You can see there the saying ‘Hobbies differ like tastes’. Do you agree with this saying? Why do you think so? And how can you explain the meaning of the word “hobby”?
Hobby is something a person likes to do. Different people have different hobbies. Some people like listening to music, others prefer reading books. Many people say that collecting or traveling are their hobbies. It's nice to have a hobby. Hobby teaches people to plan the life and time. Some hobbies teach us to make useful things, develop their mind and body.
