My Favourite Room

   My favourite room is our kitchen. Perhaps the kitchen is the most important room in many houses, but it is particularly so in our house because it's not only where we cook and eat, but it's also the main meeting place for the family and friends.
   I have so many happy memories of times spent there: special occasions such as homecomings, Christmas dinner, sitting down to read the newspaper with a steaming hot mug of coffee.
   Whenever we have a party all, people go to the kitchen. It always ends up the fullest and noisiest room in the house.
   So what does this special room look like? It's quite big, but not huge. Its big enough to have a good-sized rectangular table in the centre. There is a large window above the sink, which looks out onto two apple trees in the garden. The cooker is at one end, and above it there is a wooden cupboard .
   At the other end is a wall with a notice-board, which tells the story of our lives, past, present, and future, in words and pictures: a school photo of the children, a postcard from Auntie, the menu from Chinese restaurant, a wedding invitation for next Saturday. All our world is there for everyone to read!
   All our friends come straight into the kitchen and join in whatever is happening there. The kettle goes immediately and then we all sit round the table, drinking tea.
   Without doubt some of the happiest times of my life have been spent in our kitchen.

Моя любимая комната

   Моя любимая комната — наша кухня. Возможно, кухня — самая важная комната во многих домах, но это особенно касается нашего дома, потому что она является не только местом, где мы готовим еду и кушаем, но это также главное место, где собирается вся семья и друзья.
   У меня так много счастливых воспоминаний о времени, проведенном здесь: торжественные случаи, такие как чей-то приезд, Рождественские обеды, чтение газеты с горячей чашкой кофе, из которой идет пар.
   Всякий раз, когда у нас вечеринка, все идут на кухню. В ней всегда шумно и полно людей.
   Итак, как выглядит эта особенная комната? Она довольно большая, но не огромная. Достаточно большая для того, чтобы в центре поместился добротный прямоугольный стол. Над раковиной большое окно, из которого видны две яблони в саду. В одном конце расположена кухонная плита, а над ней — деревянный шкафчик.
   В другом конце — стена с доской для объявлений, которая показывает историю нашей жизни — прошлого, настоящего и будущего — в словах и фотографиях: школьные фотографии детей, открытка от тетушки, меню из китайского ресторана, свадебное приглашение на следующую субботу. Весь наш мир собран там для того, чтобы каждый мог его увидеть!
   Все наши друзья идут прямо на кухню и принимают участие во всем, что там происходит. Тут же ставится чайник, затем все мы садимся за стол, пьем чай.
   Без сомнения, некоторые самые счастливые мгновения моей жизни были проведены на нашей кухне.

The Hermitage   One of the world-wide known museums is the Hermitage. The word "Hermitage" means "a place of solitude".

Family Life in Britain   A "typical" British family used to consist of mother, father and two children. But in recent years there have been many changes in family life. For example, since the law made it easier to get a divorce, the number of divorces has increased. That's why 24% of British children live with only one parent, usually their mother.   The contemporary British child doesn't have a l
Choosing an Occupation    I originally became interested in the law during my 9th form when I realized that my skills as a writer, speaker, and leader — as well as my powers of logic — would probably serve me well in a legal career.   That is why I entered an optional class where I could have lessons on law twice a week. All that I have done and experienced in my studying of the basic aspects of t
