Saving energy and water/ studying environment (anglų kalbos įskaitos tema) Nr.2

 

The world – having all countries ( world) in mind, taking a global look at the environmental problems and economic development.
Economic development – industralization, transition from an agricultural society to one based on industry.
Limit – limit the growth of economic factories both in developed and developing world up to the level of society”s basic needs.

My goal in limiting economic development and protecting the environment is stability.

Both environmental and economic situations are not stable enough now. Because of industry there is overuse of natural resources such as natural gas, coal, petroleum. This overproduction causes environmental problems such as depletion of natural resources, the overuses of electricity causes air pollution, which has an impact on ozone layer and climate change.
The overproduction of goods is caused because of market economy. In market economy the more production you produce the lower the prices become. The goal of market economy is profit; so we have this overproduction.
I understand the ecological problems exist. And I wouldn’t like to argue how big they are or what impact they might have in the future. But as I’m seeking for stability, I don’t want to let those problems increase.
And to achieve this goal I’ll offer a plan. As the economic and environmental situations are different in various countries, I’ll divide the world into two parts.
First of all I’ll explain you how it should be set in developed countries. Second of all I’ll explain how it should be set in developing countries. And the third thing I’ll do, I’ll be explaining consequences and advantages of the plan.
Developed countries
In developed countries there is a huge overuse of production so I offer to make regulations and restrictions in oder to limit the overuse of the production. Though these restrictions should not be too drastic, for the ecological situation in the developed countries is not critical, but it’s still not good and stable. We all know that there laws in the developed countries in oder to protect the environment but they don’t work enough. Most of the conferences taken are just theories, for they haven’t made any regulations in oder to protect the environment. As an example the Kyoto Summit (1992) which decided to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2,5% by the year 2005 but nothing has been done recently. Earth Summit (Rio de Janeiro 1992), Orchus Convention (Denmark 1998), the Conference of London 1999: all of them didn’t do enough as I don’t consider only discussing environmental problems to be enough. I’m offering to create laws and regulations through governments.
Developing countries
Also new laws and regulations should be worked out in oder to protect the developing countries from the old technologies that the developed countries provide the with. Old technology causes the pollution which damages the environment. So setting these laws we’ll limit the import of old technologies and that’s already limiting of economy. And this will make the situation stable between economy and environment.
My conclusion has to follow I understand that my plan will not solve all the environmental problems but my goal is to keep the situation stable, it’s just the first step. We will not have overproduction in developed countries, we’ll have modern technologies in developing countries and they have higher needs. I’d like to name the advantages of my plan. We’ll not have big job losses, which deal with social and economic problems, because everything will be doing gradually in oder to achieve stability.
There are examples of saving both nature and money.
In a world of change not everyone can remain advantaged (Timothy Wirth the U.S. Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs).

Relationships/ summer holidays (anglų kalbos kalbėjimo tema) Nr.2

 
Relationships
 

People have different characters and interests, so their communication and relationship are different. Persons character influences relationship between two individuals.
relationships in a family where children and parents live happily together are harmonic and sincere. They can reveal all their secrets to each other and be understood. But I don’t think that there are many families where such harmony prevails.
My relationship with parents is not very good, because I’m a teenager and I want to be free and independent. My parents want me just to sit at home and do homework or some extra learning, so we argue a lot. But sometimes we spend beautiful days together as a united family.
Friends are the best thing which life gave us. Everyone wants to have friends to speak to, to tell secrets or have fun with. I think to be a good friend means to be faithful, reliable and sincere. I have four best friends. They are equally important to me. They are very friendly, have a good sense of humor, always help in a trouble and I know that I can trust them.
People can find friends everywhere. We met our first friends in a kinder-garden, then we get acquainted with new friends when we come to school. But we can find them not only in these places, we can find friends in dubs, theatres and everywhere where we are among people.
Some teenagers have a lot of problems with their parents. The most common problem is desire to be independent. Sometimes they argue because of the pocket money, permission to come home late or their studies. But parents are usually strict in this field.
The most common problems among teenagers are drug and alcohol abuse. Sometimes it can be a bad influence of friends or they want to try something new.
In general I can say that relationship with human beings is a part of our life and communication with each person is unique.

