V. Time to Listen and Read.
1. Listen to / read the descriptions of three hobbies and say which of them you find exciting/useful/impressive.
Simon: My hobby is collecting stickers. I have pictures of football players and pop stars. I buy packets of stickers and trade them with my friends. We exchange those we already have for the ones we need to complete the set. It is so exciting to get the whole set! I can look through my collection hours on end. Many of my classmates also collect things, such as shells, model cars, dolls, comics, books, stamps, coins or postcards. The only minus of collecting things is that it is an indoor hobby, you know. My mum says that I should spend more time outdoors.
Rachel: Many people like to do something creative, such as painting or drawing, playing music, knitting or sewing, DIY or cooking. They develop their living skills, in a word. My hobby is doing crossword puzzles. I know much about them. Crosswords, or crossword puzzles first appeared in the early 20thcentury. Today, many people regularly do crosswords, sometimes on the bus or train on their way to work. Most newspapers such as “Highlights” and magazines (let’s take “Stone Soup” as an example”) have at least one crossword and there are often prizes for people who send in the correct solutions. I am proud to say that I have won such a prize from the children’s magazine.
Victoria: I have a lot of hobbies. I like to read, and I like to work on computers. But I absolutely love sports. Many of my friends have a sport as their hobby. They do football, basketball, volleyball and tennis. I prefer badminton. It has been a part of my life since childhood. I regularly go to a leisure centre. Twice a week we have practice for about an hour and we have games every Sunday. After a game of badminton I feel good. And I also have a lot of friends in the centre, so I enjoy being with them. It is, you know, a great time with great memories.
“Highlights” – популярний американський дитячий журнал, у якому друкуються кросворди.
Living skills – факультатив в американській школі, в якому дівчата і хлопчики навчаються готувати їжу, клеїти шпалери, шити одяг тощо.
“Stone Soup” – дитячий журнал, у якому друкуються дитячі твори.

5. All the hobbies are expensive.
6. All the children practise their hobbies at home on their own.
