My name is … . I’m a pupil of the 9th
form of the secondary school #****. Our school gives general education. My class used to be a specialized humanitarian class. We have special programs in Russian, Russian Literature and History. I always liked social sciences and I enjoy staying here.
I’m fifteen. I’m tall, slim, dark-haired young lady. I’m the only child in my family and I’m very upset of this. I would like to have a sister or a brother.
But I don’t feel alone: I have many friends in our school. We spend o lot of time together, we walk, play badminton and computer and just chatter.
I’m fond of reading and playing computer games. I like adventure books, I’ve read most of Alexander Dumas novels. Best of all I liked “The Three Musqueteers” and “The Black Tulip”. At the present time I’m reading the detective stories of Sydney Sheldon.
I like cooking. I can make pizza and sweet small cakes. My mother says that I do it better than she does.
I’m very active and like sports. I like to play tennis, badminton, to ride a bicycle and to swim. My new hobby is roller-skating and we have a lot of fun with my friends.
Choosing A Career.
There are a lot of professions and it is difficult to make the right choice. I have made my choice: I ‘m going to be manager of tourism. When I was a little girl I dreamed to be a pilot. I wanted to see the whole world. I was going to travel around the world, to see new countries, visit new places of interest and to make new friends. But later I knew that there are a lot of opportunities to see the world.
You can be a diplomat, a geographer, a sailor or a tour-manager.
I think that manager of tourism is a very good job. They are working with different people in different countries in various hotels and resorts.
You can work in an office and sell tour-vouchers or you may be a representative of Russian tour operator in a foreign country and work with tourists as a guide and translator. I decided to be a manager of tourism while I was traveling with my parents.
So I do my best to get to that dream. I learn computer, English, Russian and geography. I know that there are special faculties of tourism and hotel management in Moscow Universities and Academies. I’ll try to enter one of them after school.
We live in the modern world and you can’t imagine an educated person who doesn’t know any foreign language. It is especially important nowadays. Some people learn languages because they need them in their work, others travel abroad.
English is a widely spoken language all over the world. You can hear it everywhere: in a street, in shops and restaurants, in offices. You don’t need to know Japanese when you go to Japan, or French when you visit Paris. English will help you to understand each other.
A modern engineer or even a worker deals with instruments and machines from other countries and must be able to read the instructions, which are usually written in English. Computer programs and games, most of Internet pages are also written in English. Science magazines are mostly published in English and scientific and business conferences are held in English as well. Diplomats and militaries use English to solve their problems.
Besides, the knowledge of English helps to know more about the countries, read many books in the original and to make new friends.
That’s why all pupils should master their English to become good specialist in any branch.
It is a pleasure to look at a strong, athletic man and slim beautiful lady.
It is known that healthy people live longer and their career is more successful. To look well you must follow some simple rules:
Don’t smoke and take drugs, don’t drink alcohol, don’t eat too much chips and sweets, eat more vegetables and fruits, sleep well, do exercises.
We have two lessons of physical training once a week. We do exercises, run, jump, play basketball and pioneer ball, ski in winter. I think that we must have more lessons of physical training than we have now. For example American pupils have their PT lessons every day.
I like to play tennis, to ride a bicycle and to swim. But most of all I like roller-skating. I could hardly wait when snow melted, I put on roller-skates and went outdoors. I spent one or two hours every day skating with my friends and we’ve got a lot of fun!
I don’t smoke (nobody smokes in our family). I know that this very bad habit may cause serious problems in your health. I do my morning exercises, try to eat “healthy” food and think that this is really a good way to live.
My Future Education.
This year I’m finishing school and taking my exams. I must solve the problem what to do. There are many possibilities: I can enter the 10th
form; go to a college or to work.
I have made my choice: I decided to enter the 10th
High education is necessary for my future job. I’m going to be Manager of tourism and must have good abilities in English, Russian, and Geography. I must have a good knowledge of computer; know modern programs, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
Manager of tourism must have economic and psychological education as well. Several faculties of tourism and hotel management have been opened in Moscow Universities and I’m going to enter one of them after school.
A person with University degree or the diploma of high education has more opportunities to get interesting job with high salary. I’ll do my best to get good marks for the exams in the 9th
form and enter the 10th
I attend secondary school #****. I started school in 1993 at the age of 7 and now I’m a pupil of the 9th
My first teacher was … … . She was the teacher of Russian, Math, Reading and Science. She taught us to write, to read and to count. She was very kind and patient. I liked my teacher very much. We often went for walks and excursions. We played together and became good friends with our classmates.
At the age of 10 I went to the secondary school. Our school has two buildings. The primary school is situated in the red building, as it called,
And secondary school is in the white one. It is very good that the younger children have their own building.
When we went to the secondary school we began to study a lot of new subjects such as History, Geography, Physics, Chemistry. Most of all I like Literature, History, English.
I like our school. I have really good friends here. We spend a lot of time together, help each other. Our school-life is very interesting; we often go to the excursions to Moscow museums and theatres. We went to St.Petersburg to Konstantinovo, the native village of Esenin and to Sergyev Posad.
I like to dance and I think that we must have more dance parties at school.
I think that I’m really happy at school.
Teenagers and Their Problems.
There are many young people in our country. Teenagers are a group of young people of the age of thirteen – nineteen years old.
I’m fifteen so I belong to that group. There are many problems, which are common for all young people. For example: how to spend free time, what to do after finishing school, how to deal with the classmates and parents. The problem number one is the problem of fathers and sons. All teens want to be independent, we don’t like when our parents try to rule every step of our life. Our parents don’t like our clothes and our music. They often try to treat us like small children. But if you really want to solve this problem you must try to understand each other.
Some teens begin smoking and drinking alcohol to show that they are grown-ups already. This will lead to poor health in future (especially for girls). I don’t like smoking (nobody smokes in our family) and I think you mustn’t do it to look like a cool guy.
The most serious problem nowadays is taking drugs and AIDS (the disease when the body’s immune system is not working).
I think that every teen must go into sports or have a hobby, and know that you are responsible for your life by yourself.
