I. Прочитайте и переведите следующий текст.
I am a student of the Gomel State University named after F. Scorina. I am in the third year of the correspondence department of the faculty of History. Thus, my future profession is History. Future historians must be knowledgeable and competent in their field. That is why the university course comprises such subjects as World History, the History of the Middle Ages, Contemporary History, the History of Belarus as well as such applied subjects as Logics, Archaeology, Philosophy, Politics, foreign languages, computing and others.
I do my best to have a good command of all the subjects and to master my profession. I am especially interested in Contemporary History as this is an objective history of our times.
In two years my dream will come true, and I will graduate from the University with a degree in History we will work as teachers of History, archivists, archaeologists. Perhaps somebody will become a well-known politician. But we all are and will be united by our love for History. It is a very important subject. Without History we can’t understand our own country, our people. It makes us feel that the past was as real as the present. History not only studies and analyses the facts from the past, but helps understand and predict the events of the future. It is a well-known fact that people who don’t remember the past will have to go through it again. Thus, as you see, the importance of my favourite subject can’t be overestimated.

The Legal Profession
My future profession is that of a lawyer. Lawyers are trained by law institutes and faculties and they work at different law offices – courts, Procurator’s offices, notary offices, The bar the organs of the Ministry of the Interior, etc.
The legal profession is not an easy one. Sometimes because of its difficulty it is compared with the profession of a doctor. What ever we may become – judges, procurators, investigators, notaries – we will have to deal with human destinies.
The activities of the lawyers are aimed at bringing the conduct of the people, their interrelations, their attitude towards the state and the public organizations into accord with the law. Lawyers work a lot for creation of public order and stability, for creation of the legal state. They are in the forefront in the struggle against the criminal phenomena. This struggle consists not only in punishing but also in re-educating offenders. Tremendous work is carried out by the lawyers in eliminating the causes of these phenomena. Lawyers also do a lot to prevent crimes.
There is no need to say how responsible all that work is. To carry it out successfully one needs a high general education level and good professional training. Each of us realizes that to become a lawyer one must arm oneself with great and concrete knowledge. And still after that it is impossible at once to become a good lawyer. Large practice and constant self-education are necessary. Each of us must constantly raise the cultural level. We must know classical and modern literature and art, regularly attend public lectures, theatrical performances, concerts, etc. Mastering foreign languages also contributes a lot to the general education and cultural advance.
Besides, a lawyers is, of course, to be a person of high moral qualities. He must strictly keep to the rules of the community, his conduct is to be irreproachable and he must be an example for other people. He is to be truthful, honest and just.
Every year thousands of graduates from law institutes and law faculties join those who stand on guard of the interests of the citizens and public order. I also want when I become a lawyer to make my contribution to the defence of the people against injustice and to the establishment of the stable, legal state. I have a deep respect for lawyers and I am proud that I will become one of them.