Learning english/ my future job (anglų kalbėjimo tema) Nr.3

 

First of all I’d like to say that Learning foreign languages is especially important nowadays.
Some people learn languages because they need them in their work, others travel abroad. Every year many people go to different countries as tourists or to work. They may not understand that countries language, therefore they have to know english, the language of international communication. Scientests, diplomats, politicions have to know english very well, because they need foreign language in their work. So, a modern and a cultural person must learn foreign languages. They are socially demanded, especially at the present time when the progress in science and technology has led to an explosion of knowledge.
english language is needed as the main means of information exchange of the people of our planet. Today english is the language of the world. It is the major international language of communication in such areas as science, technology, business and mass entertainment. It is also the major language of diplomacy and the universal language of International aviation, shipping and sports. Half of the world’s scientific literature is written in english. It is the language of literature, education, modern music, international tourism.
I’d like to finish by saying that english today is absolutely necessary for every educated person, so if to talk about myself I will study it very atentively in the future too.

Learning english/ my future job (anglų kalbėjimo tema) Nr.2

 

The choice of the future profession is a very delicate topic. A young boy or girl has little knowledge about the world of grown-ups. But if you listen only to other people advices without considering your tastes, preferences, talents and character, it will be only you to be blamed for the wrong choice. It is so difficult to decide, and you should keep in mind that wrong choice will result in many problems both for you and your family.

Choosing a profession you should take into consideration many factors.
The first is your talents, gifts, abilities. If somebody is good at languages, likes reading and writing, writes poems or articles for the school newspaper, he can make a good journalist or writer. But if the person is good at science and mathematics but can`t connect few words his writer`s career is impossible. So you should think not only about pros of the future job but also about if you manage to do it well.

Moreover, it is necessary to realize the advantages and possible disadvantages of the profession you have chosen. The profession can be well-paid , can give you freedom to create and be very interesting, but it can at the same time require your traveling a lot, learning Chinese or working late. If these conditions are not acceptable for you, choose another profession. To my mind the worst situation – to be torn apart between your job and your nature. It seems to be better to choose something simpler, something that will not irritate you every day.

As for me, question of choosing the future profession perturbs me greatly. After long doubts I have decided to become a hotel administrator, my future plans include opening my own hotel, recreation company abroad or something like that, as I am good at languages, I like communicating with people from different countries, having various cultures. Why have I chosen exactly this occupation, not a translator or guide which are also connected with language knowing? Simply because I would like to access power, not be dependent and feeling inferior to others. So, personal freedom in one of the most important factors for me.

Free time. tv/ my future house (anglų įskaitos tema) Nr.2

From my point of view, to have a dream means to have a path. A path which you follow most of your life and make all your efforts to fulfil your ambitions. As the topic is about the dream house, let me discuss about the way I see my future home.

Firstly, the location of the building is very important because what makes the home perfect is the opportunity to relax and get away from the troubles of your business life. So, my dream house would be located somewhere near the seashore, as a sound of the waves makes you feel calm.

Furthermore, to clarify the surroundings of my imaginary living place, I must say that there would be a large garden, full of various plants and decorations. Mostly important, I could hardly imagine my dream home place without a wooden bathhouse and a small path to the sea.

Such neat surroundings would present about not less convenient inside of the house. My criteria before architecting the building would be space. I would choose spacious rooms without a great number of walls. Of course, it would be a two-storey building decorated with claret bricks and the roof of brown tilling. In order to give the impression of freedom my dream house would have a lot of wide windows facing a picturesque view of the sea, pine forest and the garden. All the rooms would flow in bright colours, would not lack of carpets and curtains, which make the house warm. My dream house would contain both modern technologies and old-fashioned details. For example, I would enjoy having a fireplace and a basement designed in an old style. But of course I would not reject all the technologies which make our life more convenient and pleasant.

In conclusion, a dream house can’t be created by all those things mentioned above. What makes a house homelike is its atmosphere which can only be inspired by the residents of the place. As long as the people, you’ll be living with, were not the ones of your dreams, neither the garden nor the fireplace would make your house of your dreams.

