My Friends

   I have a lot of friends, but the best friend of mine is Irina. She has blue eyes, a round face, fair hair and a broad smile. She is short and slim. I have known her for a long time, since our first school years. But we became true friends four years ago.
    We have much in common: we like English and psychology, sport and dancing. We are looking at this world in the same way and first estimate a person's mind, their kindness. We don't understand meanness and treachery. For many years we have been sitting at the same desk: Irina and me.
   But it's only recollections now. On a May morning the last bell rang for us for the last time and in the farewell waltz the last school ball was dancing. Irina chose the profession of psychologist and handed in the application for admittance to the institute. She finished school excellently and she won't have any problems with the admittance, I hope.
   We shall study at different institutes and, of course, we won't see each other very often. But at weekends I'll come to her place. Irina has wonderful parents. We have a good time together. I think that we shan't stop going to the gym at school and we'll often meet our school friends.
   I also have a pen-friend. Her name's Vika. She lives in Moscow. Vika is a model. She has an oval face, green eyes, straight nose and full red lips. She is rather tall and slim. She has long, curly brown hair. We spend a lot of time together.
   I love my friends and I think they are my true friends.

Мои друзья

   У меня много друзей, но самая лучшая подруга — Ира. У нее голубые глаза, круглое лицо, светлые волосы и открытая улыбка. Она маленькая и худенькая. Я знаю ее давно, с первых школьных лет. Но мы стали настоящими друзьями четыре года назад.
   У нас много общего: увлечение английским и психологией, спортом и танцами. Мы во многом одинаково смотрим на мир, ценя в людях прежде всего ум, доброту. Мы не понимаем предательства и подлости. Много лет мы сидели за одной партой: Ира и я.
   Теперь это уже воспоминания. Майским утром для нас в последний раз прозвенел школьный звонок и в прощальном вальсе закружил выпускной бал. Ира выбрала профессию психолога и сдала документы в институт. Школу она закончила на "отлично", и поэтому особых проблем с поступлением, я надеюсь, у нее не будет.
   Учиться мы будем в разных вузах и, конечно, видеться будем реже. Но по выходным я буду приходить к ней в гости. У Иры замечательные родители. Мы проводим время хорошо. Я думаю, мы не оставим наших занятий в школьном тренажерном зале и часто будем встречаться со школьными друзьями.
   У меня также есть подруга по переписке. Ее зовут Вика. Она живет в Москве. Вика — модель. У нее овальное лицо, зеленые глаза, прямой нос и полные красные губы. Она довольно высокая и худая. У нее длинные волнистые каштановые волосы. Мы хорошо проводим время вместе.
   Я люблю своих подруг и знаю, что они настоящие друзья.

Sport in the USA    Americans play tennis, hockey and most other international sports but they do not play football in the same way as the rest of the world. The players can run with the ball, touch and push each other. Players wear special clothes for American football with helmets on their heads, because the game can be dangerous.   Like international football teams, American teams have eleven p
Australia is a large country lying between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Australia is an island, like Britain, but unlike Britain it is vast. It is, in fact, nearly twenty-five times as large as the British Isles. Its area is about 8,000,000 square km. The population of Australia is about 18 mln. Most of Australia is semi-desert. People cannot live where is no water, and so most of people in Aust
The Future of the Internet   Everywhere we go, we hear about the Internet. It's on television, in magazines, newspapers, and in schools. One might think that this network of millions of computers around the globe is as fast and captivating as television, but with more and more users logging on everyday and staying on longer and longer, this «Information Superhighway» could be perhaps more correctl
Canada is a vast country, bigger than the United States, bigger than the continent of Australia. It is in fact one of the world’s largest countries. Its area is about 10 mln sq km. As Canada extends for thousands of miles from the Arctic Ocean to the United States and from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, all kinds of weather conditions and scenery are to be found there. The population of
Russia has always been a great agricultural country. Russian agriculture produces almost all the farm crops known in the world. The total area under cultivation is largely occupied by grain crops such as wheat, maize, barley, rye, oats, etc. The rest is occupied by potatoes and other vegetables, legumes, fruits and industrial crops. In the orchards and fruit gardens one can see plums and apples, p
The history of Moscow began in 1147, and since then Moscow has always had a leading position in the life of the whole country. It is the political, cultural, scientific centre of Russia.

The School I would Like   The school I would like would have a swimming pool.   I'd have one for the first and second years and also for the third and fourth years. The playgrounds would be separate, one for the young children and the other for the senior forms. A wall would be separating them and there would be a door from one playground to the other.   The classrooms would have carpets instead o
Introducing Myself   There is a saying that if you want something to be done well, do it yourself. So, I am following this wise saying and would like to introduce myself.   My first name is Sergey, my family name is Kravenko and my second name is Ytirievich.   But in the beginning, I would like to represent my family and parents. Actually my family isn't large. My family consists of my father, mot
English as a World Language1. Today English is the language of the world.2. It is only in the course of the last hundred years that English has become a world language.3.

In my opinion family is one of the most important things in one's life. Almost all our life we live within a family. There are five of us in the family: My father - Iliy Nikolaevich, my mother Vera Pavlovna, my elder brother Michael and the youngest child in our family my ten-year old sister Olga. I think it would be right if I begin with my parents. They have been married for 20 years now. They m
