   Hobby is a favourite occupation of a person in his free time. I have many friends. They are very different and they have different kinds of hobbies.
   One of my girl-friends, for example, likes to knit very much. Another girl-friend of mine spends all her free time sewing things: skirts, blouses, dresses. She makes it nicely and she always looks fine.
   One of my friends likes to make everything with his own hands. He can repair an iron, a radio-set, or a tape-recorder. I think it's a very good hobby.
   Many people are very fond of collecting. Some collect old coins, others collect post-cards. As for me, my hobby is collecting stamps. Now I have 5 albums full of stamps.
   I like to sit at the table in the evening and arrange new stamps in the albums or just look through the stamps. Each stamp has a story to tell about distant countries and new people.
   I see pictures of people, birds and animals which I have never seen. Kings and presidents pass before my eyes and I can follow the history of whole nations.
   My hobby is not only wonderful but is also very useful.


   Хобби — любимое занятие человека в свободное время. У меня есть много друзей. Они совершенно разные, и у них разные хобби.
   Одной из моих подруг, например, очень нравится вязать. Другая моя подруга проводит все свое свободное время за пошивом вещей: юбок, блузок, платьев. Она делает это хорошо, и поэтому всегда прекрасно выглядит.
   Одному из моих друзей нравится делать все собственными руками. Он может починить утюг, радио или магнитофон. Я думаю, что это — очень хорошее хобби.
   Много людей любят коллекционировать. Некоторые собирают старые монеты, другие — открытки. Что касается меня, мое хобби — собирать марки. Сейчас у меня 5 альбомов с марками.
   Мне нравится сидеть вечером за столом и рассматривать их. У каждой марки есть своя история о далеких странах и новых людях.
   Я вижу изображения людей, птиц и животных, которых я никогда не видел. Короли и президенты проходят перед моими глазами, и я могу проследить историю целых наций.
   Мое хобби не только замечательное, но еще и полезное.

The Book-bag   Some people read for instruction, and some for pleasure, but not a few read from habit. I belong to that company. Let us admit that reading with us is just a drug that we cannot get along without.   Books are necessary to me and I never travel far without enough reading matter.   But when I am starting on a long journey, the problem is really great. I have learnt my lesson. Once I f

English Meals    The English proverb says: every cook praises his own broth. One can not say English cookery is bad, but there is not a lot of variety in it in comparison with European cuisine. The English are very particular about their meals. The usual meals in England are breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner.   Breakfast time is between seven and nine a.m. A traditional English breakfast is a very

My Friend    I have a lot of friends. Most of them are my former schoolmates. But my bosom friend is Lena. She is 16. Lena isn't very tall, but she is pretty in her own way.   She has red curly hair and a turn-up nose. Lena wears spectacles and when spring comes there are plenty of freckles on her cheeks, forehead and nose. But all that doesn't make her plain or ugly. I like Lena because she is we

She was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in a family of the president of the Atlanta Historical Society.   All the family was interested in American history and she grew up in an atmosphere of stones about the Civil War.   After graduat
Saint Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was founded in 1703 by Peter the Great as the window to Europe. Thousands of workmen were brought from all parts of Russia to build a new city on the swampy land at the mouth of the Neva River. Peter the Great was in a hurry. The work was fast and hard, and workmen dropped dead by hundreds.
