Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Smith are sisters. Mrs. Wilson lives in a house in Duncan and Mrs. Smith lives in a condominium in Victoria. One day Mrs. Wilson visited her sister. When her sister answered the door, Mrs. Wilson saw tears in her eyes. “What’s the matter?” she asked. Mrs. Smith said “My cat Sammy died last night and I have no place to bury him”.
She began to cry again. Mrs. Wilson was very sad because she knew her sister loved the cat very much. Suddenly Mrs. Wilson said “I can bury your cat in my garden in Duncan and you can come and visit him sometimes.” Mrs. Smith stopped crying and the two sisters had tea together and a nice visit.
It was now five o’clock and Mrs. Wilson said it was time for her to go home. She put on her hat, coat and gloves and Mrs. Smith put the dead Sammy into a shopping bag. Mrs. Wilson took the shopping bag and walked to the bus stop. She waited a long time for the bus so she bought a newspaper. When the bus arrived, she got on the bus, sat down and put the shopping bag on the floor beside her feet. She then began to read the newspaper. When the bus arrived at her bus stop, she got off the bus and walked for about two minutes. Suddenly she remembered she had left the shopping bag on the bus.

Almost all people are fond of travelling. It is very interesting to see new places, another towns and countries. People may travel either for pleasure or on business. There are various means of travelling. For me there is nothing like travel by air; it is more comfortable, more convenient and, of course, far quicker than any other means. There is none of the dust and dirt of a railway or car journey, none of the trouble of changing from train to steamer and then to another train.
With a train you have speed, comfort and pleasure combined. From the comfortable seat of a railway carriage you have a splendid view of the whole countryside. If you are hungry, you can have a meal in the dining-car; and if a journey is a long one you can have a wonderful bed in a sleeper.
Travelling by ship is also very popular now. It is very pleasant to feel the deck of the ship under the feet, to see the rise and fall of the waves, to feel the fresh sea wind blowing in the face and hear the cry of the seagulls.
Many people like to travel by car. It is interesting too, because you can see many sights in a short time, you can stop when and where you like, you do not have to buy tickets or carry your suitcases.
A very popular means of travelling is hiking. It is travelling on foot. Walking tours are very interesting. Hitch-hiking is a very popular method of travelling among young people. But it is not as popular in our country as abroad. Читать далее «Classroom activities. A project: Travelling»

My favorite sport is running. It is very useful for your health. It develops the will power and regulates heart work. I try to run as much as I can, both in the afternoon and during the day. At one time, I participated in a lot of races, but for some reason I had to leave the race. I love to run because at that time I feel more free and it seems to me that I can run wherever I want and nobody can reach or stop me. But of course, now I’m not so fast and resistant in the past, but I feel like I can still be free and happy.
Իմ սիրելի սպորտաձևը վազքն է։ Այն շատ օգտակար է առողջության համար։ Այն զարգացնում է կամքի ուժը և կարգավորում սրտի աշխատանքը։ Ինքս աշխատում եմ հնարավորինիս չափով վազել, թե առացոտյան և թե օրվա ընթացքում։ Ժամանակին ես շատ եմ մասնակցել մրցավազքներին, բայց ինչ֊ինչ պատճառներով ստիպված եմ եղել թողել վազքը։ Ես սիրում վազել, քանի որ այդ ժամանակ ես ինձ ավելի ազատ եմ զգում և ինձ թվում է թե ես կարող եմ վազել այնտեղ, որտեղ կկամենամ և ինձ ոչ ոք ոչ կարող է հասնել, և ոչ էլ կանգնեցնել։ Բայց իհարկե հիմա ես այդքան արագ և դիմացկուն չեմ ինչ անցյալում, բայց զգում եմ, որ կարող եմ լինել առաջվա պես ազատ և երջանիկ։

Triathlons? In the teiathlon, people swim four kilometres, cycle 180 kilometres and then run a maraton, 42 kilometers. Rick can’t run, cycle or swim because he’s in a weelchair. So how can he take part in a trathlon?

And in the cycling, Rick sits in a special seat on the front of Dick’s bike. Togther, they are «Team Hoyt».

Claire is 16. She lives in Godalming in the south of England . She doesn’t watch TV every day. She’s selective-she chooses which programmes to watch. This is what she says about TV.
‘No, I don’t watch TV every day. I think it can be a waste of time. My favourite programmes are competitions- like Britain’s Got Talent. I always watch that. The people do great things. And thats why I like it a lot. I also watch documentaries- especially about life in other countries, becouse I really like geography. I sometimes watch cartoons at the weekend. I watch about eight house of TV a week, I guess. I never watch sports programmes- I don’t like them at all. And I hardly ever watch the news’.
