My Family

I am Zhilin Andrey. Andrey is my name and Zhilin is my surname. I am seventeen years old. I want to tell you a few words about my family. My family is not large. I have got mother, father and grandmother. There are four of us in the family.

First of all some words about my parents. My mother is a teacher of biology. She works in a school. She likes her profession. She is a good-looking woman with brown hair. She is 44 but she looks much younger.

My father is programmer. He is forty-six. My father often sings and when we are at home and have some free time I play guitar and we sing together. He is also handy with many things. When he was small he liked to take everything to pieces. My grandmother told me a story that once my father tried to repair their kitchen clock but without success. They had to give it to a repairman. But it happened a long time ago. Now he can fix almost everything.

My parents have been married for 18 years. They have much in common, but they have different views on music, books, and films. For example my father likes horror films and my mother likes soap operas. My father is fond of tennis. My mother doesn’t go in for sports.

My parents are hardworking people. My mother keeps house and takes care of my father and me. She is very good at cooking. My grandmother is a pensioner. She lives with us and helps to run the house. She is fond of knitting.

I want to become a student. I’d like to learn foreign languages. I always try to be in a good mood. We have got a lot of relatives.

Family in the USA.

Belonging to a family is one bond almost everyone in the world shares, but family patterns vary from country to country. The United States has many different types of families, but the traditional structure of the American family -- mother, father and children -- continues to prevail for the most part as a new century unfolds. Yet, over the past several decades, US society has witnessed an evolution in family structure and daily life in many respects, because of myriad factors, running the gamut from advancements in science to the composition of the workplace. Single parenthood, adoptive households, step-parenting, stay-at-home fathers, grandparents raising children are but a few of the newer tiles in the mosaic.

What is it like to be a young person in the United States?

The typical American child spends six hours a day, five days a week, 180 days a year in school. Children in the US start preschool or nursery school at age four or under, kindergarten at five years of age. Schools provide American children with much more than academic education. More than 80 percent of all students participate in extracurricular activities, such as sports, student newspapers, drama clubs, debate teams, choral groups and bands.

During their leisure time, American kids spend much time watching television, listening to music or playing computer games, but many also have after school jobs. One recent poll indicated that nine out of 10 teenagers polled said they either had a job or would like one. Child labor laws set restrictions on the types of work that youths under 16 years can do. Many youths work part-time on weekends or after school at fast-food restaurants, baby-sit for neighbors, hold delivery jobs or work in stores. Many youths are also involved in community service organizations or are active in church and religious-group activities. Other belong to youth groups such as Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts,were they learn about citizenship, arts, camping and other outdoor activities

Thousands of young Americans volunteer to help take care of the elderly, the handicapped and hospital patients, or help clean up the environment. While for most American children and teenagers life today is nearly free of serious conflict, young people are still under many types of stress. Peer pressure, changing family conditions, mobility of families, unemployment and problems at school may lead to use of alcohol or drugs, the refusal to attend school, running away from home, teenage pregnancies or juvenile delinquency.

  1. What relatives do you have?

  2. How many uncles and aunts have you?

  3. What are their names?

  5. Do you often see them?

  6. Have you any nephews or nieces?

My flat.

We have a nice flat in a new block of flats. Our flat is on the fourth floor.

It has all modern conveniences: central heating, gas, electricity, cold and hot water, a lift and a chute to carry rubbish down.
There are three rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a hall in our flat. The living-room is the largest and most comfortable room in the flat. In the middle of the room we have a square-table with six chairs round it. To the right of the dinner-table there is a wall-unit which has several sections: a sideboard, a wardrobe and some shelves. At the opposite wall there is a piano and stool before it. Between the two large windows there is a little table with a colour TV set on it. Near the TV set there are two cozy armchairs. A small round table, a divan-bed and a standard lamp are in the left-hand corner. This small table is for newspapers and magazines.
My father is used to having a rest sitting on this divan-bed reading books, newspapers, magazines or watching TV. The bedroom is smaller than the living-room and not so light as there is only one window in it.
In this room there are two beds with a bedside-table between them. An alarm-clock and a small lamp with a pink lamp-shade are on the table. In the left-hand corner there is a dressing-table with a big mirror. In this room we have a built-in wardrobe with coat-hangers to hang clothes on. There is a thick carpet on the floor and plain light-brown curtains on the window.

