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 height, strong in body, light-haired with light blue eyes. Usually he is the life and soul of the party. Victor is fond of foreign languages. Not so long ago he decided to study English. He worked on it persistently, and now he speaks English well.
  Victor also likes music. He is a good singer, he plays mouth organ and dances better than Michael Jackson.
   Dmitri is rather slim, not very tall, his hair is brown, his eyes are grey. Usually he wears T-shirts with emblems of football clubs, such as "Dinamo" (Moscow) and "Zenit"(St. Petersburg). He is an enthusiastic football fan.
   Dmitri is an extremely sociable person. By means of e-mail he corresponds with many people from different countries. They discuss political and economical issues. Dmitri is also interested in philosophy. He often cites Confucius's utterances.
   My friends are very interesting to talk to. Both of them possess great charm, they are both very clever and educated guys, they are open-hearted and social, well-mannered and tactful. People usually like them. I'm happy to have such friends as Victor and Dmitri.

Мои друзья

   Живя в обществе, в жизни мы встречаем множество людей. Мы общаемся со всеми этими людьми, но относимся к каждому из них по-разному. Обычно я разделяю людей, которых знаю, на знакомых, хороших знакомых и близких друзей. Я хочу рассказать вам о своих друзьях. Это Виктор Данилов и Дмитрий Петров.
   Виктор — добродушный парень среднего роста, крепкого телосложения, светловолосый, с голубыми глазами. Обычно он — душа компании. Виктор увлекается иностранными языками. Недавно он решил изучать английский язык. Он много занимался, и теперь хорошо говорит по-английски.
   Еще Виктор любит музыку. Он хорошо поет, играет на губной гармошке и танцует лучше, чем Майкл Джексон.
   Дмитрий — стройный, не очень высокий шатен с серыми глазами. Обычно он носит футболки с эмблемами футбольных клубов, таких как «Динамо» (Москва) и «Зенит» (Санкт-Петербург). Он страстный футбольный болельщик.
   Дмитрий очень общительный человек. Он переписывается по электронной почте со многими людьми из разных стран. Они обсуждают политические и экономические вопросы. А еще Дмитрий интересуется философией. Он часто цитирует высказывания Конфуция.
   Мои друзья — интересные собеседники. Они оба очень хорошие, остроумные и образованные ребята, открытые и общительные, с хорошими манерами, тактичные. Они нравятся людям. Я счастлив, что у меня такие друзья, как Виктор и Дмитрий.

My Day off    I go to school five days a week, so I have two days off — Saturday and Sunday (I'm lucky, because some other pupils have the only one day off).
