Let me introduce myself. My name is Uran and I’m 17 years old. I am a first-year student of the English faculty. My dream is to become an interpreter. At school, I was good at languages, that’s why I decided to enter the University of Foreign Languages.
I am doing quite well at the University. My parents are proud of me. I go in for sport. My favourite sport is swimming. At school, I took part in different competitions and once I won the first place. It was a great day for me and I will remember it forever.
In my free time I like to play guitar and listen to music. I’m into rap. Eminem is my favourite rapper. Sometimes together with my friends, I go to the computer club to play computer games. I am interested in football. My favourite team is Manchester United. At the University, I joined our sport club and now I am a goalkeeper of the football team. I can play chess and I often play chess with my father in the evenings. I am fond of reading. My favourite book is Nomads.
Last summer I visited my grandparents. They live in Jana Quat. I made friends with many children there. Now we keep in touch with each other. We have a lot in common, that’s why we chat on the Net and share our views on various topics. I don’t phone my friends. I think that writing e-mails is better than writing letters.
