3.2. Letter to the club «Friendship»

Practice reading the letter that has been sent to the club «Friendship», translate it into Russian.

January 15, 2004.


Dear friends,

Let me introduce myself. My name is Sveta Ivanova. I am 18 years old. I was born in Volgograd. Two years ago our family moved to Voronezh where I live now with my parents. My family is not very large. We are only four: my mother, my father, my younger sister and me. My mother is a housewife. She has much work to do about the house. She is as busy as a bee. As for father, he’s a journalist. He’s fond of his profession. He’s not a sit-by-the-fire, and he is often away from home. We always enjoy his company, as we like to listen to his interesting stories about his trips.

My younger sister is a pupil of the ninth form. Her name is Alla. She does well at school and gets only good and excellent marks. She is interested in economics. Alla wants to become an economist. We are a friendly family.

Our family live in a new nine-storeyed block of flats in Pushkin Street. Our flat is on the second floor. It is very comfortable and has all modern conveniences: central heating, electricity, gas, running water, rubbish chute and telephone.

I studied at school in Volgograd. Last year I finished school number fifty. We studied many different subjects at school. My favourite subject was History. I always did well at school and learned with great interest. I also attended sport sections and subject circles. I had many friends there.

Now I am a first-year student of the correspondence department. I study at the Economics Department of Voronezh of State industrial humanitarian college and work at a plant as a secretary. I attend lectures and practical classes. At the end of each term we take examinations and credit tests. So I must work hard to pass exams successfully.

My working day begins early in the morning. On week-days I usually get up at 7 o’clock. I make my bed and do my morning exercises. Then I go to the bathroom where I clean my teeth and wash myself. If I have enough time I take a cold and hot shower. After having a bath I go back to my room where I dress myself and brush my hair. In ten minutes I am ready for breakfast. It may be a cup of tea or coffee and a sandwich.

After breakfast I go to work. I don’t want to be late, that’s why I leave the house at 7.30. As I live not very far from the plant it takes me half an hour to get there. I usually get there by bus or tram. At noon I have a break and go to the plant canteen to have dinner. My work is over at 5 p.m.

In the evening I do my homework. Sometimes I go to the library to get ready for my practical classes or to write a report. As a rule I have no free time on my week-days. At about eleven at night I go to bed.

That’s about all I can write about myself. I’ll wait for your answer.


Yours, truly.

Sveta Ivanova
