The man in the picture is a soldier. What's his name? Well everyone has to have a name, lets call him Ivan, or mabye Stefan. Actually, he's an officer.
He received a parcel andhe's looking at the parcel to see whats written on it, he's also very happy and he's smiling.
Of course he feels well and he's happy, he was a general in the army and earned alot of money. Officers in the army receive alot of money. But he's not so clever or intelligent (Arkadi).
Yes, he does have the face of a soldier.
He's come back froma holiday, he finished to work and he's brought back lots of presents and he wants to share them out.
Maybe he's collecting money?
No, he received presents and he wants to give them to the children.
He also has sweets to give to the children, he has boxes of sweets to give out.
He's thinking about his wife and his daughters and his family, and he's abit sad and jealous, he remembers his childhood and he's jealous of the children that are going to receive the sweets and presents (Arkadi).
His arms are full of gifts, maybe it's a festival?
He's come back from a holiday and has brought presents for everyone.
Yes, it's in Russia, in a village called Petronov,you can see the snow.
No - it's in Anerica (Genia), there is also snow in America.
Only in Russia are there houses as we cansee in the picture. Small houses of one story with a wooden fire in the middle to heat up the rooms around.
He's not so young, he's dressed modestly and he lives not far away, with jis wife and children.
I know him, he brings us lots of good things every winter (Antonina).
His wife is called Svetlana and one of is daughters is called Anna.
What presents has he brought for his wife and daughters? I asked
Not everyone has the same taste.
Women love rings and necklaces.
He's brought a dress and a neck scarf for his wife (Arkadi).
But his wife loves money!
Soon he's going to return home and have a drink with his family and with his parents, because it's a holiday....
