ПРИМЕРНЫЙ ТЕМАТИЧЕСКИЙ ТЕКСТ СРЕДНЕЙ СЛОЖНОСТИ ДЛЯ ЭКЗАМЕНА/ЗАЧЁТА/СОЧИНЕНИЯ
I think every person dreams of a place where he can speak about his problems, chat with close friends, where he can feel happy and quiet. For me, it is my family and my home. It is the best place in the world and my dearest people live here. My family is not large, we are 4. I have a father, a mother and a brother. We all live together in a new flat. My father is 45. He is a tall well-built man with short black hair and grey eyes. He is quiet and hardworking. Really, he is a breadmaker of the family. Dad is handy with many things. His hobby is fixing everything at home. My mother is very lively. She is a pleasant woman of forty with beautiful chestnut hair and dark brown eyes. She is the core and soul of the family. My parents have been married for 20 years. In everyday life Dad is rather impractical and needs Mum to look after him. Parents have different views on music, books, films. For example, my father likes horror films and my mother is fond of soap operas. My father is a soccer fan, whereas Mum doesn't like sports except figure skating. But they try to have the same opinion about education and upbringing of their children. My brother is only 11. He goes to school. He is funny and curious. He is constantly asking many questions, often silly ones. But I can't imagine my life without our little monster. We all feel happy when we are together. In the evenings we often have little gatherings in the kitchen by the cup of tea, chatting, laughing and discussing the events of the day. Those evenings are the best of all. But sometimes I have problems with my parents. They don't always like the clothes I wear, the music I listen to and the friends I bring home. It's not easy to be a teenager. In summer I visit Granny who lives in the countryside. When I was a child she used to tell me fairy tales and fascinating stories from her life. Unfortunately, my Granddad passed away several years ago. My parents manage to combine work with housekeeping. Mum manages our household very well. We all are in the habit of helping her to run the house. They say: "My home is a cosy place." Our relatives and friends like to come to our place. My parents are very hospitable, so everybody feels at home in our flat.
