Alice’s Story


 

Hi, let me introduce myself first. My name is Alice. I am 16 years old. I live in London, Great Britain. I would like to tell you some words about my family and myself. I am the only child in our family. It made me be sad when I was little because I didn’t have any brothers or sisters to play with, so I just played alone.

My dad is a doctor and he always spends so much time in his hospital, even on weekends. My mom works in the flower shop; she loves gardening and growing flowers. I help her sometimes when I have free time.


 

I go to the art college in London. I major in architecture. I am a first year student. I like my college and I have many friends there. We like to gather after our classes and go somewhere like to a coffee bar. My best friends are Jessie, Diana, Ann, Christina and Erik.

I forgot to mention my grandmother. I love her a lot. She is retired. She doesn’t have to go to work any more, so she spends the most of her time with her cats. She has three cats and I like playing with them. I have a boyfriend; we started dating two months ago. He studies in my art college but he majors in modern art. We like to walk in the center of London when the weather is good. I can’t wait until I graduate from my art college and open my own gallery.

Vocabulary

to introduce oneself – представить (кого-то)

gardening – садоводство

art college – колледж искусств

to mention – упоминать

to major – учиться по специальности

to graduate – оканчивать (учебное заведение)
