I don't live in Cambridge but in a town just outside. I go to school by bus. I like listening to music and playing football. At weekends I go out with my friends. Sometimes we go to the cinema and sometimes we just go for a walk with my dog. I speak English and French, but I don't speak German. My favourite subjects at school are computer studies and maths, but I don't like history. What about you? Please, write to me. Best wishes, Max 3. Read the text. My Holidays After each term in school we have our holidays. It's fun to have holidays, you can do whatever you like, you don't have to get up too early, do your homework or think of troubles which occur very often at school. Most of all I like summer holidays, they are the longest ones, though, when winter is snowy and frosty, I enjoy my winter holidays skating and skiing, sledging and making a snowman or having a fight with snowballs. I'd like to tell you about my summer holidays I ‘m going to spend in Sochi. My parents and me were sitting in the living-room discussing our plans for the summer holidays. My father suggested that we should go to Sochi. On hearing that I jumped up with joy and said it was a wonderful idea. My mother wasn't against the idea either. So one summer morning we’ll start for our journey to Sochi. First, we’ll travel to Odessa by plane and from there we’ll get to Sochi by boat. We’ll stay in Odessa for three days, our relatives live there and they’ll give us board and lodging. So we’ll have an excellent opportunity to go round the city, to see beautiful monuments to the famous people, museums and the Odessa Opera House. *** We enjoyed our trip from Odessa to Sochi. The Black Sea was calm. We sat on deck in the lounge chairs and looked at the sea. I like Sochi very much, we bathed and went boating and swimming lay in the sun on the beach. In the evenings we went for a walk or dropped in at a cafe to have ice-cream or juice. My father showed us the famous Botanical Gardens, we went for hikes in the mountains, we saw the magnificent Augura Waterfalls. The sea was nice and warm. The weather was fine. When it was time to go home, we were sorry to leave the marvellous town of Sochi. 3. Write a story on one of the topics.
