В семейном клубе "Friendly English" открыта запись в новую группу.
I am reading a fun book right now and enjoy myself a lot. The book is called "What your birthday reveals about you". I don't like horoscopes, but it is always interesting for me to read about character traits of people I know and see how accurate the description is. So here is the extract from the book about people who were born on the 13th of September. I am one of them. It is 99% about me. So I thought that it is so much fun, that I will use that book with my students, it will help them to start talking about themselves and also get to know their groupmates.
The ambitious virgin born on this day has an in?nite capacity for hard work. Structure and order are the touchstones of your existence. Leaving nothing to chance, you formulate your plans carefully and carry them out with precision and ef?ciency. Your realistic view of life gives you great respect for wealth, status, and other manifestations of worldly accomplishment. Yet despite your preoccupation with practical problems, humanitarian concerns loom large in your mind. You are charitable and caring, with a compelling need to serve society in some meaningful way.
Those celebrating birthdays on September 13 possess a strong sense of purpose and an indomitable will that keeps them going long after others have run out of steam. Although you may have to overcome many obstacles on your way to the top, the ultimate outcome is never really in
As a lover or friend, you’re extremely loyal and totally dependable. Because of your workaholic tendencies, you may appear less interested in love and romance than you really are. When you let yourself relax and follow your emotions, you make an extremely thoughtful, kind, and considerate mate or partner.
I am not really on my way to the top as I am not climbing a carreer ladder. But I can say that I try to grow as much as I can and every year I learn new skills. So I am on my way to the top of my personal and professional growth. Even though I respect people who earn degrees and get promoted, I never wanted to be one of them. Most of my life I earned money by doing what I enjoyed doing.
My sister was born on the 2nd of September and her character has nothing in common with mine. I often wondered why she was so different and so sweet if we had the same parents. So I couldn't help smiling when I read about her.
Oh, I was vinegar in my family, often aggressive, straightforward and outspoken. And my sister gets what she wants not by fighting but by compromising.
