My Family

First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Taras. I'm seventeen years old. I'm in the 11-th grade. There are two more kids in the family besides me - my elder brother Oleg and my younger sister Mariya. Oleg is twenty-one, he studies at the University, and he will be a dentist. Mariya is only twelve, she is a schoolgirl. My parents are not old at all. My Mum is forty, she works for a newspaper. My Dad is forty-four; he is a computer engineer. My parents love their jobs very much. I forgot to mention one more member of our family. It's our favorite poodle Tim.

I'm doing quite well at school. My parents are proud of my marks. I go in for sports. I play basketball. In summer time I like yachting and windsurfing. I take part in different basketball competitions. In a year I will finish my school and I have to decide what occupation to choose. I have been studying English for seven years. I want to be a military interpreter. My grandparents are already retired. They like gardening and spend all their time growing tomatoes, potatoes, onions, strawberries, raspberries.

My Family

I’d like to tell you a few words about my family. There are four of us in the family. I’ve got Mother, Father, and Brother.

My mother’s name is Lyudmila Nikolaevna. She is 43. She is a bookkeeper and works in a plant. She is a kind, nice woman. She is good at cooking. She is fond of gardening. There are a lot of flowers in our house.

My father’s name is Konstantin Alexeevich. He is 46. He is a businessman. He is clever, strong man. He is interested in computers and painting. He is Jack of all trades. Almost everything in our house is made by him, that’s why our house is so comfortable.

My brother’s name is Andrew. He is 19. He is a fourth-year student of Technical University. He is going to be a programmer. By character he is kind and cheerful.

My name is Sergey. I am 18. I study at Agrarian University. I’m going to be a mechanic. My hobby is swimming and reading.

I think that our family is very friendly. We like to spend time together.

III. Read, translate and reproduce the dialogues: Dialogue 1.

Mr. Allen and Mr. Smith are going to Mrs. Jones. They talk on the way.

Mr. A: Well, we are nearly at the Jones' house. I will be able to introduce you to Mrs. Jones and her children.

Mr. S: They have five children, haven't they?

Mr. A: Yes, three boys and two girls.

Mr. S: How old are they?

Mr. A: The eldest, John will be fifteen this year. Then comes Willy, aged twelve, Marry who is eight, is the third; next comes Betty, aged four, and the youngest is James, who is only two. He is the baby of the family.

Mr. S: What a large family! I suppose the elder children go to school?

Mr. A: Yes, John goes to boarding-school. He has just come home for the holidays. The others go to day -schools. Willy is, I know, always with his grandparents.

Mr. S: By the way, is your brother Jack back in England?

Mr. A: No, he is in the States, but his wife and child came back to England last week. I was very pleased to see my nephew. He will remain in England for his education.

Mr. S: How old is your nephew?

Mr. A: He is ten years old. He is a fine boy, but being the only child is rather spoilt. School will do him good.

Mr. S: Does he get on well with your sister's children?

Mr. A: Oh, yes! He plays all sorts of games with his cousins, and they never quarrel.

Mr. S: Have you any other brothers or sisters?

Mr. A: One sister. She is unmarried and spends all her time travelling. Here we are. Let's go in.
