ABOUT MYSELF

I am a turner. I work at a big plant.

Our plant is equipped with modern machines. I like my speciality very much.

The shop where I work often takes the first place in the Socialist emulation at the.plant.

Our plant usually fulfills the plan ahead of schedule-

I am also a student of an evening school for workers.

I go there three times a week after my work.

I study English there too.

I like the English language very much.

I try to study regularly and I hope that soon I shall learn to speak English well.

On the days when I have no classes I go to the cinema or the theatre.

Sometimes I spend the evening at home with my family.
