It is important to have friends. I have a lot of them. But my
best friend is my classmate Denis. He is fourteen. He is a tall
boy with an oval face and brown eyes. His hair is short and
brown. Denis lives not far from my house. We usually go for a
walk, play computer games and do our homework together. I really
like spending my time with him. Denis is a very good pupil.
Sometimes he helps me with this or that subject.
Denis loves sport. His favourite winter sport is skiing. At
weekends we go to a nearby park and ski together. In summer we
cycle and go rollerblading in the park. Sometimes he goes with
my family to our country house and we swim in the river and pick
up mushrooms and berries in the forest.
I have other friends, too. Katya is not my classmate, she is
older. She studies in the 10th form. She likes plants and has a
big collection of violets at home. She wants to be a biologist
and she knows many interesting things about flowers and plants.
Playing the piano is Katya's other hobby. She plays very well.
Her parents want her to be a musician, but she doesn't want it.
Sometimes I go to her place and listen to her playing.
All of us like computer games. We play together online and have
fun. I think that my friends are very nice and I am glad to have