The third room is my study. It is not large but very cosy. There isn't much furniture in it, only the most necessary. It has a writing-table and an armchair before it. In the right-hand corner there is a bookcase full of books, magazines and newspapers. A small table with a radio is standing in the left-hand corner. Near it there is a sofa with some cushions. In my opinion, the study is the best room in our flat.

But the warmest place in our flat is the kitchen, I think — the place where the whole family gathers every evening not only to have supper together, but also to speak and rest.
I like the English proverb: "My home is my castle" because my flat is, indeed, my castle.

My working day

As 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. I get breakfast at seven-thirty and listen to the news over the radio. I like to begin the day well, so my breakfast is always a good one.
For breakfast I usually have hard-boiled eggs or an omlet, bread and butter, tea or coffee; I read my newspaper with my last cup of coffee before I leave home.

Then, I say "Good-bye" to my mother, take my school-bag and go to school.I don't live far from my school, so it doesn't take me long to get there. The lessons start at half past eight. Each lesson lasts for 45 minutes. The classes are over at two o'clock.I come back home, have dinner, wash up and go shopping. I buy foodstuffs for the family. Coming back I begin to clean the house and get the vegetables ready for supper. We have supper at seven. I do my homework for the next day. It usually takes me several hours to prepare well for the lessons.

In the evening, I always try to spend at least an hour at the piano. As a rule my parents and I sit and talk, watch a film on TV, read newspapers and magazines. Sometimes, we go to the cinema or to the theatre. Once or twice a month, I visit exhibitions in my home town. I go to bed at about eleven o'clock, but my parents like to sit up late and write letters or read.

Yesterday it was Sunday, that’s why my last day off was not long ago and I remember it quite well. I always try to do my best to make my holidays really exciting, because we have only few days in a week for relaxation and rest.

Yesterday my friends and I agreed to meet at my place. First we watched a very interesting TV show «What? Where? When?». Then we went took a videocassette and watched an outstanding movie «The Independence Day». This is a story about strangers from the other planets that were trying to conquer the whole Earth and about the struggle against them. The movie is full of visual effects and computer graphics that takes your breath and makes you admire the modern technologies in the cinema. I wish our studios and directors made such movies. «The Independence Day» can be added to the genius pieces of modern art – that is my opinion.
Having watched the film, we decided that it was a time to go outside. The first place we went to was the sports ground. Though it was rather cold, we put on warm clothes and had fun. Almost all day long we played soccer and basketball.
As for me, I like weekends and holidays, as the majority of other people. And I like telling about my holidays. It’s dull to listen about the ordinary working day, how do you think? Every working day looks like another, but every weekend is different from the other. During the weekend we have an opportunity of enjoying the life and having rest.

Meals in Britain

The English say that in their country the variety of food from meal to meal is probably greater than anywhere else in the world. They say that you can never confuse a breakfast with a dinner, for example, and that in many other countries you eat exactly the same kind of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At the same time for the gour­met, "Ukrainian food is of extremely good quality, and it really tastes of something — unlike American food, for instance, which all tastes the same," says an English television's famous cook who has visited this country. He praises the Ukrainian national dishes, for example, "Ukrainian borshch" with "smetana" looks good and tastes good.

You can have your meals at home, in a restaurant or a café, in the canteen of your factory or office. Those who stay at rest-homes or sanatoria have meals in the dining-hall, which is generally placed in a separate building, usually a cottage with kitchen premises. While travelling by train you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the din­ing-car as well cooked and served as if you were in a first-class ho­tel, or at the railway station when you are at the point of fainting from hunger you hurry to the refreshment room before the train starts. If you travel by ship your dinner or supper may be served in the din- ing-saloon.

