When I was little, I learned English to please my Mum. She told me that English was very important, but I didn’t understand why. We lived in a small town and I didn’t know anybody who I could speak English to. My family didn’t go on holidays abroad. We didn’t have any access to English books or films in the original language. When all my friends played outside, I had to stay at home and learn English. I thought it was very unfair.
When I was eleven, my family went to St Petersburg. We did some sightseeing and visited a lot of museums. When we were in the Hermitage, we met a group of American children who had come to visit Russia. T hat evening we met in the park and they told us about America, their life, their hobbies and school. Although I couldn’t understand everything. I was really thrilled. Our new friends were very interesting people. On one hand they were just like me, but on the other hand — they were different. Since then I started learning English with great interest. I understood how important it was to be able to speak a foreign language.
Years have passed since then. I’ve travelled to different countries, graduated from an English university and made friends all over the world. All in all it was a very good idea to learn English.
