My Friend Marina

   I would like to tell you about my friends. I have a lot of them, but my close friend is Marina. She is my school-mate. We have been studying together in one form all the eleven years of our school-life.
   She is 17. We have nothing in common in appearance. Marina is pretty in her own way. She is thin and slender, not very tall. Her hair is red and straight, her face is oval and her forehead is high. She has a turn-up nose and beautiful green eyes with bushy eyelashes.
   Marina is as good as gold. Warm-hearted and gentle, quiet and well-bred. Everyone loves her. She is always well dressed and neat. She is always ready to help people, when they are in need.
   Marina is the only daughter of her parents and they adore her. Nevertheless she is not selfish. I like to be around her, because she knows a lot of interesting stories, funny jokes.
   She is fond of reading. Marina goes in for sports. She plays tennis and swims. She does well at school and it seems to me that all the subjects come equally easy to her.
   This year she is leaving school and has chosen medicine as future profession. I hope she will make a good doctor. We always meet at the weekends. We discuss books, listen to the music or visit our friends. I always enjoy the time spent together.
   I am happy to have such a friend as Marina. I am sure we shall be friends forever.

Моя подруга Марина

   Я хотела бы рассказать вам о своих друзьях. У меня их много, но самый мой близкий друг — Марина. Она — моя одноклассница. Мы учимся вместе, в одном классе все одиннадцать лет.
   Марине — 17 лет. Внешне мы абсолютно не похожи. Марина по-своему красива. Она тоненькая и стройная, не очень высокая. У нее рыжие прямые волосы, овальное лицо с высоким лбом. У нее курносый носик и красивые зеленые глаза с пушистыми ресницами.
   Марина — просто золото. Сердечная и мягкая, спокойная и хорошо воспитанная. Она всем нравится. Она всегда со вкусом и опрятно одета. Марина всегда готова помочь людям, когда они в этом нуждаются.
   Марина — единственная дочь у своих родителей, они ее обожают. Тем не менее Марина не эгоистична. Мне нравится быть рядом с Мариной, потому что она знает много интересных историй, смешных шуток.
   Ей нравится читать. Марина занимается спортом: она играет в теннис и плавает. Она хорошо учится в школе, и мне кажется, что все предметы даются ей одинаково легко.
   В этом году она заканчивает школу и выбрала медицину своей будущей профессией. Я надеюсь, что из нее выйдет хороший врач. Мы всегда встречаемся в выходные дни. Мы обсуждаем книги, слушаем музыку и ходим в гости к друзьям. Мне всегда нравится время, проведенное нами вместе.
   Я счастлива, что у меня есть такой друг, как Марина. Я уверена, что мы будем друзьями всегда.

British Cuisine   Some people criticize English food. They say it's unimaginable, boring, tasteless, it's chips with everything and totally overcooked vegetables.
