My wife is an economist. She works at the Ministry of Foreign Trade too. She goes to the office every day. My wife doesn't learn English. She already knows English very well. She reads very many English books, magazines and newspapers. At the office she sometimes writes letters to foreign firms. She often translates telegrams from English into Russian and from Russian into English.
My wife's also a student. She learns German and is doing very well. She usually gets good marks and is always in time for the lessons. She likes languages very much and is going to learn French next year.
My wife and I usually go home together. We do our homework in the evening: we learn the new words, read texts and do exercises. We also revise grammar rules. We sometimes speak English at home. We speak about our work and our lessons.
