Axel is an orphan. He helps his uncle with his work. His uncle, Professor Liddenbrook, is a very learned man: a scholar and a scientist. He studies rocks.

Gulliver’s travels in Lilliput Swift's masterpiece appeared in 1726. It tells of the adventuresof a ship surgeon. As the result of a shipwreck Gulliver finds himself in a country, inhabited by a race of people about six inches high. Everything else in this country is on a correspondentscale. Swift meant this small country with it's shallow interest,corrupted laws and evil customs to symbolize the England of the 18'th century.
MY FAMILY-TREE MY GRANNY I have never seen my grandparents. All of them died before my birth. I’d like to tell you about my grandmother. She was my mother’s mother. Her name was Alexandra. When she was 16 in 1945 she and her little sister remained alone because their father was killed in the war and their mother died. My Granny decided to leave their village. She and her little sister put their simple belongings together and set of for another village on foot. When they got necessary place my Granny found a dwelling and started work in the collective farm. She earned their living and her little sister went to school. My Granny knew how to act. She didn’t give her sister to the children’s home despite of she was told about it. I’m proud of her.
The place where I’d like to spend my summer holidays The place where I’d like to spend my summer holidays is a desert island. Let me explain my choice. Recently I have read “Robinson Crusoe” by Daniel Defoe in English. This book is about a sailor from York who lived during twenty-eight years on the desert island near the mouth of the river Orinoco where he was thrown with the shipwreck. He found himself on an desert island, with no other land to be seen, except some rocks. Ship’s complement except Robinson Crusoe perished. His adventures on this island gained my attention. I’d like to have personal experience of difficult situations. The best traits of Robinson when he lived on the island were dedicated work, courage, will, inventiveness and thirst for life. Everybody must have these remarkable traits. Where there is a will there is a way. That’s why I’d like to spend my summer holidays on the desert island.
Thank you for your attention
