I would like to tell you about
shopping in the United Kingdom. Marks & Spencer is Britain's
favorite store. Tourists love it too. It attracts a great variety of
customers from house wives to millionaires. Princess Diana, Dustin
Hoffman and the British Prime-minister are just a few of its famous
customers. Last year it made a profit of 529 million pounds. Which is
more than 10 million a week. It all started 105 years ago when a
young Polish immigrant Michael Marks had a stall in Leeds market. He
didn't have many things to sell: some cotton, a little wool, lots of
buttons and a few shoelaces. Above his stall he put the now famous
notice: "Don't ask how much - it's a penny." Ten years
later he met Tom Spencer and together they started Penny stalls in
many towns in the North of England. Today there are 564 branches of
Marks & Spencer all over the world: in America, Canada, Spain,
France, Belgium and Hungary. The store bases its business on 3
principals: good value, good quality and good service. Also, it
changes with the times; once it was all jumpers and knickers. Now it
is food, furniture and flowers as well. Top fashion designers advice
on styles of clothes. Perhaps, the most important key to its success
is its happy well-trained staff. Conditions of work are excellent.
There are company doctors, dentists, hairdressers, etc. And all the
staff can have lunch for under 40 pence. Surpassingly tastes in food
and clothes are international. What sells well in Paris, sells just
as well in Newcastle and Moscow. Their best selling clothes are: for
women - jumpers and knickers (M & S is famous for its knickers);
for men - shirts, socks, pajamas, dressing gowns and suits; for
children - underwear and socks. Best sellers in food include: fresh
chickens, vegetables and sandwiches, "Chicken Kiev" is
internationally the most popular convince food. Shopping in Britain
is also famous for its Freshfood. Freshfood is a chain of food stores
and very successful supermarkets which has grown tremendously in the
twenty years since it was founded, and now it has branches in the
High Streets of all the towns of any size in Britain. In the
beginning the stores sold only foodstuffs, but in recent years they
have diversified enormously and now sell clothes, books, records,
electrical and domestic equipment. The success of the chain has been
due to an enterprising management and to attractive layout and
display in the stores. It has been discovered that impulse buying
accounts for almost 35 per cent of the total turn over of the stores.
The stores are organized completely for self-service and customers
are encouraged to wander around the spaciously laid out stands.
Special free gifts and reduced prices are used to tempt customers
into the stores and they can't stand the temptation.
differ like tastes. If you have chosen a hobby according to your
character and taste you are lucky because your life becomes more
interesting.Hobbies are devided into 4 large groups: doing, making,
collecting and learning things. The most popular of all hobby groups
is doing things It includes gardening, travelling, playing games and
so on. Making things includes drawing, painting, writing music. My
main hobby is to collect compact disks. No matter what kind of hobby
a person has, he always has the opportunity of learning from it. By
reading about the fthings he is interested in, he is adding to what
he knows. Learning things can be the most exciting aspect of a hobby.

Moscow is the
capital of Russia, its political, economic, commercial and cultural
centre. It was founded 8 centurys ago by Prince Yuri Dolgoruky in
the city became
more and more powerfull. In the 13th century Moscow was the centre of
the struggle of Russian lands for the liberation from the tartar
yoke. In the 16th century under Ivan the Terrible Moscow became the
capital of the new united state. Though Peter the Great moved the
capital to St. Petersburg in 1712; Moscow remained the heart of
Russia. That's why it became the main target of Napoleon's attack.
After the October revolution Moscow became the capital again.
Now moscow is one
of the largest cities in Europe. Its total area is about nine hundred
square kilometres. The population of the city is over 8 million.
Moscow is one of
the most beautiful cities in the world. The heart of Moscow is Red
Square. The Kremlin and St. Basil's Cathedral (Vasily Blazheny) are
masterpieces of encient Russian architecture. On the territory of the
Kremlin you can see old cathedrals, the Palace of Congresses, the
Tzar-Cannon and the Tzar-Bell, the biggest cannon and bell in the
world. St. Basil's Cathedral was built in the mid-16th century in
memory of the victory over Kazan.
One of the
well-known Kremlin museums is the Armouty Chamber. The famous golden
cap of Monomach, the first Russian imperial crown of Catherin the
second and many other historical items are exhibited there.
There are more than
80 museums in Moscow. The Historical Museum, the Pushkin Museum of
Fine Arts, the Tretyakov State Picture Gallery are world famous and
Moscow is famous
for its theatres. The best-known of them are Bolshoi, Maly and Art
Moscow is the seat
of the Russian Parliament (the Duma) and the centre of political life

The United Kingdom
of G.B. and Northen Irelands is situated on the British Isles/ The
British Isles consists of two large islands, G.B. and Ireland, and
about five thousand small islands. Their total area is over 244,000
The UK is made up
of four countries:England, Wales, Scotland and Northen Ireland. GB
consists of England, Scotland and Wales and doesn't include Northen
Ireland. The capital of the UK is London.
The British Isles
are separated from European continent by the North Sea and the
English Channel. The western coast of GB is washed by the Atlantic
Ocean and the Irish Sea.
The surface of the
British Isles varies very much. The north of Scotland is mountainous
and is called the Highlands, while the south, which has beautiful
valleys and plains, is called the Lowlands.
There are a lot of
rivers in GB, but they are not very long. The Severn is the longest
river, while the Thames is the deepest and the most important one.
The mountains, the
Atlantic Ocean and the warm waters if Gulf Stream influence the
climate of the British Isles. The weather in GB is very changeable. A
fine morning can change into a wet afternoon and evening and the
wrong side out. The english people say:"Other countries have a
climate; in England we have weather." The English also say that
they have three variants of weather: when it rains in the morning,
when it rains in the afternoon or t\when it rains all day long.
The weather is the
favourite conversational topic in GB. After they greet each other
they start talking the weather.
The best time of
the year in GB is spring(of course, it rains in spring too). The two
worst months in britain are January and February. They are cold, damp
and unpleasant. The best place in the world then is at home by the
big fire. Summer months are rather cold and there can be a lot of
rainy days. So most people who look forward to summer holidays, plan
to go abroad for the summer.
The most unpleasant
aspect of English weather is fog and smog. This is extremely bad in
big cities especially in London. The fog spreads everywhere so cars
move along slowly and people can't see each other. They try not to be
run over by a car but still accidents are frequent in the fog.