My personal goals/ going to the cinema (anglų kalbėjimo tema) Nr.3

Such forms of entertainment like books, theater, and sports games were known even in antiquity. Circuses, funfairs, carnivals, roller – coasters and carrousels were made up many years ago as well, whereas cinema came into being only in the end of nineteenth century. Lumiere brothers demonstrated the very first motion picture in 1895. The earliest films were very short and soundless. Usually the performances of silent films were accompanied by live piano music. First movies with synchronized sound came in sight thirty years later. These films are called ‘talkies’. Sometimes they are sub – titled or dubbed so that people who don’t understand the language could understand the film. Nowadays cinema grew into a great industry. Producers, directors and the cast earn a lot of money. Actors are nearly gods for teenagers. Almost every family has a TV set. Cinema turned up recently, developed rapidly and insensibly became an important part of our lives. Going to the cinema is one of the best ways of spending our leisure time. It’s a wonderful way to meet your friends and the main thing – sophistication!

My personal goals/ going to the cinema (anglų kalbėjimo tema) Nr.2

Going to the cinema is one of the most popular way of spending free time. Nowadays we have quite large range of cinamas and we can choose desirable movie from large quantity of movies offered.

I always feel excited to go watching a movie in the cinema. I think it’s because when since childhood, it had been an exciting event for me to watch cartoon or Walt Disney movie. My parents usually will bring me there occasionally especially when there is a good film release. Sometimes, I found that some of my friends do not seem to be anticipating new movies as I am. Possibly they do not have great interest in watching movie or they did not enjoy watching movie since childhood. But if I go to watch movie, I won’t go alone. I’ve never been to the cinema alone, but I think it’s something I really want to do. It’d be scary for me as I don’t have a lot of confidence, but I think it’s a good thing to do to promote your independence.
Today we can download movies or watch movies on the internet, but still I miss the feeling in the cinema, drink cola, eatting popcorn, etc… memories go back to childhood. Going to the cinema is the most excited way for fun. The main goald of mine of going to the cinema – to expand horizon, to acquire new experience and knowlegge.

Let‘s protect the Baltic Sea (Anglų įskaita 2010) Nr.2

 

Baltic Sea Gets Special Protection

One of the world’s most extraordinary seas was finally given the protection it desperately deserves when the International Maritime Organization (IMO) designated the Baltic Sea as a “Particularly Sensitive Sea Area” (PSSA) during its meeting in London on April 2, 2004.

Designating an area as a PSSA requires ships to take special care when navigating through such areas, and enables coastal states and the IMO to agree on the best protective measures. It’s a tool that WWF has long been promoting to protect the Baltic Sea from a major oil accident.

Russia had enlisted the support of Panama and Liberia in an effort to block the proposed designation of the Baltic Sea and two other areas — the Galapagos and the Canary Islands — as PSSAs. Despite this, the PSSA applications for all three areas were accepted by the IMO.

WWF activists played a key role in this success, sending nearly 10,000 emails to urge the United States to support the proposal.

“The enthusiastic response from WWF activists was instrumental in achieving our goals to protect this unique marine environment and its species, such as seals, harbor porpoises, and sea birds from the disastrous effects of oil accidents,” said Päivi Rosqvist, Head of Communications, WWF Finland.

The Baltic is one of the planet’s smallest seas yet one of its busiest in terms of marine traffic, making oil spills a serious threat to this fragile and biologically diverse ecosystem. A major route for migratory birds, the Baltic is also home to marine mammals like grey seals, Baltic ringed seals, and threatened harbor porpoises, and many other creatures. In addition, an oil spill would harm fisheries and tourism, and prohibit the recreational use of the coastal areas for years to come — as occurred with the huge Prestige tanker oil spill off the coast of Spain in 2003.

Designating the Baltic as a PSSA will pave the way for special safety measures to reduce the risk of oil accidents. Moreover, striking a balance between shipping and the protection of the marine environment in the Baltic will contribute to environmentally sound and sustainable maritime transport systems well beyond the Baltic region.

WWF is now encouraging the Baltic Sea states to develop and propose effective associated protective measures to increase the safety of shipping on the Baltic Sea.