In case you are up to the eyes in work and can't go to the can­teen but are hungry and want to have a bite you may drop into a self- service restaurant or "cafeteria" as Americans call a restaurant at which patrons serve themselves at a counter, taking their food to ta­bles to eat.

Nowadays many self-service canteens, restaurants and cafés are being opened throughout the country. When employees or workers have a short break for dinner or lunch they find it impossible to get home for this meal and so they take it in a self-service cafe or res­taurant. There are cafés and restaurants to suit every taste and purse.

In Britain you can find table d'hôte and à la carte dinners in every restaurant. Table d'hôte dinners are cheaper than a là carte ones. When you dine a la carte you order course by course? As you desire. But a table d’hote dinner consists of several courses, a choice is limited, and it is served in a canteen or a restaurant at a fixed price.

Task 2. Answer the following questions.

  1. What do the English say about their country?

  2. Why is it impossible to confuse a breakfast with a dinner?

  3. Where do you eat if you travel by ship?

  4. What is table d'hôte?

The hospitality of Ukrainian people is well-known throughout the world.

When a foreigner sets foot in Ukraine first he gets acquainted with our cookery — national dishes and meal-times. Frequently he gets to know that in this country they are not the same as in his. But he has to do in Ukraine as the Ukrainians do.

The usual meals in Ukraine are breakfast, lunch, dinner and sup­per. Sanatoriums, rest-homes, hospitals and other public establish­ments follow the generally accepted order of meals.

Breakfast is the first meal of the day. Lunch or luncheon is a light meal usually in the middle of the day.

Dinner is the chief and the most substantial meal. It isn't served at a definite hour in our country. When it is in the middle of the day, the lighter evening meal is called supper.

Working people usually have a break for dinner at their place of employment. During the break they have either dinner or lunch.

In a great many Ukrainian homes dinner is followed by a cup of tea with a slice of lemon, jam or home-made pastry.

If you have a special dinner, a housewarming party, for example, you should know how to lay the table on such an occasion.

First you spread the table-cloth and put out table-mats to pro­tect the table from the hot dishes;a tureen of soup, a bowl of hot vegetables, a platter of meat, a boat of sauce, etc. Then you take out of the drawer in the sideboard soup spoons for the soup, spoons for the sweet and all the cutlery — knives and forks, including a small knife for the butter,' a small knife and fork for the hors d'oeuvres and a fruit knife for dessert.

You should put the knives and the soup spoon on the right-hand side and the fork on the left, except the spoon for the sweet which you should put across the top. Then you put out the bread-board and a knife to cut the bread.

On the left of each guest you put a small plate for bread and on the right a wine-glass. Don't forget to put out table napkins for each guest and place several salt-cellars.

Once again have a look at the table and see if it is laid for each person. Then you are ready for the friends to come and don't forget to put a bowl of beautiful flowers on the dinner table.

Task 2. Answer the following questions.

  1. What are the usual meals in Ukraine?

  2. Why should you know how to lay the table?

  3. What are your meal-times?

  4. What is your favourite dish?

  5. What do you generally take for the first course?

  6. What do you generally take for the second course?

Some building professions
A man, who has been an apprentice for some years in a building trade and has therefore enough skill to be considered a skilled worker at his trade, is called tradesman or craftsman.

He may be a carpenter-and-joiner, bricklayer, mason, slater-and-tiler, plumber, electrician, house painter, glazier, floor-and-wall tiler, plasterer, paper-hanger, steeplejack, hot water fitter and so on.

Bricklayer is a tradesman who builds and repairs brickwork, lays and joints salt glazed stoneware drains, sets, chimney pots, manhole frames and fireplaces. He renders brickwork, including the insides of manholes. A sewer and tunnel bricklayer is a specialized bricklayer. In some districts of Great Britain, bricklayers also fix wall and flooring tiles, and slating and lay plaster and granolithic floors. But elsewhere these are plasterer's specialities.

Carpenter is a man who erects wood frames, fits joints, fixes wood floors, stairs and window frames, asbestos sheeting and other wallboard. He builds or dismantles wood or metal formwork. The two trades of carpenter and joiner were originally the same, and most men can do both, but specialize in one or the other. In the USA the term "carpenter" includes a joiner. The word is derived from the French word charpente which means a wood or metal framework.

