Unit I. Introducing myself.
I. Read and translate the text. Prepare a topic about yourself:
First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Ann. My surname is Sokolova. I am seventeen years old. I was born in Volgograd. I live in Krasnoarmiesky district. This year I finished school number 75. Now I would like to tell you about my family. My family is not very big, just a typical family: Dad, Mom, me and my elder sister. My parents are not old at all. My father’s name is Vladimir Stepanovich. He is a teacher by education and businessman by profession. My mother is a housewife. My sister Oksana graduated from University, she is an engineer. I love my family very much.
In my free time I like listening to music, meeting with my friends. Besides, I like to swim and play badminton. I am very interested in learning English because I always wanted to become a businesswoman. I also think, that the knowledge of foreign languages helps in everyday life and career.
This year I entered the Volgograd State Agricultural Academy the Faculty of Technology of Production and Processing of Agricultural Products. I understand, that it is necessary to study a lot to become a good specialist.
Studying at our Academy gives a solid background in all spheres of knowledge and prepares for practical work. But now I don’t worry about finding a job.
The most important thing for me now is to study well and to graduate from the Academy.
II. Reed and study the list of idioms you can use when talking about your daily routines. Describe your working day.
During the week I usually wake up at 6.30 a.m. I sometimes lie in bed for five minutes but then I have to get up (=get out of bed and get dressed). Most evenings, I go to bed at about 11.30 p.m. I'm usually very tired, so / go to sleep/fall asleep very quickly. Occasionally though, I can't get to sleep (=succeed in sleeping). When that happens, I sometimes manage to fall asleep about 3 a.m., then I oversleep (=sleep too long) in the morning. If I have a late night (=go to bed very late; compare - an early night), I try to have a nap (=a short sleep, e.g. 20-25 minutes) in the afternoon. The weekends are different. On Saturday and Sunday I have a lie-in (=stay in bed until later, e.g. 9 a.m. or 10 a.m.)
In the week I have breakfast at 7.30 a.m., lunch at 1 p.m., and dinner around 7 p.m. I also have one or two snacks, e.g. cakes, biscuits or fruit, during the day at work. As I live alone/by my awn/by myself '(=without other people), I also have to make my own breakfast and dinner, but during the week I don't bother (=make an effort) to cook very much. I also have to feed my two cats twice a day as well.
In the summer I have a shower in the morning, but in the winter I often have a bath instead. Sometimes I have a shave at the same time, or shave when / have a wash and clean/brush my teeth after breakfast. I wash my hair two or three times a week.
In the morning I leave home about 8.15 a.m. and get to work by 9 a.m. I have a lunch break from 1-2 p.m., and a couple of short breaks during the day (e.g. coffee break). I leave work around 5.30 p.m. and get home about 6.15 a.m.
