Урок 9: Конструкция There is / There are

  1. Read the text:

I have got a big and comfortable room on the first floor of our house.

There is a big window with silk curtains in it, so my room is full of light. I spend a great deal of my time in this room: I do my homework, listen to the music, read books and chat with my friends in the Internet.

The wallpapers are white with light green flowers. There is a poster of my favourite music band above my bed. There is also a round mirror hanging on the wall and a small table under it. In the mornings I do my hair in front of it.

I also have a big desk with a table lamp on it. I do my homework at it and sometimes draw small pictures with colour pencils. I keep my workbooks and exercise books on the shelf above the desk. It is very convenient, as I have everything at hand while doing my homework.

My bed is not big, but cosy. I like reading in bed before going to sleep, so I have a wall bracket lamp on the wall. I have a lot of books and there is a bookcase near my bed. I like my room very much.
