the right you can see TV set & type recorder.
There are some armchairs in this room. In the living room we spend our
evenings chatting with each other & my child plays with a kitten. Then a
wide staircase takes you to the second floor where there are some
bedrooms. My child’s room is really vast. The wallpaper is very
colorful. Also there are lots o toys for my child to play with. Behind
the house there is a swimming pool & some plastic armchairs. Our house
looks peaceful & calm, & the calmest room is my husband’s study. He’s a
businessman & he likes reading. But as for me I prefer associating with
my friends. We have many different electrical appliances in our house.
They make our life more comfortable. Also we have some people to help
us. They look after the house, grow vegetables in our garden & cook. So
we enjoy having green & fresh food on our dinner table. Our house is
beautiful place to be at any time of the year. In winter it’s warm &
cosy, & in summer there is so much to do outside.
