People remember special gifts or presents they have received. Why?

Why do people remember special gifts or presents they have recieved? I think that the main reasons are a pleasure from obtaining the present and free cost of a present . Most important, the present is always a sign of attention , it expresses the feelings of a person who is giving it. Therefore, people remember the gifts because they remind them of the feelings of other people. 
First, people like to obtain things, especially good things. The gifts are usually expensive. Everybody choose gifts very careful, try to take the best one. And when you recieve a useful nice thing you sure will remember it.
Second, the gift is always free. In life where all most every pleasure is worth money, every free thing gives you a special joy. One day my grandfather told me that every good thing in this world must cost about three hundred dollars, for example a new bike, a computer, ticket to the sea, but the best things are always free. Maybe that’s just a joke, but the best moments in my life were free for me. The studies of psychologist showed that we use reverse logic. It means that if the best things are free, then every free thing is the best. That’s why people remember presents. 
Final, the gift isn’t just a thing you can buy by your own it’s always a sign of care from other person. People recieve presents in special days from close friends. Therefore, things remind about people. And as you remember other people, you will remember the presents they gave you.
To sum up,  people remember good gifts because presents are expesive things. Presents are free and people think about free things more careful. And gifts remind about the feelings of other people.

 Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Playing
games teaches us about life. Use specific reasons and examples to
support your answer.
Do games teach us about life? I agree with that. I think games teach us a lot and can help us in real life situations. Social games help us in communication, logic or strategic games develop our cognitive abilities. Overall, games give us information about ourselfs and make us think about self-improvement.
First, games help us to understand people better. A lot of games are social, they require from two to even several tens of players. In team games like football or basketball people have to make decisions together, understand intentions of each other, even predict player’s behavior. That improves their communication skills. The more you play in games, the more you understand behavior of other people. You easily resolve conflicts, better understand work partners and even faster find common language with children.
Second, games train our mind. Logic games like chess requier systematic analysys, prediction of partners turns and strategic thinking. To illustrate, i want to say that playing chess in childhood directs me to the mathematics. When i see that math isn't more difficult then my favorite chess, i stopped to worry and start to learn it deeper. If i hadn't play chess, i would never be an engineer. Therefore, game helped me a lot in real life.
Finally, all games give us information about ourself. Do we fear obstacles or enemies? How do we manage our time? How smart are we? You can answer all this question just playing a game, you don’t need to spent extra money and go to psychologist.
For these reasons, games teach us how to communicate with people, how to be smarter and even who you are. Furthermore, some people say that that life is a game too. If you want to know more about life, play games.

 Holidays honor people or events. If you could create a new holiday, what person or event would it honor and how would you want people to celebrate it? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
If i could a create a new holiday, i would make a great three-day holiday called “Farewell to Summer” in the end of summer. It would honor the ending of hot days of summer.  
There are some practical reasons why i would choose this event. In summer people usually don’t work and go to resorts or to country. And when the summer ends they suddenly start to work. Children quickly change their day’s order and go to school. People need some time to change their daystyle before starting to work, children need take extra notification that summer is ending. And the new holiday perfectly suits their needs, it allows accommodate them softly.
Beside that the summer end is a beautiful time, one of my favorite one. Nature is really awesome, the weather is brilliant, the sun shines and water is warm. There are so many things you fall in love every summer, so why don’t celebrate them? Take a journey with your friends, go to nature. You can walk on parks or go to concerts, and everywhere you would encounter joyfull faces. People would gather together in open air, dance, listen to music and play with children. That would be your favorite event of the year, even better when cold New Year.
In some countries there are the same celebrations but in the other time like in the beginning of spring. But in my country the best time for the new event is the end of summer, because there no any other celebrations. That’s another reason to create this holiday.
This new holiday is useful, however some people would prefer to continue their holiday rather then take part in the new event. Because they have to make a shedule, make appointments with friends. It would take some time and energy but i think the celebration is worth for it!

 80. Describe a custom from your country that you would like people in
other countries to adopt. Explain your choice using specific reasons and examples. 
There is a not old custom in my country that consist in giving small presents to your new neighbors when you settle in a new house. There are many benefits especially in our modern society. You express your peaceful attitude to people, start to talk with them and know them better. You even can find some common interests discussing these presents. At least you will know the people who live near you. And this custom must be very useful in other countries, especially in high-developed, where people usually know nothing about their neighbors.
To start with, i must mention that this tradition is comparatively new. My grandparents didn’t know about these small presents when they moved from country to Moscow in 1950s. But since early 70s evey new habitant has given small presents to neighbors. And in the last year i got a present from my new neighbors, that means that the custom is still alive.
Although it’s a new tradition and not well-known, it’s so useful that it will be very popular in the nearest future. First of all, you introduced yourself and make the acquaintance of neighbors. Even a small conversation tell you a lot about people there. In addition, they recommend you some places, shops or beware you of something in this area.Then you can find common interests or even new friends. It will help you a lot in the future. For example, you can make a strong relation with someone you like and ask him to keep a key from your door or feed your fishes if you go to resorts. So, this custom is a good start of relations.
I think that the custom of giving presents when you move to a new house is very useful and suits to every country. Because the partnership, good wills are respected in every culture. So this tradition gives you a big response, even if the presents would be small.

57. Some movies are serious, designed to make the audience think. Other
movies are designed primarily to amuse and entertain. Which type of
movie do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support
your answer.

About 100 years ago, when the cinema was in childhood, V. Lenin said that in new soviet Russia the main arts would be cinema and circus. He believed that both of them are made only to help people rest after a hard work. Although a lot of people think the same, i strongly prefer watch serious movies. They bring a lot of emotions and pleasure, the make me think deeper about philosophical and everyday problems, teach me and educate. In addition, i like to discuss with other people about controversial episodes in such kind of movies.

First, serious movies give me more emotions then the light one. Let’s look closer on light entertainment movies. How many have you watched and how many do you remember what they were about? I remember all most nothing about them. When i watch them 2nd or 3rd time, they looks like completely new for me, but not so interesting however. In contrast, a deep serious movie is usually in my memory all my life, i even can see some episodes when i sleep.  These movies have strong and long impact on my psychic. And even if they make me cry, these tears fresh my soul like a summer rain clears a dusty road.

Second important thing is that deep movies teach me a lot about life, relations between people and so on. I’ve encountered so many existential questions, philosophical problems in movies as in books.  Moreover, they even brought a lot of tricks in my everyday life.

The last important property of serious movies is their social aspect. I can repeat two or three jokes from light movie in conversation, but i can talk hours about deep movies. Furthermore my first conversation with new people usually are about their favourite movies! And if we shared some of them - be sure - we would know each other better.

To ware up, i definitely prefer serious movies because of their influence on my psychic, education aspects and a large field for discussion.  Fortunately, there are so many serious movies in the world that they would impress me all my life.