Let‘s protect the Baltic Sea (Anglų įskaita 2010) Nr.1

Protection of the Baltic Sea

The Baltic Sea is the youngest sea on the planet and is a unique marine brackish-water ecosystem. It is a semi-enclosed sea and thus highly sensitive to pollution, as there is little exchange of water through the Danish Straits with the neighbouring North Sea. The Baltic Sea also receives heavy pollutant loads from the bordering countries. In addition, the increasing oil transport in the Baltic Sea poses a particular risk to the ecosystem.

Particularly Sensitive Sea Area
In 2005 the Baltic Sea, with the exception of Russian waters and the Russian economic zone, was designated a Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The PSSA status includes special protective measures to control international maritime activities. The Baltic Sea has also been defined as a “special area” according to several annexes to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 73/78), which means stricter requirements for maritime transport than in other areas.

Finland’s Programme for the Protection of the Baltic Sea
In 2002 the Finnish Government approved Finland’s Programme for the Protection of the Baltic Sea. In June 2005 the Ministry of the Environment approved an action plan that presents the actions needed to meet the objectives of the programme. By adopting these two instruments, Finland also implements the 1995 Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities (GPA) coordinated by UNEP.

According to Finland’s Programme for the Protection of the Baltic Sea, in order to achieve a good ecological state in the Baltic Sea, steps must be taken both nationally and internationally in six main areas. These areas are combating eutrophication, decreasing the risks of hazardous substances, curbing the risks caused by various uses of the Baltic Sea, preserving and increasing biodiversity, increasing environmental awareness, and research and follow-up.

Research
The Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) operates its Research Programme for the Protection of the Baltic Sea.

The most serious problem in the Finnish coastal waters is eutrophication. In December 2004, the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development discussed ways and means of reducing eutrophication in the Baltic Sea. A background document was prepared for the meeting entitled “Curbing eutrophication in the Baltic Sea”.

Let‘s protect the Baltic Sea (Anglų įskaita 2010)

Baltic Sea states are still failing to deal with decades of environmental mismanagement in the Baltic Sea, where intense human activity has made it one of the world’s most threatened marine ecosystems, WWF’s Baltic Sea Scorecards report shows.

Home to rich levels of biodiversity and wildlife, the Baltic Sea is a unique marine ecosystem which also sustains the livelihoods and economies of millions of people in the nine coastal countries that call the region ‘home.’

Overfishing, irresponsible shipping, industrial exploitation and pressures from agriculture and forestry continue to negatively impact its sensitive environment. The Baltic Sea today is one of the most threatened marine ecosystems on the planet.

WWF’s 2009 Scorecard examines how Baltic Sea states are planning and managing sea resources and whether they are taking needed steps towards sustainable management.

No country scored the top grade, and only Germany received a B, given its progress in developing maritime spatial plans for its territorial waters and exclusive economic zone moving ahead of the other countries with its plans for the use of its sea waters. Germany is followed by Denmark, Poland, Finland and Sweden which all received a C.

These countries are all in early stages of developing a more integrated approach to sea use management.

‘The report shows that the management varies widely from country to country – and could be described as a bit of a ‘patchwork approach.’ To be able to solve the complex problems of the Baltic Sea the countries and governments must work jointly across sectors and borders,’ said Lasse Gustavsson, CEO of WWF Sweden.

Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia all received a grade of D because of a lack of evidence of any real results towards an integrated sea use management.

‘The Baltic Sea is still one of the most threatened seas in the world. Part of the problem facing the Baltic Sea is the ‘free-for-all’ mentality that still governs our use of the sea,’ said Pauli Merriman, Director WWF Baltic Ecoregion Programme. ‘If we are to succeed in saving our common sea for the future, we desperately need to work across countries, sectors and departments to achieve a more integrated sea use management and a holistic perspective.’

‘From an ecosystem perspective, such a relatively small sea like the Baltic cannot be treated as simply a collection of national marine areas. It constitutes, in almost all respects, one single marine ecosystem and should be managed as a whole,’ said Pauli Merriman.

