My brother’s name is Ilya. He is 20 years old. He studies at the Institute. He is not married. He is capable and very cheerful. My brother and I look very different. But we have much in common. We both like to play computer games and to watch video films.

We have many relatives: grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. They live in various parts of our country. Bur best of all I like my grandmother Ekaterina Grigorievna. She is very kind and understanding.

**My Family

I believe a family is one of the most important things in our life. The things we need in our lives: love, communication, respect and good relationship, begin in the family.

Happy to say, I have a stable and happy family. My family is neither large nor small. I would say, it’s an average Russian family. It consists of four people. We are my mother, my father, my brother and me. The head of our family is my father. His name is Pavel Ivanovich. He is 43 years old. He is a businessman by occupation. He works at his own firm. Fortunately he has a steady well-paid job. It’s he who provides for the family. My Dad is very industrious and devotes much time to his work. At the same time he is a good father and devoted husband. Whenever he is free we spend our time together. He has a good sense of humor. He knows many funny stories and always ready to share them with us. He is a man of character and I can’t but feel proud of him.

The heart of our family is my mother. Her name is Anna Victorovna. She is 40 years old but she doesn’t look like her age, she looks young for her age. She is very attractive. Her eyes are expressive, her hair is short. She is tall and slender. My Mum is a teacher at school. She works a lot but manages to be a loving mother and a good house-keeper. Besides she is a very good cook. She always cooks tasty things. She is communicative and wise. I can share any problems with her. I can’t but admire such a tender, good-natured woman.

My brother, Ilya by name, is 20 years old. He studies at the Institute. He is not married yet and has no family of his own. He is capable and very cheerful. He is good to get along with. We have good relationship. My brother and I look very different. He takes after our father and I resemble our mother. But we have much in common. We both like to play computer games and to watch video films.

We have many relatives: grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins who live in various parts of our country. Bur best of all I like my grandmother Ekaterina Grigorievna as she is very kind and understanding.

Our parents give us a very good example of being decent persons and having good relations. I would like to be strong-willed and clever like my father, tactful and cheerful like my mother. Besides it would be nice to have such friendly relationship as my parents have.

My family is everything for me. It gives me emotional support and security. Whenever I have difficulties I can ask my parents for help. If they have problems I am ready to give them a helping hand. We also share all happy moments of our life. Paraphrasing the English proverb I would say “My family is my castle”.

**My Hobby

Hobby is something done for rest and pleasure. The English say “tastes differ” that means that every person has his or her own likes and dislikes.

As for me I like reading most of all. When you read you learn a lot about the world around you, about other people, history and life of other peoples. Usually I borrow books from the library but I have a lot of them at home. I collect science fiction, fantasy and detective books by Russian and foreign writers. I try to find out the biographies of my favourite writers. Among the names in Russian and foreign literature that are dear to me are Ivan Efremov with his Razor’s Edge and J.R.R Tolkien with his famous trilogy The Lord of the Rings, and the queen of the detective stories Agatha Christie with her well-known characters Hercules Poirot and Miss Marple. I am also fond of watching screen versions of their books.

Literature means much in my life. But I am sure that travelling also helps to form the world outlook and to understand life better. I like travelling by train. In a train we can see the places which you pass or make friends with new people. I am fan of visiting different place of interest like monuments, palaces, museums, art galleries. I always take pictures to keep memory of all that I saw and visited.

I think that any person must have a hobby. In this way his or her life will become more interesting.

What does he do?

He has a steady job in an office in London. After a hard day at work, he relaxes in front of the television or watches a video. He doesn’t go out every evening, but two evenings a week he meets friends for a drink in the local pub. He owns a pet, usually a dog, and takes it for a walk every day after work.. He spends on average 120  pounds per week.

Where does he go?

At the weekend, he regularly eats in restaurants, goes to see shows, and plays a sport (usually golf). Most weekends he puts on a pair of old blue jeans, and potters in the garden. He usually goes on holiday abroad more than once a year.

What does his wife do?

His wife is happy, too, but not quite as happy. She runs the home and has a job, but she doesn’t earn as much as her husband.

My aunt Emily

Of all my relatives, I like my Aunt Emily the best. She’s my mother’s youngest sister. She has never married, and she lives alone in a small village near Bath. She’s in her late fifties, but she’s still quite young in spirit. She has a fair complexion, thick brown hair which she wears in a bun, and dark brown eyes. She has a kind face, and when you meet her, the first thing you notice is her lovely, warm smile. Her face is a little wrinkled now, but I think she is still rather attractive. She is the sort of person you can always go to if you have a problem.

She likes reading and gardening, and she goes for long walks over the hills with her dog, Buster. She’s very active person. Either she’s making something, or mending something, or doing something to help others. She does the shopping for some of the old people in the village. She’s extremely generous, but not very tolerant with people who don’t agree with her. I hope that I am as happy and contented as she is when I’m her age

Mark, he's 23, he works as a DJ - a disc jockey - in the evenings. He's happy there. Craig, he's 20, he learns to be an engineer with a local company and the younger two, Richard and Charles are still at school. When I don't work I spend a lot of time shopping.

Most big towns in Britain have both a university and a college of higher education. There are 91 universities in Britain and 47 colleges of higher education. Universities offer three- and four-year degree courses; colleges of higher education offer both two-year HND (Higher National Diploma) courses, as well as degree courses.

A degree is the qualification you get from university when you pass your final exams. You are then awarded a BA (Bachelor of Arts), BSc (Bachelor of Science) or Bed (Bachelor of Education).

Undergraduates, students who are studying for most of the work takes place in tutorials: lessons in groups of ten or more when the students discuss their work with the lecturer.

Getting into university

Only 25 per cent of the student population goes on to higher education. Competition to get into one of Britain’s universities is fierce and not everyone who gets A levels can go. Students usually need three A levels to go to university and grades at A level go from A, the highest grade, to E.

Students apply to universities months before they take their A-levels. The students are given a personal interview and the universities then decide which students they want. They offer them a place which depends on A-level results. The more popular the university, the higher the grades it will ask for. Miriam is worried because she has not got the results the university wants. She must now try to get a place at another university or college before new term starts in early October.

Living at university

Most British students choose to go to university a long way from their home town: university is seen as a time to be independent, to live away from home and develop new interests.

British students do not have to pay to go to university, but do need money to live away from home while they are studying. Some students whose parents do not earn a lot of money are given a grant (money) from the local education authority. If students do not get a grant, parents are expected to pay for their children. Some students borrow money from the bank which must be paid back after they leave university. In theory, the grant pays for rent, food, books, transport and socializing. In fact, the grant is not a lot of money. Students used to work during the holidays to earn more money, but it is now difficult to find such jobs. The result is that more students are dropping out, failing to finish their courses.
