4. Read the texts below and say what food you can buy at the fishmonger’s, at the confectioner’s, at the butcher’s, at the greengrocer’s, at the baker’s, at the dairy.


Our family has a shopping day. It is Saturday. My father and I usually go to the shops on this day.In the morning we ask mother what we need. We take bags, a shopping list and go to the shops. First of all we go to the butcher’s shop. We prefer to eat sausage and meat instead of fish, that’s why we buy two kilogrammes of meat for a week. My father usually takes some tinned meat for supper. My brother Roman likes to eat eggs and we often buy ten eggs and three chickens for a week.

We usually visit the baker’s shop when we go home. My sister Sonya has a sweet tooth and she likes sweets very much, that’s why my father and I buy a lot of rolls and buns.The shop assistant usually suggests that we buy cakes, biscuits and tasty tea.For example, I like cakes and coffee and I very often ask my father to buy different cakes.

People say that tastes differ. My father likes coffee and cakes too and he agrees to buy them.One day my two friends Yura and Anton came to see me. Yura had a bag in his hand. He said that his mother had sent him to the greengrocer’s shop.

I decided that I should go to the shop too, as my grandmother asked me to buy milk and cheese at the diary. It took us ten minutes to get to the greengrocer’s shop because it was not far from our house.The shop was big. The shop windows were nice.Yura explained that his father had already bought carrots, tomatoes and he had to buy potatoes, onions cucumbers. We looked at the counters and saw fresh vegetables. We asked the shop assistant to weight three killogrammes of potatoes, one kilogram of onions and two kilogrammes of cucumbers. When she had weighted the vegetables she said how much they cost. Yura took money from the pocket, paid for the vegetables and put all the vegetables into his bag. The bag became very heavy and Anton helped Yura to carry it. He thought that a friend in need was a friend indeed.

Then we went to the diary and we bought fresh milk and cheese.When I returned home, my grandmother was glad that I had bought such tasty cheese and fresh milk and she thanked me for shopping.

&3. Read the text about education. Translate it into Russian.

Education in the largest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sense, education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills, and values from one generation to another. The purpose of education up to its highest levels is to develop every individual to their full potential.

Higher education, also called tertiary, third stage, or post secondary education, is the non-compulsory educational level that follows the completion of a high or secondary school. Tertiary education is normally taken to include undergraduate and postgraduate education, as well as vocational education and training. Colleges and universities are the main institutions that provide tertiary education. Collectively, these are sometimes known as tertiary institutions. Tertiary education generally results in the receipt of certificates, diplomas, or academic degrees. In most developed countries a high proportion of the population (up to 50%) now enter higher education at some time in their lives. Higher education is therefore very important to national economies as a source of trained and educated personnel for the rest of the economy.
