As you have guessed I am Vladimir. I'm glad to meet you.
What did you do last weekend?
I was on the mountain “Uktus” and also did housework.
How was your weekend?
On my previous weekend I did very many things: my English, my site, the preparation for the court.
What did you do on the Uktus mountain?
Oh!You have a busy weekend! I went snowboarding. Then, I went to cinema. Now, I am at work. Do you have plans for the next weekend?
I always have plans for the next weekend.
How long have you been snowboarding?
From which mountains did you slide down snowboarding?
Which cities in Russia or in the World did you visit through your hobby?
I am doing snowboarding for two years. I was riding on the mountains Uktus and Volchiha. Unfortunately, I ride in Ekaterinburg, but in the future I want to go somewhere. What are your plans for the weekend?
So you ride on the mountains like someone rides on horseback?
Do you want to immigrate from Yekaterinburg or Russia?
What bad fortune happened that you want to immigrate?
My weekend I will spend at home.
I didn't quite get the first question..This can hardly be called “rides on horseback”. Perhaps, I would to immigrate from Yekaterinburg, but would not from Russia. I'm sorry, I believe you've misunderstood (?). That's not what I mean. I am going to go other countries for travel and riding on snowboards… I love to travel. So… tell me about your weekend? Are you happy with (?) weekends?
When I said “So you ride on the mountains like someone rides on horseback?” I meant that you wrote “ I was riding on the mountains” which sounded unusual to me, because you can ride a bike, a snowboard but not a mountain.
I am happy with my weekends and weekdays.
And are you?
Yes. On the whole, yes. Unfortunately, everything does not always go according to (?) plan, but I'm working on it (?). (?) “Productive weekend” What is it for you?
I would say not a “Productive weekend” but a “Productive week” as far as I am concerned - it is when seven days seem like one day.
What is a “Productive weekend” for you?
To my mind… (?) Productive weekend.. is when a person is busy with (?) useful work. I agree, (?) productive week (?) better productive weekend. I am trying to think that there should be (?) productive week, and not (?) productive weekend. I am trying to use every waking moment (?). Have you spent your time with benefit early? (?)
I see what you mean by a “Productive weekend”/“Productive week”.
I do not get your question about “early benefit”.
I mean, do you always use (?) your time with benefit?
I always spend my time with maximum benefit.
Do you manage to have a day off in the middle of the weekdays?
No, I work five days out of every week. May holidays will be soon, so I'm trying to plan it (?). Do you have (?) plans on May holidays?
Grisha, let's stick to the topic - it is weekend not holidays. :)
Are your days off and weekends similar or different?
Okay. What's the difference between days off and weekends?
Days off are in the middle of the week.
Weekends are in the end of the week, that is Sunday and Saturday.
If understand you correctly, I haven't days off in the middle of the week. If you mean time outside of work (?), I usually go to University. I hope I right understand you. Thanks for the talk, Vladimir.
When I said “Days off” I meant “Days when you are not required to work”. See you later. Take care.
