The hardest thing for me is to tell something objective about myself but I will try. So let me introduce myself! My name is Peter. Peter Golubev. I come from Novosibirsk, the city in the east of Russia. Nineteen years ago my parents decided to call me Petya. I like my name, it means “stone” or “rock” in Greek. Next winter I will be 20.
My weekday starts at 6.30 in the morning when my alarm-clock rings. I am not an early bird, so it takes me a couple of minutes before I get out of my bed, especially in winter. I leave home early, at 8.00 to avoid the rush-hour traffic as I start my work at 9 o’clock.
1. An elephant is a huge animal that lives in Africa and Asia. Elephants are grey, they have two big ears, two long teeth (tusks) and a long nose (a trunk). They eat leaves, plants, fruit and roots. Elephants are mammals.
All rooms in my house are very nice but most of all I love my room. I use it both as a bedroom and a study. It is a perfect place for my studies and rest. It is cosy and light. Although my room is the smallest one, it has some advantages.
We spend much time in our classroom and it’s very important for us to keep it clean and nice. Our classroom is on the ground floor of the school building. There are three large windows in it, so the room is quite light. The windows face our school sports ground. We grow and water a lot of beautiful plants on the window-sills.
My birthday is one of my favourite holidays. It is a wonderful chance to spend the time with your family and friends, with the people who really love you and remember you. On this day you are in the centre of their attention and you hear lots of warm and hearty words and pleasant compliments. When you check your mail you find many greetings from your classmates and relatives. Your telephone keeps ringing all day long and you are very happy to answer the phone.
I am very fond of animals. I love looking after them because they give me only pleasant and positive emotions. And quite often they behave better than a lot of human beings.
My daily routine starts pretty early, at 6 a.m. I get up and go outside to do some exercise or ride a bike. When I finish I go home, have a shower and get dressed. My clothes and my bag are always ready from the night before.
My family is quite big. We are five: my mother, my father, my younger sister, my grandfather and I.
It is often not easy to speak about myself but I shall try. My name is Kira, I’m 16 years old. I was born in a Russian town of Kirov which is located on the Vyatka river, to the west of the Ural mountains. I live in my native city, in a comfortable flat with my parents and an elder brother. My mother is a housewife, my father works as a supervising manager at a big plant and my brother is a student.
Sport in My Life
Sport has always been the essential part of a healthy mankind life. To my mind it helps us to keep our body strong, active and fit. And it also makes our personality disciplined, organized and optimistic. Fortunately sport is getting more popular in our country. Most people go to the gym several times a week, they are keen on jogging, playing football, hockey, volleyball, basketball or tennis. Quite a lot of people go regularly to swimming-pools, ski-centers and skating-rinks.
My favorite film
Going to the cinema is one of my favorite ways of spending leisure time. I always enjoy watching a beautiful and high-quality movie on a big screen, surrounded by impressive sound. Of course it really matters what kind of film is on, as I prefer good comedies, actions, thrillers, fantasy and science-fiction films. And I’m not fond of dramas, westerns or horror films.
My best friend’s name is Olga. I made friends with her a few years ago in a fitness club. We are of the same age and we have a great deal in common.
