What would you like to charge about your home town?
I would like live re to be better sports facilities in my home town. At the moment there are some sports facilities, but they are old and often do not cater for younger people who prefer different sports to those that were popular in the past, such as basketball and tennis. It would certainly be expensive to construct the new facilities, but I think that the investment would be worth it as people would participate more often in sport and the construction would create some jobs.
What industries are there in your country?
There are several important manufacturing industries in my country. The biggest are car manufacturing, electronics, clothes and textiles, and heavy machinery. Together, these industries employ about half the working population and make up most of our national exports. In recent years, live re lias been more competition from abroad, but the companies have improved their efficiency to deal with this.
How many wedding have you been to?
I have only been to two weddings in my life. The first was when I was a teenager. I remember being very bored. The second was when a friend from school got married. That wedding was much more fun. I didn’t get drunk, but I drank most of the day and ate a lot of delicious food. I met some really
nice people I had never met before as well as some old friends.
What do you find difficult about writing in English?
I always worry about making too many grammar mistakes when I write in English. I know that my English grammar will never be perfect, but too many mistakes – especially basic ones – can create a very bad impression on the reader. I almost always reread my writing to check for mistakes. If it is
especially important. I do this twice or ask someone else to check it too.
Which is your favourite part of the weekend?
My favourite part of the weekend is Saturday evening. On Friday evenings. 1 am often too tired to go out with my friends to a bar. but by Saturday evening I am refreshed. There’s no work on Sunday, so I can stay out very late. I generally spend Saturday evenings with my friends. There are a few bars we enjoy going to. Sometimes we meet for a meal beforehand.