Joiner is a man who makes joinery and works mainly at the bench on wood which has been cut and shaped by the machinists. His work is finer than the carpenter's, much of it being highly finished and done in a joinery shop which is not exposed to weather.

In Scotland a joiner is a carpenter-and-joiner.

Mason is a stone worker or stone setter. In Scotland and the USA a bricklayer is usually also a mason. A fixer or a fixer-mason or a builder mason is a mason who sets prepared stones in walls, whether the stone be only facing or to the full wall thickness.

Plasterer is a tradesman who may be a fibrous plasterer or a plasterer in solid work. The latter lays successive coats of plaster or rendering and fixes fibrous plaster such as mould cornices an wall pattern. He can use a horsed mould, erect lathing for plaster, and apply stucco.

Task 2. Answer the following questions.

  1. Who is called a craftsman?

Home, sweet home.

I personally think that home is a little world where one lives according to his/her own rules. It's a place where you feel comfort, warmth and reliability. And I believe that it's not the size of the place where you live that matters, but the way you feel about it. And if your house is not just a building for you but a place that you can call home, it means that you want to stay there as long as possible and it's a place where you always want to return to.

The importance of home is depicted in languages of all the nations: we say "East or West, home is best ", the English say "My home is my castle". Home is a place that awakens the most pleasant feelings and high emotions in soul of every person. Always after a hard day I return home and think "At last I came home". For me there is no place like home.
I'm sure that home of a person is as much a reflection of his personality, as the clothes he wears, the food he eats, the books he reads and the friends he spends his time with. Homes reflect the way of life and habits of their owners.

I adore my home; I like to be there, because it's always filled with happiness and joy. Even after the first few minutes in our flat you can understand all hospitality and friendliness of this place and the family which lives there. Our flat is very warm and cosy, so it makes any person feel at home. It's the place where I wake up every morning to the refreshing smell of coffee from the kitchen and where every day of my life starts, that's why it is so important for me.

My home, my sweet home... Sometimes after a long journey I return home with such pleasure and happiness, that I feel myself like a baby that returns to its mother. I love every corner and every thing in my flat. "My home is my fortress", it is my territory, my place where I feel good and comfortable. And nobody can disturb me here. Like most families of a large city my family lives in a block of flats. It is a 9-storey building, situated rather far from the center of the city. There is no underground station nearby, but it’s not a problem to get to downtown by bus or by tram. We live in a rather quiet district. Nevertheless there is a number of shops, a hairdresser’s, a chemist’s and a cafe near my house. My flat is situated on the 5th floor. There is an elevator in every porch, so we don’t have to walk up. We have three rooms: a large living-room, my parents’ bedroom and my room. Certainly, there is a kitchen, a bath­room and a lavatory in our flat. The flooring is parquet in the rooms and entrance hall, in the bathroom and lavatory it’s tiled. All the rooms are papered, with wallpaper of a different pattern and colour. A feature of life in a modern flat today is a number of electrical appliances, that make our life easier and save our time. Our family has a washing machine, a vacuum cleaner, a toaster, a chip pan and squeezer. My mother’s dream is a dish-washer, but it is too expensive for the fa­mily budget. My room is not the largest in the flat, but I really like it very much as I’ve furnished it by myself. I’ve got every­thing necessary here: a writing table to work at, a sofa to sleep on, a wardrobe for clothes, a wall unit with books and magazines I need, and a number of pictures and posters on the walls. I have not got a TV-set in my room, but I can watch it in the living-room. The thing I really lack is a personal computer. If I had a PC, I would be able to use it for doing my school projects and reports, listening to CDs and play­ing computer games. But my family can’t afford it at the moment. In fact, I’ve got a musical centre, so I have a pos­sibility to listen to my favourite cassettes and CDs. Actually, I think it’s great to have a room of my own, so that I can put all the things wherever I want. I’m really happy to have the place, where I can work and rest, where I feel comfortable, relaxed and independent.
