Topic 1 About my family and myself

First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Victor Kovalenko. I am seventeen years old. I am a pupil of the 11th form. My family lives in Kyyiv in one of the residential areas. My parents have two more kids besides me. Тhus I have got an elder sister Vira and a younger brother Alec, My brother is a schoolboy, too. He is thirteen. My sister is three years my senior. So she is twenty already. She is a designer by profession. She is married. Her husband is a journalist. They are four in the family. She has two children — a son and a daughter. They are twins. They are lovely little kids with golden hair and dark blue eyes.

My parents are not old at all. Daddy is forty four and Mum is four years his junior. My grandparents are already pensioners, but they are still full of life and energy. I have many relatives — aunts, uncles, cousins.

My father is an engineer in computers and my mother is a teacher of English at the University. They like their work very much.

I am fond of reading books on history and fiction. I am going in for sports. I like playing football (soccer), basketball and chess. Especially I am good at chess. I take part in different chess competitions and tournaments.

In a year I shall finish my school and I have to decide what to do: either to apply for a job or for a study. Actually I study well and make some progress in liberal arts subjects. I am particularly interested in history, literature and languages. So I am going to enter the University.
