My favourite subject is English. English is very important as it has become the most used language in politics, science, trade and cultural relations in the world. It is also the language of great literature. Such writers as William Shakespeare, Walter Scott, Charles Dickens and Bernard Shaw wrote in English. It gives me great pleasure to read their books in the original. I learn English at school. I also read English books, magazines and newspapers. I watch video films and listen to songs in English. I have a Walkman, so I often listen to songs or teaching cassettes when walking or in the underground. I write new words on little cards and look them through every evening before going to sleep. I hope that in the future I’ll speak English fluently!