My personal goals/ going to the cinema (anglų kalbėjimo tema) Nr.1

There are different kinds of films. Western, love stories, cartoon, tragedies, horror films, detective stories, feature films, musicals. Your choice depends on your mentality and intellect.
I_m impressed by feature films, especially with distinguished actors or actresses. There are names in the cinema history, which are regarded unique and timeless. Such is Greta Garbo, who herself is the history of the cinema.
Greta Garbo the distinguished film actress , was a unique personality among Hollywood stars , in the 1920-30_s , who never revealed to the world her biography.
All we know about her is that she was born in Stockholm in 1906, was trained in the city school , and at 16 become a pupil of the Royal Dramatic Academy. She never played on the stage.
What did she have that made her a great star? Her work began when she was given a script. She studied it very thoroughly. She studied out every situation, every time detail of it, everything. She memorised all the script which had been translated specially for her into Swedish. She knew exactly what she would do in front of the camera in every episode. She worked at top speed and at full emotion. She never rehearsed. She gave to the camera all she had, leave nothing for extremely difficult to play with Garbo.
She was a miracle. Like every great actor she could throw all of herself into a part, and having done that, she came out of it quite lifeless, her vitality burnt out.
On the set between scenes she would sleep in chair during all the intervals. She was and she looked different from all other stars, she as unrecognisable being tall, boyish, rather badly dressed, with no make up on he face. But the studio bosses often seeing Garbo on the screen for the first time become speechless as they saw a true miracle, a great artist. Cameras were found of shorting her. Garbo on the screen was extremely popular.
Garbo life was never social success. Fame couldn_t give her anything but difficulties. She lived modestly, without fine clothes or jewels, without house or an expensive car.
She worked with many film directors, which liked her, because their pictures with Greta Garbo were a great success. This film about the famous actress and a simple woman, in life, made a deep impression on me and it is still fresh in my memory.

European day of languages (Anglų įskaita 2010)

At the initiative of the Council of Europe, Strasbourg, the European Day of Languages is celebrated since 2001 on 26 September.

Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans represented in the Council of Europe’s 47 member states are encouraged to learn more languages, at any age, in and out of school. Being convinced that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent, the Council of Europe promotes plurilingualism in the whole of Europe.

On the occasion of the day, a range of events are organised across Europe: activities for and with children, television and radio programmes, language classes and conferences. National authorities and the various partners are given a free hand to organise activities. To coordinate the activities organised at national level, the Council of Europe asks participating countries to nominate “National Relay Persons” for the day.

The general objectives of the European Day of Languages are to:

– alert the public to the importance of language learning and diversify the range of languages learned in order to increase plurilingualism and intercultural understanding;
– promote the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe;
– encourage lifelong language learning in and out of school.
In keeping with these aims, people, young and old, are encouraged to take up a language, or take special pride in their existing language skills. Also, those responsible for providing access to language learning are encouraged to make it easier for people to learn a range of languages, and to support policy initiatives to promote languages. There is also emphasis on learning a language other than English.

On the occasion of the day, a range of events are organised across Europe, including happenings for children, television and radio programmes, language classes and conferences. The events are not organised by the Council of Europe or the European Union nor do they allocate special funding (i.e. apart from their existing language programmes) for the day. Member states and potential partners are given a free hand to organise activities. To coordinate the activities organised at national level, the Council of Europe asks participating countries to nominate “National Relay Persons” for the day. The national relay in the UK is CILT, the National Centre for Languages. CILT’s website provides a whole host of ideas for activities in schools, colleges, workplaces and communities, with many downloadable materials as well as stickers and posters which can be ordered free of charge.

