Everyone wants to live clean, nice and tidy. We like to look at somewhere and say: “What a niece place! How wonderful! Just like in heaven!”. But what are we doing to make the surrounding like this? To my mind just nothing. On the contrary – we do much more to destroy our environment. Living conditions in the world are getting worse and worse. Exhaust fumes and smoke from factories are polluting the air, trees are cutting down, and sstreets are full rubbish and grime. Furthermore rivers are being polluted by chemicals from factories too. In my view there are some solutions to these problems.
First of all I would like to point out that the littering is the most important problem in today’s society. However recycling helps us to liquidate the littering. As well as I know it reduces waste and is good for environment. For example plastic is the hardest material to recycle, because there are so mmany different kind of it. At the moment 2 percent of the plastic is recycled. Metal is another important material. Moreover it is easier to recycle. It is also cleaner and cheaper and uses not much energy. Metal is 100% rrecyclable and can be recycled hundred of times.
Secondly very huge problem is too many cars in the cities. People are buying and buying cars as it very comfortable and save our time. However we don’t know how exhaust gas can harm our health and especially polluted the air. We should improve public transport and ban cars from the city centre. As a result we can enjoy cleaner air and fewer health problems.
Animals are our friends. Like we have our motherland they also want to have and live in their habitat. How can we help them? The answer is clear. We must stop cutting down trees. Everyone who had cut the tree must plant the new one. In addition to this vvery useful will be to put stricter fines.
To sum up we must take care of our surrounding, environment and nature, because we are the part of it. There are many solutions to all problems, but much depends on us. The sooner we put them into practice, the better our life will become.
It is important for everybody to study foreign languages. There are many reasons for it. We need a foreign language when we traveling abroad or for reading foreign materials, ffor business communication, for corresponding with our friends, and for culture spheres. However, when working on computer and using the Internet you must know English perfectly.
My native language is Lithuanian. It is the one of the oldest surviving languages in the world. Our language is difficult for foreigners to learn, because it has a countless number of grammar rules. But there are a lot of foreigners who are eager to learn it. It’s very strange that some Lithuanian people unable to speak their native language very well because they don’t try. I like my native language it makes me a real Lithuanian. I can’t say that I know it very well but I try to learn it more and more.
However I want to speak a bit about English. It is very popular in nowadays. About 85% of people speak English. It is used as native language, as second language or the language, which we have to use in our job. English is official language of the United Kingdom, of the United States of America, of Australia and New Zeeland.
Today schoolchildren can being learning English, German, Russian and French in our country. We have all possibilities to improve mastering of aany language. In our school are classrooms which have dictionaries, cassette recorders, wall charts, maps or pictures in order how to manage ordinary situations. Then I to choose which foreign language I’ll study I have chosen English, because it’s more popular than German or French. I like English and I study it in school since fourth form. I hope that soon I’ll learn to speak it well.
To sum up, knowledge of any foreign language helps us everywhere. The great German poet Goethe once said: He, who knows no foreign language, doesn’t know his own one.
Nobody can imagine his life without media. Newspapers, magazines, radio TV and internet reach you every day. The most serious problem is which of them to choose.
The main source of news for million people is television. I like to get the hottest information. So in every evening I try to watch the news on TV or read the newspaper. Of course not all newspapers and TV programmes report the news objectively, but serious journalists and TV reporters try to be fair and concrete. One of my favorite journalists is Algimantas Čekuolis. To my mind he is very clever and has a lot of experience on aall fronts. Moreover he makes television broadcasting “Afternoon with Algimantas Cekuolis”. In addition to this I like watch all news on TV, but especially Panorama, because it is very informative.
TV is one of the ways to spend our free time. It’s good, that there are some documentary films, which show us the life of wild animals, old civilizations and the lost world. Also TV shows some talk shows, for example “Nomeda”, “Myliu nemyliu”, where we can hear the interesting interviews.
But there is lot of violence in TV films, even in cartoons. And violence has a bad effect on viewers, especially on children and teenagers. They can’t understand what is right or what is wrong and they think that everything is true and start to copy everything and do the same things as “good guys” or “bad guys”.
The Internet or just a web has recently become another important source of information, because you needn’t wait for news on TV. The radio is good to listen in the cars or in the open air or when you do something about the house. Magazines are popularly too, especially among teenagers.
To sum up I want to say that Mass media makes much influence
on people. In our world are many ways to get the hottest information. So we must choose the best and enjoy it.
There are many services in my region.If you want to post a letter or to send a parcel, money or telegram you go to the post office. At the post office you can buy stamps, envelopes and postcards. If you want to send a letter by air mail or a registered one you must go to the post ooffice by all means. Of course you needn’t you needn’t go there with an ordinary letter. You drop it into a letter box on the corner of a street. I also go to the post office; because I have some friends in other towns or countries and I love writing letters them.
Furthermore if you want to have quick arrangements with your friends or other people the best thing is to phone them. If you don’t remember the phone number or yyou cannot find it in your note book, you simply look it up in the telephone directory. Then you are in the street at the bus or even in the school you can used you mobile phone too. Nowadays you ccan easily make international calls as well.
Moreover, when you go to abroad and visit some foreign countries you certainly have to go to a bank, because you need to change your money. This can be done at the Currency Exchange desk. For long journeys it is very useful to take a credit card with you, but not cash.
The most important services are hairdressing, photography, post office, police, fire brigade and hospital. Police station is one of the unpleasant services. You get there when you commit something bad. If you want to do photos it’s no problem, because there are some places there you can make photograph. A Very important service for people’s beauty is hairdressing saloon.
To sum up II want to say that all services are playing a big part of today’s modern life, so we couldn’t imagine our life without services.
The most popular celebrated in Lithuania are: Christmas Eve, New Year’s Day, Mothers day and Easter day.
Christmas Eve in Lithuania doesn’t differ much from this holiday in any other European country.
This is the day when many people are traveling home to be with their families on Christmas Day. Most families decorate their houses with brightly – ccolored paper or holly, and they usually have a Christmas tree in the corner of the front room. There are a lot of traditions connected with Christmas, but perhaps the most important one is giving of presents. People give each other presents and send Christmas cards. For the Christmas Eve supper the table is covered with a pure white tablecloth. A small plate with Christmas wafers is placed in the centre of the table. Twelve different dishes are served on the table such as fish, kuciukai with poppy seed milk, cranberry pudding, a salad of winter, apples, mushrooms and so on.
