My Last Summer Holidays

   Pupils at school have their vacations four times a year — in winter, in autumn, in spring, and in summer.
   As for me, the best holidays are in summer. All people enjoy summer holidays very much. It is a great pleasure to have a rest after a whole year of hard work or study. People like to travel during summer holidays.
   Some people go abroad to see new countries, some people prefer to go to the country-side to enjoy country-life far from noise and fuss of big cities.
   Some people like to spend their holidays in cities, visiting theatres and museums. But a great number of people go to the seaside in summer.
   I like to have rest at the seaside best of all. I do not like crowds when I am on holidays. My parents and I always have our holidays on the coast. Sea and sunshine, that is what we look forward to every summer. Usually we go to a holiday camp.
   Last year we spent our holidays in such a camp. Each day was full of small joys.
   We swam in the sea, lay in the sun, played different games and had a wonderful time. It was a nice rest. If everything is OK this year we will go to the seaside again.

Мои последние летние каникулы

   Каникулы у школьников четыре раза в год — зимой, осенью, весной и летом.
   Мне кажется, что лучшие каникулы — летние. Все люди наслаждаются отпусками. Это большое удовольствие — отдыхать после целого года тяжелой работы и учебы. Во время летних отпусков людям нравится путешествовать.
   Некоторые уезжают за границу, чтобы увидеть новые страны, некоторые предпочитают поехать в деревню, чтобы наслаждаться сельской жизнью, далекой от шума и суеты больших городов.
   Некоторым людям нравится проводить свои отпуска в городах, посещая театры и музеи. Но огромное количество людей едет летом на побережье моря.
   Больше всего мне нравится отдыхать на море. На каникулах мы с родителями всегда едем к морю. Море и солнце — именного этого мы с нетерпением ждем каждое лето. Обычно мы едем в лагерь для отдыхающих.
   В прошлом году мы провели свой отпуск в таком лагере. Каждый день был полон маленьких радостей.
   Мы плавали в море, загорали на солнце, играли в различные игры и замечательно провели время. Это был хороший отдых. Если в этом году все будет хорошо, мы поедем на побережье снова.

On Learning English   Learning English is like learning to swim or learning to play ball. We learn to swim by swimming, to play ball by playing ball, and to speak English by speaking English.   A good ball-player spends hours, days, months, and even years practising.

My Daily RoutineAs a rule, I get up at half past six. I put on my dressing-gown, go into bathroom and turn on the bath taps. Good health is better than wealth, so I do my morning exercises.

Jack London   I have to admit that I'm fond of reading. I like to read books about the history of our country, about famous people and adventures. Literature means much in my life. It helps to form the character and the world outlook, to understand life better. Books teach us to be honest, modest, and courageous. They help us to feel compassion for weak people.   Jack London became my favourite wr