Free time. tv/ my future house (anglų įskaitos tema) Nr.1

Future house now is dedicated to exploring ideas about better living in modernist family homes that are affordable, efficient, healthy, environmentally responsible and available today.
There is a wide range of types of houses all over the world. I would like to have a detached house which would be located in a suburb of a city. It should be somewhere in the woods… This would allow me to create my own space.
Firstly, the exterior of my house would be very modern. My dream house would be surrounded by a high wooden fence. Secondly, the exterior of my house should be surrounded by palm trees, beautiful exotic flowers and a wonderful green lawn. Inside the back yard you’ll see a modern swimming pool and a garden shed. Next to the swimming pool there should be a porch where I could sunbathe or just relaxing after hard work. The second important reason why I want to have the porch is that I could make a barbeque or a small party with friends. Moreover, under my house should be a basement. Inside it you’ll see a cozy sauna. Apart from this, my house would have French windows, huge skylights, a garage attached to the house and other features including a burglar alarm.
When entering the house all you’ll see is antiquarian furniture. The rooms are spacious and bright. In the sitting-room most dominating colours are red and white, because the room is created in oriental style. It would give me warm feelings. There you can see an interesting fireplace and stone pillars. Beautiful pictures are put up on the walls. The dining-room windows look out at the exotic nature. By the way, inside the house you can see a conservatory. Next to it you’ll see a bathroom. Inside the bathroom there is a huge Jacuzzi! The interior of my bathroom is cosy and nice. Furthermore, the space of my house will give you a lot of peaceful feelings, because the house is surrounded by a wonderful environment.
I would like to have a house like this one. I like a peaceful environment and beautiful nature. I think my future children would be very happy to live in this house

Leisure facilities for young people (Anglų įskaita 2010)

 

What do people like doing during their leisure, what are their hobbies and interests? Now people have much more occupations than earlier. Earlier there was no TV, no radio so people were at home and read books or enjoyed the nature. Some time later the radio and the TV was invented so people spent less and less time for reading books. Now the TV and the radio chains the people and they become coach potatoes. But now all spend their spare time in such a boring way. The people that like to live an active live are much healthier, they aren’t boring; it’s interesting to associate with such people. Its good then people have their hobbies, then they reach some purposes and the life becomes funnier then. My hobby is sporting, because when I have some free time I go in for sports. Then I feel much better, I become more cheerful and livelier. Sometimes I read books, but not often, because I don’t find time for that. If I take a book so I must often read it during a couple days or during a week, because it’s interesting, you want to know what is going to be later and can’t stop reading. But as I have said, I don’t often read books. During my spare time I also like reading newspapers or magazines, because so we people, know what is happening in the world at the moment. When I come home after school, I always listen to the music, it helps me to relax and have arrest after a long day. At weekends I often go to the cinema, it’s better than to sit at home and watch television, because that in the cinema the movies are new and much better and I go to the cinema not alone of course, I go there with my friends and always have a good evening. The theatre, I don’t like going to the theatre because that it isn’t so interesting. Almost all the visitors of the theatre are not younger than 35 or 40 years old. Sometimes I go to the exhibitions, there I know new technologies and it’s interesting. But not often I visit the galleries and the museums, because the museums are already visited and the galleries aren’t my favorite places. Now about the computer. I spend very little time sitting to the computer, because it’s not good for eyes and I don’t have the internet. Sometimes I play some games of course, but not often. I need my computer to write topics too. So, don’t become coach potato and have a good time!

Learning english/ my future job (anglų kalbėjimo tema) Nr.1

There is a time when you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. It happens differently. Some people start thinking about it very early. They usually choose one profession and try to study as hard as they can in order to get the speciality they’ve chosen. So these are the purposeful people. Other people begin to think about their future profession later, when they finish school. It’s understandable. Leaving school is the beginning of independent life, but isn’t it better to prepare for this life earlier?
A few years ago it was difficult for me to give a definite answer about my future profession. I wanted to be a computer programmer. I was becoming interested in computers every day more and more. I’ve studied informatics for a couple of years, and I was successful. There are a few reasons why being a computer programmer is a really good profession. Firstly, there are fyture prospects for this profession these days, in a modern world of technics. Also, I would earn a lot of money. I was thinking that there is no doubt about my future profession, but I was wrong. My doctor said that computer programming is harmful profession to eyes. He said that if I am going to do it for a long time my vision will get really bad. I couldn’t be a computer programmer so I had to think of another profession.
After a couple of years I became interested in the sea and especially in geography. It was like a new world for me. Since I was a little boy I have dreamed about working on the sea. I was dreaming about that kind of job because my city in Lithuania was a seaport and I enjoyed watching the ships coming and leaving the port. I started to study geography and sciences more in order to become a mate and maybe one day a captain of the ship. I’ve heard that mates earn a reasonable amount. Some of them become very rich. And besides I would like to work on the sea and travel around the world, so I will connect two things: profit and fun.
The profession is chosen. And now I have to study very hard. I’ve chosen not the easiest way, and I know that. But I will do my best. I will study as much as I have to and even more. I hope that I will finish school with high marks, enter university, graduate from it, and then I will have the speciality with which the doors will be open for me everywhere.
Some people can argue that becoming a mate isn’t the best choice. I respect everyone’s opinion. But sooner or later, everyone has to choose his future profession. And may your choice be right!

