A great number of people play and watch tennis. Ten­ nis tournaments at Wimbledon are known all over the world. The innumerable tennis courts of Britain are oc­ cupied by people between the ages of 16 and 60 who show every degree of skill — from practically helpless to the extremely able.

 

The British also like to play golf, baseball, hockey, grass-hockey. Various forms of athletics, such as run­ ning, swimming, boxing are also popular. You can some­ times hear that there are no winter sports in England. Of course the English weather is not always cold enough to ski, skate, or toboggan, but winter is a good season for hunting and fishing.

MY FAVOURITE WRITER

 

Arthur Conan Doyle

 

I love reading English classical literature. But I am especially fond of English detective and adventure sto­ ries. I like Agatha Christie's books but my favourite author is Arthur Conan Doyle. I like him because his fiction is very realistic and helps me develop me thinking and knowledge.

 

Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Scotland in the fam­ ily of Irish. He was a doctor. In 1882 he moved from Scotland to England to set up a practice. His medical knowledge was a great help to him in his detective stories.

 

Conan Doyle was one of the first writers who started the fashion of detective story. Today the fashion goes on with the stories of other writers.

 

Conan Doyle created his famous character, Sherlock Holmes, in 1885. Six years later, when Conan Doyle wrote some stories about this detective, the name of Sherlock Holmes became the name that everybody knew. Sherlock Holmes first appeared in a book called «Study in Scar­ let* («Этюд в багровых тонах»). «The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes* made him famous all over the world.

 

Conan Doyle was a famous writer. He became popular because of his love for people.
