Text I

Leisure is an important part of students’ life at our university. I must study hard and it is very necessary to have an opportunity for entertainment and a rest too. On weekdays I have not enough time for leisure. After two classes (at 11.50) there is a forty minutes break for lunch. After three classes (at 14. 05) there is a thirty minutes break. It is time to share the latest news with my fellow-students and to discuss our problems.  I like going on foot from university up to our student hostel which is situated in Studencheskaya Street. It takes me about thirty minutes. It is also a kind of my daily free time activities. In the evenings I have a chat with my parents and friends. I call them using Viber or WhatsApp, but often I use social websites such as VK (VKontakte), Facebook and Instagram. Once a month I visit my family and I like to play with my cat.

I like to visit different events. There are cultural, sport and entertaining events at Yugra State University and in Khanty-Mansiysk, such as Studencheskaya Vesna, Spirit of Fire, The Opening of Artistic Season, Biathlon Competitions, different meetings etc.

Free time is a high time for doing hobbies. My hobbies are: reading articles about law and different cars, listening to rock and classical music, watching videos, going to the theatres, museums and to the swimming pool and driving the car.

 I am a member of drive club “Drive2 HM” and” we organize different events.


Vacation is my favorite time! Students of Yugra State University have summer and winter vacations. I like travelling, but it is an expensive sort of leisure for a student. Winter vacation lasts two weeks from the end of December to the second decade of January. I visit my native town and see New Year with my parents and friends.

 In winter I usually practice skiing and snowboarding. In summer I am fond of sunbathing and riding a motorbike with my friends. I like speed. We also visit rock concerts in the open air. It is one of the popular events among bikers. Sometimes I have to repair the motorcycle and to take care of it. I like riding a motorbike and driving a car for long distances.


 Leisure has not just seasonal character of activity. It is connected with longtime hobbies depending on personal interests. A lot of my fellow students to study languages, gaming, hanging out with friends, taking photos.
