My Household Duties

   I live with my mother and father. I like to help them. Every Sunday I clean my room. I take the vacuum — cleaner and clean the carpets. I sweep the floor, dust the sofa and the chairs, I try to dust the furniture in a proper way.
   We have got many flowers at home. Twice a week I water them. I like flowers very much.
   But best of all I like to lay the table. I do it carefully. I spread the table cloth and then I put out table — mats to protect the table from hot plates and dishes. A small mat for each guest and larger ones for the hot dishes. I put out the cutlery, which clean and polish every week, and I sharpen the carving-knife.
  The cutlery is kept in a drawer in the sideboard. The wine-glasses are kept on shelves in the sideboard. I take out of the drawer in the sideboard all the cutlery — a fish-knife and fork for the fish, a large knife and fork for the meat, a small knife for the butter and fruit-knife for the dessert. Then there is a pudding-spoon and a fork for the sweet, and a soup-spoon for the soup.
  I put the knives and the soup-spoon on the right-hand side and the forks on the left, except the pudding-spoon and fork which I put across the top. Then I put the serving — spoons and forks, the carving-knife and fork, the bread-board and a knife to cut the bread.
   On the left of each guest I put a small plate for bread and on his right a wine-glass if we are having wine. And I am ready for the guests to come.

Мои обязанности по дому

   Я живу с мамой и папой. Мне нравится им помогать. Каждое воскресенье я убираю в комнате. Я беру пылесос и чищу ковры. Я подметаю пол, застилаю диван и стулья, стараюсь хорошо стереть пыль с мебели.
   У нас дома много цветов. Дважды в неделю я их поливаю. Мне очень нравятся цветы.
   Но больше всего я люблю накрывать на стол. Я делаю это аккуратно. Я расстилаю скатерть и ставлю подставки, чтобы защитить стол от горячих тарелок и блюд. Для каждого гостя ставится большая и маленькая подставка для горячих блюд. Я выкладываю столовые приборы, которые мою и чищу каждую неделю, и точу нож для разделки мяса.
   Столовые приборы хранятся в ящике серванта. Я достаю из ящика серванта все столовые приборы — нож и вилку для рыбы, большой нож и вилку для мяса, маленький нож для масла и нож для десерта. Затем ложку и вилку для сладкого и суповую ложку.
   Я кладу ножи и ложки для супа справа, а вилки слева, кроме ложки и вилки для сладкого, которые я кладу выше. Потом я достаю вспомогательные вилки и ложки, нож для разделки мяса и вилку, дощечку и нож, чтобы нарезать хлеб.
   Слева от каждого гостя я ставлю маленькую тарелку для хлеба, а справа бокал для вина, если мы его пьем. И я готова к приходу гостей.

Sport in Great Britain    Sport plays such a large part in British life that many idioms in the English language have come from the world of sport.

A lot of people support their local clubs at matches on Saturday afternoons or watch the matches on te
A giant among states, vast Texas was once a sovereign nation. During 300 years of rule by Spain, it had sprawled like a sleeping giant, its riches undeveloped and its colonization limited to a few missions, supported by presidios (military posts). When Mexico became an independent country in 1821, Texas became a Mexican state and new settlers from the United States were welcomed. The large influx

Television    Television, also called TV, is one of our most important means of communication. It brings moving pictures and sounds from around the world into millions of homes.   The name «Television» comes from Greek word meaning «far», and a Latin word meaning «to see», so the word «television» means «to see far».   About three-fourths of the 1500 TV stations in the US are commercial stations.
About Myself    I was born on the 3rd of June 1991 in Moscow. Like many other children when I was a child I went to a kindergarten.   At the age of 7 I went to school.

It was also difficult to make some people
