A British teenagers spend most of their time at school. Students in Britain can leave school at 16 (year 11). This is also the age when most students take their first important exams, GCSEs. They take between five and ten subjects and that means a lot of studying. They are spending more time on homework than teenagers have done before.
B Visit almost any school in Britain and the first thing you’ll notice is the school uniform. Although school uniform has its advantages, by the time most teenagers are 15 or 16 they are tired of wearing it. When there is more than one school in a town, a school uniform can make differences and rivalries between schools worse.
C Music is the number one interest for British teens. But they certainly don’t all like the same music! UK garage, hip-hop and new metal are all popular. Teenagers love going out too. However, finding somewhere to go isn’t always easy. Pubs and clubs have strict rules for under 18-year-olds in Britain. It’s no surprise that British teenagers spend more time online than European or American teens and use chatrooms to make a new friend.
D In Britain, teenagers judge you by the shirt or trainers you are wearing. Forty per cent of British teenagers love Nike 110s (trainers that cost $110), but not for sport – for posing!
E Fifty per cent of teenagers in Britain say they have been bullied because of their race, looks, accent, intelligence or for no reason at all. Sixteen teenagers in Britain kill themselves every year because of bullying, a problem now called “bullycide”.
F Teenagers in Britain worry about their looks and their weight, like in many other western countries. Two-thirds of girls in Britain are on a diet, although only one in eight of them is overweight!
G Like teenagers all over the world, British teenagers love to chat. The mobile phone is an essential thing for most British teenagers. More than 90 per cent of 12 to 16-year-olds have one. Many experts believe that mobiles stop teenagers spending money on cigarettes and sweets.

Leonardo da Vinci
When they hear the name Leonardo da Vinci, most people think of his famous painting, Mona Lisa. This picture is in an art gallery in Paris, and it is visited by millions of tourists every year.
But Leonardo wasn't just a painter. He was also a talented inventor, engineer, architect and sculptor. He was full of new and exciting ideas. Leonardo da Vinci was born in 1452 at his father's country home near the town of Vinci in Italy. He spent his childhood surrounded by the wonders of nature, perhaps watching animals and insects „that were all around him.
Leonardo was hungry for knowledge. He studied the world around him and drew the things he saw. He read everything he could find, listened to other people's ideas, and made notes of the things he learned. Some of his notebooks were as large as wall posters, and others were small enough to carry in his pocket. Many have been lost, but some of them were published in the 1800s and can be seen today.
Although he was full of new ideas, Leonardo didn't build many of his inventions. One of his notebooks includes a drawing of a person with a parachute. Only 300 years later, in 1783, a Frenchman became the first person who made and used a parachute.
Leonardo did lots of drawings of arms and legs and other parts of the body and he designed a mechanical man — a robot! This robot could sit up, wave its arms, move its head and open and close its mouth.
Leonardo da Vinci died in 1519. He was truly a man ahead of his time.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Franklin Delano Roosevelt is still very popular in the United States. He was one of the greatest politicians of his time.
He was born in Hyde Park, New York, on January 30, 1882. He was the only son of James and Sara Delano Roosevelt. The Roosevelts were an old American family whose great-grandparents had come from England and Denmark. His mother was his first teacher. Young Franklin studied at Harvard* and Columbia.* He wasn't going to be a politician, but one day he agreed to try that path (nyть) and he never left it. Franklin Delano Roosevelt became President of the USA in 1932, when the country was in crisis. The nation believed him and believed in his New Deal («Hoвый кypc»).

At the time Roosevelt was the only politician to reform the country, his New Deal projects changed the whole country: millions of Americans found jobs and homes. In 1940 Americans elected Roosevelt for the third term (cpoк). It was the time when Europe was at war. He was elected as a President four times. No other person has been elected four times! President Roosevelt was really the leader of the nation during World War II.* His wife was also very popular in the USA and around the world. She was involved in many charities.(благотворитетьная деятельность). When Roosevelt died in April, 1945 the whole world was sorry.
