Task No.19

From: Taitana

To: Daniel

Subject: Exams


Hi Daniel!

Thanks for you last e-mail.

I am very glad that you want to visit our country.

I think the best month to visit Russian is August. Because this mounth isn't too hot and isn't cold.

So, I think you should certainly visit  Red Square, the Kremlin, the Tretyakov Gallery,  Arbat,

The Kazan Cathedral etc.

You can visit the theaters. This includes theaters  as the Bolshoi theatre, the theater of the

Mossovet theatre and many others..

I think you should travel around by bus or train or better by subway because russian roads and

traffic jams aren't cool.

I can't recommend a specific good and inexpensive hotel. It depends on your budget and preferences.


Hope to hear from you soon!

Best wishes,

One of my favourite photos is of the Greater Caucasian ridge. It took the photo in summer of 2012

when I was on holiday in Kabardino-Balkaria.

When I took the photo I was between Elbrus and the Caucasus range. It was incredibly beautiful

and memorable. So I really like this photo. Part of the way I was rising on the cable car.

Task No.6

I. 1)  I like the authors of different genres. For example in fiction I like Ray Bradbury.

    I never get tired of reading and rereading the works of this author. So his work "Fahrenheit 451"

    is one of the best book I've ever read.

   2) My parents are the most generous people I've ever known.  

    They do everything for me and I try to thank them for that.

   3)  I usually don't watch TV.  But from my past experience of turning on the TV, I know that

   "House 2" is one of the worst programmes on TV I've ever seen. 

   4)  I don't like horror films, because it doesn't frighten me . I usually feel disgusted or even sad.

   But I think there are good films. For example  "Astral" is the most frightening film I've ever seen.

   5) I am the most untidy person in my family. I often have to tidy a room because I like to do chaos.


II.1) My PE teacher is the healthiest person I've ever known. He is always full of energy.

    When we fall down from tiredness, he is ready to do the exercise again and again.

  2) Skateboarding is the most dangerous sport I've ever done. My friends influenced on me

  in this case. I usually fall down out of the blue and without skateboard. But some time later I was able to ride.

  3) "What are men doing?" is the worst film I've ever seen this year. I and my fellow students saw

  this film in the cinema. We didn't like this  masterpiece, but we had fun.

  4) Kerling is the most boring sport I've ever watched. It's not very interesting for me, although it looks 


  5) Metropol hotel building is one of the most beautiful old building I've ever seen.

  The facade is designed in modernist style with elements of pseudo-Gothic. Beauty!


Task No.5


Future holidays.


On holidays I'm not going to travel anywhere. But maybe I'll go away to ride a bike several times.

This vacation I'm going to devote the work. I intend to find a job at least for the summer months.  

This is very important for me because I aspire  to independence. But also, like everyone else, I want

to find a  nice job with a decent salary. 

In my free time I'm going to do what I want. For example, I might meet with relatives and friends.

I have not  communicated with many of them  for a long time. And I really miss them.

Also I'll have time to read fiction not only to read student's books. If it is sunny and warm I'll have the inspiration.

 Maybe I'll create something new such as a picture.

I also want to learn something new. I don't know what it is but I know one thing - I need to try.

In the end,  I  certainly don't know where my fate will lead me.

Task No.3

I live in Moscow, which is a city on the Moskva River in the center of the Eastern Europe Plain, between the Oka and Volga.

Moscow - is the capital of the Russian Federation, the federal city, the administrative center. It has a population of

11 977 988 people(2013) and it's the most populated city in Europe. Although this town is crowded, the people who live here are sometimes unfriendly,

there are a lot of cars in the streets, people live in an "eternal traffic jam" Moscow is one of the most beautiful cities

in the world. There are lots of streets, streets with old buildings, it's full of churches, museums, apartment houses, restaurants and shops.

The climate of Moscow is of the continental type, modified by the temperate influence of western winds from the Atlantic Ocean.

Winters are cold and long, summers are short and mild . But in the middle of summer it is usually hot.  It's great for going to the countyside

or the city beach. But I don't like summer in the capital because all my Moscow friends usually travel somewhere.

Moscow is a cultural center. The city offers us many cultural programs and other activities. There are special parks, centers,

clubs, cafes where you can find entertainment to your taste. In this city it's difficult to get bored. Even if you don't find entertainment,

"entertainment" will find you.

Moscow is a city of my childhood. I grew up in Moscow. Whatever you say but I love this city.

Maybe it's because this city brings me some strange feeling, a feeling that I'm home.



Task No.2

First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Tanya. I'm Russian and I live in Moscow, the capital of Russia.

I live with my parents. I don't have any brothers or sisters. I'm eighteen years old and I'm at university.

I'm a student in the Economics Department.

I'm going to tell you about myself. I have long hair and brown eyes. I'm tall and not very fat. I think I'm a

and making sketches. Sometimes I get inspiration from books or from pictures in the books.



Task No.1

a) one thing I've never done but would like to do;

I have never driven a car. But I'm going to do it. I have been behind the wheel, but I have

never traveled to a certain place. I'm going to make money for a car and maybe my

parents will help me.


b) one thing I've done many times and advise everyone to do;

I have been to the mountains several times.  My brothers and my uncle are climbers.

Аlthough they could not travel with me,  I understood the reason for their love for this

great place. It seems our love for the mountains and active rest is  in our blood.

I traveled with my parents, but I traveled only with my new friends in some places. 

We had a very good time. I got a lot  of experience. I advise everyone to visit such places.


c) one thing I've done recently;

I have just met my old friend. We haven't seen for a long time.  It was an exciting, sudden and nice



d) one thing I'm spending more or less time on than two years ago.

I spend a lot of time for my homework every day. Although people usually take a rest at the weekend,

 I do my homework for the Saturday courses. As a result I have  little time for other

things.  Still I spend a lot of time travelling in the subway.  Аnd it takes a lot of time to get somewhere.