Theatre day at school (Anglų įskaita 2010)

WORLD THEATRE DAY was created in 1961 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI). World Theatre Day is celebrated annually on the 27th March by ITI Centres and the international theatre community, various national and international theatre events being organized to mark this occasion. One of the most important of these is the circulation of the International Message traditionally written by a theatre personality of world stature at the invitation of the International Theatre Institute.

The term theatre is often applied only to dramatic and musical plays, but it properly includes opera, dance, circus and carnivals, mime, vaudeville, puppet shows, pageants, and other forms—all of which have certain elements in common. They are essentially visual; are experienced directly (although film, videotapes, or recorded sound may be incorporated into a performance); and are governed by sets of rules—such as scripts, scenarios, scores, or choreography—that determine the language and actions of the performers; language, action or atmosphere may be contrived, in order to elicit emotional responses from the audience.

We go to the theatre because we want to see something new, to think, to be touched, to question, to enjoy, to learn, to be shaken up, to be inspired, to touch art. It is very important to celebrate Theatre day at schools, since this tradition would help to keep our nationality, patriotizm and artistity. In my opinion, every day must be Theatre Day!

Relationships/ summer holidays (anglų kalbos kalbėjimo tema)

 

Everyone likes going on holiday. Every year we make plans for our summer holiday. There are various ways of spending holidays. You can go to the seaside and enjoy swimming in the sea or lying in the sun. You can just travel to new places, meeting people and sightseeing. A lot of people like traveling to different countries. They like climbing the mountain visiting museums and etc.
First of all my holidays are rather passive. On summer holiday I also prefer lying on the beach. I enjoy swimming in the sea and sunbathing. I don’t usually choose an active holiday, such as skiing or mountain climbing, because on holiday I just want to relax and have a rest. But on the other hand I wouldn’t say that I’m not interested in active holiday and it wouldn’t attract me. Actually my ideal holiday is to visit Italy, the most exciting country. This travel is my greatest dream.
Moreover I’d like to sightsee Rome with its ancient history. I’d like to visit Venece as well in my opinion this city is exciting and strong. Obviosly I’d like to climb Italian mountains.
Finally I prefer to spend my holiday near the sea, because traveling in Italy is rather expensive. That is one of the reasons why I’d stay in our country. But as a matter of feat I promised myself when I have a well paid job, I certainly will go on holiday to Italy.

Welcome to our school (Anglų įskaita 2010)

Children begin to go to school when they turn seven. In the first grade, they are starting to create their own personalities. The first steps are growing up there. The most things are not in the education sphere but in the communications with friends other schoolchildren.
school is a part of our environment from the time they are little children until they are almost grown up. We hear very little of what pupils think of school, and what happens to them there.
At school, pupils spend the most important years of their lives. There they take courage and confidence, make friends and learn to understand life. Whatever school’s years will be remain in their hearts forever. Teachers not only give us knowledge of physics, mathematics, history and etc, but they also teach children to love their Motherland, to be honest and hard working. Furthermore, children are taught how to communicate with others, to work in groups. Moreover, at school, pupils discover new feelings. Teachers teach them how to be friendly, kindly, responsible, how to be in comprehension with others, how to help friends, be polite.
school changes the personality of children so that they care about themselves future. As a result, they are not interested in crimes so that we have not so much young criminals.
At school children are spending time jolly, they are always with friends but also they get lots of knowledge. There pupils can get education. Education is the key to the person’s career. It is very important in person’s life. Everybody wants to have a good job, nice car, big house. However, not for all people it is possible. Education is the key for making their lives better and making their dreams come true.
In my opinion, the school is going to be the most important thing that creates a child’s personality and the way of his life.

Aristotle on friendship
Friendship… is a kind of virtue, or implies virtue, and it is also most necessary for living. Nobody would choose to live without friends even if he had all the other good things….
