I am neither tall nor short. My friends say that I am thin. My hair is fair and short. My face is oval, my nose is short and turned-up. My eyes are large and blue.
2. I am a schoolgirl. My school is not far from my house and it takes me 10 minutes to walk there. At school we learn different subjects such as: Russian, Literature, Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, History and others. I would like to say that I am good at many subjects, but I like English and History best of all. I like to read English books and learn easy poems and songs. My hobby is swimming. I go to the swimming pool twice a week.
3. Our family consists of my parents, my sister and me. I can say that our family is small, and we love each other very much.
My mother’s name is Marina Vladimirovna. She is 37. She is a teacher. She is a very nice woman.
My father’s name is Konstantin Ivanovich. He is a pilot. I am sure he is a skilled pilot. My father is a very clever and kind man.
4. I have a small sister. Her name is Lyuda. I like to take care of her. Sometimes we read funny stories, sometimes I go for a walk with my sister. Lyuda is fond of drawing. She spends a lot of free time drawing trees, streets, flowers and animals.
All the members of our family have their own hobbies. But we like to spend our weekends together. We go to the forest. In summer we gather berries and mushrooms, in winter we go skiing there.
I like to dress well. I try to buy shoes and dresses which are in fashion. I am a polite girl. I try to be a kind, honest and serious person.
