MY SUMMER VACATION
It is always pleasant to have summer vacation. Lessons are over, all problems are left behind, and ahead some good moments are waiting for me. Summer is a time when you can walk with your friend, play games, visit your friends and relatives.
Now it seems to me, that summer has passed as a single day, and it seemed to me in summer that it would never end. Summer has gone very fast, but despite it, it left a lot of unforgettable impressions.
Last summer I spent at my granny’s in the village. It was nice to live there. It is not like in the city. There is pure and fresh air, there is no noise of the city.it is quite different in the city. There is much more pleasant, quieter and easier to live. After four weeks in the village in June I went back home with my daddy. I spent a week in Murmansk and then my parents sent me to the camp Imamura. It was very nice there: new friends, impressions, trips to different places, discoes. I was there a whole month and I didn`t want to leave when the time came. In August I returned home.
It was very cold in Murmansk. Every day I walked with my girlfriends, and I got acquainted with some new people.
I could’t imagine that I would remember this summer for long.

Самостоятельная работа № 2 (работа с текстом MY FUTURE PROFESSION, 4 часа)
Законспектировать текст «My future profession».
MY FUTURE PROFESSION
«What should I choose as my future profession?» – this is a question that every young person asks himself entering the adult world. Of course, it’s not an easy thing to choose a profession out of more than 2,000 existing in the world. It’s especially difficult if you like doing different things, if you have different hobbies and interests.
Almost half of a person’s life passes at work. So it’s extremely important to make the right choice of a profession. Psychologists believe that the choice of a future profession must be in accordance with the individual’s talents and abilities. In order to make the right choice you have to analyze your interests and abilities and try to understand what you’d like to achieve in your life.
For example, I like biology. I adore animals, plants, insects, and all forms of life. I spend many hours reading books about wild nature, characters and habits of animals, underwater life etc. I believe that nature is so mysterious and powerful, that it’s natural to admire it and to devote all your life to its exploration.
But it’s not my only hobby. Most of all I like painting and I want to be an artist. As a child, I began to draw everything I saw around myself. I drew my parents, my friends, my kitten, flowers and other things. Then I entered art school and began to study painting.
My parents doubt this is the right decision. They say this profession demands on you to give it all your energy and passion and one must be fully dedicated to it in order to achieve perfection. At the same time nowadays it’s difficult to earn your living with painting. But I don’t agree with them.
I think that modern life open new horizons for artists and they can work in many fields today. Many artists work as designers for advertising agencies or for web design studios. Yes, there are many designers who draw with computer programs like Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, but the skill of drawing by hand is highly appreciated in many design studios. Besides, such job demands not only computer knowledge, but also creative thinking of an artist.
