V. Reading. My Primary School.
My name is Aidar. I am 14 years old now I am living in Astana. Astana is the capital of Kazakhstan. I started school at the age of seven. It was an ordinary school in Almaty where my family lived before. After four years of primary school I went to secondary school. Primary and secondary schools together comprise eleven years of study. Nine years of classes are compulsory in our republic.
The primary school curriculum included such subjects as Kazakh, Math, Russian, Drawing, Physical Training and Music. We had also Nature classes. Our school was not an English School but we had English classes which started in the 2-nd form.
Our school year began on the first of September and ended in May. It lasted 9 months. We had 4 holidays a year: winter, spring, summer and autumn. On the first of September we got acquainted with our teachers and had our first lessons. Every lesson lasted forty five minutes. Every day we had 4 or 5 lessons. We usually had a lot of homework and it took us 2 hours to do it. If we didn’t know how to do our homework we usually asked the teachers for help.
