Music in Our Life

   I love music, I think people can not live without it. The first thing I do in the morning I switch on my tape — recorder.
   We can hear music everywhere: in the streets, in the shops, on TV, over the radio, in the cars, in the parks, everywhere. I think it's really doesn't matter what kind of music you prefer: rock, pop, classical, jazz. A lot of people are fond of music. They buy tapes, go to the concerts, visit Concert Halls and Opera Theatres.
   I enjoy listening music because it reflects my moods and emotions. Very often when I'm blue, I play my favourite merry songs and feel much better.
   Sometimes I attend music halls and the concerts, when popular groups and singers are there. I like watching music programs on TV. I like to know more and more about popular talented groups and singers I like.
  One wall of my room is covered with posters of "Bon Jovi", "Scorpions", "Roxette", Russian singers Agutin, Sjutkin, Linda and others. Some people go to musics schools, they play different musical instruments, sing in the chorus, try to compose music.
   Unfortunately there are so many ungifted singers on the stages, that it makes me sad. To have a good producer doesn't mean to have good ears and voice. I think that only talented people can claim to be singers.

Музыка в нашей жизни

   Я люблю музыку, и мне кажется, что люди не могут жить без нее. Первое, что я делаю утром — это включаю магнитофон.
   Мы можем слышать музыку повсюду: на улицах, в магазинах, по телевизору и радио, в машинах, парках — везде. Я думаю, что не имеет никакого значения, какую музыку вы предпочитаете: рок, поп, классическую, джаз. Многим людям нравится музыка. Они покупают кассеты, ходят на концерты, посещают филармонии и оперные театры.
   Мне очень нравится слушать музыку, потому что она отражает мои настроения и эмоции. Очень часто, когда мне грустно, я включаю свои любимые веселые песни и чувствую себя намного лучше.
   Иногда я посещаю концертные залы, когда мои любимые группы или исполнители там выступают. Мне нравится смотреть музыкальные передачи по телевизору. Мне нравится узнавать больше и больше о популярных талантливых группах и исполнителях, которые мне нравятся.
   Одна стена в моей комнате оклеена плакатами "Бон Джови", "Скорпионз", "Роксет". плакатами с изображением российских исполнителей Агутина, Сюткина, Линды.
   Некоторые ходят в музыкальные школы. Они играют на различных музыкальных инструментах, поют в хоре, пытаются сочинять музыку.
   К сожалению, на нашей эстраде сейчас так много бездарных исполнителей, что меня это огорчает. Иметь хорошего продюсера — еще не значит иметь хороший слух или голос. Мне кажется, что только талантливые люди имеют право называться певцами.

The State Power System in the Russian Federation   In 1992 — shortly after the Soviet Union broke up — Russia established a transitional (temporary) government headed by Boris N. Yeltsin. Yeltsin had been elected president of the R.S.F.S.R. in 1991. After the break-up of the Soviet Union, Yeltsin continued to serve as president of Russia. In December 1993, Russia adopted a new constitution that es
My Friends    As we live in society, we meet a lot of people during our lives. We communicate with all these people, but our attitudes towards each of these people are different. Usually I classify people I know as acquaintances, friends and close friends. I'm going to tell you about the best friends of mine. They are Victor Danilov and Dmitri Petrov.   Victor is a good-natured guy of medium heigh
Appearance: Beauty   How important is your appearance? Although everyone wants to tf good-looking, are beautiful people always happier people? For example, must be a problem to be a really beautiful woman, because some men ma: be more interested in looking at you than talking to you.   They think of you as a picture rather than a person. There are also some people who think that women who are exce
London is one of the largest and most interesting cities in the world. Greater London covers an area of about 600 square miles and has the population of nearly 9 million people. In London today, there still stand numerous landmarks reminding us of the town, as it was five or six centuries ago. The old town that stood until the Great Fire of 1666 was surrounded by a wall. Inside the wall there were
My Favourite Film    Usually we see films either in the cinema or on the TV. But from time to time I go to the cinema. My favourite film is "War and Peace". The script of the film was written by Sergey Bondar-chuk and W. Solowjew. The Leningrad (now Sankt Petersburg) ballet-dancer Ludmila Saweljiewa played the main part. She played this role wonderfully.   The other parts were played by A. Ktorov
My Favourite Writer (M. Lermontov)   One of Russia's most celebrated poets of all times, Michael Lermontov was born in Moscow in the family of a nobleman. He spent his childhood and youth in Tarckany, in the province of Penza.   In 1830 Lermontov entered the Moscow University, but very soon he had to leave it. Then he entered St. Petersburg School of Cavalry Cadets. He finished it and served in th
New Zealand, an independent state and a member of the Commonwealth, is situated south-east from Australia. The country consists of three large islands and also many small islands. New Zealand is a mountainous country. New Zealand's rivers are short. The climate in New Zealand is warm and the greater part of the country is well watered. There are good forests of evergreen trees and large areas are
Age   "How old are you?" It's a simple question, and there's usually a simple answer: 'sixteen years old', 'twenty years old', 'fifty-five', etc. But if someone is described as 'young' or 'middle-aged' or 'old', then how old are they? It's difficult to know because these words have different meanings for different people.   Except for the word teenager, which describes young men whose age are betw
The British Isles haven't always been a separate part of Europe. Long time ago Britain was a part of the European continent. Then about ten thousand years ago during the end of the last Ice Age, when the climate grew warmer, new rivers and sees were formed Europe slowly moved into its present shape. The ancient people of Britain were simple hunters and ate flesh of animals fruits, nuts, honey. The
Cultural Life in Moscow Arts. Museums and Libraries   Moscow has long been a centre of Russian and world culture. The Bolshoi Theatre presents operas and ballets. The Bolshoi Ballet has become internationally known and admired. Dancers from all over the country are trained at the Bolshoi Theatres school.   The Moscow State Symphony and other orchestras perform at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Mo
Women   Fat women with flabby, double chins. Moon-faced, pop-eyed women in little flat hats. Women with starchy faces and thin vermilion lips.   Man-shy, suspicious women, shrinking into their clothes every time a wet, caressing eye alights upon them. Women soured and robbed of their souls by Christian Endeavour. Women who would probably be members of Conference if they were men.   Grey-haired, mi
British Homes   There are 22 million homes in Britain — big homes and small homes, old cottages and new buildings, houses and flats. (Americans say "apartment" but British people say "flat"). Many British people love old houses and these are often more expensive than modern ones. They also love gardening and you will see gardens everywhere you go: in towns, villages and out in the country.   Some
