II. Main part
 
Listening
 
The poem “Press”
 
Lots of newspapers and magazines are nice,
There is always a good piece of advice.
There are interviews with well-known people
And about creative craft with needle.
There we can find a lot of articles and facts
About national and international events.
They provide material about good housekeeping,
Family pets, gardening and modern knitting.
For diet, fashion; clothes and cooking
Modem women today are cooking.
All these things they always can find
In the sections of magazines of any kind.
Press can be daily, weekly or monthly publicated.
It increases our outlook and imagination.
It’s very useful and important in our life.
It gives us some knowledge, pleasure and light.
 
T. Have you ever heard about Canadian singer Avril Lavigne? What can you say about her life or creation?
