We are 4 at our family: my mother, father, my elder brother and
I. I think, our family is friendly, united. We spend much time together, go for
a walk in the woods, visit theaters, museums, go to the cinema. My mother’s
name is Luidmila Mikhailovna. She is an engineer, she works in an office. She
is a kind, nice woman. She can cook very well. She is fond of reading. My
father’s name is Konstantin Alexeevich. He is a sailor. He is a strong, clever
man. He often tells me interesting stories about different countries. Father
can do a lot of things. He teaches me to repair furniture, to drive a car. My
brother’s name is Alexei. He is 22 years old. He have been studied in Far-
Eastern State Marine Academy for 5 years. Now it is a very difficult period for
him: he is passing through state exams.
репутацией нации с хорошим характером. Им присущи честность и деловитость. Из
всех цивилизованных наций немцы легче всего и дольше всего и дольше способны
подчиняться правительствам, под властью которых они живут, больше всего далеки
от жажды перемен и сопротивления существующим порядкам. Но при этом немец –
человек всех местностей и климатов. У него нет страстной привязанности к
родине, и он легко переселяется в другие места. В чужих землях, где поселяются
немцы, они скоро заключают с местными народами нечто вроде гражданского союза,
который благодаря единству языка, а отчасти религии, превращает переселенцев в
небольшой народ, который под началом властей при спокойном, справедливом
управлении выгодно отличается от других народов прилежанием, чистоплотностью и

Modernity in the U.K.)
As I am sure you have noticed, most
of the things we buy these days are labeled “Made in Taiwan”
or China or even better Bangladesh. Rare are the moments when we
actually get a hold of a “Made in the U.K.” product.
“Made in Britain” seems to withhold a content that is
more than a label. A Cadbury chocolate is not just any ‘chocolate’
and a Royce isn’t exactly a Dacia; well it depends on how you
look at it!
Die Zeit ist der
einzige Begriff,der den Menschen nachdenken lässt. Der 20. Jahrhundert ist
zu Ende. Die Fehler der Menschen, die Tätigkeit der Politiker, die
Feindschaft werden vergessen, verschwinden allmählich aus unserem
Gedächtnis. Aber für ewige Zeiten bleiben die Dinge, an die man sich
erinnern wird, die das Menschenleben zum Fortschritt führen. Wollen wir
uns am Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts an alles Gute und Wichtige erinnern, was
dieses Jahrhundert der Menschheit mitgebracht hat.
St-PB is the second largest city
in Russia. Its population is about five million people. The city is
situated on the east shorn of the golf of Finland of the Baltic Sea.

Learning foreign languages. Somebody said:
"English is a language that came from nowhere to conquer the
world…" These words are really true and I will prove it. Foreign
languages are absolutely necessary for us nowadays because of our growing
international contacts with all the countries of the world. ...
I would like to tell you about
shopping in the United Kingdom. Marks & Spencer is Britain's
favorite store. Tourists love it too. It attracts a great variety of
customers from house wives to millionaires. Princess Diana, Dustin
Hoffman and the British Prime-minister are just a few of its famous
customers. Last year it made a profit of 529 million pounds. Which is
more than 10 million a week. It all started 105 years ago when a
young Polish immigrant Michael Marks had a stall in Leeds market. He
didn't have many things to sell: some cotton, a little wool, lots of
buttons and a few shoelaces. Above his stall he put the now famous
notice: "Don't ask how much - it's a penny." Ten years
later he met Tom Spencer and together they started Penny stalls in
many towns in the North of England. Today there are 564 branches of
Marks & Spencer all over the world: in America, Canada, Spain,
France, Belgium and Hungary. The store bases its business on 3
principals: good value, good quality and good service. Also, it
changes with the times; once it was all jumpers and knickers. Now it
is food, furniture and flowers as well. Top fashion designers advice
on styles of clothes. Perhaps, the most important key to its success
is its happy well-trained staff. Conditions of work are excellent.
There are company doctors, dentists, hairdressers, etc. And all the
staff can have lunch for under 40 pence. Surpassingly tastes in food
and clothes are international. What sells well in Paris, sells just
as well in Newcastle and Moscow. Their best selling clothes are: for
women - jumpers and knickers (M & S is famous for its knickers);
for men - shirts, socks, pajamas, dressing gowns and suits; for
children - underwear and socks. Best sellers in food include: fresh
chickens, vegetables and sandwiches, "Chicken Kiev" is
internationally the most popular convince food. Shopping in Britain
is also famous for its Freshfood. Freshfood is a chain of food stores
and very successful supermarkets which has grown tremendously in the
twenty years since it was founded, and now it has branches in the
High Streets of all the towns of any size in Britain. In the
beginning the stores sold only foodstuffs, but in recent years they
have diversified enormously and now sell clothes, books, records,
electrical and domestic equipment. The success of the chain has been
due to an enterprising management and to attractive layout and
display in the stores. It has been discovered that impulse buying
accounts for almost 35 per cent of the total turn over of the stores.
The stores are organized completely for self-service and customers
are encouraged to wander around the spaciously laid out stands.
Special free gifts and reduced prices are used to tempt customers
into the stores and they can't stand the temptation.
The intensification of some features
of the concept in question is realized in a device called simile. S. must not
be confused with ordinary comparison. They represent two diverse processes.
C. means weighing two objects belonging to one class of things with the
purpose of establishing the degree of their sameness or difference. To use S.
is to characterize one object by bringing it into contact with another object
belonging to an entirely different class of things. C. takes into
consideration all the properties of the two objects, stressing the one that
is compared. S. excludes all the properties of the two objects except one
which is made common to them.
