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 (old Bolkonsky), 0. Tabakov (Nikolai), I. Skobzeva (Helena). Borodino struggle, hunting, the first ball of Natasha made a great impression on me.
   My favourite film is "The Fate of a Man". This film is excellent. It is difficult to find other words to describe it. It has enormous vigour and delicacy, it is full of purity and hope.
   "...A man is caught in the storm of war and loses everything. Black clouds surround him, and -yet he finds strength to bear up with it all; he finds strength to adopt a child, a destitute, helpless creature..."
   All the great events and the feelings aroused are depicted with taste, tact and restraint. Тo wish to draw attention particularly to the extraordinary performance of the boy.
   Even if the film has no other merits, the child scenes, so subtle, profound and lifelike, so full of tragic vigour — these scenes alone would win Bondarchuk the reputation of a great director.

Мой любимый фильм

   Обычно мы смотрим фильмы либо в кинотеатре либо по телевизору. Но время от времени я все же хожу в кинотеатр. Мой любимый фильм — "Война и мир". Сценарий к этому фильму был написан С. Бондарчуком и В. Соловьевым. Балерина из Ленинграда (ныне Санкт-Петербург) Людмила Савельева сыграла главную роль. Она сыграла ее замечательно.
   Остальные роли сыграли А. Кторов (старый Болконский), О. Табаков (Николай), И. Скобцева (Элен). Битва под Бородино, охота, первый бал Наташи произвели на меня большое впечатление.
   Мой любимый фильм также "Судьба человека". Это фильм замечательный. Трудно подобрать другие слова, чтобы его описать. В нем сочетаются огромная энергия и нежность, он полон чистоты и надежды.
   "...Человек попадает в пучину войны и теряет все. Черные тучи окружают его, и все же он находит силы выстоять; он находит силы приютить обездоленного ребенка, беззащитное существо..."
   Все большие события и великие чувства, которые появляются, изображены со вкусом, тактом и сдержанностью. Хотелось бы обратить внимание особенно на необычайную игру мальчика.
   Даже если бы фильм не имел других достоинств, сцены с ребенком, такие искусные, глубокие и жизнелюбивые, полны трагической силы, — только одни эти сцены могли бы создать Бондарчуку репутацию великого режиссера.

My Room   We live in three-room flat. The room I like best in our flat is mine.   I use my room as a study and a bedroom. It is very nice and cosy. There isn't much furniture in it, only the most necessary pieces. The built-in furniture doesn't take much space in the room.   On the left there is my bed and desk. The desk has a lot of drawers where I keep my text-books, notes, pens, pencils and oth
Computers in Our Life    Computer addicts are the minority of computer users but there is no doubt that more and more young people are computer literate. Computer studies is a subject in many schools and many young people have personal computers. About one in three hundred computer owners spend almost all their time using computers.   Ninety six per cent of them are males of all ages. All of them
Millions of people all over the world are fond of sports and games. Sport helps people to stay in good shape, keeps them fit and makes them more organized and better disciplined in their daily activities.

Yury Gagarin   On April 12, 1961, Yury Gagarin made history by being the first human to orbit the earth.   As a precaution, engineers at the Soviet Academy of Sciences had an onboard computer, as well as mission control steer the craft, "Vostok 1". They did this because the feared that being in the weightlessness of space, you might be disabled or not be able to move very much. He wouldn't need an

On Learning English   Learning English is like learning to swim or learning to play ball. We learn to swim by swimming, to play ball by playing ball, and to speak English by speaking English.   A good ball-player spends hours, days, months, and even years practising. The more he practises, the better he plays. He has to learn to meet the situations of the game as they arise and react to them immed
The Olympic Games    The Olympic Games have a very long history. They began in 777 ВС in Greece and took place every four years for nearly twelve centuries at Olympia. They included many different kinds of sports: running, boxing, wrestling, etc. All the cities in Greece sent their best athletes to Olympia to compete in the Games.   For the period of the Games all the wars stopped. So the Olympic
Imagine that you've just turned 16 and your parents bought you a brand new Mustang. You're cruising on the street at approximately 25 miles per hour. So maybe you're not breaking the speed limit, but everyone's staring. You feel the light breeze through your hair. Then you're in the air, 12 feet high. Finally, you land on your back and come this (gesture 6 in.) close to cracking your skull. What h
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

My Plans for the Future    When you leave school you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. It's not an easy task to make the right choice of a job. I have known for a long time that leaving school is the beginning of my independent life, the beginning of a far more serious examination of my abilities and character.   I have asked myself a lot of times: "What do I want
