Looking back over the year I can conclude that it was great time which have changed my life. I find new friends around my groupmates and I really love them. When I entered this university I afraid I couldn’t handle it and break down, but now I am sure that I became more clever and experienced. This year make me stronger and this is good.

I really grateful you, Guzel Khalilevna for your interesting and fascinating lessons. I really didn’t think that learning English is such interesting. Earlier I studied it boring. You make in me new power of love English.

Dear Future Me, please, don’t panic, do your best and everything will me great. Be the best version of yourself and study properly. Pay a lot of time self-development and do sport.

It is the end of second semester and I would like to conclude my progress. I formulated my goals clearly and I think I have a success. First of all I’m proud of better understanding English daily speech. At this semester I watched many cartoons in English and it really help me, I even watched “Cheburashka and Gena” in English it was really funny.

Also I really glad that I read 2 books in English this year. It was really significant for me. It was hard sometimes but it worth doing.

And I really happy about we got closer with…

Once upon a time, I remember it was an Indian summer, my friend and I was walking from early morning, the weather was nice. At afternoon rain started to drizzle and my friend said: “it never rains but it pours” and after that it was rain cats and dogs. Thunder and lightnings began. We were afraid of it and ran to the shop for wait it. I looked at the weather forecast for near future and rain didn’t want to stop. My father took us away. Then we came home the weathe was cleared up. My friend felt herself right as a rain and I cared for her whole day.

Now I would like to imagine that I stayed at three nights at hotel “Villa Rosa Riviera” in Rimini with my mother. It costed to stay was 14584 rub for three nights.

Facilities of this hotel:

  • Direct access to the beach
  • Beach umbrellas
  • Wifi
  • Parking
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Spa salon
  • Gym
  • Conditioners
  • And many other things

I would stay there again because this hotel was really comfortable. It has many facilities and the most important facility is private beach.

If I can visit any city in the world I would visit Rimini because it is really good and interesting city…

I spend a month interning at the “Moscow-tour” travel agency and now I want to summing up my experience of this year.

Actually, I was really disappointed about it. My expectations were not met. I thought at internship I could get more knowledge about this profession and sphere but my director of internship was really indifferent person. She told that she didn’t want to work with students.

👩🏽‍💼At internship I did:

  • Work with documents
  • Study rules and regulations
  • Work as promoter
  • Talk with employees
  • Play a game with employees about different kinds of travelers
  • Make posts and stories on agency’s Instagram
  • Answer to phone calls

It was interesting but I would want to know more about work in travel agency, but I liked to try it.

Today I find that I didn’t post about book that we have chosen in our “pleasure reading team”. It was a book “Peter Pan”. We find a book for a long time, it was really hard to find a book to make it suitable for everyone. This book seemed to us the best choice because everyone of us like a fairy tales, this book has a simple vocabulary and interesting plot. I liked to read this book, it had a lot of interesting characters and unusual actions. I watched the cartoon “Peter Pan” a long time ago, so now I…

Let’s imagine that I was asked to direct a movie about Peter Pan. If I was I director of this movie, the main character’s soundtrack would be song by Rihanna “dancing in the dark” because the meaning of the text are similar with action of the book. “I wanna dance in the dark and never stop. We gonna light up the night like shooting stars”. The first adventure of Peter and Wendy began when they flew to the Netherlands in night. It was amazing experience for Wendy and her brothers.

I would try to find to play the part of…

Hello, my friends! Today I would like to tell you about traditional Russian house. Let’s start!
In Russia in general people live in apartment. Mostly in our country prevail 9 nine-storey apartment houses. Typical for families is two-room apartment, in this type of place for living I live with my parents. In Russia people usually count every room, not only bedrooms.
Let’s come into the apartment.
In some houses there is a vestibule, and in others the apartment starts immediately from the stairwell. Vestibule in Russia is a small common place for two or three apartments where people can take off…
